Stayed for one night to see River Kwai. Well situated around Kanchan, 15 min walk from railway station. Staff were helpful on arrival, room clean, but basic and comfortable. Good location for restaurants and bars. Enjoyed the stay.


Pretty much get what you pay for, it's all clean and tidy, although we stayed for 6 nights and didn't get our sheets changed once due to some miscommunication with the staff my biggest issue was that it was a handheld shower that was really award to use and was unexpected as it hadn't been mentioned. the staff where friendly but didn't speak much English. The location is really good, and there's a fab bar called Friends Bar down the road on the right!


Read some comments here about, staff not been friendly. This is so not true!! If you are positive, and friendly yourself, they open up and really do there best!! The place can use some maintenance, but don't complain it's cheap! Don't like it, stop backpacking and f*** off to a resort!


Basic but good stay. The only complaint is that there is a key deposit, and if you forget to ask for it, they won't return it! We forgot and lost the deposit.


Stayed in a private room. The bed was okay, not great and there weren't many outlets. Only stayed one night while passing through. Was quaint and quiet but not much of a hostel/backpackers atmosphere.
