“So much fun!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013 via mobile

I came to Koh Tao and intended to stay for about four days but ended up staying nearly two weeks because I had such a blast at Spicytao and didn't want to leave. I met some amazing people staying here and the social atmosphere was great. The guys running the hostel were a big part of why the place was so much fun. They plan snorkeling trips, BBQ's and other things that will make your stay in Koh Tao completely memorable. This was one of my favorite hostels during all of my travels throughout SE Asia, make sure to check it out!

I arrived at Spicy Tao with no idea what to expect and my stay there turned into one of the best experiences of my life! Its a pretty basic hostel but for the price what do you expect?! What makes this place so special is the people who run it. Pong, Rupert, Jaine & Paul are the most vibrant, friendly, excitable and genuine bunch of people you could ever hope to meet and they create an atmosphere that no other hostel I have been in has been able to replicate. Its like a family but without any of the baggage :P

I went there with my girlfriend and left with ten other people we had met at the hostel.

If you love socialising and you aren't a fussy and pretentious then Spicy Tao is the place for you :D

Room Tip: All the rooms are pretty well sound proofed so even if you are right next to the social area you won...
