The bungalows are basic, but clean & the beds are comfy. You get your private hammock and the bungalows are just across the street from Hinkong beach (great sunsets, beach itself is ok). There are several restaurants, a supermarket and a tourist information (they also offer motorcycle rentals) and it is only a 10 minute ride to Thong Sala. You can also easily drive to the beaches in the west and north, which are amazing! We were pretty much the only guests at the time (just after the Full Moon party in the low season). Take earplugs since there are many dogs around and sometimes they start fighting and barking when you want to sleep. AC worked great (we had to use our sleeping bag inlets since we the place only provides a thin sheet). Only downsights: the door was a little jammed & we had trouble opening it (but I guess that's an easy fix) & some new towels would have been great (we stayed 6 nights & used our own at the end; to be fair however: the owner wasn't around at the end & we didn't ask the guys running the place at that time). All in all great value for money!
