What we say: 3.5 stars

Run by an affable Canadian-Thai couple with help from their adorable little girl, Red Ginger has three rooms above/ behind the phenomenal restaurant of the same name. With violet walls and a Bohemian feel, two small and basic double rooms are especially suited to solo travellers while a larger room upstairs is a good choice for groups. Both options come with hot water bathrooms and guests can choose between fan or air-con (they'll shut down the air if you don't want it). The owners are extremely friendly and flexible. Guests are free to use the restaurant's fridge, and they can lounge around in the ground-floor bar/restaurant with comfy sofas, maroon walls, dim lighting and hip modern art, all carefully pieced together to create a cosy atmosphere. This is the sort of place where you'll feel like lending a hand during the dinner rush, and kicking back with a few beers afterwards. Owner Roger told us that if backpackers arrive on a holiday weekend to find most cheap accommodation fully booked, he'll let them crash somewhere on the floor for next to nothing. If you don't stay here, make sure to stop by for the incredible ribs, pork tenderloin and lamb stew. Note that we were only able to get a very general price range as everything is flexible here.
