The staff here could not care less for your custom. Unfortunately when looking around for a room or trying to order food or drink from the bar they have a knack of first disappearing and then when you do find someone they take 10 minutes to come back to you having totally misunderstood what you had asked for in the...

The jolly frog is cheap and so you get cheap rooms, cold showers, questionable sheets. But I didn't care because the setting was just stunning - and the sheets were cool, they had toy cars on. I stayed in the 190B double room which happened to be on the floating raft - incredible! Sitting on the porch in the evening... More

Dirt cheap rooms, only 290 bath for a 2-persons room, with an awesome garden, where you can relax and enjoy the view over the river. The rooms are okay, but what can you expect for that price!? There is a travel agency located in the restaurant (also cheap, but really good) and a scooter rental just around the corner. If... More

Been staying and eating here for about 10 years. I usually come to Kanchanaburi half a dozen to a dozen times every year. I always take the time to come over to Jolly Frog- and although I have seen some varying degrees of service- I have been pleased with the accommodations, the food and the service. I haven't been for... More

Lazy unfriendly receptionist, room not clean, sheets not clean, no towel, etc. Good for people who wanna save a buck but besides that: crap. Typical for popular places that are filled up with Koa San Rd folks who don't mind as long as they can sleep for 70 (seventy!!!) thai baht. prices: 70/150/200/290/400thb (latter is family room with 1 double...

Backpacking couple who stayed here for 1 night at the end of dec 2014. A guy on our bus, who was staying there, recommended it and having looked at the very cheap price vs very basic room (which we are always fine with), we decided to give it a go. When I connected to the internet though we started to... More

Gave it average becuase of great location and good grounds. Room was dirty and ac barely worked, shower was cold. Didn't eat here as service even to get a drink took ages. The place was also full of lots of sleazy old western men, I wouldn't stay here as a solo lady traveller.

First of all, I don't understand why this place is called Jolly Frog Backpackers, the guests were all lone old men. If you want to socialise, this is not the place to stay. It's got a very solitary feel about it. As 2 girls, we didn't feel safe in our room at night. Room was dirty & outdated & sheets... More

More like the deluded toad for me I'm afraid. Beautiful grounds and good food but our room was literally crawling with lizards, flying cockroaches, and other unidentifiable creatures. And there's no mosquito net. Needless to say we slept with one eye open. The showers are cold only. I'd say just pop in for a meal instead! :(
