I spent there one night, just waiting for the boat.. near to the train station... clean... cheap... Nothing more, nothing less that a good place for a night... Althought, the bathrooms (shared) are not the worst i seen... they could be cleaner... there is no hot water... The attached bar is not bad, but pretty expansive...

We haven't stayed there but we stopped by for lunch and drinks. The girls that work there were nice and the food was very good and cheap. It in town centre and close to train station. Definitely worth of visit, as there is not much other western places in town.

Room was small, but good enough. This guesthouse is nice, clean and quiet. It has a big territory with nice bar and lots of nice wooden tables, chairs, benches, etc. This place has a motorbike rental service as well. Train station is in about 7 minutes walk. It was only one problem there: you have to choose or to use...

If you are staying in Chumphon in Thailand and want a good farang meal, good music and atmosphere the Farang Bar is great. Food is extremely reasonably priced and very tasty. Close by to A Te Hotel which is also very good to stay. If you need to stay there is also a guesthouse attached

This place is great! Basic, cheap rooms with shared facilities in a courtyard setting. Great bar with very friendly and helpful staff. The owner, Ivor, is the font of all knowledge for all things to do with Koh Tao, the islands and just about everything else. Thanks!

We paid 250 Baht which is great for one night were you need only the basic. A bed and a shower! But unfortunately the place looked very run down to us. The shared bathrooms were horrible and the rooms quite dirty. A pity really, cos it could be really nice and maybe was once.

The room is really clean that's an important point when travelling. Unfortunately it seems to bother the hostess each time you ask something. Matress are really hard and no body in the morning was there to check you out so you can not leave your bag for the day and that's quite a problem. It's ok for tight budget but...
