Ben Guesthouse is an absolute gem for budget-savvy travelers, and it ticks all the boxes: it's spotless, in a good location, and has real personality. Private rooms with hot shower bathrooms (almost always private) are spread across a multi-floor, teak wood house resplendent with carvings and period-piece art. For those looking to save a lot, there are affordable fan-cooled rooms; those who can splash out choose suites with air-con (there are loads of options in between). Enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool or rent a motorbike on-site for exploration around town, which is 1.2km away.
