The clued-in owner here knows exactly what backpackers want, making Jollyboys popular for good reason. From its friendly staff, social bar and restaurant to the sunken reading lounge and sparkling pool, it's a great place to hang out. Dorms and bathrooms are spotless (with a flashpacker option, too), while the private rooms comprise A-frame garden cottages or very comfortable rooms with air-con and attached bathroom.

It's one of the best sources for tourist information, and a reliable spot to book your activities. Bikes are also for rent for US$5/10 per half/full day. They have a lot of eco credentials too with solar power, refillable water and recycling, while the Canadian owner, Kim, has a degree in responsible tourism.

It has its more laidback Jollyboys Camp guesthouse nearby, well suited for couples and families.
