Cheap and not so cheerful
What we say:
One of the guesthouses furthest away from the dock -- a five-minute walk up the hill -- Donevilasak Guesthouse is a budget option with two different price categories. Those on a tight budget can look forward to the depressing wooden shoebox rooms resembling a shack that has a bed, a single fluorescent bulb – and nothing else. The bare wood walls mean there's no insulation from your neighbours or outside noise. The bathrooms in this category of room are shared among guests down the hallway and they have seen better days. For this price you can't expect much and Donevilasak duly meets those expectations. The more expensive rooms are just okay, but they need fresh paint and could be a bit cleaner with the floors slightly grimy and some of the bathrooms being mouldy. In comparison, Dockhoun Guesthouse's rooms with private bathrooms are cheaper and nicer. This is a place for those travelling really cheaply and judging by the number who stay here, there must be quite a few, but we think you should try other guesthouses first.
