I would recommend this guesthouse to backpackers staying at Mae Salong. The boss and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
The accomodation price is quite reasonable as well. Rooms with shared bathroom cost 50B per night each. Bungalows with TV and attached bathroom cost 200B per night each. The bathrooms have modern toilet facilities and hot shower.
The guesthouse is well located near the morning market and 7-11 convenience store.
The guesthouse has a small dining area that is a great place for beer and for meeting other backpackers.
The cosy bungalows are located in a quiet and cosy courtyard.
The original backpacker guest house in town is the Shin Sane, which is conveniently located right near the morning market. It is also conveniently located right in front of the Mosque, which negates the need for an alarm clock. (The morning call to prayer was pretty loud down the street where I stayed, so I am sure that it is booming up here...)
You can stay here cheap, and the staff is more than willing to help you out with excursions out into the wilderness...
For old guys like me who like a little more comfort, head down the street aways to a place called the Central Hill Hotel. (the town is built on a series of hill tops.) Can't complain about the accomodations there at all, cheap, clean, and friendly.
If you stay here, tell them you know Ken, it might garner you a discount as I am kind of sort of related to the proprietors of this fine establishment...
