After reading the good reviews on T.A we decided to check this place out.
The main enterance to this place seems to be completely deserted and empty we were even unsure ourselves if it was even still being used as a guesthouse. Barely even a table in the huge lobby. We were shown a room with bathroom for 300 thb which we took as we knew there was little else around. But looking back I know you can get a lot more and have a much nicer experience for less money.
The room fit a large double bed with not much space to spare and a tiny shelf on the wall - no where really to put anything except on the floor. The bathroom was OK but could have been cleaner - no soap or toilet paper provided!!
The room was fairly clean but I did notice footprints on the wall?
As soon as the money was handed over and paper signed that seemed to be the end of our service! Finding someone in the deserted lobby to ask for the password for the wifi was virtually impossible we weren't sure who worked there and who didn't. When a man finally did appear he rudely told me the numbers and then walked away so fast that when it didn't work I was left there with nothing.
The one good thing about the place was the outdoor area / bar - which we were told opened at 6pm. When we arrived back to the hostel at 7pm and there was no sign of it opening we went and got a couple beers from a shop down the road and bought them back to sit outside. When the bar finally did open they ignored us completely and only spoke to us to get the money at the end of the night.
So overall this was not a good experience at all. Maybe they were havin an off day.... But we found them to be one minute fairly OK and the next very rude and unhelpful.
We came to the conclusion that possibly the people who normally ran this place and deserve the good reviews were either away or had left completely. Who knows, whatever the reason we were given no explanation whatsoever. Based on our experience here I would not recommend this place at all.. Keep walking down the road you will find much better service and feel way more welcome!!
