Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 3 nights and did the whole day tour and the half day tour. Both tours were amazing and we loved it!
The tour guides have so much knowledge and know exactly what they are looking for. We saw...More
Rooms are as many described. Basic, with fan and attached toilet with shower and cold water. Requests for the rooms further inside (ie room numbers above 10) as they are slightly "nicer".
The full day tours are shared with other operators - for economic purpose...More
The guesthouse provided exactly what they promise: a cheap room and pretty good food. The local staff were very nice and understanding. We took the half day tour, which was excellent: the guide was great and showed us all sorts of stuff, most notably the...More
We stayed at Greenleaf in mid March and, after reading some of the reviews, I must admit that I was a bit sceptical before I went but after, I've got nothing but praise. Our guides, Joe and Lee, were brilliant. We saw gibbons, elephant and...More

I'm reading just now! Hope to be still useful..
You can book writing them an email to the address you find on their website (Greenleaf Guesthouse & Tour Khao Yai Thailand).

Did you stay in the nicer (with AC) rooms? I hear they have more 'luxurious' rooms back behind the main hotel? Does anyone know how much more they cost? We're a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 teens).
Also, anyone know the starting and ending times of the night and day tours?
We're hoping to arrive in Pak Chong (by train from Ayutthaya) mid-afternoon, and then do the night tour with Greenleaf. Then do the full-day tour the next day.
We'd love to be able to get back to Pak Chong after the full day tour in time to catch the 8pm train back to Ayutthaya. But maybe that's cutting it too close?
We'd love any advice/suggestions on the logistics of getting to/from Ayutthaya in a somewhat efficient manner : >
P.S. What's making this all sort of difficult, is that I've read it's very important to avoid going on a night safari on busy weekend nights in Khao Yai, since it's insanely busy and we'd be unlikely to see any animals...any thoughts on that?

1) we took the 8:30ish a.m. train from Ayuthaya to Pakchong and it took about 2 hours, this I can confirm. There's different types of train, from faster to very slow. I got the timetable. I'll try to send it to you.
2) if you don't want to miss the afternoon tour, you should arrive at Packchong by 1p.m. That's what the hotel suggested to us. There will be someone waiting for you for sure.
3) the aircon rooms at the back were 1,000 baths I think in December 2015. We were not staying there, but a French couple showed us. The rooms are bigger and look more comfy than the basic one at 300 baths. Not sure I'd call them "luxurious" though. Remember that the Greenleaf is a backpacker hotel.
4) The advantage of this hotel is that they are VERY WELL organized. The guides got the eyes to find all kind of animals. With luck, you might see elephants like we did. They seem to go in places where nobody else is going, even when the park is full with people.
5) Night tour from 3 p.m. to 8p.m more of less; day tour from 9a.m. to 5 or 6p.m. If you ask them you'll have a better idea.
6) going back to the train station after the day tour shouldn't be a problem. They surely had the same request before.
7) Enjoy the food there. It's good.
Hope that helps
