Sythane Guesthouse

Basic, but extremely cheap

What we say: 4.5 stars

This basic place just across from Deen's Indian restaurant and next to Mekara Lao is an unbelievable find. How a guesthouse can be this cheap and still offer hot water showers and Western toilets we don't know. But if you're tight for money and just swinging through town for a night en route to somewhere else, this is a good choice. It's a bare bones kind of place on the main road which does get a bit of noise from passing traffic. Shunning the bungalow trend, this two-storey concrete block houses a bunch of rooms with rattan-covered concrete floors, hard beds with sheets that smell musty and are of questionable cleanliness, mosquito nets and hot water bathrooms with bucket flush Western toilets. It's basic, but the price is unbeatable. An absolute steal.
