I think it's unfair to rate down a place solely because it offers no luxury. Bamboo house is very well located and has a superb setting right on the water. The room we had - family raft was simple but clean and excellent location. Shared toilet was a bit inconvenient but hey, you can't have it all.
No soap or blankets are provided, just a towel to use as blanket and some bed covers. There are four matresses on the floor, side by side, leaving little space for walking. No aircon, just fans.
The raft moves when boats pass by. The river Kway bridge is minutes walk away. I recommend to visit and go away as the place is swarming with tourists and prices and quality reflect that. There are boat tours which cost 800 baht bookable at the hotel and take you around the river for one hour, quite pleasant.
There are better restaurants south of the river, where local go but it's not walking distance.
As for the guest house, there is a nice garden and the restaurant is not on the river, but by the garden. We didn't eat there so cannot comment.
