What we say: 3.5 stars

It looks like a tiny pace from the street front, but the backpacker-friendly Boworn BB goes back and back and up and up and is full of rooms above your standard Khao San Rd fare — at not unreasonable rates. Rooms are basic, thin mattresses and metal, creaky bed frames, but the bathrooms are clean and well loved. There's two, small downstairs common areas — one by reception, the other back amongst the accommodation. The former is more the place to hang out in, with walls adorned by old lps and free coffee on tap — the rear room is dominated by a giant TV, with major football game times on the board beside it, so less for swapping traveller's tales. The old lady who runs here is a particularly friendly character who waved her finger knowingly at us declaring she knew we'd be back . Accommodation is no frills, but if you're looking for a clean, safe, backpackerish place, off the main Khao San strip (5-10 minutes walk away) then this is a good option — but go for a room at the rear to escape the traffic racket. Their cheapest fan-cooled rooms are overpriced.
