The main reason people come to Sedone River Guesthouse is for the cheap fan rooms dotted around the property.
The rooms come with cheap beds topped with cheap sheets, cold water bathrooms and bucket-flush Western toilets – nothing else. There is an untidy terrace that in days gone by was a dream, but we were underwhelmed at how unkempt it looked. They just need to spend a bit of money on some nice tables and chairs and clean up the river bank below and it would indeed be THE spot for an afternoon beer – at the moment it's not. For 50,000 kip you can't really complain, though and as nearly everyone who stays here is a fellow backpacker, you're likely to meet other likeminded travellers.
