Over Bay has a good selection of inexpensive basic bungalows for backpackers and a couple of newer deluxe air-con units with satellite TV which are popular for longer stays.
One could probably lose several kilos hiking up and down the stairs here, but Jar and Nut, the friendly owners, make the trek worthwhile, providing spacious and clean rooms of a decent quality. They're mostly well-built, but the smallest huts have enough gaps to let a horde of insects and small reptilian visitors in. If that sort of thing doesn't bother you, the views and cool breeze at this great height are wonderful. The restaurant has good view as well, but the menu is just average.
