Originally founded by a Dutch expat, the four-storey concrete guesthouse was taken over by a Thai woman who we found friendly and helpful once she noticed us lingering in the sparsely furnished common room. She led us upstairs to show off spacious rooms with choice of fan or air-con and bright paint jobs accentuating the high ceilings and tile floors.

Clean, cheerful and cheap.

Some rooms come with street-view balconies and basic cold-water bathrooms, while darker editions at the back of the building bag you hot water for the same price. Mattresses are thick and wall-mounted LCD TVs are unexpected, though you won’t find desks or other furnishings. The rooms appeared clean and exude cheerfulness, even if decoration is lacking.

The guesthouse offers free WiFi and laundry service, but you’ll have to take a walk to Soi Sri Suda or the fresh market area for food.

A couple of other small and cheap options on the same lane include Songkhla Guesthouse, which has slightly less expensive rooms in an old wooden house. You could also take a 10-minute walk northeast, crossing Ramwithi Road, to find bigger rooms for a bit more cash at Bo Yang Guesthouse on Chaiya Road.
