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...

Thank you very much for your review Suneer, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay.

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. And, when it comes to noise, we would invite you to book one of the expensive hotels in the nightclub area on...

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...

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...

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.

Thank you for your valuable feedback Ashley and for giving us the opportunity to respond.

This was a very odd hostel, and in a tricky location, but the hostel itself was perfectly fine.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nid's Bungalows is family-owned and managed, offering cool, private and tasteful accommodation in the Thai-style, located centrally on the shore of Chaweng Lake in the Chaweng Beach tourist area, only 10 minutes from Samui airport and 5 minutes from Chaweng Beach. To serve the international traveller, Nid's Bungalows offers a range of accommodation options, from new and superior levels of accommodation to a new and spacious 8-bunk Dorm for the solo traveller or value-conscious group. Nid has made the lush gardens around the bungalows and swimming pool a feature of the Resort. The Resort offers a large lap pool and sun deck, bar and games area, free WiFi and laundry facilities.
