Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights and that was long ebough, we ate here on one occasion and the food was good despite both of us not getting what we ordered. The rooms are not cleaned regularly and are basic with no door on the toilet room or toilet paper provided. Cosy bingalows is ideal if yoy literally just need a place to crash after partying, apart from that I would not want to stay here.

I stayed here for 4 nights in total, luckily we had a great room positioned right opposite the bar. The room was perfect for our budget stay, and really modern inside! Compared to what we were used to stopping in (haha). All the staff were lovely, food was good, there is also wi-fi avaible which was useful and they had films on on an evening. The bar and restaurant are in a great place, right on the beach. The location of Cosy Bungalows is perfect too as its only a 10minute taxi ride to the Jungle parties and the Full Moon party. Would 100% recommned this to anyone going to Koh Phangan!

Just like another couple i have been conned into this accommodation by a travel agency (Hansa Happy Ltd. in Bangkok - stay away from them!). The place is horrible, rooms are big (with aircon) but dirty. Bathrooms are also big but the heat and smell coming from it is hard to bear, I am not even sure people should be allowed to have shower in this waters! The beach is terrible, all rocks in front of it so you actually have to go somewhere else if you want to lay on the beach. In front there is one bar blazing music throughout a day and late at night. People tend to run away from there because it is simply too loud and you cannot even enjoy laying on one of the wooden beds. for the price they charge you can deffinately find something better as I have been around and looked at resorts near by. Stay away crom Cosy as they are far from cosy! That's my advice!

We book through the 168 travel agency in Bangkok! When we first booked it we thought we got scammed. We spent our first week in outside of Krabi. The place we stayed was amazing so we thought that we would be fine! Then we arrived to Cosy Bungalow! We had already paid for our ahead of time, and when we got there at eight o'clock at night they wanted 2000 baht or a passport for deposit. They took us to our bungalow which was right next to the bar. They had the music blaring and there was no way we could sleep. The lady at the front desk through a minor fit when we asked to change rooms but did move us. We could still hear the music though! There is no black just a bunch of rocks. The bedding was not very clean the water in the show smells horrible. These bungalow are anything but cozy! You have to pay for the wifi and only one person can use it at a time! Stay away!

Staffs are friendly and helpfull. Restaurant is very nice by the beach and very good food. Good place to stay!!!! Love it Bungalows is clean but no bathroom door but it is ok with me as long as it clean. Location is not far from party and night market. And they also had a motorbike to rent which is more easier to go around the island. Motorbike guy is friendly recommend us many places to visit

The accomodation does the job and is what you'd expect. The food from the beach bar was really good, and the beers were very reasonable and it made a great place to chill out and recover after the night before

Cosy Bungalows is a decent place to stay while partying on Koh Phangan. The bungalows themselves are nothing special at all. There are no bathroom doors (well we didn't have one), and the beds were somewhat uncomfortable. This is to be expected while backpacking though, not a huge deal, and after a few drinks people tend to forget about this stuff. My only gripe is that we did find quite a big cockroach in our bathroom, and since there was no door, it could have easily crawled onto our beds. I hated this, but then again I really hate insects, so this might not bother people as much as it did me.

The rest of the resort was very nice. The lounging area is great, with hammocks and beds scattered around, resulting in a really chilled out atmosphere. They play movies, have great views right on the beach, and the food is very good. The family that runs the place was awesome, and very friendly. I should emphasize that if you are just looking for a base away from the hustle of Haad Rin, but still want to party, then I would recommend this place.

In addition, you are bound to meet a lot of other backpackers staying here due to the layout, which is a huge plus in my opinion.

Room Tip: Try and get one with a bathroom door!
