Stayed for five nights, the room was never cleaned and we had to ask for toilet paper and new towels. The rooms are empty except for beds, one small table and a fan, no hangers or nothing !! Also the bedroom was kinda nasty and not well cleaned, the drain for the shower (which had only cold water) was a hole to the ground! not recommend for two persons, those are the worst rooms, apparently the bigger rooms and the apartments are good. The location is good for full moon party and staff is nice


Given the previous reviews we were expecting something really bad but apart the shower everything was fine. Value for money accommodation during the full moon party.


So different to the pictures. I think the reason for the mixed reviews is the types of bungalow there are. The garden bungalows, which are for 2 people with aircon are horrible. They are tired, dirty, and unsecure. They also smell. However they have some nice bungalows but these are for groups. If its for 2 people I would avoid.


Really far from reality. I have written a formal complain. Hostelbookers should make sure that the places that are advertised are at lease similar to how they look.

We had a nice stay at Charung. Friendly staff and good location. Recommend it!


Cheapest bungalows were cheap compared to all the resorts in the same area. However the bungalows were pretty bad. Just a room with a bed and a fan, that's it. Lock on the door was not great either. Staff was quite friendly btw, flexible check-out times.
