We stayed one night en rote to Ko Lipe. It was a good choice and good value at 240 Baht for a double room. We chose it largely because other reviews mentioned it had a travel agent downstairs and we needed to buy tickets to Ko Lipe so we could travel the following day. Many reviews accurately describe this guesthouse.... More

You get what you pay. If you just need a place to sleep, shower and good rest, you just have to pay for those things only. No need to pay extra fee for unnecessary things like wifi, tv etc.. But, If you still require internet connection, you just have to pay additional fee, which is the internet fee. You can... More

First thing I really would recommend about this place is of course the LOCATION! it's close to everthing. I get a walking distance from the hotel to the train station which I use to get back from Hatyai to Kuala Lumpur. There're many restaurants nearby and also Halal food restaurants which is affordable. Don'tr worry if youre hungry late night... More

If you can save some baht by calling and making a reservation, online the rate is about 40 baht more. The location is great, very close to markets, good food, and easy to grab a songtow anywhere in the area. They have good breakfast food for a decent price until 4pm every day. The rooms are okay, the place needs... More

This place is all about location. It's perfect. You're close to almost "everything". Lots of restaurants and bars nearby. Markets are close and it's just a few minutes walk to the railway station. Room was big, basic and clean. Bed. Hard. WiFi was good, you have to pay extra for this. Toilet was the kind of squat toilet. No hot... More

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
