I have just stayed at Zabava Guest House and contrary to other people I did not have a problem finding it at all. Funny enough even taxi drivers argue with you that there is no such place called Zabava and i believe it has been called 'Aloha' before. It is located in a small lane behind the main strip/beach road, the best marker to look for is Bollywood Indian restaurant, then turn into the little lane.
Very convenient location in walking distance to all shops, restaurants, beach and long tail boat departure points.
I stayed in the Deluxe blue room, the only room that has got a balcony and what clever marketing probably would sell as ocean glimpses ;). The room is tastefully furnished and absolutely huge (other places would sell this as a suite) with all the amenities you would not necessary expect from am guest house such as air con, fridge, kettle, safe, tv, free bottled water, coffee, tea and little bisquits every day.
There is enough storage in a kind of dressing area in front of the bathroom and the room comes with a king size bed, little writing desk and extra sofa. Another plus are the plentiful power points to charge your devices such as mobile phones, computers etc. The free wifi works excellent day and night.
The room gets cleaned every day and you also get fresh towels dailynot necessary something to take for granted even in better rated hotels.
The owner Gyp can be found at reception between 9 am and 6 pm and she is a very friendly lady although with limited english but she is making every effort to help you. During low season you can negotiate a price of 700 Baht per night if you stay for a few days.Breakfast is not included in the price but there are plenty of options nearby.
In short this is an excellent choice for someone who travels on a budget, wants to be close to everything and does not need amenities such as a pool.
