Tiew Pai is dirt cheap, which might explain its shabby appearance; a mishmash of bungalows and rows of rooms, right near the pier.

At 200 baht for a bed, it offers probably the island's lowest price, unless you're willing to go to an off-the-map home-turned-guesthouse. Tiew Pai is geared towards backpackers, claiming the title of the only international hostel in town. Depending on what you're willing to fork over, some rooms come with private bathrooms, a fan, air-con, a fridge and a TV. Rooms are kept clean, though they're not particularly soothing to stay in or concerned with aesthetics. The kindest thing you can say about the bathrooms is that they are useable. The bungalows do have a certain old Thai charm, with sloping roofs and wooden furniture. Tiew Pai doesn't have WiFi or breakfast, but their on-site restaurant serves up basic, reasonably priced Thai and Western food and opens early. The restaurant also manages the swimming and snorkelling excursions, and the staff can give you valuable advice about Ko Si Chang.
