Description provided by property
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 common rooms or head out to get some breakfast whilst you are waiting for your bed to become free.
We now have completed the hostel extensions and so now also have 4 bed AC dormitories as well as 8 bed AC dormitories as well as an indoor common room and roof top chill out area.
