Only if it's too cold to kip at the temple

The Star Inn wins the award for the most atrocious excuse for a hotel in north-western Thailand.
Very obviously a short time establishment, the management are surprisingly friendly and welcoming to backpackers. Unfortunately if you have even the most modest of standards then this place will fail miserably to reach them. The rooms are dingy and cell like, with old bed linens and a musky smell which would be more at home in a Moroccan camel house. The highlight of the rooms is that they have a sofa, but that's it.
