What we say: 3 stars

The very long-running Sawatdee Guesthouse (established way back in 1980), Sawatdee Guest House continues to be a popular choice amongst budget travellers and backpackers. Clambering up and down its steep stairs feels like visiting a museum exhibit dedicated to early backpacking in Thailand. A stylish retro, water cooler, now used to shelve Buddhas and icons, lies dusty and forgotten in the corridor. Room 1 boasts a fascinating black and white picture which appears to show early backpackers, circa the 1950s, bedding down in a share dorm. These little quirks and the friendly staff somehow combine to give this place a peculiar charm. The rooms are extremely basic affairs and from some it is a bit of a stroll to the shared facilities, but if you can handle its lack of modern polish, for the money this is reasonable value.
