Reviewed May 21, 2011

This place is a really good deal. We paid 270 for a double room and the room was spacious with a tiny desk and chair + wardrobe and drawers.
Obviously for this price this is shared cold shower, don't provide any towel, extra sheets or toilet paper for free but the place itself is really cute, all wooden house make you feel like in a movie. The showers were clean and the common area is spacious where you can easily meet people. Oh yeah! they have free wifi in the rooms too :)
Great location too, near Kao San Road but far enough to be quite

Okay the bad points now, the family hosting you are NOT nice. Actually the lady who welcomed us the first day was really nice, fluent in ENglish and helpful. But we saw her only twice over 5nights! The rest of your time you have to deal with this old couple staying in the lobby old day. They don't have any patience with you, very rigid and basically don't give a [--] about you. After your check out you can leave your bags for free but all the rest (WiFi, shower,..) will be charged 50 bahts.


Overall, really good backpacker place to stay just don't expect anything from the staff.

Nice guesthouse, in a very good location, close enough to Khao San Rd, but also far enough for being quiet, in a real thai neighbourhood.
Spacious rooms, all wooden. Free WIFI.
Nevertheless, there is only cold water in the showers and no bed linen. I guess this is what you can get for 270 bath/night for a couple room. Walls are made of wood, which means rooms are not very well isolated; this can be a big problem if your room is by the bathroom.
Some of the staff can be really rude, some can be really nice...

Liked: location (just off Samsen Rd were a lot of bars/restaurant are, Khao San Rd is just min away), spacious rooms, clean shared bathroom and loved all the wood in this traditional house. This all for 250 Baht for a double room.
Also nice that this guesthouse is really a part of the local street. Take advance of the cheap water refill osmose filter machines that are in the street.
Disliked: uhm, the sign is not clear, so you will easily pass it. It is the last guesthouse on your righthand in Soi 1, just before the street makes a left turn.
