Photo of Ganesha Family Guesthouse
This is a small guesthouse with six rooms and two dorms, so availability may be an issue during high season. It’s a well-equipped and run little guesthouse, with a cafe and eating area overlooking Street 1.5, all the usual tour and travel info and services, bicycle and motorbike rental, a pool table, WiFi, plans for a movie room and even a craft shop on the Street 2 side. The vibe at the cafe felt very positive every time we dropped in. All rooms are clean, well finished with wood panelled walls and come with mosquito nets and ensuite bathrooms. Larger ones have balconies. The five-bed, smaller dorm room can be booked as a family room. All the dorm beds have lights and sockets nearby (some are shared with the neighbouring bed), and they have ample lockers for your gear. The staff here were very helpful and friendly when we stopped by.
