I stayed here 5 years ago and came back for the garden. The rooms are basic backpacker rooms, shower over the toilet with a fan. You don't need A/C here. You can get a single for 350 baht and a double for I think 450 baht. The garden is really beautiful and peaceful except for late evening when noisy drunk... More

This is a fab hostel. It had a lovely atmosphere about it and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. You can easily walk into the centre and it's slightly off the main high street so it's very quiet at night. The rooms were a good size (very hard bed...but what do you expect at such a cheap price!) with... More

This place is lovely and well-organised, the garden offers a great chance to relax or have breakfast among beautiful flowers and plants. It is really close to the bus station, so you won’t need to pay a tuk-tuk to get there and the bus station is the place where the night market is organized every night, so you will be... More

We absolutely loved our time here and even ended up extending our stay a few days! We paid 400B/night for a lovely, clean cosy double fan room with hot water and towels and soap included. There was a great outdoor area outside our room- under a flight of stairs- which was perfect for my morning yoga practice; indeed it was... More

We'd made reservations at the Baan Bua Homestay but it was overbooked. So the owner brought us over to Baan Bua Guesthouse. Apparently, they're family-owned and related. The place has quite a nice garden. Centrally located. Near to the clock tower, the night market, the laundry. Very nice.

Stayed 2 nights in small basic room downstairs to side so it was quiet if a bit dark. Clean, good hot water and firm bed. Towels were good and thick. The bright green walls are a bit kitsch. Old worn chairs outside. The big plus of staying here is the quiet garden setting which is a relaxing escape to meet... More

We arrive quite late, coming from Myanmar. The 450baht room was cheap but the bed turned put to be too hard, the pillow too high, and the bathroom sink broken ... The water came down from under the sink so your feet get totally wet. Luckily the (not clean) toilet did not have that problem :-) There is another place... More
