This was our first stop after Bangkok. As first time backpackers, Bangkok had left us a little bewildered and we were unsure what to expect from the rest of Thailand. Thai guesthouse and backpackers was absolutely perfect. The room was huge and comfortable. Good hot shower with a little lizard in the bathroom. After the overwhelming smells and sounds of... More

Ignore the Google map reference as this place is in a quiet alley clearly sign posted, opposite Nuts restaurant, at the southern end of the backpacker strip. Large clean room with comfortable bed. Excellent AC and wifi. Bathroom clean but our shower head/unit is on its last legs. No problem though. Friendly and helpful hosts. Bikes available for hire around... More

I really like this guest house, there are really only a few minor things that could be changed. The rooms are incredibly clean, the bed comfortable and clean with not a single bug or mozzie in the room on any of the three nights we stayed. It's in an ideal location with a 7/11 just across the road. There's a... More

You must remember this is a backpackers hotel so your own bathroom essentials have to be taken. The rooms were spacious and well appointed and really clean. The bathroom was good. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the outdoor setting was quaint. It was well located and off the main street but close to all amenities. Great fun.... More

Clean and comfortable. Good a/c, hot shower, bar bones, but nice. Neighbors dog barks a bit, but not after 9pm. Easy walk to food and fun. It was also an easy walk from the train station and well marked with a sign on the main road.

The room was huge for the price we paid and very comfortable beds. A/C was nice and cool as well. The old lady at the reception was really friendly, she brought us some fruits that we would never find those in Canada ever. 3 mins walk to CJ and washing machines.

The room was HUGE, very clean, comfortable bed, very nice owner that invited us for fresh fruit even though we arrived late in the evening. Located close to the city center, few minutes walk to restaurants and bars. But the place is quite and undesturbed. No breakfast included, but you have a fridge where you can store some food. All...
