About Koh Tao
Koh Tao is an island on the east coast of Southern Thailand. Nowadays, Koh Tao hostels are popular with backpackers, as the island is especially renowned amongst divers for its abundant underwater life and spectacular views.
Koh Tao hostels (as in most of Thailand) are very inexpensive with good amenities, and are therefore well-suited for budget travelers.
When planning your trip to a Koh Tao hostel, bear in mind that the only way to reach the island is by boat. You can easily get a boat from the mainland, either from the Chumphon county or from Bangkok, or from one of the nearby islands (Koh Phangan or Koh Samui). Staying in Koh Tao is well-worth the boat fare.
As mentioned before, the main attraction in Koh Tao is diving. There are many diving operators available. Thailand might be one of the cheapest places to do the PADI course, (one of the most well-known certificates for open water diving). When you arrive at the pier, you can't miss the diving companies and their employees, who are more than willing to take you aboard.
The easiest and most rewarding way to travel on the island is bike or scooter, because Koh Tao hostels are close to everything as the island relatively small and the traffic tends to be light. Remember to try the Thai dishes here, they are really inexpensive and very good value. There are also a few bars on the beach if you feel thirsty after a long day of diving.
Remember the usual safety precautions while staying at a Koh Tao hostel: the sun in these parts of the world can be scorching, so sunscreen is a must, and keep your belongings safe. Drunk driving is a bit of a problem on Koh Tao, so keep that in mind as well.

"Decent - The location was fabulous, right on a beautiful section of the beach, close enough to all the lively bars, but quiet enough to get some rest.
