This was a Big dissapointment... No service at all, the room was nothing but a shack with a bed and you only had a very poor padlock to lock the door. There wasn't even a chair in the bungalow.. Positive Thing is That they have a safetybox you Can use free of charge og you have your own padlock, and the location is very very good..

Security is only a little padlock on the door and the door didn't even close completely. Cleanliness is how clean you keep the room because he staff do not clean at all and you have to buy your own toilet paper. It's cheap for the full moon and very close to the main beach but the location and the hammock were pretty much the on,y things we liked. The wifi is free but barely ever works.


Room wasnt overly clean, few wierd stains on the walls and ants got in easily. But overall good. Location was perfect for me, close enough to night life 5 min walk, but far enough to get a good nights sleep. You get what you pay for, this place is great if you want a private room and your on a budget.


Thank you for a pleasant stay!


Really lovely woman on reception. Very helpful with everything. Super clean room. Awesome location 10 mins walk from full moon beach but quiet enough to sleep without any noise. Definitely recommend staying here.

First and foremost the staff at Charung are what made our stay most pleasent. They were helpful with suggestions on what places to check out on the island and helped with travel arrangements. Inc calling other hotels, ferries, etc.. to confirm bookings. The wifi was in and out at times. No safe in any of the units. Would have been nice to have that option. More closet/storage space would have been ideal. Would have liked a mini fridge to keep things cool.

Fab location, right on Sunset Beach and really close to pier for Koh Samui.


Awesome place to stay near the full moon beach. Just off the main road so it's not too loud, very basic bungalows but as a traveling couple we found it delightful. Private, with your own hammock, and not too pricey! Loved it, would stay again


Very good location near to the south center of Koh Phangan. I don't recommend renting motorbikes, or if so be very careful and do not have any accidents (not even a scratch) as the rent is very cheap but the business are the repairs of the moto itself.
