Budget Guesthouse

Our rating:

This featureless guesthouse occupies a large concrete building down the alley next to Khao San Centre, one of the liveliest bars around.

You’ll no doubt hear the blaring music at night, though an air-con room in the back corner should be quiet enough for most. If you’re looking to party anyway, this is an adequate choice for a well-kept room with plenty of shared hot-water bathrooms on all floors. Expect fans or air-con on purple walls, tile floors and hard beds with cheapo sheets. Windows look across the alley at another building, though a towering tree that somehow survived here provides a glimpse of green. Air-con rooms are especially reasonable value. The goofy guy at reception told us that the guesthouse has no phone (walk-ins only) and gave us keys to go check out rooms on our own -- not exactly crack security so leave valuables unattended at your own risk. Neighbouring Mom Guesthouse is a similar choice that will be noisier, with windows only facing a hallway and a strong smell of cigarette smoke during our last visit. If you want something cheaper and could care less about the late-night noise, head over to Lek Guesthouse.
