Funky and comfy

What we say: 4 stars

This funky spot opened in 2012 and is run by a chilled out and welcoming young Thai couple. The old building that Hometel occupies was gutted and replaced with polished concrete walls and floors, which give the place an urban-industrial vibe -- but that's not to say it isn't comfortable. Well-kept rooms are outfitted with firm beds covered in fresh-smelling sheets, little tables, textural paintings with hot oranges, reds and yellows and wrap-around balconies. The room we checked out had two doors that both open on to the balcony but no actual windows, making it a bit dark with the doors closed. All rooms are air-con and come with free WiFi along with large modern hot water bathrooms. We like the rooms, but the real selling point here is the atmosphere. A ground floor cafe sells fresh coffee and excellent fruit juices and is a good spot to chat with other travellers and the cool staff. Bicycles are available for free to guests, but you won't need them to get to Maharaj market directly across the street.
