Formerly known as Villa Salika, Sarika Guesthouse is the first guesthouse you'll meet on the right as you make your way up the hill from the boat dock.

It's a big old white building with a mix of tiled and wooden-floored rooms which are pretty good for the price. Clean hot-water bathrooms, saggy spring beds and a couple of scraps of furniture all make an appearance and for most people it will be enough for a night and it's better than many others in town – though at this price point, we prefer Monesavanh Guesthouse
. Some rooms are so big you could do cartwheels in them. As with other places, ask for a discount if it's not busy.
