“Budget getaway on Koh Samui”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

Nids was a decent place to stay on Koh Samui. Away from the crazy late-night parties, but also a bit of a distance from the beach, which was bit inconvenient. It's a family-run place and the staff were very friendly. Even though there were other guests staying at Nids, it was so quiet you felt as if you had it to yourself. The rooms are decent for the price. We also rented a motor bike from the family for a good price.

I stayed in Nid's Bungalows on my first night on Koh Samui. I travelled alone so wanted to check into a shared bedroom but to my surprise, I was the only person there! Nid's Bungalows is about a 10 minute walk to the beach, which I disliked but apart from that it was absolutely beautiful. The highlight is the pool (although salt water), which is as beautiful in real life, as it is on the photos. The room was nice, every bed had its own fan. There is free wifi, which was ok & the bathrooms were really nice & clean. The free breakfast was amazing! I loved the scrambled eggs. Staff were very friendly and attentive. I checked out after the first night because I wanted to meet more people but can imagine that in high season, it's probably the best value for money.

Staff were incredibly attentive, bungalows were clean and surrounded by beautiful gardens, the pool was lovely. Overall nids bungalows has a lovely relaxing atmosphere and has been the best hostel we've had throughout our trip so far. Value for money is amazing! I'd recommend it to anyone.

I chose this property simply because it was the cheapest hostel I found with a pool! The bungalows are around a 15 minute walk to the beach, a walk shouldn't really be done at night as there are no street lights around the area! When I arrived I was given water and greeted with a warm Thai welcome which was nice! The WiFi worked for the first day but after that I had problems...2 days without good WiFi was kind of an issue but the staff did try so I can't really blame them! Overall great pool and great prices oh and great food aswell with really good prices but you would really need to hire a bike or take taxi's home especially after a night drinking buckets! P.S. I was given a fresh towel everyday, the resort itself is sooooo super clean!

had a really good stay here in a dorm. customer service was ok, pool was great, staff who clean rooms etc really pleasant and do a great job. close enough to the bars and the main street, walking street(food and clothing outdoor market. would recommend, but remember to barter before you pay the price

Room Tip: if on your own pick the dorm as will meet some real nice people who are travelling alone too

If it had not been the distance this place was from the beach I would have given it a perfect 5. The rooms are large and cleaned every day. The pool is gorgeous and the staff was friendly. I didn't eat much at the restaurant but the one breakfast I had was basic but good. It is at least a 10 minute walk to the beach. It is also located next to a small lake which I think explained why there were so many mosquitoes. I would stay here again if I was just wanting to lounge by the pool and not get out and do much. If you are wanting to explore the beach and all the shops/stores you may want to find something closer. The staff was helpful and even booked my taxi and ferry to the next island.

Room Tip: I was there for a week and I don't think anyone was staying in the dorms the entire time. You ma...

Me and my friends stayed in a triple room. It was very spacious, clean and cool. We had a bungalow to ourselves and a beautiful view of Nid's garden from our balcony. The included breakfast was wonderful and our sheets and rooms were cleaned every day. Although the bungalows are about a 10 minute walk from the most tourist filled area, I found it quite a welcome break. Its a quiet and relaxing place to come back to and a nice walk into town.

Room Tip: Triple room was great, and cost us about £10 each with breakfast
