The best place to stay in Koh Samet”

This place is located in the middle of everything 10 minutes walk to the pier, a few minutes to restaurants, bars, stores, 5 minutes to the beautiful beach Room was nice and clean, proper hot shower, quiet at night since rooms are on the backstreet, washing machine and hanging space(I think only here in the island) Staff are very friendly and nice One of the cheapest rooms in the island but the best for price for sure Would be the best option for long term stay

Great stay, great value ”

Loved it here. We stayed in one of the air conditioned rooms which was very comfortable. The room had a balcony which was nice to sit on in the evening. The fridge and tea and coffee making facilities was great considering the price of the room. Staff were very friendly and can arrange tours and motorbike hire. Only slight negative is the WiFi was poor in our room but it didn’t cause us any problems as I just used my mobile data. 4G signal with Dtac sim

Great place if you are a lage family. ”

We stayed at this house for a few days, 5 adults and 2 children. The price for what was offered was very good. The apartment was very and well stocked with toiletries as well as snacks. The island is quite small so we had no trouble getting around via rented scooters. This apartment was also within walking distance of a 7/11 , bars and restaurants. The staff was also very kind and pleasant. Would return again !

Excellent Place for Expats”

This is the second time I’ve stayed at Runa Runa. The first sharing with one co-worker and the second sharing a “hostel” like room with 5 single beds with four other co-workers. Both stays gave us a great location, right down the road from the national park entrance, and comfort for our price range. Nothing too outstanding about the rooms but for the money the location and cleanliness is definitely outstanding. Unless I go for a splurge weekend Runa Runa is definitely my chosen hotel for Koh Samet. Plus, the staff is very helpful.

Nice cheap guesthouse”

The guesthouse is pretty nice, clean and affordable, one of the cheapest on the island. It's located well, close to the main street of the village with a lot of places to have a breakfast, lunch or dinner. A decent and not overcrowded beach is about 20 min away though. There is a lovely terrace where you might unexpectedly meet friends you made in other parts of Thailand :D

Basic stay on Koh Same ”

Good stay at Runa Runa. We were there over a holiday weekend so the price was quite high for what we got, however I think it was just the going rate for the island that weekend. Room is small but very clean and great for sleeping. Overall, we had a pleasant stay and would recommend for budget travelers.

Pleasant stay for the price.”

I stayed in one of the smaller rooms with a shared bathroom for two nights. The price was very low due to the lack of tourists because of Covid restrictions. The guesthouse was close to the main beach and many restaurants and shops. I think I may have been the only guest during my stay because I did not see anyone else. I was in a room in an outdoor hallway of about 10 rooms with one shared bathroom that had a single shower, sink and toilet. The bathroom was very clean and I was the only one using it. Soap, shampoo, and toilet paper provided. The low price room, however, was quite small and did not have air conditioning. There was only a fan in the room at it would get pretty hot even at night. They have rooms with AC that cost a bit more. There are many types of rooms available, all located behind the main office on a back road so there is ample privacy. There are even hostel rooms and an outdoor sitting area for young travelers in groups that want to crash together.
