Backpacker crash pad
Cozy Corner is one of two backpacker crash pads on Ko Kut.
It's right beside Mangrove Bungalows and the bungalows here are very similar. Regardless of fan or air-con you get the same hut (pay extra to get the remote) and these were some of the cheapest air-con huts we saw on Ko Kut -- and they even had TVs (and empty Sangsom bottles out front). In a nod to the mosquitos, bungalows are fully screened in, though note the bathrooms are not -- so keep that darn door closed! The location is a solid 10-minute walk to the beach, but that won't kill anyone, and you will get a bit of traffic noise during the day as songthaews hustle people to the waterfall. They also have a handful of discounted rooms in the building by the restaurant -- fan-cooled with shared facilities for 200 baht. Overall we think the share bathroom huts at Ngam Kho are better value (as they're right by beach) but if you're on a budget, want your own bathroom and don't mind a walk to the beach, Cozy Corner should be high on your list. If you can't get in here, a further kilometre down the waterfall road lies PD Guesthouse (T:(081) 750 5163) which advertises fan bungalows for 350 baht and air-con rooms for 500 baht -- they also had tents in their front yard making them a possible backup in high season.
