When you have to break your shower into 3 parts to let the sewage retreat back down the drain, you know you're in trouble!
We picked this place on Koh Tao as we wanted to be closer to the action on Sairee Beach. However, it turned out to be horrible to the point where I feared for my health!
The rooms were dilapidated, with holes in the walls and furnishings basically falling apart. The windows wouldn't even operate properly. The worst part was the bathroom. It stank of sewage (making the whole room smell) and sewage would literally back flow up the shower drainage hole.
The pillows were covered in mould inside the pillowcases and the bed was quite uncomfortable. Located right opposite Star Bar you are guaranteed to have ridiculously loud music which will keep you up till 3 in the morning even with earplugs in.
The people who run this place obviously don't care and are just running it into the ground. The worst part is, it isn't even cheap. Well over 1000bht a night for the kind of place I described! there are heaps of places on Koh Tao for cheaper and better and we checked out super quick and found one ourselves.
The best part is that the guy at reception ripped us off on a cab ride out too telling us it was a 250bht trip which turned out to be about 400 meters away.
