Chill ass place”
This place is really chill and super friendly. I used to live on Koh Tao and would hang out there with various friends who stayed and worked there. I came to know the staff so sometimes I stay there when I visit now because it’s so chill. By Thailand standards, it’s very clean and well taken care of. It’s definitely well above average as far as budget stays go. For the money, it’s hard to beat. The bed was comfortable as well...which of course is rare in this country.
Chill Out at Summer Guesthouse ”
Summer Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay as a backpacker on Koh Tao. Nicky, the owner is super accommodating and friendly. The rest of the staff are always helpful as well. At night, Summer becomes a hang out for locals and people staying. The hostel is a close walk to Sairee beach and the little town. If you want to see the rest of the island, scooter is a great way to do it and Summer rents them to you. All in all a perfect way to spend your holiday! Would highly recommend both Summer Guesthouse and Koh Tao!
Should not be here”
AC,TV r not worked. Dỉrty. Charge 400 a person if wanna stay more
Nice but at night very loud room”
Stayed in 2-bed-room with A/C and balcony. Bathroom a little old, but everything working well and clean. Fridge, blowdryer, tv, safe and waterkettle available. Everything worked, even though the tv only receives 3 Programms. Fridge does make some noises, as well as the a/C, which is ok. What really bothered us was the loud setting: many dogs barking (especially the 2 neighbor's dogs), hearing every word being said in the next room and especially the bikes arriving at the Store at the other side of the street and them going up and down the hill in the night. I litterly woke up 50 times a night due to the poor sound-damping. (We were facing the street only indirectly and it was really, really loud). This is why i Would not recommend your guesthouse to people, who want to sleep well, I am really Sorry.
large clean rooms have microwave and toaster in small kitchen area if you are on hostel budget. the manager a little testy not the typical thai smile everything worked well
Great wee place to stay ”
I really enjoyed my stay here. Myself and 4 friends stayed 6 nights and had a great time. Staff arranged for a taxi to collect us from the ferry at a reasonable price. And also arranged a taxi to take us back again when we left. It was a short walk down the hill to the main shops and restaurants and also the beach. There were also a few restaurants close by if you didn't feel like walking and a 24 hour supermarket across the road which was very handy. The rooms were a good size, clean and fresh bottles of water every day. There was airconditioning, a balcony and a fridge as well as a free to use safe. The only downside for me was that it was quite noisy at night. Noise from other guests socialising downstairs, mopeds going past at all hours and dogs barking. The windows didn't seem to drown any of it out unfortunately but it was tolerable. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others, just bring earplugs!
I dont have much to say. decent place but only issue is the lack of pressure with the shower. Makes showering and getting rid of sand hard after the beach.
Thank you for your comments. Since your stay 6 months ago we've upgraded the water pump so this should hopefully no longer be an issue
We are two round the world travelers and we have spent many nights in all types of hostels. We didn't like this stay at all and considered leaving halfway through the stay. 1. The staff was not friendly. It seemed like we where an inconvenient guest staying in a hotel with a close clique group. 2. The hostel is located down a road away from main beach area. We have walked down lots of Thai roads, but this one wasn't safe. Trucks and bikes speeding down the road. We saw two people get hot by bikes, and we almost got hit twice. The location would be okay is the Taxi service on the island wasn't expensice. The min we paid for a 1 min ride was 300 baht. 3. The hostel always smells like smoke from people burning garbage nearby. 4. The dogs in and around the hostel bark all night long. Overall you can find a better hostel / hotel nearby with friendly staff and groups of people who want to hang out.
Thank you for your comments and sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. We have a friendly, social hostel with staff available 24 hours a day to help with anything you may need. Had you not been rude and abusive to the staff and actually made the effort to sit and chat with the other guests I think you would have had a completely different experience. We clearly state that we are a 7-8 minute walk from Sairee beach and the road is perfectly safe providing you're not one of the idiot tourists who chose to walk down the middle of it - you wouldn't do that back home so why here? During your stay there were no accidents on the road up to Summer so to use that as a negative for the hostel seems a little unfair. We can organise cheaper taxis, for example a pick up from the pier would have been just 200 baht for both of you. It sounds like you didn't like Koh Tao as a whole which is a shame because it's an amazing island with lots of amazing people and things to do, places to eat etc.
Bad value for money”
Pros : Kitchen with microwave available. Room was clean. Cons : Worst Wi-Fi we've had in our trip. Worst water pressure in shower we've seen in our trip (water sometimes litteraly stopped flowing). Noisy at night, even after 11. Some of the staff wasn't very professional : they were hard to identify as they were sitting on bean bags, smoking and on their cell phones. Some of the staff made us feel like we were bothering them when we asked them questions. After our 1st night, the towels weren't changed. We asked the staff for a new set since we had put them on the floor to be changed. We were told that they didn't change towels every day even if the towels were on the floor and had to argue to get a new set. Would not recommend.
