On time, but I was left to figure out where the bus would leave from as the company staff at the station couldnt speak a word of english.

Most of the passengers are locals thus don't be too surprised if questions go unanswered. Do your research and list down some common questions in Thai. Else, get some help from the passengers. Thais are generally very nice and helpful. Not advisable for those with huge luggage. There ain't enough room for legs, not to mention backpacks or luggages.
