We stayed in many budget hotels throughout our 4 week Thailand trip within a range of 800 - 1200 Baht, but the room at Rikka Inn was by far the worst. Usually we manage to get a good deal with walk ins but were charged 1150 Baht per night for a twin and their website is showing a rate of 1050. So if you plan to stay there than book before. Our superior twin was definitely not superior. The room smelled really mouldy and felt humid. We opened the windows and put the aircon on full blast and after a few hours the smell subsided and it was ok again - only to leave the room and come back at night to have the same issue again. The room was so so small, it felt claustrophobic. I'm a light sleeper and despite ear plugs could only manage 3-4 hours a night at best. Don't get me wrong, I'm aware it's Khao San Road. I don't mind street noise/music at all, slept through all of it in Haad Rin Nok actually, but the hotel is of a low quality build and the walls are paper thin. You hear your neighbours talk, cough or even drop something on the floor. The only air ventilation in the bathroom is an opening near the ceiling where you can hear the hallway. First time having a shower I heard voices I was shocked and didn't know where they were coming from, it sounds like someone is next to you. If you can hear them I guess they can hear you, too?? Not a pleasant thought. The people that stayed at the hotel had constant parties in their room and hallway, up to 8:15am in the morning. One night we came home at 2am and saw a teenager rolling around the hallway floor half naked. Pool was always busy we never got a chance to test it. People were smoking around it lots which put us off anyway. No drinks and food allowed up there, no pool bar. Pool closes at 9pm so not too bad like other hotels. Only positive was the staff. They were the first ones to not hassle you over the room deposit and didn't try to charge us things we never consumed. Check in and check out was hassle free and friendly. I wouldn't stay there again though.
