We booked a double room with a window for 18 USD per night. Initially we only planned to stay in the city for 3 nights but because of the public holidays, we ended staying a total of six nights (plus a night on our return journey to catch a flight to Bangkok).
The guesthouse is family run. It is in a great little alley way just off the main strip of the backpackers area. On our arrival, we phoned them and they sent someone to meet us from the bus and escort us back to the guesthouse (we'd have had difficulty in finding it ourselves). Through out our stay all of the staff were exceedingly helpful and polite.
Our room (101) was luckily on the first floor and at the rear of the property. We had a comfortable bed, TV, fridge and small bedside table. It would have been nice to have somewhere to hang our clothes (a small rail perhaps), although not everyone probably stays as long as we did. There was a ensuite bathroom with shower. The rooms were cleaned daily and we were supplied with fresh towels also.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to return.
There is a good roof top bar on the main strip called The View (it's on the sixth floor of a large hotel, called something like Du Vong). They have a happy hour (half price cocktail of the day) and cheapish beer. It has great views and is nice to watch the hustle and bustle down below.
