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

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

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
