Stayed here after a recommendation in Rough guides and overall was a bit disappointing. The place was clean, you get free wifi in your room and a towel. However, the toilet didn't work and partly flooded so were moved into another room. We were happy until the next day the woman said we had to move our room again. As... More

Stayed here for one night. When we got there (we consist of four people), there are no people at all at the guest house, then the helper came and they can't speak english at all. They only called for their madam (the owner) and she ask us to choose the room we comfort of. The owner is very nice! Lucky... More

We (my husband & I and our friend, so there were two rooms) were booked into Kangaroo from 20th-27th December 2013 but when we arrived Pi had overbooked and asked if we would stay at Thiri Hotel for a couple of nights. She was very apologetic for the inconvenience and decided that she would pay the Thiri Hotel for our... More

I planned to stay only a couple nights but wound up there for 5 thanks to very friendly and helpful manager and staff at the Kangaroo. Rooms are basic and clean with everything you really need when traveling light and simply. Everything worked as hoped including the AirCon and I slept well every night.

The guesthouse lays quite near some 7-Eleven, banks and nightlife (not very much in the south part of Karon, but ok for some bar visists, shopping and restaurants). The room was clean, great! bed, clean sheets, new (?) pillows, a fridge (only water, non minibar in my case), a small TV (a bit lack of reception quality), a clean, working... More

I had booked this guesthouse in advance based on TA reviews. Myself and my wife stayed in this guesthouse 1 night and cancelled the rest of our 6 night stay. These rooms may be geared more towards backpackers. The rooms were small and dirty and in a bad location. Cheap & there is a reason for it.

This is a great place for backpackers or anyone on a tighter budget. 600 baht in the high season for a room with A/C , TV , private bathroom and a balcony.
