Arrived directly from the airport (assisted by the guest house) tired and was met with great hospitality and a perfect Rice and curry. We stayed three nights and returned after a trip north for a second stay. Both times were the rooms clean and comfortable. The breakfast good and the view over the green forest fantastic. Situated close go the... More

Breakfast was included and was good. The rooms were comfortable but slightly damp. The warm shower ran out of water with four of us but was nice while it lasted. However, the owner enforced a 10pm curfew which was not advertised or explained whilst booking or we would have stayed elsewhere. He was also very pushy when trying to make... More

Green Woods was recommended to us by our driver who was aware that we were on a budget. I think we may have miscommunicated somewhere along the line however as we weren't looking for anything this basic. The guest house is located a short tuk-tuk ride from the city centre but has stunning views of the forest. The rooms are... More

We received a hostile welcome when we arrive at this guest house. The owner got irate at our bid to barter the price down a bit. Room was slightly overpriced but fine apart from that but there was no luxury for the extra paid. Could see monkeys on balcony.

we were very disappointed with this place as it had been recommended by lonely planet. The host was very rude and hostel, the pillows had mould in them, and it is very far away from anything. The rooms are very basic for what you pay. The only good things were the views and the monkeys, but these are all over... More

You need to be on a budget or not mind quite basic locations because rooms are nothing special and quite next to the larger hall where someone could wake you up if getting in/out in the middle of the night. Apart from that it is in walking distance to the tooth and some nice pubs/restaurants and the view into the... More

We stayed at Green Woods Guest House for three nights. Although the bathroom could use an update the (hot) shower itself was alright. We enjoyed a couple of great rice & curries at this guest house. At the start of each day the monkeys on the balcony kept us company during our breakfasts at Green Wood, a truly unique experience.... More

Agreed to a price then they tried to charge us double. They lied and caused problems. They came into are rooms a lot and lights were turned on in are rooms when we were out which was an invasion of privacy and felt my stuff was unsafe. Nice hotel but not worth hassel.

I'm not really sure what to say about this place. Quite honestly, I wanted to leave immediately after seeing the room. However, the place grew on me (or I just adapted quickly because we didn't have another option). Room: Our room was off of the dining area, no natural window, dank bathroom with ants. It was clean enough (with hot... More
