I had heard many good things about the Fisherman's Village at Bophut and decided to visit it on my way back from Koh Phangan. However I had not booked anything and soon realised that Fisherman's Village is a more expensive resort area than many others in Koh Samui. By accident I found Castaway Guesthouse that offers very reasonably priced rooms...

What a perfect find, even if it was an accident! Friendly little hostel with good sized rooms, air con, flushing loos and warm showers. Comfy beds and lovely white linen. Situated a stones throw from the beautiful beach and amongst the many shops and restaurants in Fisherman's Village this little gem has outside space, small bar and reception chill out...

The rooms are modern and light (freshly painted), and there's a bar and chill-out space downstairs with genuinely the cheapest drinks in Fisherman's (60 baht beers!). Run by a professional and friendly English owner. If you're after a great priced room in a central location but away from noise, this is the place.

I come to Castaway alot. I like the Happy Hour in the nearly refurbished chillout area at 60b a beer you really cannot complain. Its perfect for rainy days. Sit back on comfy beanbags watch new movies or listen to music or play one of the many games available to while away the time. All the rooms have been recently...

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...

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...
