We spent good times in this hostel, the best place I've ever stayed in. Many animals through the place make the stay unforgettable, the owner allan greets us very well, was very helpful. The location is close to the beach and restaurants, shopping and a very busy shopping avenue. I'll come back for sure.

Nice place to stay and Alan was very welcoming during our 2 day stay which we had non stop rain for! Its a little walk 10 mins to the main street and 15 to the beach. The beds were very comfortable and if you love animals then you are in your element here. The only bad thing with so many...

Had a nice bungalow for 3 of us and all the staff really friendly with lots of cats and dogs. :) Food was delicious, I had fried rice with chicken. The best one I've had so far. Would defiantly come back here again.

Really enjoyed our stay at Nids Bungalows. Location was great, a little walk off the road but 15 minutes to the beach. Allan was very helpful and friendly. Very secure place with a double lock door and a safe in the room. Really comfortable bed with actual duvet and clean sheets! The room itself was spotless and the cleaning staff...

Was nice having a pool if not always up to the beach. Personally love that there's an abundance of pets/animals about but have to say NO in terms of the parrot. It sometimes screeches from 6am I like the charm of the place and don't want to criticise but can't see what the parrot adds to the accommodation. Otherwise nice...

Thanks for your kind review Eleanor, and for choosing to stay with us. Occasionally we do get a complaint about 'Richie' the parrot, and we have conveyed your sentiments to him. Unfortunately we are unable to publish his reply to you here! Best wishes and we hope we see you again, Nid, Alan & Staff

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...

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...

The hotel was very nice and good value for money. The fan bedrooms were simple but clean and included a tv.
