Situated off the main road but within walking distance to the beach. We booked the cottage for 4 nights, which was OK for the price. But that is all that you get, there is no cleaning or changing of towels. The cottage has a mosquito net over the bed and that was a big relief. The staff were very polite.

I booked the budget room which was smelly and small. We then went with the wooden cottage which had a TON of mosquitos and bugs (so many bugs seriously). In their defence they do provide you with a mosquito killing spray in all rooms. They only provided soap for us to use no shampoo. The hot shower was awesome. Dont... More

We have stayed at the Cottage for 6 night during the LIMA. The location is good - just 5 minutes walk to the beautiful part of the beach, near many restaurants. The Indian place next door serves very good rotis for breakfast. The rooms were ok, big, and clean. But there's no cleaning service, so after 6 night the room... More

It's in a good location near the beach and away from the main street so it's nice and quiet there. The biggest dorm has no door and is right next to the reception. Did not like the dorms nor the toilets but loved the surroundings. The lockers are very old and you can even open them without the key. Big... More

We stayed here for two nights till they kicked us out the worst possible way ever. Our first choice was Soluna but it was already full, and we found THE COTTAGE just near with a Trip Advisor sticker on the door so thought it was good. Paid for one night, we woke up with bug bites on our arms and... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with a group of friends, the place was nice, very good value for the price - ideal for backpackers. It's in a good location, close to the beach and lots of restaurants.

Stayed in standard room nr.1. Quite clean and comfortable. Hot shower worked well. Wifi was a bit slow, but ok. Location pretty good as it's a short walk to what we thought was the nicest part of Chennang beach. Close to taxi station too. I guess it's not the best place you can get for approx. that price, but certainly... More

1 night. I got bug-bitten up bad, like other reviewers. I even closed the screenless windows upon arriving in spite of the room's choking bug spray smell. At other reviewers suggestions I searched the gnarly mattresses for bugs throughly beforehand and found nothing. I was a fool for coming here. I should have listened to the other reviewers.
