“Good hostel for the full moon stay”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Stayed here for 5 nights during the July 2012 full moon, booked in advance due to the popular demand, paid £11 a night which is pricey for Thailand however paid before we went so didn't feel expensive.
A bit of a walk from the beach, some closer hotels however still a good location to shops/bars and food.
Clean and air conditioning fab!!
Would not stay as long if went again but can only book 5 nights at most places over the full moon time

Room Tip: We had one downtairs and one upstairs bungalow - downstairs more secure as a proper door, upstairs h...

Reviewed 24 May 2013

We stayed in a standard double room and standard is an overstatement. Our room consisted of nothing more than a double bed and a fan (not adequate to keep the room cool) and we suffered 5 nights in this (5 night minimum stay over full moon period) We tried to upgrade to air con but there was no availability. Only lock on room was small padlock so security was a worry. Bathroom is outside and shared with 6 other bungalows often resulting in a long wait. Only saving grace of charung is its location and friendly staff. Will not be returning.
At £7 a night this is very very cheap, I'd like to say you get what you pay for, but in all honesty I don't even think you get that. Charung is far too basic.
