Budget digs on the inland road
8/17 Moo 4, Haad Sai Khao, Ko Chang T: (039) 619 037
This long-running English-Thai owned guesthouse is set on a quiet side lane that runs inland from the main drag, between the north and south parts of the beach.
It's less than a 10-minute walk to the sand from here. The whole place has a yellow and green theme, with rooms set on a sloping hillside. The cheapest "cabin" editions are basic concrete bungalows with nothing more than a bed (or two), fan, couple of windows and wood bench out front. A newer concrete block looms high above at the rear of the property, and this is where you'll find the larger fan and air-con rooms with extras like TV and fridge. There's not a whole lot of character in the rooms, which is probably because there seems to usually be a few characters hanging around at the open-air restaurant set next to a large fountain. A few interesting little cafes are also located on this road, and next door you'll find the eccentric (but more rundown) Tuk Tuk Guesthouse, which offers basic bungalows at similar rates.
