What a homestay should feel like

What we say: 4 stars

Located next door to Rhuen Khun Yai Chuea, this homestay offers similar amenities and atmosphere but smaller rooms and no river views. Rooms do have plenty of windows and choice of air-con or fan to go with basic mat-style beds on the floor and shared cold-water bathrooms. If you don't mind the tighter confines and more homely atmosphere, this is a good spot to save some money, and the older woman who runs the homestay along with her very friendly cat adds to the charm. She might not speak much English, but she'll have a home-cooked meal waiting for you after the monks collect their food on alms round at dawn. There's no WiFi here, but there is a communal kitchen area with a fridge and a few tables beside the canal for chilling out. Like Rhuen Khun Yai Chuea, this is not a great option for those who aren't early risers. There's no English sign -- take the gate on the left just before the entrance to Rhuen Khun Yai and give a shout if no one's around out front.
