We stayed for two nights, it's slightly far out from the centre but they have scooters so it's not so bad, plus the sunset is amazing. The pools nice to chill and the family who run it are all really nice. The rooms are big and although they have no aircon each bed had there own fan. They have so...

Thanks so much for your review Sara - we are very pleased you had a great time and plan to return. But, for the benefit of future guests, we need to make a couple of corrections. Nid's Bungalows is on the shore of Chaweng Lake, 10 minutes' walk from the centre of Chaweng and Chaweng Beach, but far enough away...

The hotel was very nice and good value for money. The fan bedrooms were simple but clean and included a tv. The owner was lovely and very helpful, we were able to rent scooters for 200 baht which was the common price of the island. The only problem was that we were woken up every morning at 5am by some...

Thanks so much for your review Elizabeth, it is much appeciated. However we wish to correct your reference to "fan bedrooms" - Nid's Bungalows does not have any "fan bedrooms", all our rooms, including the Dorm, are air-conditioned. And, when it comes to noise, we would invite you to book one of the expensive hotels in the nightclub area on...

It really is a lovely place with all the amenities you would need. Well priced and the rooms are quite big. Lovely pool area and it also has a restaurant and bar so you don't need to go into town if you don't want to. Stray animals are taken in and fed - however, some of them do seem like...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights after the full moon party on Koh Phangan. We had read a couple of mixed reviews online about the owners and the hostel itself but decided to give it a try anyway. We definitely made the right decision, Nid and her husband Alan who own and run the Hostel are only...

Thanks so much Niamh for the generous comments about your stay at Nid's Bungalows. As you have found, Nid's Bungalows is in a central and convenient location for partygoers on Samui or Koh PhaNgan, close to all the Chaweng nightlife, but far enough away to get some peace and quiet during the day for recovery. It was indeed a pleasure...

Don't let the fact that it is family owned fool you. We had issues from the second we stepped foot here. The owner was incredibly rude and made us feel very uncomfortable. The employee who took our bags to our room was drunk and when we were to rent motorbikes we found that they drain the gas and re sell...

Thank you for your valuable feedback Ashley and for giving us the opportunity to respond. If you believe your experience at Nid’s Bungalows to be your worst in Thailand, then your further travels in Thailand, and SE Asia generally, will likely be a very unpleasant experience indeed. Displaying the worst characteristics of young and very immature teenage backpackers, arguing and...

This was a very odd hostel, and in a tricky location, but the hostel itself was perfectly fine. My only complaint is that each locker in the dorm could be unlocked with a single key, which my friend and I had found out when I only got a key and jokingly wondered if the reason we both didn't was because...

We hope this woman takes a good look around Samui – at USD $10/night, she will then realise she has gotten much more than she paid for at Nid’s Bungalows. She and her friend stayed here for a week in the Mixed Dorm and enjoyed a clean and very spacious room, serviced every day, with each bunk privately curtained off,...

We recently stayed at Nid's for a couple of nights. We agree with most reviews that the staff is exceptionally helpful. Pool was superb too! The location was a little too remote for our liking, near lots of dirty water and apparently what is the Drug Capital of Samui. Stay away from the strip of bars north of the Avenue...

I recently spent 8 days staying at Nid's Bungalows. I went with a girlfriend and we stayed in a twin room. The room was all you could want particularly considering the price.
