My boyfriend an me travelled in december 2012 to thailand. We are a backpackers who try to get clean and safe budget guesthouses without reservation/on the fly. Fan-rooms are prefered because you will get used to the climate faster (and it's cheaper). We travel with sleeping bags, locks, powerstrip, toiletpaper, towels etc. so we will not shun a guesthouse if you get no free soap there.
We arrived late in Krabi, about 10.30PM and were trying to find a cheap Inn. The guesthouses in the lonely planet were booked out or to noisy (The Bag Inn has some kind of party every night/evening and we avoided dorms). After Checking the K guesthouse we arrived in the P Guesthouse. One room was available and so we checked in for 300B. The room was on the topfloor where a small bathtube was placed right before the door... it seemed like the roof was leaking. The room itself had a nice size with a huge rack/closet ... which was a bit to large because it partially hid one of the two tiny windows. Also there was a television and a private bathroom with hot water and towels. We found bug cocoons in the bathroom, the window and some ceiling bars were broken and fixed with tape also the closet and the bed were a bit broken. The windows leaked so we used insect spray to avoid mosquitos. The owner of the guesthouse was friendly, helpful and talkactive. Like everyone else he tried to convince us for a boat trip. Nearby was a 7-Eleven but the location could be better (construction area/abandoned area nearby). In the end we were glad to leave.
The whole building needs a renovation, try to find something else.
