“Cheap For a Reason”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Initial reactions early on in our trip had us searching for a cheap place to stay the night. After seeing a sign advertising 250 Baht per night with free Wifi and cheap breakfast, we thought we would book in.

Rooms are very basic. A hard double bed in a small square room with what looks to be like clean sheets and a fan is about it for the main room. The ensuite has a shower with a heater box on the wall that doesn't work, and the toilet is flushed by throwing bowls of water down it... Wear your thongs in the bathroom, it's not a pretty place.

Free WiFi is a plus, as well as cheap breakfast but after the state of the whole place we decided to find breakfast somewhere else. Although this is a place that looks like you should BYO padlocks. After hearing a few stories about other guesthouses in Chiang Mai having guests belongings dissapear we decided to padlock out bags as well as put our own lock on the door. Overkill - maybe, but better safe than sorry! There was noise all night outside from the ladyboy and other locals doing who knows what down stairs.

We paid 250 baht ($8.30 AUD) for both of us in a double room.

Although if you only need the room for 2 hours for some reason.... they do that too for 200 baht..... Lovely....

Do yourself a favor and keep walking. It's cheap, but I'm sure there is better for the same price.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are in the same area. Thin walls don't block out sound!
