At $4 for a room with two double beds, it doesn't get any cheaper than this. The rooms are clean but it kind of feels like a closet converted into a room. Can't expect much for the price. The food is also good.
The place isn't located around the lake and with little to no lights or tuk tuks in ban lung it's a bit difficult to visit other restaurants after dark. The employees also stayed up very late and were very loud at night so it was a bit annoying trying to sleep. Most annoying was the fact that their website and employees informed us that there was hot shower available. The hot shower didn't work. I can understand that for $4 that might be too much to ask for but don't advertise it if you don't have it.
