            Possibly the friendliest staff in Southeast Asia. Location is prime, right on the riverfront, tons of dining options, 10 minutes from the night market and all the major Wats and royal palace. Only drawback was they had a killer shower stall, like a stall adjacent to the toilet with an overhead spout, but no hot water

            Big rooms

            Stayed in the penthouse with rooftop access. Big room for 4 and more than enough for 2. Many tv channels to keep us occupied. Location is right between night market and national muesum, 5-10 min walk to both direction. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not included but worth the price. Cons include water heaterdid not work, cobwebs in many areas of the room and musty smell of the pillow.

            Close to the river

            I stayed only one night but in that short time found the staff to be helpful, helping me with recharging my sim card and booking me a bus, which then had to be rebooked after I had left when I had to change my plans. YatWilliam even reconfirmed the bus for me when I wasn't staying there anymore. The room was clean and had a nice feel to it. I was in the balcony room which had a bath, handy although I didn't use it. The only down side of that room would be the light outside the window but it was turned off by about 11pm. I also ate lunch here which was pretty good too.

            Upon extending my stay I had to move to a superior room (as my room has been booked already) which was actually worse than the basic one (despite having a balcony). Cold water in the shower, several appliances not working (lights, actually no top lights in the room, only small bed lamp), noisy AC.

            This place is great value, great location and the owner and staff are really nice to deal with. Sure the rooms are not elegant but what do you expect for $15 or so a night. My room had no window and others complained of this - well this is a very noisy and busy area at night but because I had no window, my room was extremely quiet and dark - I was even able to sleep in for the first time in ages. The only negative remarks I agree with are that the mattress was lumpy and the hot water could have been hotter (it was ok though). But when staying in budget guest house I think it's reasonable to expect a few things to be less than perfect. As others have mentioned, the owner is a really decent guy and very helpful. His staff are also very friendly. For me this is far more important than a few things being less than perfect. One last thing - the restaurant downstairs is worth a visit. I stayed 4 nights and had dinner there twice and breakfast once. Food is very good. I will be back in PP next year and I will definitely check this place out again.
