We, family and friends, had booked into this hotel which is very convenient to the railway station and advertised itself as "recently renovated". Lobby was fine and the reception staff very friendly. As we exited the lift, however a threadbare, holed carpet was a surprise and the room that we were offered was awful. We went back to reception and said that there was no way we could stay there and offered to pay for one night - we had booked for four. The receptionist was very nice about it and said she would have to call her boss. She did so, and returned with a message that as we were so disappointed he would not even let us pay for one night, so we left with nothing to pay. Where else but Thailand would that happen?
The staff were very pleasant; we had a (very poor but served with a smile) coffee in the restaurant while waiting; the rooms were clean but very basic; there was free wifi.
We don't travel 5* but we are a bit old for back-packing.
This is clearly a back-packers' hotel and is very handy for trains and not too far from the Night Market area as well as being incredibly cheap.More
