A great backpacker choice

Nice and quiet.
I recently spent the four nights in the Ivy and for the $7 paid per night, the room was just right. ...

What we say: 4 stars

The Ivy Guesthouse and Bar II is actually the only remaining Ivy as its namesake, beside Old Market, has closed. When we visited, two things struck us -- the lovely aroma of whatever was being cooked in the kitchen, and the laid-back friendly vibe, which we've heard former guests rave about again and again. Set in a two-storey house, you're only a five-minute walk from the Old Market area. Rooms are well-sized and clean, though they can be a little noisy around 04:00 when other guests' alarms go off. Downstairs rooms can be a little mildewy during the rainy season. Overall the whole place has a homey feel to it. Out front there is a pool table, a pleasant restaurant and a lay-about area, with comfortable reclining chairs, all under a rich, green ivy covering. The restaurant has a very good reputation for all its food, and is regularly frequented by expats in the know who come especially for the extensive vegetarian options. It is one of the only guesthouses that expats do visit because of the quality of the food. It's always happy hour here, meaning beers are cold and cheap all day, every day. The chalkboard behind the bar advertises nightly dinner specials. An upstairs terrace has more lazy chairs, a hammock, a rather exhausted looking weights set, and a selection of books and magazines. Very friendly staff. A very good, congenial, backpacker orientated spot. Friday night is $1 tapas night, definitely worth a trip, whether you're staying or not. Recommended.
