The guesthouse is located on top of the lake on stilts and provides a truly unique experience. Rooms are basic with saggy spring mattresses, mosquito nets, hot water bathrooms with bucket flush Western toilets and tiny windows from which to see the lake from. It’s a 300-metre walk from the bus station and is a good choice for those on a tight budget or looking for something a little different from the norm. Locals in town may refer to it as the Chinese hotel.
