The orchard house is a very cheap place to stay . Rooms are very simple, with fan but no air conditioning. It was quite noisy because it's located close to the street. The host was nice and helpful ( booked our ferry tickets , ordered taxis and recommended a good motorbike rental). If you look for a low budget place...

And there was no cleaning service while we stayed...

The place is simple, very quiet, well located (like 20min cab/motor bike ride from the main party beach!), clean (not spotless, but very ok!)..!!! Besides all that, the keeper was the nicest lady ever!!!! Gave us information and helped us with EVERYTHING we needed! And always with a smile in her face. Definitely recommend!!
