The beds leave something yo be disired but its not the worst ive had in Thailand. Ask to see the bungalows first I had ny choice of 3 rooms all with various firmness of mattress. Toilets are self flush which can be a pain but for the price you have to have some drawbacks some place. All in all I... More

My boyfriend and I ended up at Save Bungalows for one night because the accommodation our dive school pre arranged for us was terrible and we requested they try to find us somewhere cleaner. Admittedly it was better and felt a lot more secure, but we still only stayed for one night even though we paid for two. The bed... More

Rock hard beds, rank bedding, filthy walls, no mosquito net, dirty floor, a ceiling that leaks on your bed when it rains, ants everywhere (more than your average amount in asia), window that doesn't close properly, and a crap location... Truly awful! Would say stay anywhere but here...

Save bungalows is located about as close to the arrival pier I landed at as anyone could expect, literally a stones throw wh in is great when wheeling or carrying bags. The guy at the reception/shop was efficient and professional enough if not that friendly, I checked in early without any issues, and the bungalow itself was very nice to... More

The bungalows are wery simple. Without any wardrobe, bathroom is not nice, and they have only realy cold water. For one or 2 night is ok. Is very close to The port, to The beach and The town. Wifi was good in The bungalow. our belongings were safe there.

The bungalows are okay, clean but pretty run down. The neighbourhood feels like some kind of slum (garbage behind the bungalows, etc.) and you can not get in any interaction with the stuff because nobody speaks englisch (not so good when you want to get tourists at your place..). The bungalows are near the pier, so you dont have to... More

If you are a backpacker with a few friends who need a place to crash for cheap, it may be worthwhile but definitely not recommended for couples, especially if you need the a/c in this hot weather. The place was small with very few outlets, the television was old with poor reception, the hot water was via a gas unit... More

Have been staying here for one month, and I like the mattress and balcony here! I think it's a good choice for low budget backpackers!! And it's near to the pier, don't need to walk for long or take taxi to get here when you arrive Koh Tao! Highly recommend it!
