Saymonkhoune Guesthouse is a good pick for backpackers and it would be the best budget pick for Paksan if BK Guesthouse wasn’t just so darn friendly and homey.

Still, the rooms here are clean and bright, more spacious and modern than BK. There’s high ceilings, big windows, tile floor, box TV and a few bits of furniture. The bathroom is what sets this place apart and it will be better suited for large folk than BK. The hot water shower has its own separate area.

The lobby has drinking water and hot water with tea/coffee that guests can help themselves to. The owner also speaks some English. Saymongkhoune is located west of the market, one road up from Route 13. It’s a few hundred metres closer to the bus station than BK — small signs helpfully guide the way along Route 13 from the market. BK is still our top pick because of the lush garden, patio and overall cosier feel (Saymongkhoune is all tile and concrete), but if BK is full or you need a bigger room, Saymonkhoune is a suitable alternative.
