Before we arrived we had no time to search for guest houses online. We only had our lonely planet to read during the bus journey. The Smile House was mentioned and regarding location and the review it seemed nice. We arrived there in the evening and it was raining so bad that we took the room, even though the room...

The guest house photos are staged...or old. The place is run down. Service is sporadic, no soap in the bathroom, no free water, no room cleaning unless you ask. The so called kids pool is a dirty little pond. The pool is quite nice but if you are small you need help to get out as there is no ladder....

My friend and I stayed here for one night, arriving at 10pm we thought for a place to sleep it would be fine, but we were wrong. Did not even attempt to use the shower, and you definitely needed to wear shoes in the bathroom. The bathroom was so damp and mouldy that you would get dripped on when using...

Down a alley, definitely not like the pictures. Could not use the pool. Bed was rock hard,like sleeping on the floor. Air was very cold. Room needs work. Bathroom is very run down. But water got warm fast. Found 4 dead bugs in room/ bathroom. If you are looking for extremely cheap it is ok.

Stayed here 4 nights while on a 3 week trip through Thailand. Started out paying 800 baht on our simple double bed AC room. No bells and whistles whatsoever, poor shower and sink drainage. The pool and common areas were lovely however. After talking to other guests we found out there where variations on the simple "double bed AC room"...

Swimming pool and main building are very good, and location is awesome. My room and linen were clean , a/c worked OK. The shared bathroom draining system could be better, they were always wet. And since wearing shoes is not allowed inside, I always felt uncomfortable to shower. Great backpacker atmosphere, very good wifi.

But the service is good, they cleaning our bathroom directly when we told them out problem, and it is pretty cheap. They are also animal friendly and you can see cats and dog walking...

Rooms shabby, showers not working and not fixed despite reporting, rubbish not emptied, no atmosphere, staff not exactly unfriendly but uninterested and not welcoming. But the Wi-Fi good and pretty cheap.
