We booked a private standard room. It was fine and clean enough but the service was incredibly bad. No one was in the office ever. Anytime we needed something, including upon our arrival, we had to go hunting for someone who worked there which could take 15 mins.They wouldn't serve us breakfast and told us to just go down the...

I stayed here with a friend because we were looking for a budget place to stay for a couple of nights on Koh Samui island in January 2014. We ideally wanted a pool so this seemed like a good choice. It was nice here - a little bit far out from the general Koh Samui ' scene' - a good... More

Me and two other friends stayed in a cottage. Nid and her family are kind and caring. There are animals everywhere and it's a beautiful place which is looked after impeccably. The room was tidy and reasonably spacious. Being 19 year old back packers we were especially impressed with the power of the wifi there - best on the island.... More

You want to have your stuff stolen! The "room service" went into our room while we were gone and stole 50$ in cash, my credit card and my passport. Unfortunatly, I discovered that only when I got to Bangkok so not much to be done in that matter... I really thing it's an OK guesthouse and it's definitely not worth... More

This guest, booked under another, made no report of any alleged loss to Nid’s Bungalows before checking-out. Two (2) days later, having travelled from Koh Samui to Bangkok, he reported the alleged loss to the Tourist Police, and decides to lay a false accusation of theft against our staff. If any alleged theft in fact occurred at Nid’s Bungalows, it... More

We booked this on a whim hoping to get decent cheap accommodation on Koh Samui. We were all very impressed with this hostel. Very friendly staff who were helpful with the rooms and finding our way around. The hostel appears to double as an animal sanctuary as well as a hostel which is fine as they all keep themselves to...

Nid's was a really friendly place with a homely feel. The Bungalows were very smart and clean and there was a really nice pool to use as well. It was nice to be away from the loud strip, but the walk along the dark dirt track at night was somewhat irritating, though I can't complain for the price we paid,... More

Nids was a decent place to stay on Koh Samui. Away from the crazy late-night parties, but also a bit of a distance from the beach, which was bit inconvenient. It's a family-run place and the staff were very friendly. Even though there were other guests staying at Nids, it was so quiet you felt as if you had it... More

I stayed in Nid's Bungalows on my first night on Koh Samui. I travelled alone so wanted to check into a shared bedroom but to my surprise, I was the only person there!

Staff were incredibly attentive, bungalows were clean and surrounded by beautiful gardens, the pool was lovely. Overall nids bungalows has a lovely relaxing atmosphere and has been the best hostel we've had throughout our trip so far. Value for money is amazing! I'd recommend it to anyone.

I chose this property simply because it was the cheapest hostel I found with a pool! The bungalows are around a 15 minute walk to the beach, a walk shouldn't really be done at night as there are no street lights around the area!
