What we say: 3 stars

Affiliated with Sugar Cane 2 further up river, Sugar Cane 1 offers a more central location and greater number of rafthouse rooms. The rooms on land are a little smaller than the bungalows at Sugar Cane 2 but are similarly simple and comfortable. There are several different varieties of raft room: some with fan, others with air-con, and the better rooms have an outside seating area. Rooms are large and have big, soft beds and relatively clean bathrooms, though we have received reports of bed bugs in the cheaper fan rooms. The raft rooms are starting to show their age and have a definite lived in feel. Rooms with decks have bamboo chairs and are great places to relax with a cold drink. Rafts are all interconnected and walls are thin, so noise can be an issue at night both from other guests and floating discos. WiFi is free and an inviting open-air restaurant serves standard backpacker fare, if you can pry the staff away from their TV.
