Pretty much in the middle of Chi Phat village (which is long not round), Mongoose has two buildings of simple but comfortable bamboo built rooms, some of which are ensuite.
The airy (bamboo doesn’t meet up after all) rooms are set in a slightly rough and ready garden that stores a collection of very well-maintained bicycles that you can hire for $4 a day. The rooms are perfectly maintained as well, as are the bathrooms, which have Western toilets.
There is a small terrace for hanging out on, or on the other side of the road, Danatra Kitchen belongs to the same owners, and there you’ll find some of the best food in the village. There is also a small shop with toiletries, snacks and various useful odds and ends. The owners are very friendly, professional and speak excellent English. They seem to work tirelessly from day break to the day’s end. You could not find more helpful people if you tried.
