The staff are ok (ish), but the rooms are truly gross, the place is suffering from a severe case of total neglect, long ago broken shower heads, stinky pillows full of of solidified lumps of human sweat\grease, decrepid room furniture, and walls that desperately need painting totally depressing place to wake up in. There always seems to be a steady... More

I didn't stay here but walked in to ask if they had rooms available when I was on an overland trip to Malaysia. As soon as I stepped in there was this guy (not Thai, a westerner) with blood injected eyes telling me they're full and then asking all sort of personal questions. There was a Thai girl behind the...

This place is really disgusting. The walls and bathroom are completely filthy. The floors are uneven and it really looks like its falling apart. They give you a very light blanket, but mine was full of holes, and I didn't use the cheap towel they provided because the shower was so disgusting. The guy working didn't really speak English and...

I have lived in Hatyai on three occassions while working as an English teacher and my last trip to Thailand I stayed at the Cathay Guest House for nearly two and a half years until August 2013 because it was close to my school. The hole in the ground type toilets were previously normal everywhere in Asia so they don't... More

Imagine 'The Beach', the backpacking movie starring Leonardo de Caprio. Imagine the room he was staying at when he was in Bangkok. That summarized this place. That was the first impression that I had when I looked into the rooms. Overall, it was a very cheap deal. THB 240 for a double fan room, come on, where else can you... More

Lots of dodgy people hanging around the reception. Very very grubby and run down throughout. The guy at the desk had minimal English and was barely any help. However he was not unfriendly. And the place was not outwardly dirty nor did it have insects that we could see. It felt like you were in a dilapidated prison. We stayed... More

Recommended by a nearby tour company, we were happy to settle for a cheap room here during our transit. Upon arrival, the friendly staff repeatedly warned us that the rooms did not have air conditioning. This was the least of our worries. We hiked up the two floors of stairs and checked in. We were required to show our visas,... More

I can't say this the good GH, but it is cheap and satisfied for me. they provide transport such like taxi & van(of course need to pay) and also able to rent motorcycle, I believe is hard to get motorcycle rental in around HatYai. they have a small restaurant and such like mini market selling some local snack & drink....
