Stayed at Little Buddha for 3 nights, probably the cheapest accommodations we stayed in Thailand. It was recommended to me by a friend who is much more accustomed to backpacking than I. Very large room was incredibly clean with nice aircon, decent channels on TV, small deck overlooking the neighbours' backyard. Only issue was the mattress which was very lumpy... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend. They told me it was a guesthouse and it was no frills. It was cheap, but in a good location. Well. they were right. There was a 7 Eleven downstairs, as were several tour agents, a laundry and a monetary exchange. It was a few hundred metres from the intersection where... More

Stayed a few nights here after returning from Phi Phi, and loved it. The staff were fantastic and so friendly. There's no elevator , but the rooms were clean, well appointed and spacious and the whole place felt very clozy and ethnic. It's decorated throughout with lovely Thai art and Buddah paintings which added to the feel of the place.... More

Synopsis (Overall + Value) We actually had booked at Chalemporn next door but ended up staying here for some reason. Decent place to stay, ok rooms and so so location. Good value. Probably would try staying someplace else next time. Location 15min walk from all the action really, the advantage is that you DO get a good night's sleep. 7/11... More

Booked trip and guesthouse last minute before reading TripAdvisor reviews. If you are going to embrace the craziness that is Patong, this is a nice, inexpensive place to do it from. Rooms and overall guesthouse were very clean. As suggested by one reviewer, we stayed on the backside of the building, away from the street noise. AC and fan worked... More

If you like being up all night with the sounds of people screaming, hookers at the lobby (well this is thailand there are hookers everywhere) and motorbikes engine roaring (from the outside street)...then this is the place for you. Rooms have the standard tv, toilet, bed and flimsy pillows and sheets. The toilet is ok, water is a bit lacking... More

So, I booked this hotel based on a recommendation and 4 of us stayed there. We booked it on the internet and put down an 8% deposit via our credit card. This is where the problems started. First of all, I got double charged my 8% and got an email saying all of my reservations were canceled via email. I... More

If you are determined to stay if the overpriced hellhole that is Patong, this property is an OK choice. Rooms are clean, modern, well-equipped. Free wifi. Staff friendly. Location is 10 min walk from Bangla. Tip: do not book through a website because they add the commission to the room price. Contact hotel directly.
