The grounds at this place are breathtaking, its right on the river and a big garden with river side seats. The food is good and so cheap by far the best burger iv had in some time. But athough its cheap the rooms arr really dirty as in not beeen cleaned after the last 10 guests. The bathroom has thick... More

While the rooms are merely adequate for guest houses in Thailand, the view from the courtyard is spectacular. Hammocks and loungers overlook the river Kwai. The food is decent and inexpensive, and the location is ideal for any traveler.

Stayed 3 nights and stayed in the 290 room with air conditioning and bathroom Pros - Arrived after check in time was closed but I'd called ahead so someone stayed up for us. Beautiful grounds, on the river. Amazing and dirt cheap western food. Suggest the beef burger and Mexican food. You won't find a better burger for 50 baht... More

Happy to say that "the German lady"is back and Jolly Frog is under new management. With possibly the best spot in town, quiet but close to all the action and the advantage of having a great big garden by the river to relax in. Great restaurant with lots of choices and cheap food to banquet Thai. Standards had slipped over... More

Stayed here with 2 friends for 3 nights, the rooms were basic but price reflects this, there was a bed and working fan! Nice surroundings with a garden over looking the river which is also a great place to meet people! Food was great, we enjoyed all the meals we had here and great value for money! would stay here...

I stayed here as a solo traveler. And I oved it sooo much! My room was indeed small and sadly a little far from the shared bathroom. But it made up for that in so many other ways. For starters, as a female solo traveler, it felt safe. It had everything there, so I didn;t have to go out looking... More

Perfect to meet and share with backpackers, have some beers in front of the Kwai River! Closed to nice bars like the Raggae bar in the same street, it was a really great place to stay, we've met a lot of nice people and it's really cheap (we've paid 200 baht/night between 3). Just perfect to stay a few days... More

This place was just one disappointment after the next. Yes the rooms are cheap but it doesn't excuse the staffs manor. They are full of attitude and very unpleasant to interact with. The food is terrible, we left ours on the table as it was nothing like described in the menu. The room is like people say, what you pay... More

This place has everything a backpackers wants: a cheap room with enough comforts like a bed, closet, a simple bathroom with towels and the occasional cockrouch! I especially liked the little terrace in front of our room overlooking the beautiful garden, the perfect place to end the day with a beer.

Jolly frog is a nice backpackers place with the cheapest prices you will find in Kanchanaburi. You know what to expect of the place when you see the low prices for a a room. The rooms are OK and comes with a fan and a bathroom. It's not a clean place because you see some bugs creeping around the room... More
