“A night for less than a pint!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2011

A room at Rabieng costs 120 baht. Thats £2.40. Rooms are basic, what do you expect for that price?
You get a bed, fan and a couple of sockets to charge phone.
Best thing about Rabieng is the Restaurant. A traditional wooden structure overlooking the Phet river. The food is excellent thai fare, try crispy catfish or Sea bass (You need to order this early in the day so the cook can pick up a fresh one!) You can watch huge water monitors on the river whilst your food is prepared. Lots of local Thais use the restaurant, always a good sign!
Rabieng do laundry, motorbike and cycle hire, and can arrange tours to see local wildlife. They have free internet and the owners Nit and Tom are helpful and informative. You even get a free local map when you check-in.
This is a real back-packers haven, its no-frills and a bit rough around the edges but full of genuine charm. I came for a day and stayed for a week! I met people from France, Japan, Korea and Germany whilst here and have fond memories of talking football late into the night with Tom after Nit had gone to bed.

I believe that this guesthouse has the potential to be pretty good. It has character, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Our double room (240B per night) was small and dark but I would not have minded that if it had been clean! In fact, everything up to about waist height was clean, so the bed and floor were clean, but everything above this height (including the window slats, walls, fans, ceiling, pipes, etc) were covered in a thick layer of dust and grime. A few hours of vigorous cleaning and a fresh coat of paint could have made such a difference to the place!

The other problem was the sheer number of mosquitoes in the toilets/showers. Mosquito nets or coils would at least have shown that the management were trying to do something about the problem. As it was, we took our own coil and spray into the shower and raced against time to get out with as few bites as possible.

No hot water or wifi, but I wouldn’t see this as a problem given the price of the room.
