I've stayed in budget hotels in Thailand, China, and Cambodia, and this is the best budget hotel that I've stayed in. This was a school group, and we had single, double, triple, and quad rooms. My single room had a double bed (excellent mattress: like memory foam, that was an amazing surprise), air conditioning, older 13" TV (worked fine) with local cable TV including CNN and about 35 other channels. The room was very clean: shiny, ceramic tile floor. All our rooms (group rate) were very reasonable; under $20.
Bathroom has on-demand heater: took a bit to figure out to press the button which turns on the shower and then the heater comes on for hot water. Like many Asian bathrooms, the whole bathroom gets wet, so wear the (provided) slippers.
Location is about 12 minutes walk from the Night market, or 15 minutes from the old town market (or take a Tuk Tuk for a couple dollars). Seem quite secure, and the (family-owned) staff was very friendly and helpful. Restaurant was very good: $2.50. Didn't eat other meals there.
