      Feels like home”

      While walking down the main street with our backpacks upon arrival in Koh Tao, the manager of Gecko Jungle Hostel saw the exhaustion in our faces, and with a friendly smile, offered us a seat at the restaurant and free wifi to help figure out our accomodation. While sitting in the very clean, vegan restaurant, we enjoyed the atmosphere and decided to check out the rest of the hostel. The upstairs area has a nice hangout spot with a balcony over the street perfect for chilling in hammocks. The dorm beds are nice with loads of privacy, and large lockers are provided along with A/C. The bathrooms are outstanding with large showers and clean floors. Overall, the entire hostel has a friendly vibe and you feel at home here, not to mention that everything is entirely eco-friendly! Would definitely recommend for anyone that wants a clean/comfortable stay, but also a social atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff.

      Great little hostel”

      Having stayed in 4 hostels in Koh Tao, this is definitely my favourite. It doesn't have any extras like swimming pools (but who needs them on an island anyway?) or a restaurant. But it does the basics of being a hostel very well, including high-tech bracelet keys that give you room and locker access. Everywhere was clean. A lovely touch: they made me breakfast when I checked in around 12pm! Vegans: no vegan breakfast option.

      Come for the babaganoush... stay for everything else!!”

      I loved my stay at the gecko! The room was clean, the bed comfortable, and the shower was EVERYTHING!! Seriously, its not just the water pressure, but they have this organic shampoo that smells fantastic. The staff is also very friendly and always willing to help with anything you need, whether its information or a ride somewhere. Breakfast is included which is always something I look for, and it's not the typical hostel breakfast of toast and eggs either. No, the gecko does breakfast right with your choice of either a smoothie bowl or french toast. Actually, they do all of their food right! This is a vegan, eco friendly establishment, and their food is incredible! Even if you don't end up staying here, you have to come for the tapas! ESPECIALLY THE BABAGANOUSH!!

      Nice Location with good breakfast”

      The Gecko Hostel ist very new with nice and clean facilities. The rooms are little smal, but they have big lockers witch is good and also the beds are not to small. The staff was very friendly and cleaned beds and bathroom twice per day. There 2 meeting areas to chill out. Sometimes ist can be little noisy there AS they outside next to the Streetfood, but it was not to bad. Very good were the chocolate waffles with banana for breakfest. I would definitly recomend the Hostel.
