The room was mostly clean and ok if you are a budget traveller. The water that came from the tap was brown, so I didn't wash my teeth with it, but showered normally.

I came here today late afternoon without any reservation and it was the second guesthouse I tried. The first one was BT1200 + very unfriendly staff/owner. The owner of The Best Guesthouse is very friendly. I can just confirm recent comments.

“No tip for a room, but opposite this guesthouse is a local police station, where they have couple of little bit old, but working fitness machines & irons if you are interested in work out for free. The mornings & evening only because of heat, but there is a roof and the venue is in the shadow)”
