As cheap as you'll find
These days you don't find too many guesthouses in this price range and those you do are on their last legs.
There's a bit of life left in this guesthouse yet. The riverside bungalows are very basic with rattan walls, grass roofs, a simple bed with mosquito net and a fan. The cold water bathrooms are shared around the back. The restaurant area is a nice little spot to hang out if you don't feel like staying in your bungalow all day. A great little budget spot well away from the crowds and about two kilometres south of the northern tip. It's not quite like the $1 bungalows of years gone by, but it's as close as you'll get.
