          10 minute walk to Sairee Beach”

          I actually booked this Khun Ying House hotel but was put in another room around the corner at Good Dream Hotel, which is actually a much nicer hotel so I was happy! There is a cluster of hotels and guesthouses here that must all work together. I was 10 minutes from Sairee Beach and had a very large room with everything I needed. The room was very clean, quiet, the large balcony was good. I wish I was a bit closer to the beach, and I saw ittle ants in the bathroom, but still a great value. I recommend.

Walking distance to everything but not too close to the bars so you can get a good nights sleep. We would definitely stay again! Thanks Khun Ying House for making our stay at Koh Tao amazing!

          We were three girls who stayed at Khun Ying House for a week. First we had a standard room with fan, not recommended because its the room was way to hot. We changed to a room with aircondition. Beautiful room with bathroom for a cheap price. The staff was helpful and nice and helped us book tours. Its close to the beach, resturants, bar and shopping.

          if you want to stay in a hostel/dormroom on koh tao the good dream hostel (which belongs to khun ying house) is the best option. the rooms are clean, with lockers and aircondition and the beds are also nice. i would recommend the hostel to any backpacker who wants to stay on koh tao. also the beach, main street and many restaurants and diving schools are just in walking distance.

          Price, Staff, Location

          We stayed here for 3 nights, the location was perfect, in Sairee Beach but just far enough from the main beach path for it to be quiet! Literally a few minutes walk from the beach. The staff were friendly and we booked travel to PhiPhi plus a snorkelling trip through the hotel. We had a fan room for 3 people, each day we were given bottles of water and fresh towels, it was clean and there weren't any bugs, we didn't get bitten once. The bathrooms are shared, but only between 4 rooms and there were 2 toilets and 2 showers (powerful compared to other showers in Thailand!)- I never had to wait to use one.

          Comfortable beds, close to everything, quiet

          My stay and Khun Ying was great overall. The staff are kind and attentive. My only gripe is possibly a miscommunication. Rooms are to be cleaned each day and our was not for 4 days. I asked if it could be done, the manager said yes - but it was not done. The second time asking was the charm - it was cleaned right away and from then on. The issue: On the first day, the cleaning staff by accident took a friend's towel since it was the same colour as theirs, and then were worried that we would say something was stolen from our room. It all got worked out in the end. =)

          Koh Tao is a lovely island and Khun Ying House wasn't bad at all. It was relatively clean, the only thing is we had to keep asking them to come clean our floor and bathroom, as 8 people sharing becomes quite messy!

          The staff was very friendly and helped me to obtain ferry tickets and set up a snorkeling day trip. The room is air conditioned and kept clean, and it was a cool group of people staying in the hostel. It is located just a few minutes walk from all the bars in Sairee Beach. The beach itself wasn't very impressive (very rocky not too deep in), but it's a fun place to stay before or after Full Moon Party.

          close to the city and beach

          we pretty much enjoyed our stay. we booked it for 5 nights and were pleased with low price as koh tao is much more expensive than samui or phangan. nevertheless there are some cons: there is construction work going on and it might last until june 2012. the new building will me like 1m away from existing one, so it's gonna be quite packed. and last thing that really made us mad was that we left our stuff and food for children to the reception and housekeepers' fridge and when we returned after 3 hours to pick it up, there were some items (muesli, lencils, nuts etc) missing. got very bad taste from this incident. but the family in reception was always very helpful.

I only stayed 3 nights and the guy said he will fix this, so it should be good by now. But anyway you don't need hot showers in hot Thailand ;)

          a fab place to stay”

          frendly & helpfull staff, great internet connection, loved the balcany view

          i loved everything about this hotel. may be a little far out for some as the entertainment was further down the road. excellent for meeting fella travelers and passing on info and stories. the beach across the road. travel and arrangements made in the reception area there was no need to shop around all tours seem to be the same price. excellent value would definably go again

          Better places to stay!”

          Wifi very good & location not bad

          Man at desk with ponytail not very friendly. Tried to get me to buy more expensive ferry ticket when I asked for info, when I said I thought there were cheaper prices. Oh yes, there are other options. Later when I went to book a different was there, when he found out I wanted the later, cheaper ferry he said it was unreliable, had not ran for a couple of days & he could not give me a refund of my money if ferry didn't run? Really what happens to the $$. I went next door, they were very helpful, ferry had run that day & before, plus he said if ferry couldn't go he would refund $$. What a difference. However the reviews seem intertwined with names, location. The other 2 locations are much nicer. Would not recommend to stay at Khun Ying.
