Stayed there twice within days apart. Agree with the other TA reviews, Mrs Lee is sociable, friendly, helpful and always makes sure you get to where you're going by arranging taxi/van transfers sometimes without you having the need to ask - especially when you're travelling in a group.
Mrs Lee doesn't live there anymore, like one TA review said, but she is there most parts of the day, leaving late at night after making sure there are fresh fruits and bread for breakfast the next day, cleaning the bathrooms and the rest of the guest house.
It's safe - the guesthouse has CCTV and you let yourself in with a key tag. If you're worried about your shoes (these are left outside the door) on the first floor, you can bring them into your room; just make sure you don't use them in the guest house. Bare feet allowed only.
There is filtered water available or bottled drinking water / other drinks for sale. There's a price list and she leaves the rest to honesty (there's a box where you drop your money in or take whatever change you require).
Location wise, there's a shopping mall within walking distance, but you still have to walk about 20-30 minutes to get into the centre of town and where all the nice food places are.
Only setback is that if your room is towards the side of the guest house, you can clearly hear karaoke till 2am (especially if you are on the first floor). Rooms on the second floor are much quieter but if you are a light sleeper, it's advisable to wear ear plugs.
