We checked this place in booking.com but we didn't want to book it until we see the room because the reviews said that was noise ( and after to check the place i why,i don't think we could even have rested properly there, it is more a common room than a hostel) When we arrived to the place asking for...

The place is well located. Not too close, not too far from the city. The rooms are OK for this price. BUT, the manager is too pushy and made us feel very uncomfortable in several occasions. When you arrive, he will ask you what are your plans. Not because he is curious, but because he wants you to travel with...

Warmly welcomed by the owner and his family, we spend 3 very quiet nights. Green Woods is close to the Tooth temple, it is fast to go there by walking (20 to 30 minutes). Compared to a guest house in downton, you have a nice surrounding of forest and no constant cars /buses/tuk-tuk traffic !

Peaceful guesthouse that is well-located : far enough from the buzz of the city center and near enough to go by walking if you don't want to take a tuktuk. Sarath will be your man if you need to chase the insects without killing them ;) And the monkey from the forest close-by will make your breakfast funnier !

We stayed three nights and returned after a trip north for a second stay. Both times were the rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast good and the view over the green forest fantastic. Situated close go the...

Breakfast was included and was good. The rooms were comfortable but slightly damp. The warm shower ran out of water with four of us but was nice while it lasted. However, the owner enforced a 10pm curfew which was not advertised or explained whilst booking or we would have stayed elsewhere. He was also very pushy when trying to make...

Green Woods was recommended to us by our driver who was aware that we were on a budget. I think we may have miscommunicated somewhere along the line however as we weren't looking for anything this basic. The guest house is located a short tuk-tuk ride from the city centre but has stunning views of the forest. The rooms are...

We received a hostile welcome when we arrive at this guest house. The owner got irate at our bid to barter the price down a bit. Room was slightly overpriced but fine apart from that but there was no luxury for the extra paid. Could see monkeys on balcony.
