Currently staying here. Have found no faults with the place. It's about 10 minutes walk from the Chaweng Beach areas. This means that it's a small journey into town, but you're far enough not to hear what's going on if you don't go out. The hotel is near the gorgeous Chaweng lake. Nice thing to see everytime you leave. There... More

When my sister and me were arriving, I recognized that I forgot my handbag on the bus. Before we even checked in, the staff tried directly to help me with finding my handbag. First of all, we tried to find out on what bus company we went on. So, the staff was doing a lot of phone calls for me.... More

I booked to stay at Nids based on the reviews I read on TripAdvisor. I've stayed in many many hotels in Thailand & really fail to see why others make glowing recommendations of this place - it was a nightmare. Yes, the pool is great-it's new, but the grounds, the rooms, the smell, the road leading up to it-it's all... More

In responding to this review I feel we are responding to the type of person who would never be happy wherever they were. I honestly wonder why this type of person travels at all - they should stay at home where they can only be critical of themselves. Our 'guest', who did not actually stay, indicates she has travelled widely... More

Me and my friend stayed here in January, we moved from a £5 a night hotel which was disgusting to here for just £1 more and it was so much nicer ! We shared a little bungalow down the end of the path which had 2 single beds with a bedside table in the middle, a table at the end... More

We booked a private standard room. It was fine and clean enough but the service was incredibly bad. No one was in the office ever. Anytime we needed something, including upon our arrival, we had to go hunting for someone who worked there which could take 15 mins.They wouldn't serve us breakfast and told us to just go down the...

I stayed here with a friend because we were looking for a budget place to stay for a couple of nights on Koh Samui island in January 2014. We ideally wanted a pool so this seemed like a good choice. It was nice here - a little bit far out from the general Koh Samui ' scene' - a good... More

Me and two other friends stayed in a cottage. Nid and her family are kind and caring. There are animals everywhere and it's a beautiful place which is looked after impeccably. The room was tidy and reasonably spacious. Being 19 year old back packers we were especially impressed with the power of the wifi there - best on the island.... More

You want to have your stuff stolen! The "room service" went into our room while we were gone and stole 50$ in cash, my credit card and my passport. Unfortunatly, I discovered that only when I got to Bangkok so not much to be done in that matter... I really thing it's an OK guesthouse and it's definitely not worth... More

This guest, booked under another, made no report of any alleged loss to Nid’s Bungalows before checking-out. Two (2) days later, having travelled from Koh Samui to Bangkok, he reported the alleged loss to the Tourist Police, and decides to lay a false accusation of theft against our staff. If any alleged theft in fact occurred at Nid’s Bungalows, it... More

We booked this on a whim hoping to get decent cheap accommodation on Koh Samui. We were all very impressed with this hostel. Very friendly staff who were helpful with the rooms and finding our way around. The hostel appears to double as an animal sanctuary as well as a hostel which is fine as they all keep themselves to...

Nid's was a really friendly place with a homely feel. The Bungalows were very smart and clean and there was a really nice pool to use as well. It was nice to be away from the loud strip, but the walk along the dark dirt track at night was somewhat irritating, though I can't complain for the price we paid,... More
