Stayed here back in August 2010. Compared to hostels in the rest of Thailand this is a bit over priced however, Koh Tao is generally more expensive so due to its location, this was good value for money. Rooms were clean but did get a bit hot however, this can be expected in a hot climate. Staff were helpful and friendly. I did feel that 1000baht (£20) for a key deposit was quite steep but you do get this back so its not to much of a problem, just don't lose it! I did find the DJL bar was quite clicky but there are many other places to go, may of just come at the wrong time. Overall, I would probably stay again. I'm coming again around July time and will see if any where else has sprung up since my last visit but will most likely end up staying here again.due to price
