Available for solo travellers and couples, the cheapest digs are set in a large wooden longhouse with high metal ceiling—expect voices to carry through the thin walls. These come with choice of shared or private bathroom with cold-water shower, bucket-flush toilet and cement floor. Also equipped with a portable fan and mosquito net tied up over soft mattress with proper comforters, the double budget room we checked out is good low-end budget value.

Walk a bit further down the lane to find a bunch of square-shaped bungalows with brushed cement floors, wood walls, tiled wet bathrooms and benches on small porches. These stand in a semi-circle around a lawn with no shade but plenty of brightly painted dinosaur statues.

PD’s bungalow interiors are drearier than those found at Ban Klong Jao Homestay, Mangrove and Cozy House, but we like how guests can choose to pay from 100 to 400 baht extra for added comforts like fridge, air-con and hot water. The bungalow we peeked into was dark due to minimal windows and dim lighting, but it appeared adequately kept from what we could see.

Most guests just show up at the little convenience store where a fat cat lounged on the reception desk when we last visited. The manager was welcoming and quick to show us rooms.

PD’s main disadvantage is its location just over a kilometre from the beach, with much of that including an undeveloped stretch of road. While not out of the question for walkers, PD works best as a budget base for those renting motorbikes. Khlong Chao Waterfall is only a half-kilometre to the north and you’ll find a couple of nearby eateries near the funky Bartist bar, which is right across from PD. Also down this way you’ll find Mata Guesthouse, a smaller but otherwise similar choice.

Elsewhere on Kut, budgeteers could also consider the basic 500-baht rooms at Happy Days Guesthouse run by Paradise Divers in Ao Ngam Kho; the 650-baht rooms at Wooden Hut and 250-baht dorms at Eve’s House, both down near Ao Ta Khian in the south; and Kama Siri with its 700-baht air-con tents located further inland on the way to Huang Nam Kaew Waterfall in the north. If you’re out of options, BB Divers might also have a bunk leftover in its dorm.
