If this property was on the opposite side of the bamboo bridge it would probably cost ten dollars more.
Yes, the room at 20m2 with large furniture within it is 'cosy' but there is everything in the room that you need and you can place your rucksacks on top of the wardrobe to save space.
Yes, the shower is above the toilet, but this has been done to keep all the plumbing in one place and we didn't find it a negative just a bit of an oddity.
Yes, wifi is a little slow and we couldn't get Facebook / Skype etc, but we managed to get these in town (try the Scandinavian Bakery) so, again, no problem for us.
The breakfast options were good - they offered the usual choice of eggs, toast and noodle or rice soup (you had to pre-order the noodle soup the day before which wasn't a problem for us).
There were plenty of places within the building to relax, read, etc.
There are free bicycles for guests to use and the owner will organise motorbike hire, bus tickets etc at a very good price.
Our only negative comment was that on one occasion our laundry came back marked - it looked like my wife's shorts and my t-shirt were accidentally bleached with the hotel towels. The owner was extremely apologetic and even offered to pay for replacements which, I thought, was very honest of him. We didn't take him up on his kind offer but we didn't pay for the laundry.
We would return to the hotel and are happy to recommend it to others.
And, a good restaurant tip, try the Pizza at the English School, just round the corner from the guesthouse. The pizzas are fantastic and it saves a walk into town.
