I stayed in one of the bamboo cabins in early October. It's cheap (300 Baht a night) but man, do not do this. The room was dirty and grimy, there was mold growing on the wall. The whole place smelled like urine (and from the way it sounded the toilets and sinks empty directly under the hut, so no surprise on why it smelled so bad). The mosquito net had some gross stains on it. Really, just avoid this place. The door lock was not comforting and it felt really unsafe and vulnerable. It was nice to wake up to the sound of the ocean but not worth how gross the room was.
I also needed to get some work done and needed the wifi and it only worked intermittently, and only at the restaurant. The woman I booked the room with seemed downright exasperated that I was trying to do business with her, which I found strange and rude. Other than that the staff was helpful. The bar next door (Why Not Bar) has a great band that plays at night until about 12am, mostly alt-rock covers. I liked that, and being close to the beach, but seriously, for 100 more baht you can stay somewhere SO MUCH NICER.
