We where there in November 2009, for few nights with our friends. We moved there from Porn Bungalows because of the lack of beach in the morning (surge). The wooden bungalows for about 500 THB with no hot water and no AC was great. The ocean breeze was more than enough for us and no hot water wasn't a problem. The restaurant at the place was really good. Thai standard of course. You order eggs with toasts and you get the eggs and 20 minutes later the toast :) I really enjoyed my stay there back there.
This year I was on Koh Chang for more than 10 days, so I rented a motorbike to drive there - see what's changed. And I was really impressed. They added many more bungalows made from concrete, with AC and hot water. The place still doesn't have a Pool, but the beach is at it was back then really nice.
The Lonely Beach itself is really nice and not overcrowded, not only for backpackers. If you have a bit more money you should stay at Gajapuri or something on Kai Bae (more quiet), but Lonely Beach is full of young and friendly people.More
