Jep's Bungalows

Cheap, friendly, popular

What we say: 3.5 stars

Of the three long-running budget spots that occupy the hillside across the road from Ao Hin Khok, we feel Jep's is the clear winner. The cheapest fan rooms should satisfy hard core budget backpackers, though the holes in the walls might even turn some of them off. With little more than a firm mattress and weak rotating fan mounted to the ceiling, these are set in a very dingy longhouse style building with basic shared cold water bathroom facilities. If you can swing it, the orange fan bungalows, while also a bit rundown, are far more inviting and also bag you an attached wet bathroom with hot water, as well as a tiny TV and fridge. Perched high up on the hill, the wooden-walled air-con room we checked out was also a bit worn, though acceptable for the price. We found staff to be pleasant and helpful, and the well-established beachside restaurant serves some of the best Thai barbecue, baked goods and coffee on the island.
