It will not be the accommodation of your dreams, but if you are under budget and you intend to spend in Mae Hong Son one or two night, this guest house might be the choice. Is very basic, but central, near the lake, clean, quiet and with a friendly atmosphere... Breakfast not included, but if you don't want to leave... More

I was staying here for 2 nights. Very clean, silent, stuff do not disturb You at all. Has a good location - just near the lake where You can admire the views of twin-pagodas! 10 minutes walking to the central market where You can have Your cheap local food. 5 minutes walking from the main street of Mae Hong Son.

We arrived in Mae Hong Son about 6pm and tried to find somewhere with a lake view for the night. We looked at all the surrounding hostels and this definitely had the cleanest room for the best price. It's very simple - just mattresses on the floor and the walls were very, very thin - but it's comfortable and well... More

My partner and I had a double fan room with a shared bathroom for 200B/night. The room was nothing more than two matresses on the floor, with bedding, but it was clean and really cheap. The bathrooms could have been cleaner but you get what you pay for; the showers were at least powerful and warm enough. Wifi was free... More

We went to this guesthouse 3 days ago, it's a really cheap guesthouse 300B for a clean room with bathroom. There is a double mattress on the floor, and you have a hot shower. Everywhere around the lake there is a couple of GH but it's more expensive and not really clean. The breakfast is generous and cheap as well,... More

We paid 250 bhat for a double with fan and shared bathroom. Dirt cheap and you get what you pay for! Clean room with matrass on the floor, shared but clean bathroom with hot water. For me it was just fine! Had we stayed longer in Mae Hong Son, I wouldn't have switched guesthouse! Staff was friendly and location was... More

I stayed here for just one night & it was ok but I don't think I'd want to stay any longer. It's just a mattress on the floor with the hardest pillow I've had in Thailand & a shared bathroom. Towels were provided. Location is good right by the lake & convenient for the night market.

Nice, simple, no frills guesthouse. Sleeping mattresses on the floor, fan to keep mosquitos off of you, very close walk to everywhere in town. About 20 minute stroll from the bus station and right by the main lake park.

Good place to stay. Reasonably clean, free hot water if you bring your own coffee. 150 Baht per night so can't complain. No chickens were around when I was there. If you walk to the top of the road (away from the lake), at the very end is the morning market. This also sells food in the evening as well.... More

This was my second time in Mae Hong Son and stay at the Friend House. The location is top notch right next to the lake. It's run by a very nice family who make a delicious smoothie! The beds are matresses on the floor buy what more do you need? When we arrived there was only one room left for... More
