I was very happy to find this place. The cottage was small and adequate with a surprisingly strong air cond. I was enchanted with little frogs in the bathroom and geckos on the wall. The geckos eat the mosquitoes and I like geckos. I love the cats wandering about Shirin Homestay. I wrote more in my livejournal here http://shanlung.livejournal.com/142681.html

This place is in a great location, just over the road from the beach. If you are a backpacker who is used to simple lodgings you will find this place just fine. The rooms all have their own bathrooms and the beer is VERY cheap! The only negatives - bathrooms need a scrub so thongs in there are needed. Can... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in one of the bungalows. The room was very good, even when the hot shower and aircon were not working, jajaja. But here you don't really need hot shower, and I prefer fan than aircon. The bungalow has a small and nice balcony, and was comfortable and clean. Location is excellent, just across the... More

we booked in advance, then we called from the harbour again, they promised to pick us up, but suddenly the car was broken. finaly gone there and there was no room available. they showed us a room, which was stinky and smelling of old shoes and sweating. so dont trust them when you book there. terrible place!
