Room was clean, beds are comfy and the bathroom was one of the best we've had. We had a fan room, which was all we needed, as we slept with one window open for the breeze. The staff are friendly and helpful, the wifi worked really well in the room.
The restaurant is delicious, we had great fresh food and really enjoyed the Mango Tango drink, miang and fresh spring rolls (if you're looking for suggestions from the huge menu).
It's a bit of a walk to the main town, about 20 minutes and there aren't many tuk-tuks to flag down immediately outside the hostel, but if you cross the bridge and look for one you'll be fine.
Would stay again.

I stayed at apples with my girlfriend in January for 2 nights whilst travelling after seeing all the great reviews on trip advisor. The guesthouse loved up to and exceeded our expectations, it was amazing. The room was clean spacious and comes with air con and hot water.

We also booked a trip with the guesthouse and went to erawan national park to see the waterfalls, bathed and rode elephants and visited the death railway and bridge over the river Kwai. The trip was really organised and we arrived at the national park before a lot of the crowds arrived with lunch included in the trip and water all for around 1700b whereas a tourist office tried to charge is 5400b.

I would happily recommend this Guesthouse if you wish to have a pleasant stay with friendly staff.

It's just an amazing experience to join the cooking course.
It started from understanding the dishes on their menu and chose our favourite dishes to cook.
Then we visited the market and learnt a lot from Noi!
We cooked in a nice, bright and clean kitchen. Food is delicious and really had learnt a lot about Thai food! Absolutely lovely experience!

We stayed in Apple's guesthouse in town, which is now called Nirvana guesthouse, but has the Apple's sign outside still.

The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms seemed newly refurbished and great value for basic accommodation (we stayed in the air con rooms). The garden area was beautifully kept. I was very impressed and will definitely be returning again soon!

Apple's Retreat was such a welcome find! I had stayed in their previous location and this on is even better. The rooms are quiet and clean with new bedding. The restaurant is the best one we went to here. They are on the opposite side of the river from all the action but it is worth the 5-10 minute walk to escape the creepy farangs picking up bar girls.
