Koh Tao Backpackers is in central Sairee, Koh Tao.
Koh Tao Backpackers Hostel is affordable for everyone. Koh Tao often spelt Ko Tao was discovered by backpackers many years ago and diving made the Koh Tao a popular destination. Today though many resorts on Koh Tao are moving towards higher end holiday makers which is making Koh Tao a little expensive for those on a backpacking budget, so that's why we set up Koh Tao Backpackers to offer cheaper hostel style accommodation for both divers and non divers.
Located in Sairee at the Silver Sands Resort, behind Davy Jones Locker Diving opposite the Flying Trapeze. Central Sairee is the place to be based no matter what you are looking for whilst you're on Koh Tao, be it beaches and relaxing, bars and nightlife or of course what Koh Tao is most famous for scuba diving. Koh Tao Backpackers is close to everything you'll need whilst here on Koh Tao and although we're centrally based our location is quiet at night as the pool bar closes by midnight and we're far enough away from the beach bars so the noise which effects many of the resorts in Sairee isn't a problem.
As we are based at Silver Sands Resort and are associated with Davy Jones Locker (DJL) Diving not only can we offer great deals on diving (ask at reception when you arrive for more details) we also have full access to the resort's swimming pool and bar restaurant. Check out time is 10am and check in time is 10:30am, however if we do have beds available before 10:30am we're happy for you to check in early. If not you can drop off your bags with our reception staff and use the showers and then head off and get some breakfast whilst you are waiting for your bed to become free.
Our Terms and Conditions are pretty much the standard Hostelworld terms and conditions, if you cancel within 24hrs of when you are booked in to come and stay we will charge you for 1 night's accommodation. We do also reserve to right to ask you to leave the hostel if you are being rude or inconsiderate to either staff or other hostel guests
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
It was clean, you were given a fresh sheet and pillow case when you checked in. However, we didn't enjoy our three nights stay there. Our room was next to the bathroom where the lights neer went out. So our room wasn't dark. The other guests where really noisy, and the noise from the club continued until really late and was LOUD. The pool you can't ever actually use because is full of divers practising, and none of the sunbeds are actually in the sun. But it was a safe place and clean - decent but not enjoyable.
