We arrived in the middle of the night. Walked down a few sketchy alleys and eventually came to the entrance, wasn't too hard to find. We was met by an army of dogs and cats and a Thai lady who I think we had woken up. She was very helpful. The room itself was very basic, 2 beds and a...

I fail to see how anybody can give this place a bad review. Especially considering the cost. Yes it's a 5-10 minute walk to town, but it's a nice walk along the side of the lake. The cats and dogs are all friendly (although you may get an early morning wake up). The pool area is good. Trips and taxis...

Thanks so much for your comments Will. Accommodation providers too often receive overly complimentary or critical reviews which are not much help to anyone. Each individual place of accommodation will always have it's pros and cons, but it is particularly pleasing to receive a balanced and informative review like yours for our future guests. Thanks again, it was a pleasure...

We thank Quentin for his review and we are sorry for his disappointment. There is little we can do about the ignorant comments he has made, especially about the animals, other than highlight his ignorance to future guests. First of all, our location. Nid's Bungalows is on the shore of Chaweng Lake, in the middle of Chaweng Beach, 2 blocks...

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.
