P. California Inter Hostel

P. California Inter Hostel

Another great backpacker option

More on Phanom Rung

P.California is a newer backpacker establishment that gives Honey Inn some friendly competition.

Travelfish says:

The location is better -- in a quiet corner of the “old town” and within easy walking distance of the market and several eateries. Though similarly small and with hard spring beds, rooms are also a slight step up from Honey Inn’s thanks to more windows, some framed prints for a less utilitarian feel and clean bathrooms that are fully enclosed. Larger rooms even come with cheap sofas, tables and mini-fridges, and all rooms are equipped with tiny old TVs. While most rooms are set in a single-floor motel-style building on the other side of a lawn, the fan-cooled dorm room is located in an old wooden house that fronts the street. It was being renovated when we passed through so we couldn’t take a peek. Free WiFi works only in the rooms nearest to the small on-site cafe and hangout space. The owner speaks some English, offering free bicycles and renting out motorbikes. She’s friendly and certainly seems to care a lot about her guests, though she doesn’t have the experience of Honey Inn when it comes to guiding travellers to the ruins. Even so, this is a good option.
