I turned up over New Year without a reservation and found this place by just looking around. It's up a soi. There are two buildings, PU1 on the left, and the new extension, PU2 about another 15 meters on the right. I stayed in the new building, number two.
I was told there was only one single left. It was on the ground floor of the main building and the only non-attached room, priced at 300 with fan. The bathroom was opposite. There was a washing machine outside the door but I was told it wasn't in use. The room had a double bed, fan, table but no stool or chair, and a window that looked onto a courtyard. The long courtyard had tables and benches and a single story building on the other side with 300 bath rooms but with benches and attached toilet.
I checked in, and then a woman came and started the washing machine. I complained at reception and it was explained it's broken. The woman using it is from Lao (staff), doesn't speak Thai and doesn't understand it doesn't work. This went on for a day or so and I kept unplugging it.
The staff were a bit short with me but other times friendly. The matriarch who runs it is at the other place but I got to know her and she told me she was looking for 'volunteers' to work there.
At night time, I could hear people shower occasionally. There's a big fish tank in the back with a pump that goes on all the time.
But at the end of the day, I slept really well here. The bed was comfy. I didn't use mosquito coils but never got bitten. Past eleven pm. it was quite quiet.
Also, the fact it has this long strip with tables plus an upstairs verandah and a family feel I think it would be quite a good choice for someone with young children and I saw a few families check in.
But the non-attached room is overpriced.
My conclusion is: ... I liked it, but go for the attached fans or nicer.
