The room is simple, clean, and affordable, which is all I was looking for. The bathroom floor was always wet and I wish there were towels to keep it dry or slippers for visitors to avoid slipping, and there was no toilet paper. I guess guests are expected to bring their own, but the restaurant bathroom downstairs was stocked with toilet paper, slippers, and was well-maintained. It would've been nice if the guest bathroom was too.
Kumi was very kind and helpful with sightseeing recommendations, directions, and information on public transport.
The day before my flight, I tried to book transport to the airport with Pons (I think it was) and told her I had to be at the airport at 8am for my 11am flight. After talking about how long it could take to get to the airport and other factors that could cause delays, I decided to take a 6am bus and asked to book transport for that time.
After returning from a long day of sightseeing, Pons told me she booked me 8am transport, which would pick up other passengers before heading to the airport and that we "should" get there by 9:30 and that I would still have an hour and half before take-off. I said it didn't give me enough time, and I needed to get there earlier. She said she'd booked this for many people before and insisted I had enough time. I had an international flight and have travelled internationally before; I know how long it takes to go through check-in, security, immigration, etc. and I would rather be there early with plenty of time than worry about missing my flight. I asked for 6am transport intentionally to avoid possible problems, and Pons booked me an 8am service. She seemed personally upset/ angry when I tried to explain and politely decline her offer. After going back and forth for a while, I just said I couldn't take the 8am and would like to cancel the reservation. I felt bad because she seemed upset, but I couldn't risk missing my flight.
There are plenty of businesses that offer all sorts of tours and transport to the airport. I found one just around he corner (towards KhaoSan Road) down the street from Green Garden and paid 150B (the same price I would've paid through Pons) for 6am transport.
