I fond this guesthouse in LP and didn't check tripadvisor before hand.
The review which mentions the clutter is correct, the owners sure are hoarders, as far as I could see there was clutter in at least one room on each floor. We're talking empty glass bottles, brushes, broken showers, buckets .... I am a tidy person so this struck me as very odd but did not ruin my stay.
My room was on the top floor - yep, there are a lot of steps! The beds were of the foam variety and large singles. Personally, I found the beds comfortable if a little strange at first (you sink right in to them). The bed linen was clean.
Cable TV worked well with maybe 2 English speaking channels.
It sounds as if I lucked out as I had 2 windows each looking out on to the street, this meant that with both windows open and the fan on the room was cool. However, the street is busy and noisy - not an option for light sleepers.
The bathroom was of a good enough quality. Water pressure was as expected in Asia, not great but you just have to accept that! Bathroom was cleanish, the usual cobwebs adorned the ceiling. After a shower a drain smell would gradually fill the bathroom and would get steadily worse throughout the night. With the door shut, the smell was contained.
I mentioned the smell to the owner and daughter the next morning. The smell was dealt with that day whilst I was out. I was told the smell may come back and sure enough it did. I told the daughter again the next day and she sorted it. The smell is the problem experienced throughout PP, the city has a sewerage system that requires some work and this problem will not be contained to just Last Home.
I didn't find any of the staff rude, only helpful and understanding. Nothing was stolen. I didn't eat at the guesthouse; I agree with another review that the kitchen didn't look great.
Location is good and there are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants close by. Friends Restaurant, Seeing Hands massage and Friends n Stuff is just around the corner.
