We stayed here for 4 nights in total sandwiched around a trip to Elephants World, and it was an experience! This was the first quintessentially Thai place we stayed in during our trip in Thailand. The location is stunning - huts built on stilts right onto the river. It had been rebuilt 6 years ago due to destruction caused by... More

Very nice people own this place, but it is leading to abandon (no services, woodwalk not really safe). That's too bad. The view is very nice and quiet, that's the best point. But you can find cheaper and better places around.

Yes, this guesthouse has been around for a long time and it is not "up to date" on all things interior wise. However, where it lacks in decor and/or modern fittings it makes up for in charm, natural beauty and friendliness. I stayed 1 month in the basic double room. For people who said the bathroom is dirty, its not... More

We took a room for two person and pay 800 baht. The room was basic with only a bed, toilet and cold shower. The room was full of dust, spiderwebs and cockroaches. This is the worst guesthouse we've ever had and we didnt sleep at all that night. Next day we found another guesthouse, about 300 m far from this... More

Considering the location which is excellent, and the views, amazing, and the price 450B A/C with bathroom, rustic is the kindest way to describe this G/H if you want everything perfect expect to pay double. You get what you pay for!

While I cannot say for 8$ this was a bad place it is only in comparison to what you can get at this cost in Kanchanaburi which makes this a let down. I made my first ever pre-booking for a night before arriving thinking I would have difficulty in finding a place upon arrival...I wish I could get my money... More

A very nice guesthouse with rooms on the water! The rooms are basic but nice. But the owner is very friendly! Even did our loundry properly! Really recommend this place for a stay in Kanchanaburi! The view is awesome and a cool experience to have a room on the river Kwai.

At first we took a room for 400 baht (10 euro). The room was very basic (which is not a problem for only 400 baht), but the toilet was a french toilet (hole in the ground), uncleaned filled with poop. After flushing it, we decided to ask for a different room and we ended up in a room for 250... More

We saw the reviews so were excited for our arrival at the river guest house, we had a massive shock. The photos must be old as the place seemed to be falling apart. We got shown a room thinking we'd give it a chance but even the man suggested going to one down the road instead. The air con didn't... More
