Reviewed 21 November 2016

Nothing bad about this place, it's definitely on the cheap side and a bit run-down, also when I was there, there wasn't much of a social or fun atmosphere at all, it was quite depressing to hang around. However, the staff are as helpful as they can be given their limited English, and the rooms are adequate. As one of the cheapest places and placed quite conveniently near the night market and river, you get what you pay for.

Beware, there are many dogs on the roads nearby at night, which are very dark adn creepy (though less than a five minute walk to the bustling night market, and a 10 minute walk to the tourist strip) and some are aggressive. We didn't have any serious issues but you might be less lucky, especially if you're alone. If you've rented a scooter, this won't be a problem.

After the hustle and bustle of Bangkok this place is a welcome retreat set on the banks of the river Kwai it's quiet but not too far from local amineties. It's a five min walk from the station past the war cemetery. Close to the local restaurants and 7/11. I opted for the double bungalow on the river front 950baht a night sounds pricey but to be honest the view is worth that alone. Room came with double bed. Good air con. Fridge and tv. Wifi is brilliant. Decor is a bit shabby but it's only atheistics. The owners are friendly and welcoming. Only issue for anyone staying in the riverside bungalows are the steep steps down so if you have any kind of mobility problems it is near impossible to transverse.

It was one of those low season nights, when we thought nothing is going to happen tonight.
Then we discovered this awesome place. The housekeeper, sugar, knows how to create an lovely atmosphere between party and chill. If I ever come to kanchanaburi again, I know where to have a good night :)

Nice, hidden guesthouse with clean bungalows for low price. Staff is really friendly. Relaxed atmosphere directly at the river with comfortable seats to hangout, including awesome view of sunrise/sunset.

Heard from someone that they were not happy with the bar. There is no bar. The owner has a bar in town. The rooms were good value and thew staff were friendly. We stayed for 1 month and will go back this year in April. Fantastic views of the gills and river. You get what you pay for here.
