This was a fairly average budget option. For 400B per night, you won't find anywhere cheaper in the high season in Samui and this is nicely located next to the popular (and probably the nicest beach on the island) Hat Chaweng. The room was okay, mostly wooden, quite clean but extremely hot almost 24/7 (exclusive of the coldest hours around 3-7am). The bathroom was shared and wasn't even hot water. No worries, the water was always lukewarm and hot showers aren't a necessity here, especially when you've come out of your boiling hot fan room. The bathrooms were, at best, averagely clean. I think they were cleaned every two days. The room itself, however, could be requested to be cleaned daily which was surprising.
Samui is perhaps the most built up Thai island (unless you count Phuket). It is certainly not the most picturesque but it still has a good amount going for it. Chaweng Beach is pure white and the sea is wonderfully clear. In fact, the whiteness of the sand and clarity of the sea is probably unmatched on any other beach I have visited. That said, the area is busy, the main tourist hotspot on the island, and it lacks the charm of other beaches on Phangan, Phi Phi, Krabi province. An advantage of Saver Guesthouse is that it is located at the southern end of the beach, which is the quietest and prettiest part. You can sea some of the sunset from the other end of the island from here.
For the money, if you're travelling on a budget, this is certainly worthwhile. If you have enough money, however, you're likely to find something nicer elsewhere.
