P Guest House

Cheap fan caves in the Wild West

What we say: 4 stars

One of the longer-running guesthouses in town, P attracts a loyal clientele and has become the go-to choice for many backpackers, thanks to cheap fan rooms with shared cold water bathrooms. The guesthouse is built around a spacious and shady lawn with unmatched views of the lake and the Mon village on the other side. Large air-con rooms are also available, and while these are large and boast excellent views through big glass windows, they feel a bit cave-like and musty -- you'll find better value elsewhere. Fan rooms are smaller and more basic but similarly designed with stone walls that lend a bit of a Flintstones feel. These are also rather cave-like but the prices are tough to beat. Unfortunately P no longer offers rooms priced between the 900 baht air-con and 250 baht fan editions. Along with the persistently cheap fan rooms, the reason P retains an 8/10 rating after our most recent visit is that they offer good value tours and the English-speaking staff are well-versed at providing foreigners a fun and comfortable stay. The restaurant doesn't have the best food in town but the views are second to none and it's a good place to chat with other travellers. WiFi is also available for free, and motorbikes, bicycles and canoes can be rented. The fan rooms fill up fast so book ahead to avoid disappointment.
