Sivarin Guest House

Our rating:

Tucked towards the end of Samsen Soi 3 in a leafy area near the river and a 10-minute walk from Khao San Road, the Sivarin is a charming little spot with clean rooms and a helpful owner.

The two-floor concrete building doesn’t look like much from outside, but rooms are brighter than you’d expect thanks to several windows and pink-and-white decor that reminded us of candy canes. The large air-con room that we checked out had polished concrete floors, a comfortable bed, small table and large balcony facing a tree. We found it a relaxing little hideaway in a city without much greenery. Some rooms come with fans and others with air-con, but all rely on shared hot-water bathrooms that are just outside the rooms. The facilities are limited, so you may need to wait for other guests to finish up before you can shower. Rooms come in a few different sizes but prices are the same, so you might ask to see a few. Sivarin also offers a clean four-bed mixed dorm with private locker and reading lamp for each bunk. There’s a computer station for guests, and simple breakfasts are complimentary. Located directly behind Sivarin (you have to walk through Sivarin to reach it), the associated Khaosan Baan Thai Guesthouse is very similar.
