It must had been a misunderstanding with the staff...

Amazing service. Extremely understanding and even waived fees when unexpected things happened. I'm so impressed with this hostel. Very friendly and again I can't stress enough how understanding they are!

Found this after eating at the restaurant downstairs. The staff were fantastic and really helpful, kind and friendly. We were allowed to shower at the GH after our jungle trek, a couple of hours before our flight!

I stayed in central guesthouse for 3 nights. the place is very well situated, very near to Thapae gate. it is clean, with very polite staff. the bar-restaurant on the street level is also one of the best to have a classic thai food at a very reasonable price.
