Rooms in the classic backpacker guesthouse stretch back from the road and stay quiet after dark. We first checked out an air-con room with cement walls painted powder blue along with a high ceiling and several screened windows. Apart from some scuffmarks it appeared clean and smelled fresh, and we were impressed by the inclusion of a TV, fridge and spacious hot-water wet bathroom, all for less than 500 baht. Further back, a fan room lacked the extras but was also spacious, with private hot-water bathroom, firm bed and portable fan in addition to ceiling fan.

WiFi is available and tables on the front deck attract travellers after dark. While the family staffers can cook basic meals, many guests pop next door to Sunny Side Up for great coffee and baguettes. We also liked the location, which is central but slightly removed from the traffic and bars found down on Rueangrat. There you’ll find another solid option for backpackers in Dahla House, which has smaller fan and air-con rooms set in multi-coloured bungalows that fetch slightly higher prices than Palmy.

Before you head to Rueangrat Road for dinner, you may want to take Travelfish member corihiggins’ advice and eat at the Japanese restaurant next door to Palmy.
