I stayed here one night in a room with a shared bathroom. There was no hot water but it was freezing, just refreshing. The bed was comfortable. The air worked great. I actually woke up to turn it down. It was quiet even though it's right in the middle of the Main Street. The grounds are beautiful, colorful and serene. There is a small, clean round pool. A communal kitchen is available. The front desk staff was very helpful especially with bus information. I met some very nice travelers, mostly from the states. My friends had a great private room with a bathroom and a patio with seating. There is a community sitting area outside under a roof as well as an indoor area with a television. My room also had a tv but I nevere turned it on.
The Buddha house is one block from the beach. The main gate is locked at night for security and there is a staff member there 25 hours a day.
