Backpacker's best option
Lakeside T: (097) 809 7036
Brought to you by the same team behind the Balcony Guesthouse in Kratie, this is easily the best backpacker joint in Banlung.
The rooms make the best of what appears to be a well-aged building, but they're pretty clean and there are plenty of them. As with the Kratie property, there is an upstairs veranda (you can just squizz a view of the lake) and also a ground floor restaurant and bar with a pool table. The parking area also has a couple of hammocks slung around. Staff are cheery and very helpful. Free bicycles and free WiFi further sweeten the deal. If you're on a budget and don't need any frills, look no further.
