Mr
This place does not exist. Apparently John G skipped and the actual owner has changed the name to 'X' Bungalow and was unaware that we were even booked in. So - I lost my pre-booked money and had to walk around in the dark of night to find accommodation. There should be protection against such scams...

Nice stay
I booked this property (small bungalow) for two nights, unfortunately during my trip my leg got injured. So most of time I spend in my small bungalow. On my arrival owner of the property was present at reception and first he asked about my leg in a very nice way, also on asking he shared about one of the good local clinic, he also share about nearby nice restaurants and then lead me to the bungalow. Check in was quick and easy and with short chat with him I felt really good. Bungalow was basic with fan and attached bath room and hot water available, both room and bath were clean. Small room is with two windows and enough ventilation. Property is located near bars and party area so loud music till late night was normal and not a problem for me, but if you are looking for quite place may be this property is not a good choice. Over all this is a budget property and decent one in all the aspects .

I had an awesome time!
I stayed at Friend Bungalow for 5 nights. John and Niu are the hosts. I felt very welcomed there. Friend Bungalow is in the middle of the party village Lonley Beach. Everything is around the corner. Breakfast, laundry and motorbike rentals... the closest beach is in walking distance. Since main season did not start yet, Niu even had time to show me how to cook some Thai Food. Threw her you can also book almost any activity there is on kho chang. I definitely recommend to explore the island with a motor bike. Thank you for having me, I had an awesome time!

Cheap and very cheerful!
John is the most loveliest of hosts! From the get go we had everything we needed. The rooms are basic but clean and great value for money - what more could you want when travelling around? Friend Bungalow lies in the heart of the buzzing Lonely Beach - you can hear music play into the early hours (which we didn't mind as we were still in the bars till closing!). We wanted to rent a moped (which is a must when on Ko Chang!) and John recommended a neighbour who did us a great deal and was super friendly! I would definitely recommend to everybody!

Pleasant host and staff, charming location
On walking distance from the beach and in the vibrating partying center of Lonely Beach we enjoyed our stay here. Owner John and his staff were always very helpful. The bungalows are very basic but pleasant and clean and the garden is well kept. You get value for money.

The magic of Friend bungalow
I really enjoyed my stay at Friend Bungalow in Koh Chang. I was welcomed by the awesome owner John who was very helpful and friendly throughout my stay. The Friend bungalow seems to attract awesome people and I met some really lovely people there. The intimate reggae styled bar out the front was so much fun in the evening. I look forward to visiting again in the future.

Great location
Amazing location on lonely beach walk out the door and your on the strip. The guy who owned it was very friendly pointed us in the direction of where to book things. Beds were very comfortable as we had been staying in a wooden shack for two weeks. When we got the taxi from the port the taxi didn't actually know where the bungalows were so dropped us off at the wrong road and also when we were getting picked up they couldn't find us. This is not the fault of the friend bungalow I would just suggest to get picked up from a bar or the tourist info place just because we nearly missed out boat back.

Thank you for your kind review. Things are getting better and most taxis know where to find me but it is probably more fun to get picked up at a bar. All the best John

Private and very clean, best bungalows for the price.
I usually stay here every time I return to Lonely Beach. The bungalows have improved lately and the garden is quickly taking shape too. The location is perfect for the bars and less than a 10 minute walk to the beach, the bars have to be quiet (but remaining open) by 01:00 now, and the whole area benefits from this, returning the feel of the place to more how it was 10 years ago. I will definitely return to Lonely Beach and I will definitely stay here again.
