Kiwi Orchid Guest House
Who said bus stations were boring?
Next to Ranong's bus station, Phetkasem Rd, Ranong T: (077) 832 812
The Kiwi Orchid's name seems to suggest it's in a picturesque, tropical environment, but actually it sits right behind the Ranong bus station.
The place has something of a youth hostel vibe with a basic restaurant that's good for chatting with other travellers, an internet café, and an on-site travel company that helps with island trips and motrbike rentals. Fan rooms are very basic and on the grimy side but beds are soft and comfy. The two shared bathrooms are dirty with broken shelves and more than a few spiders. Overall the Kiwi's atmosphere is a little gloomy, and the whole place has a thrown together kind of feel to it, so don't expect any tasteful décor or fine furnishings. Although its atmosphere leaves something to be desired, the Kiwi is still a solid choice for the true old school budget traveller or anyone who is dead tired after their bus ride and simply needs a bed.
