I stayed in a standard room for 5wks. The room was cleaned twice a week which was sufficient. The price for the room for the 5wks was the cheapest I could find on the Soi. The staff who tended to the grounds greeted me every morning with a smile & a “sawdaee ka”. Anything I requested from reception would immediately be looked after. I asked for a free standing fan as the air con was giving me a sore throat. I went out for the day & when I came back there was a brand new fan in my room. I actually broke said fan & again that day it was replaced for me. I offered to pay for the fan on check out as I had broken it & it was a reasonable sum. The lady Ta at reception was so lovely to me, she also organised my trip to Phi Phi. The wait for my laundry that I left in was a few days so I didn’t leave it in there again. There are lots of places on the Soi that do same day laundry. The lil doggo ‘Tanwa’ in the pic became my best pal for the 5wks. I went from being a non dog lover to completely falling in love with her. She waited at the top of the lane every night to walk me home. The food in the restaurant was lovely, I did get food poising one of the days from eating there but sure it’s Thailand & that can happen anywhere! I would definitely be back to stay here again.

I trained at Titans for 6 weeks and initially booked to stay at Little Hill Resort which was a big mistake, that place is not worth a brass razzoo. I changed to Forest Bungalow and absolutely loved it. The hospitality from Mama and her staff was second to none.The restaurant food is awesome as is the coffee and health snacks. I had a deluxe bungalow with the living jungle in the bathroom which really was a highlight and creates such a beautiful little tropical paradise of your own.Great location only 5 minute walk to Soi Ti-ed and about 8 minute walk to Titans.Nice pool also at Forest Bungalow. Thanks Mama and staff.

Been to Chalong to train 2 years now and always stayed at Forrest bungalows next to the Tea House accomodation. Upon contacting her for a accomodation over Facebook I was told I was staying at Family bungalows who from last experience are very helpful and lovely genuine people. As I arrived I found out I was not staying at the Family bungalows at all.... this lady who could hardly speak English lead me to my room. Every night she would creep around looking through my blinds and when I had the light on she would come knocking on the door... due to a medical condition that is not in my control I constantly needed to go to the clinics and hospitals to seek help from the doctors. Until I was fit to fly home. When I was ill she wouldn't understand and call an ambulance which was totally unnecessary. I suggest no one to consider staying with her, she was arrogant didn't understand a thing and all she wanted was money for everything. So I left finally. She was a genuine nut case. Glad to be gone

My experience staying here was all very nice until the end. The staff were very nice and friendly and greet you with a smile. Mama is super friendly and very hospitable. The rooms were kept simply and clean. I was concerned about the concrete flooring but it was surprising clean to walk on. I loved the bathroom's plant feature, it made you feel like you were showering outdoors. There were gecko's and a cockroach but these are minor and expected of its jungly surroundings. I would definitely stay here again though! I asked to hire a motorbike but you won't be able to get one if you don't have a valid license so the outsourced somewhere else for you who would allow it. I got my motorbike across the road. They kept my passport for security and I highly regret doing that. When I returned my motorbike the lady who held my passport was at a wedding ceremony and didn't pick up her phone. It took me almost an hour to get my passport as we even had to go into her house and rummage for it. Mind you, I had a plane to catch so I was super stressed. I luckily made in time. Very unprofessional and highly unacceptable. Mama's kitchen had very cheap and healthy food. I ate here most of the time because food on my main fitness strip was a slightly more expensive. So I just ate here most of the time.

I'm here for 1 month. Coming to the end of my training 'holiday' now. Forest Bungalow is a perfect place to stay if you have training in mind. Rooms cleaned twice per week, Mama has been super helpful with anything I've needed. I stayed in Bungalow F7. I also spent 4 nights in the luxury apartment aswell, bigger room, small kitchen and cable TV. The bungalow has served its purpose perfectly, a/c is 100% etc. Forest Bungalow is tucked away of a side street on the main strip so it's very quiet if you want to get away from the action on the strip. Cannot fault this place and I will be returning when I come back to train. Thank you Mama!

I stayed at a bungalow F9 near local people house. It was noisy in the evening, because children playing football behind a bungalow. Other time was really quiet. A bungalow was really nice, cable TV, fridge, air con, hot shower, free wifi too. I asked for a kettle and DVD player, she gave me with 200 baht and 500 baht deposit. A food at their restaurant is the best. I were full with only 45 thb for Thai food dish with rice. Mama really took great care of me, all staffs were really nice and friendly. They don't understand english that well (except Mama, some guys and girls at restaurant), but I didn't have any problems communicate with them.

My and my partner had the best month staying here. Down a little side-street in Chalong you will find Forest Bungalows and Mama's Restaurant, a perfect location to stay during your time training in Chalong. Services include restaurant, motorcycle rental, airport transfers, massage, pool, laundry, free wifi, computer room, library and a tour agency. Bungalow included wifi, fridge, cable TV, safe-box, hot shower, clothes airer and air con. We were training at Tiger Muay Thai, a 5-10min walk from the bungalow, but other gyms such as Unit-27 are much closer. We rented a motorcycle for the month, which cost around 3000 baht (£60), and we had a few issues with the bikes, but they happily swapped them for us free of charge. There are several staff on hand all day, and service was some of the best we experienced in Thailand. The restaurant was cheap, healthy and great value for money. They have hundreds of healthy options, protein shakes, protein dishes and also standard Western Meals such as Pizza, Burgers, etc... although you tend to pay more for these. The average Western meal would cost around 100-150baht (£2-3), whereas Thai dishes cost around 50baht (£1). The staff also let us bring our own food in occasionally, as we were regular customers. Vegetarian alternatives can be ordered, you just have to ask. We rented the bungalow for 12000 baht (£300) for the month, which was a bargain, especially for two people. Room is cleaned twice per week, you can arrange this with your personal cleaner. Also leave them a tip when you leave, you will only have one cleaner for your room and they will do a great job in hope that you will tip. Even the smallest amount is a lot for them. We saw several lizards/geckos and one snake while staying here. Definitely added to the 'Forest' vibe. When I return I will be staying here again for sure!

Value for money. Forest bungalow is a non expensive hotel in which what you pay is what you get. Rooms are big very spacious. Good air condition,cable tv. Something didn't like is that when you take your key all the outlets are turned off. So yo can't live you camera or cell phone charging. Another thing didn't like is that you have to ask for house keeping. If not your room is not cleaned and towels are not changed. Service is spectacular and is near to gyms and fighting stadiums. I will come back in training mode. This visit was just recognition of the area.
