Cheap and a little run down

The owners of Bamboo Paradise have been busy adding new bungalows to their patch of riverside property, and standards here have gone way up which gives you some idea of what the rooms used to be like.
Spacious new bungalows have double beds, fans and individual balconies with rattan lounge chairs. The biggest difference is the new bathrooms with hot water showers and Western-style toilets. Even though new rooms have been built in recent years, it still hasn't kept pace with newcomers such as Nam Houn. It feels a little run down compared to these and it's only 10,000 kip cheaper. Still, if your budget is extremely low and you must have a bungalow, you might consider Bamboo Paradise. A restaurant is on site and laundry service available.
