Jolly Frog Backpackers

The long-running Jolly Frog is an old backpacker favourite, and if you stay here you're likely to mingle with some ageing regulars.

Photo of Jolly Frog Backpackers Aside from the rock-bottom prices that haven't seen an increase in years, it's a little difficult to see what keeps them all streaming back. Staff are notoriously rude, lazy and disorganised, and while the spacious, hammock-strewn lawn with river views is indeed inviting, the rooms are much less so. They're dark, damp, have grimy bathrooms and fans or air-con that might work, might not. The folks who previously ran the Jolly Frog's once great restaurant have moved on, opening Mangosteen Restaurant nearby. They took their extensive secondhand book collection with them but left the apathetic staff behind. if you have a problem with your room don't expect anyone to care. This is a good place to meet other backpackers and we guess you can't expect phenomenal service with a room that costs under 100 baht, but on the whole we wouldn't recommend it.
