Very friendly people. Really budget - I enjoyed it when I was studying there. The food was also low priced, and very tasty. I love the yard with the papaya tree. It is close to the river. Although not luxurious, it does have an exotic and also authentic atmosphere.

The guesthouse is situated about a 10 minute walk from the night bazar and other amenities. The room itself is fine, with big bed and good size room. However the bathroom is beyond gross and possibly one of the worst I have encountered during my time in Asia, I've honestly seen squatting toilets that are in better shape. All in...

We really liked this home stay. Good location, not inside the city but it was free rental of bicycle so it was really easy to get into the city! Not far :) the owner is really helpful and friendly!! Beds were nice, toilet was good maybe it needs a little improvement of the pressure in the shower but it was...

Budget place, ok for a night. Very friendly and helpfull owner and decent location but not very clean. We wanted to start cleaning as soon as we got in. Dust everywhere and some green on the shower walls. We booked for two weeks but soon realised there wouldn't be any cleaning done in that time. Not a fresh sheet or...

As I have seen the reviews saying how the dreadful and nasty the place is, I say I have seen worst places to stay but this is not one of them. For the price, it is relatively cheap provided that it is still a little bit closer to the night bazaar and between the main city and going towards the...

On arrival I actually cried when I saw the room. I had a choice of 5 rooms, all pretty much in the same state. However, I decided I'd give it a try as Ben the owner is a lovely guy and ever so helpful. I thought perhaps I was being a little over fussy and picky. And having paid only...

This place is filthy and unsanitary. Bed covers have never been washed. Floors are extremely dirty and they want you to take your shoes off ? Shower barely runs. Hot water is non existant and the toilet overflowed onto the floor. The place smells as well. Power points spark and plugs fall out as they are old and look dangerous....

We stayed for five nights in August, and were very disappointed by this hostel. When we arrived, the tap wasn't working, and neither was the shower. After asking on reception the next morning for them to have a look at it, we came back in the afternoon to see that they'd left our room unlocked all day after going in...
