The bungalows are new and adorable and right on the water! The owners are so lovely and helpful. They arranged for a friend to drive us south on the island instead of us having to find a cab and make a million stops along the way for other passengers. The location is perfect. It is on the quieter side of...

We trekked (and spent good money) to get here. Told on our arrival,14th December 2016, they were closed for building work. No date given for re-opening. Expensive waste of a day. Not at al impressed with it.

Firstly staying 1 night on arrival then again a few nights later with a group of friends. They arranged a taxi to collect me as I arrived late at night.The rooms were basic but clean and simple. Great location in the middle of Fisherman's Village but back off the road enough to not hear much. Good for the price!

Stayed for two nights and made the mistake of only getting a fan in the room. The room was stifling hot, but there is no net on the windows for you to leave them open and not be eaten :( security on the Windows is also questionable as you can slide them open. The only other problem was the very...

First we booked a three-bedroom and when we arrived, we were split into 2 different rooms for one night. In one of this rooms (2 bed) the shower didn't work, so they moved us in another room, where the AC didn't work. The second day we finally got our three-bedroom. The flush of the toilet barely worked und the AC...

We organised a taxi pick up from the airport, however it never arrived. Once we did arrive at the hostel the man at reception said that another lady will be in the next day who we can let know that this happened. However the next day the same man then said it was her day off. There was a leak...

Just a few things like a bed in the room, an own bathroom and everything's allright on the first sight. It's very clean, but just in the second night, the air conditioning broke down and so it became freaking hot in that room. It dropped on our bed and wasn't that nice anymore. But all in all the rooms are...

Great little place which I think is under new management! Friendly people and wicked facilities. With fishermans village right there, you don't need to rent those dangerous motorbikes or jump in expensive taxis.... everything is right on Castaway's doorstep! Perfect for backpackers, families and all inbetween! Thanks for a memorable stay Castaway crew, will miss ya.

Myself and a group of friends just stayed at this newly renovated and managed hostel/guesthouse for the full moon.

Alas it seems the old Lonely Planet recommendation plague has finally hit this guest house. Really don't bother going here because it is a cheap and nasty hole, if you are on a budget go along to the next bay, Mae Nam where there are more choices. Bo Phut generally has mid-high range stuff. Anyway, firstly we were put in...
