What we say: 4.5 stars

Top Banana Guesthouse is situated on the top floor of a three-storey building on the corner of Pasteur (Street 51) and Street 278. It's a bit tricky to find, requiring you to climb up several steep, metal staircases that wind around the building, adding to the feeling once you're up there that you're hidden away from the chaos of the city with a bunch of like-minded friendly travellers. With a shaded and breezy rooftop terrace, this is a great place to escape the midday heat. The common area has a book-swap library with plenty of easy fiction reading material as well as several handy Southeast Asia guidebeooks, a computer, a fish tank, couches and a single hammock. There's also a TV with a DVD player, and if you turn left on the adjacent street 51, there's a shop selling DVDs for $1.50 each. Travelfish users rave about this being a top spot for meeting people and hanging out, and the staff here go all out to make this a top backpacker spot. The clean rooms, however, are basic, a bit cramped, and in need of a fresh coat of paint, The private air-con rooms look like they've been updated more recently and are more spacious. The location is handy to the Independence Monument and a bunch of restaurants. This is a fine, friendly alternative to the lake.
