Thailand’s worst hostel room

1 Sep

We arrived in Chiang Rai 2 days ago and thought we’d check out the Lonely Planet’s ‘Top Pick’ hostel- The Easy House. They only had one room left. This is why we decided not to stay:

– The bed consisted of 3 old stained mattresses (looked like they were found in a skip), diping dramatically in the middle so your feet were raised once lying on it.

– There were huge holes in the sheets.

– Insects were crawling on the bed.

– There were actual holes in the roof. And it still rains in the night.

– The windows were boarded up.

– There was no lock on the door.

– There was a gap in the blinds covering the window from next door, so when the people from next door opened their cupboard, they’d be able to peek through into our room.

– The disgusting painting hung up wonkily on the wall only succeeded in making the room more comical.

After a 15 minute walk up the road we found a lovely hostel for an even cheaper price.

    Sounds as if you need to give the Lonely Planet book some updated advice on where not to go!!
