Really cheap and great location...however really mucky. Bathroom mirror and sink held together with plastic bags. Stinky old blankets. Floor has questionable stains and looks like it has never been cleaned. Overall pretty bleak and disgusting.

Initial reactions early on in our trip had us searching for a cheap place to stay the night. After seeing a sign advertising 250 Baht per night with free Wifi and cheap breakfast, we thought we would book in.

Rooms are very basic. A hard double bed in a small square room with what looks to be like clean sheets and a fan is about it for the main room. The ensuite has a shower with a heater box on the wall that doesn't work, and the toilet is flushed by throwing bowls of water down it... Wear your thongs in the bathroom, it's not a pretty place.

Free WiFi is a plus, as well as cheap breakfast but after the state of the whole place we decided to find breakfast somewhere else. Although this is a place that looks like you should BYO padlocks. After hearing a few stories about other guesthouses in Chiang Mai having guests belongings dissapear we decided to padlock out bags as well as put our own lock on the door. Overkill - maybe, but better safe than sorry! There was noise all night outside from the ladyboy and other locals doing who knows what down stairs.

We paid 250 baht ($8.30 AUD) for both of us in a double room.

Although if you only need the room for 2 hours for some reason.... they do that too for 200 baht..... Lovely....


Do yourself a favor and keep walking. It's cheap, but I'm sure there is better for the same price.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are in the same area. Thin walls don't block out sound!
