Great stay, cheap room for me alone with shared bathroom. Cold shower, which is okay due to the hot weather. Other facilities were good. Nice restaurant on first floor with view on rice fields. Food and drinks were good. I would advise to book your safari with this hotel as the quality was good and you can get a better... More

Stayed with Travellers home for 2 nights, including a Yala NP tour. The rooms are a bit basic but good value for money. The owner can give you a hard bargain, haha! We booked our Yala tour here for 10.000 Rp, for 2 persons including everything (breakfast, transport, entrance fee, no tips) in a luxury jeep. We had a good... More

The room was very spacious and clean, nice bathroom, towels and soap. Internet worked fine and there was a mozzy net and a comfy bed. I've paid a lot more elsewhere. The guesthouse has a restaurant upstairs, quite nice actually, maybe a little overpriced. The family and owner were extremely helpful and friendly. The safari however, you get what you... More

Very warm welcome from the owners, who put a lot of energy into organising a safari to Yala for me, despite some schedule constraints :-) I stayed only for a night, only to visit Yala National Park. It's perfect for a short, efficient and cheap stay. Food is good.

Reeelax, the manager will arrange the safari for a reasonable price (5 500 Rps per pax for 5-12 AM) and let you use the bathroom even after check-out. For the safari, much queue at 5AM will make you enter the national park after 6AM with all the many jeeps of the other tourists. - : The hotel is supposed to... More

A great location a short walk to town. Comfy rooms with hot water and a nice social area out front.. Food and drink was good quality and reasonably priced. Expect to wait for food as its cooked fresh to order, and if you want rice and curry order in advance. A double room en suite was 5000r per night so... More
