Incredibly helpful owner and the moat amazing guests Dec 28, 2012
I arrived at Cheap Charlies with very little cash and my usual smile wasn't easy to come by. My Iphone, wallet, bank cards and smokes now belonged to knife bearing, English scoundrel and I was desperate for help.

Enter stage right... Gregg, the owner of Cheap Charlie's. He spends hours searching the net, making & receiving calls for me and going well out of his way to help. I stay three nights with the promise of IOU for accommodation, use his guitar in the evenings to perform songs at his bar for beer :) and in the process met people that I travelled with and now consider good friends.

Cheap Charlie's has a restaurant, bar, roof top area to hang out, reception with tour bookings, as well as single, double and dormitory style rooms. It is mostly aimed at backpackers, however you will get a range of different people in the front bar due to the friendly hospitality. It is roughly 10-15 mins walk to the beach and Bangla Road (main party road), which none of the youngish crowd seem to mind.
