Wily gathering place
Smack in the middle of busy Dechanuchit Road, this long-standing guesthouse is set in an old beige concrete building that tells you straight away this is no upscale hotel.
On the ground floor, the well-worn billiards table and bar tell you that this is also not the place for those who go to bed early. But for backpackers seeking a fun atmosphere to go with their cheap beer and bed, All Nations still delivers. While all of the rooms have their share of scuffmarks on the walls and linens that have seen better days, we found them adequate for low-budget travellers. Tiny fan-cooled singles have a shower (with curtain) on the balcony, but using the toilet requires heading down the narrow stairs and walking right past the bar to a closet-sized bathroom that also services all of the bar/restaurant customers. Air-con rooms are considerably bigger and bag you a private hot-water bathroom, with the priciest also equipped with fridges and safes. All rooms -- even those cheapies -- have balconies, TVs and soft beds. Owner Pud now also runs an almost identical second location called All Nations 55 Guesthouse in a slightly quieter location on Soi 55. Also on Soi 55 is Aree’s House, which is a similar choice.
