Its location on the banks of the Nam Khan is an anomaly in this price range and those wanting a spot on the river on a backpacker budget will find this difficult to beat. Rooms are basic and come with a saggy yet hard bed and hardly anything else – the hot water bathrooms are shared here. Some of the rooms have a nice outlook over the river and we'd recommend asking for one of these or else you might end up getting one of the darker ones with a poor aspect. Free WiFi is available, but quite sketchy in the rooms. Still, you can't really complain at this price point.
