Room price was reasonable and the room was pretty nice, spacious, and comfortable, with A/C optional for more money, and hot showers. Would encourage them to offer at least a towel to guests - only guesthouse I stayed in Cambodia that didn't offer one.
Fantastic location right in BKK1, super close to a lot of great restaurants and bars. A quick ride to the riverside or Russian Market as well. Step out of your room onto the street and there's tons of great food and drink within walking distance.
Staff was young, cool, and helpful. Great place to base my travels from as they had solid info on buses and motorcycle rental. Knowledgeable and friendly drivers seemed to congregate outside the guesthouse, definitely had better luck with them than other tuk-tuk drivers elsewhere in the city.
Beer was cheap and cold, food was good as well. Lots of Western selections for the homesick traveler.
Only caveat is that the Top Banana is a really, really popular night spot for the backpacker crowd, and rocks all night with people and music. It was fantastic for meeting and mingling, but my room was right below the bar, and the one night I hit the sack early it was pretty hard to sleep with all the noise. So if you're looking for a quiet spot to base your adventures, probably not the best option.
