Most of Trang's guesthouses and hotels are located near the train station and along Rama VI Road. Enough competition in the budget to flashpacker range has resulted in exceptional value for some comfortable rooms. Unless you're an upmarket traveller, the quality rooms for cheap are one of many good reasons to hang around.

Ban Ao Thong
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
25/28-31 Sathanee Rd, Trang
T: (075) 225 611-2

This comfy flashpacker guesthouse is located 50 metres south of the train station and right next to a terrific kopi and breakfast shop. Elaborate woodcarvings and traditional Thai paintings define the cheerful decor that extends into guestrooms. Rooms with no windows are available on the ground floor, but we'd opt for the slightly more expensive upper floor editions. Equipped with tile floors,... Read our full review of Ban Ao Thong.

Jing Jing
Backpacker - Under 600B
Corner of Rama VI Rd and Rama VI Soi 3, Trang
T: (075) 218 077

Previously Hotel 23, on our previous visit to Trang, the centrally located, century-old Jing Jing was a crumbling hunk of grey that wasn't worth mentioning. By late 2014 it had been fully refurbished and now gives the Sri-Trang a run for its money. All four floors are outfitted with balconies that wrap around the street corner, with fresh green and white paint befitting the heritage architecture.... Read our full review of Jing Jing.

Mitree House
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
6-8 Sathanee Rd, Trang
T: (075) 212 292

New on the scene as of 2015, Mitree House is a great option for flashpackers who like their comforts but don't want to miss out on the atmosphere of a backpacker-style guesthouse. The refurbished yellow building stands next to the popular Sri Trang Hotel and within sight of the train station, making this a very convenient choice as well. The cheapest room is situated on the ground floor,... Read our full review of Mitree House.

PJ Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under 600B
25/12 Sathanee Rd
T: (081) 374 6769

Long-running PJ's dirt-cheap rooms offer excellent low-budget value thanks to the warm hospitality you'll find here. Relying on shared cold-water bathrooms at the end of the hall, rooms are small, simple and reasonably well kept, with thin mattresses on steel frames, worn linens, wall-mounted fans and small tables. This is not the lap of luxury but should be acceptable for shoestring budget... Read our full review of PJ Guesthouse.

Sri-Trang Hotel
Backpacker - Under 600B
22-26 Sathanee Rd, Trang
T: (075) 218 122

Opened in 1952, the Sri-Trang remains one of the easiest to find and most popular options in town. Just across from the train station, the attractive heritage building sits in the middle of a cluster of travel offices and restaurants. Despite being called a hotel, the place has a definite guesthouse vibe thanks to a low-key cafe, shared computers, potted plants near a goldfish pond, shelf to stow...

Yamawa Guesthouse
Backpacker - Under 600B
94 Visetkul Rd, Trang
T: (075) 216 617

Often forgotten due to its somewhat out-of-the-way location, Yamawa is a cosy eight-room guesthouse run by one very friendly woman. She arranges motorbike rental and boat bookings while also providing a wealth of info on the area. Rooms are set upstairs and, while not huge, come with particularly soft and cushy beds to go with small TVs, windows, free WiFi and woven bamboo adorning parts of the...

My Friend
Backpacker - Under 600B
25/17-20 Sathanee Rd, Trang
T: (075) 225 447

Tucked away beyond a corner of the train station parking lot, My Friend remains a solid option for a comfortable night's sleep. We'd pass on the ground-floor windowless rooms due to mustiness, but the upper floor rooms are clean, spacious and equipped with tile floors, hot-water wet bathrooms, TVs (though not many English channels), free WiFi that works reasonably well, desks and mini-fridges....

Nokhook House
Backpacker - Under 600B
135/8-9 Soid Udomlarp 9, Trang
T: (061) 569 4262

A new addition as of 2014, Nokhook is operated by the same owners as Sri-Trang Hotel but located about two km away (a free van shuttle is provided). Cool and airy private rooms have comfortable beds, soft lamps with stencils of owls, small flatscreen TVs and wood desks on polished concrete floors. An attached building is equipped with four-bed and eight-bed dorm rooms with unusually thick... Read our full review of Nokhook House.

Thumrin Hotel
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
99 Sathanee Rd, Trang
T: (075) 211 011-14

Presumably trying to keep up with Trang's excellent guesthouses, Thumrin's 117 rooms had received some sprucing up since our last visit. The 10-floor hotel still looks like a giant column of white in the centre of town, but the interior is now graced with tasteful teal trim and framed photos of peacocks and mangroves. The spacious rooms were outfitted with new appliances and looked spotless, with... Read our full review of Thumrin Hotel.
