We stayed here for 4 very nights and we were pleased with the hotel. The room was ok, it was clean and the air conditioning worked well. The pool area was very nice with plenty of sun loungers. The staff were friendly. It is about a 10 minute walk to the beach, but has a nice location by the lake... More

We were in Koh Samui in mid-February 2016 and had a decent stay at the Nid's Bungalows. We were allowed an early check-in because our flight came in early but then again we were checking out quite early too. Needed to take a cab to get to the place because, apparently the bus that's available doesn't go the entire way... More

Thank you very much for your review Suneer, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay. However, for the benefit of our future guests, we would like to avoid any possible confusion with your reference to… “the main market.” Nid’s Bungalows is centrally located in the Chaweng Beach area, close to the main market for the area, that is,...

We stayed for two nights, it's slightly far out from the centre but they have scooters so it's not so bad, plus the sunset is amazing. The pools nice to chill and the family who run it are all really nice. The rooms are big and although they have no aircon each bed had there own fan. They have so... More

Thanks so much for your review Sara - we are very pleased you had a great time and plan to return. But, for the benefit of future guests, we need to make a couple of corrections.

The hotel was very nice and good value for money. The fan bedrooms were simple but clean and included a tv. The owner was lovely and very helpful, we were able to rent scooters for 200 baht which was the common price of the island. The only problem was that we were woken up every morning at 5am by some...

Thanks so much for your review Elizabeth, it is much appeciated. However we wish to correct your reference to "fan bedrooms" - Nid's Bungalows does not have any "fan bedrooms", all our rooms, including the Dorm, are air-conditioned.

It really is a lovely place with all the amenities you would need. Well priced and the rooms are quite big. Lovely pool area and it also has a restaurant and bar so you don't need to go into town if you don't want to. Stray animals are taken in and fed - however, some of them do seem like... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights after the full moon party on Koh Phangan.

Thanks so much Niamh for the generous comments about your stay at Nid's Bungalows. As you have found, Nid's Bungalows is in a central and convenient location for partygoers on Samui or Koh PhaNgan, close to all the Chaweng nightlife, but far enough away to get some peace and quiet during the day for recovery. It was indeed a pleasure... More

Don't let the fact that it is family owned fool you. We had issues from the second we stepped foot here. The owner was incredibly rude and made us feel very uncomfortable. The employee who took our bags to our room was drunk and when we were to rent motorbikes we found that they drain the gas and re sell... More

This was a very odd hostel, and in a tricky location, but the hostel itself was perfectly fine. My only complaint is that each locker in the dorm could be unlocked with a single key, which my friend and I had found out when I only got a key and jokingly wondered if the reason we both didn't was because...

We hope this woman takes a good look around Samui – at USD $10/night, she will then realise she has gotten much more than she paid for at Nid’s Bungalows.

We recently stayed at Nid's for a couple of nights. We agree with most reviews that the staff is exceptionally helpful. Pool was superb too! The location was a little too remote for our liking, near lots of dirty water and apparently what is the Drug Capital of Samui. Stay away from the strip of bars north of the Avenue... More
