“Less than impressed”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

As budget backpackers, we did not have incredibly high expectations of YourHouse, other than a clean and basic place to stay. However, upon arrival at 3am (which the staff assured us would be fine) there was no one to let us into our rooms. We spent 2 hours sleeping outside before someone finally showed up. Inside the rooms were dingy, seemed unclean (however no bugs) and there were no towels or toilet paper provided. Upsides: working wifi in the rooms, nice common area, friendly staff, good location and a large bed.

I stayed here with a fried for 3 nights and to the end we loved this place, althought I seemed to get the feeling that the staff does not like us, it was not until we checked out that we realised this was true.
We asked the manager for the location of a place and were told that we need to contact the place we booked our bus from. She told us that because we did not book it here, it's not her problem, I was very surprised about this.
We spoke to another person who worked here and explained to him that we have spent 3 nights here and we have recommended 2 of our other friends here and were told that they don't care about that, because they don't make enough money from the rooms. We were told that they don't need our recommendations if we are not going to book anything from here! All in all they were extremely unhelpful just because we booked our tours and bus from another agency. Terrible!

we arrived at 7:30 am from the night train from bangkok (2 male backpackers), this place was the only one we could find open and we were greeted warmly by Vincent. We got 2 rooms in the older building, which were just fine, fans in each room and we felt our luggage / equipment were completely safe each time we left. The restaurant next door was convenient and we were greeted by another employee with a wicked sense of humour who also did tours. Centrally located, fantastic staff, laundry services and security made the stay here great.

Personnel was friendly and helpful, location is quite central (close to the Tha Paht gate), price was ok for the guest house as well as for the day trips they offer. We stayed in Yourhouse no. 3 which was built in 2008 and the room equipment was still in a good shape. Cleanliness of the rooms, blankets and towels was also good, except for the ants. They had big ants on the floor which was ok for us because they remained there, but there were a lot of small ants which came creeping in the bed and in our clothes. We mentioned this to the manager, but he did not seem too much interested. The noise from the nearby music club comes nearly undamped into the room even when door and windows are closed. Until 2 a.m. we could not sleep. We changed to another guest house (without noise and without ants) after 2 nights.

I really liked this guesthouse, as it was in a great location and great value for money (cleanliness is VERY important to me), however weird vibes from other travellers. I constantly got the impression that there were some dodgy dealings going on with the largely European clientele - I couldn't count the number of late night door slams and fights breaking out among them. However this isn't the fault of the hostel staff, who were largely friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask about the different types of rooms - they have about three properties in the vicinity.

Never again. I'm a guest and want to be treated like one! We stayed here 3 nights and wanted to leave the second. Every time we were unfriendly treated. No towels in the room. Ask the unfriendly receptionst. If there is a receptionist. Breakfast. After 15 minutes being completely ignored, we left for another place. Renting a motorbike? The owner charged more fuel than used. A huge discussion. During check out, the receptionist spelled us a lesson (like a teacher) that we should ask the bill earlier. (find some more staff please!) Generally spoken this was a very unpleasant experience. We were wondering what we did wrong. Or was it that we are a gay couple?

Room Tip: Rooms have well isolated windows, so the bar next door doesn't disturbed us.
