Description: We are a simple, friendly, family run budget-style guesthouse with only eight twin or double bed rooms. One room of three single beds. No dormitories. We have our own restaurant offering both Thai and Western food. Our public bar is popular with travelers and locals alike, well stocked with extremely cold beer and specialty cocktails. We help with the full range of travel advice and ticketing. The English owner has lived locally and on the islands for nearly fifteen years so is very well connected with many dive shops and resorts on all islands, particularly Koh Tao where he still spends a lot of time to keep information up to date.

I have spent many hours here when going from Koh Tao to Bangkok, when waiting for the train. Good and relaxing place and you can even for a cheap price get a shower there

“Farang bar very friendly and welcoming proprieter, Ivor”
Reviewed October 18, 2012 via mobile

Arrived @ 8pm after long train journey very tired and hot. Ivor the owner was extremely informative and fun. Being novice backpackers it was great to hear his experiences and get advice on what and where to go. Being able to enjoy some recognisable food was a great relief but that's not knocking the Thia food as it is also amazing. If you're new to thailand then check out the Farang Bar
Happy traveling.
