We stayed at Smile Guesthouse for one night after checking out a few other guest houses on the same street. It was getting late and we ended up choosing this place for the price,location and free wifi.
We stayed in the last room of the garden at the back. Had trouble getting wifi reception at first but the staff was really helpful to restart the router and made it work. Unfortunately there was a bad moldy smell in the bathroom and the room in general wasn't very clean. We saw marks and stains on the walls and weren't sure if the bed sheets were clean since the pillows smelled weird. We slept in our own silk liners and used our own pillow cases but it wouldn't cover the smell. When we went to bed around midnight there was still a lot of noise behind the guesthouse (probably coming from other guest houses of bars). We knew the area could be noisy so we couldn't complain too much about that.
The next morning we had breakfast at Smile and the staff was really nice and packed our food in boxes when we realized our transport was leaving. Overall I would say that for 8$ you could get a better room but if its only for a short stay and you can cope with noise and smells, it could be ok.More
