One of the better choices in town

Formerly known as Villa Salika, Sarika Guesthouse is the first guesthouse you'll meet on the right as you make your way up the hill from the boat dock.
It's a big old white building with a mix of tiled and wooden-floored rooms which are pretty good for the price. Clean hot-water bathrooms, saggy spring beds and a couple of scraps of furniture all make an appearance and for most people it will be enough for a night and it's better than many others in town – though at this price point, we prefer Monesavanh Guesthouse. Some rooms are so big you could do cartwheels in them. As with other places, ask for a discount if it's not busy.
