I am back in Thailand for a month and back in Cathay Guesthouse in Hatyai. It has the same prices as a year ago and I have met some of the same people staying there who I met before so it has a homely feel. It is popular mainly with other Asian travellers especially from Jspan. This year there are... More

Centrally located place in downtown Hat Yai. The owners and staff are extremely friendly, helpful and speak decent English. There is a cafe onsite with several Thai and western food options, available until 4 PM. Wifi was fine for emails and basic surfing, 100B/day. The rooms are BASIC, with semi-comfortable bed, table and fan. No A/C. Toilets are squat style... More

good If you are looking for a cheap accomodation for 1 night or so. Don't expect anything fancy or with some kind of atmosphere. it is absolutely just functional and simple, including the bathroom/toilet (squatting style, it's healthy :-) ). The place made a relatively clean impression to us and the people running the place are friendly. some of them... More

I stayed here for one night, at B240 it was the cheapest accommodation I could find. The room was big and had a bathroom attached but it smelled of mold and was run down in general. The location of the guesthouse is very good as it is 5 minutes walk from a pedestrianized market street where there is a variety... More

My room was big with a funky dilapidated toilet inside. Smell of cooking and street noise drifted in from the windows. So did other little creatures (you’ll find out yourself). The building and rooms are really in a state of decay. The clientele are mainly backpackers and old men both in a state of decay as well. No free wifi.... More

We have stayed here for one night for transit to Malyasia. Positive: Cheap place for budget travelers. Very nice meals for a good price. We got a breakfast for two persons for 80 bath. Rooms are big and bathroom inside. Negative: Not free wifi. If you want to use wifi it cost 100 bath/24 hours for one mashine. But, maybe... More

Finding a cheap place in Hat Yai can be quite difficult. Cathay Guest House is a good place where you can stay for a night or two. They have a cheap breakfast (around 60 THB) and another cheap thai dish (30 - 60 THB). I mention this because it is not easy find a cheap and tasty food in Hat... More
