A popular budget option
247/6 Moo 2 Ao Nang T: (075) 637 524, (075) 695 068
Amid a side-street cluster of budget accommodation that also includes J Mansion, Sea World and Mini Boxtel, Jinda is one of the cheapest private room options in Ao Nang.
The straightforward guesthouse has seen its share of backpackers over the years; evidenced by scuffmarks on the walls, well-worn furnishings and a somewhat jaded staff. Despite all of this, it remains solid value, with rates that hadn’t gone up at all since our last visit (unusual in this part of Thailand). We stayed in an upper-floor air-con room that got the job done with a mini-fridge, fan, table suitable for working, TV with a few English channels, gloomy hot-water wet bathroom, spring bed with an oversized towel for a blanket, and tinted glass window that affords a slight sea view. Jinda also serves up fan rooms with private bathrooms and all of the same amenities found in the air-con editions, or bare-bones fan rooms on the ground floor that rely on shared bathrooms. Those are among the cheapest private rooms in Ao Nang, and as such, they’re often full.
