Photo of Tata Homestay
It’s a ramshackle affair, with a cluttered front yard, where the friendly elderly owners seemed to be knocking up some noodles and coffees for passers-by when we stopped by. While not exactly a professional guesthouse set up, accommodation is in individual rooms, so you’re not staying homestay-style with the family either. Rooms are basic – just a bed and fan, but clean enough. Three of the four rooms are tiny, with just room for single beds. The fourth is larger and suitable for two, but then the price doubles.

If you like this sort of arrangement, are a single traveller and are on a very tight budget, then this is a good choice. If you’re travelling with a friend and need a minimum amount of space, or travelling with a partner and need a minimum amount of privacy, it’s probably better to spend another 100 baht or so and go elsewhere. The location is convenient too, with the riverfront a five-minute walk to the east and the bus stop, market, museum and Chedi Luang all within a five-minute radius as well.
