Great budget deal
Actually run by the people who set up Julie GH, this is a relatively new addition in the increasingly busy south end of Ratchapakinai Road and a very welcome one at that.
Diva is pleasantly decorated, has a great little cafe/common area and friendly, helpful service. They've made a big effort to brighten up some fairly small and simple rooms and on the whole been very successful. It does look like they used every colour shade in their paint job and some colour combinations work better than others but it's fun and we bet they had fun doing it too. (We're not sure about the room with the lime green and orange bathroom but ...) Every room has ensuite bathroom. Plenty of decent Thai and Western faves are offered in the cafe and WiFi is free. They also have their own in-house licensed tour operator (shared with Julie GH) which is convenient. Rates stay the same year round. If we were only going to mention one budget range guesthouse it would probably be this one!
