“Great guesthouse, great owners, great location.”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

This place is perfect. It's right near all the fun around the Khao San Road, but far enough to get away from the claustrophobia of it all. Great value for money, the chance to meet other travelers in a nice relaxed environment and the rooms are spacious, quiet and clean. Would recommend getting air con if you can!

The main plus about this place, however, were the owners. The sweetest people you will ever meet, and the perfect locals to welcome you to Thailand. Just the little touches they've made around the place give it such a great vibe (look out for the smiley face toast). You can also organise loads of tours through them.

It's not often you meet people who are happy to go the extra mile for you! I actually ordered some tailor made suits that never arrived in England. It had been four months later, when I emailed Sung Sung who called up over and over and over again until they finally sent my things to England. Thank you! (Sung Sung also came and woke up my friends and I when we overslept, hung over, and almost missed a tour we had booked.)

Great Wifi, and breakfast included. Clean bathrooms too.

It was a perfect start to our trip.

The staff are very friendly and always available if you have any queries. The accommodation was clean and simple, just what we were after. Air conditioning works well. Shared bathrooms and shower were no problem, never had to wait. Overall great stay!

Staff very friendly, one of the only places on our travels that had free breakfast and wifi. Fast and cheap laundry service. Great location for seeing all the sights. Nice places to eat nearby down the back streets. In all excellent value for money, would definitely go back :)

This is perfect for people looking for a single or double occupancy room on a budget. The place is very clean and just a short walk to Khao San Road. Make sure you know if your room has A/C because some of them don't. Also the room next to the washing machine may be woken up from the noise if you're a light sleeper.

Such a lovely stay here - the staff were really friendly and helpful! Simple rooms and shared bathroom but we never waited for a shower. Free breakfast and wifi fantastic when on a budget. Got our laundry done as well, and the service was really quick.

Great location in the old town - near the river ferry and walkable to Khao San Road.

Had an excellent stay here. It is a very secure guesthouse - which is a great plus when traveling! - and lovely people who run it.
The mattresses take some getting used to (very hard), but I guess that also depends on your personal preferences. Otherwise, perfect!
Thank you Isa Sang Sang, see you again in August!!

Make sure to book ahead since they are in demand and fully booked. I really wanted to come back before my flight back to Europe, and I only just managed to reserve the last room, and it's 5 weeks from now.

Reviewed June 29, 2013

we arrived very late the night we stayed here but the staff were happy to stay up and wait for us, our room was large and comfortable as well as very clean, the bathrooms are shared but adequately clean, while there was no one who spoke English on the front desk when we needed to book tickets (it was quite early about 830am and we needed them for that day) they were able to wake someone who was happy to come and help, the prices for bus tickets and tours were more costly through the guesthouse but we didn't have time to go elsewhere, it is worth looking at the travel agencies around Khaosan rd where you are bound to find a great deal. Khaosan Rd is located about 5 mins walk from the guesthouse. There are plenty of hostels closer to Khaosan rd but if you want great service and a quiet but still central location this is the perfect guesthouse.
