Almost all staff didn't speak any English which made it hard to plan activities or just ask basic questions.


Although it was lovely it was a bit overpriced


Lady who owns is confused about how to charge for single rooms. You will find out when you get there. Also lots of that are not on hostel world if you take the time to look.

Arrived to no receptionist and were put in the wrong room - when the owner arrived we were asked to pay more even though it was their mistake. There was a mistake with our bus (tour operator booked am instead of pm) and we awoke to being screeched at for being late. Was expensive for what it was, only plus side is rooms are relatively comfortable.


Location is ideal for exploring the small town of Kanchanaburi. We suggest hiring bikes from the friendly lady next to the hostel.


Done exactly what it said on the tin! Cheap guesthouse which a basic but clean room. The lady at the desk was helpful when needed and booking outbound trip. Room's are basic, double bed with TV, shower. Left our stuff in the room and felt safe. Walking distance to the Bridge and plenty of bars and food places near by. Good value for money.
