What we say: 3.5 stars

Pathoumphone is an old budget guesthouse in an area renowned for upmarket options. Its location on the banks of the Nam Khan is an anomaly in this price range and those wanting a spot on the river on a backpacker budget will find this difficult to beat. Rooms are basic and come with a saggy yet hard bed and hardly anything else – the hot water bathrooms are shared here. Some of the rooms have a nice outlook over the river and we'd recommend asking for one of these or else you might end up getting one of the darker ones with a poor aspect. Free WiFi is available, but quite sketchy in the rooms. Still, you can't really complain at this price point.