Great Hostel! ”
The staff was extreamly helpful when we had question and with setting up all our activities for the day, the rooms were clean and spacious, and the walk to the town/beach was only 5-10min! The only negative was the air condistioning stopped working the last night. Other than that we loved it!
This is the perfect place to stay at when in Koh Tao. It was clean and the location is great because its far enough to not hear the bar music but close to all activities. All the staff were very helpful and the owner is very friendly. We will be staying here again!
Great guest house”
We stayed for 3 nights and loved this guesthouse. From the moment we arrived the staff were extra friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the island. You could book up various bits round the island from here with ease. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with an extra comfy bed and excellent AC. The place had a common room downstairs which always had people in chatting away which was nice and friendly. The guesthouse itself was only 5 mins walk away from town with excellent restaurants near by. I can't recommend summer guest house enough. Thanks again to Nikki and her team for everything.

No thank you guys, it was a pleasure having you stay :)
Pros: Our room was very big. The location is also away from the downtown area, so it was more quiet. And the super market across the street was great. And if I remember correctly the wifi was good. Cons: It's a bit of a walk to get to the little downtown area. We had a moto most of the time so it was fine, but it's a solid 8-10 minute walk with a slight uphill incline on the way back home. This place is also a hostel, so there was quite a bit of noise until quiet time. Not a big deal, but if you're trying to go to bed early, beware. The biggest complaint was this terrible smell coming up from the sink / shower. Maybe they had a sewer problem, but it was really bad.
Thank you for your comments - we're glad you enjoyed your stay. As you mention we do enforce quiet time so that anyone wanting to carry on can leave for the parties in Sairee and anyone remaining at Summer can be ensured a good nights sleep. It's the shower drain that creates the smell - Thai's don't build u-bends into the drainage system to eliminate to odours. We have fitted special drain covers which, providing they remain wet (the daily clean and the customer showering normally being sufficient) traps any smells. We will re-check the system in your room to make sure it is working as it should so thank you for letting us know.
Divine! Fabulous staff and room out of this world”
Hotel staff were amazing, helpful and informative and always welcoming. Great atmosphere and gorgeous dogs in the main hotel lobby. We stayed in a private double room and it was akin to a 5 star hotel, all the essentials, superb decor and balcony. Super cheap takeaway next door and supermarket right opposite. Walking distance to the main hub. Highly recommended!
Best place ever”
I can not recommend this place enough. The staff and the people is the best part about. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. Its not as much of a party, but more of a sociable atmosphere. There os a big sottong area where everyone gathers around and spends time together. The location is perfect, as you are close to everything. The hostel also can organise anything from snorkeling to taxi withouy any extra charge. Just Brilliant. This place is a must in Koh Tao.
We stayed in guest house and our room was large and well equipped. Supermarket across the road and only a 5 minute walk to the Main Street.
great location, amazing staff”
nicky and the staff were great and helped a lot with bookings and such, spacious rooms, great people at the dorms, amazing vibes
It's people like you that help create the amazing vibe so thank you for coming to stay :)
Such a good hostel to stay at. The bed was very comfortable and the room was great. Best thing about this place is the people, Nikky is a great host, every single thing that you needed she helped. Also the people who stayed with us at the same time were awsome, so you will definitly meet some new poeple! The place is close to everything and has a 24/7 market across the street
Disappointed by it's rating on Agoda and reality ”
Mixed appreciation for the staff. A VIP room that loses Mark's for it's bathroom and wc. There's no place to put toiletries while taking a bath. The bed is not really made everyday. The duvet is just straightened on the bed without any sense of tidyness. There's a supermarket just opposite the hotel and local food sold 20 metres away. Both are quite convenient. Yoga classes are also available for guests and transport arrangements can also be booked at reception.
Thank you for your comments. I think we've already rectified the issues with the staff but if you are able to discuss this further I would appreciate your assistance to make sure this doesn't happen again. I will definitely look into your comment on the beds not being made - the rooms are cleaned every day unless the customer requests us not to and they should be left clean and tidy. Also, we have now ordered shelves for the bathrooms so when you come back to visit you should have somewhere to place your toiletries :)
Awesome place with awesome people! ”
Very friendly vibe. Great for solo travelers cuz the place has got a nice homely feel. Staffs are nice, friendly, cool people who organize the right events at the right time. The place has got a 24hr open mart infront, a sunset yoga sessions, 10min walk to the beach, clean facilities, hot water.. what more can you ask? It's a five out of five for me !
