Set along the main road a good 20-minute walk from the beach, Ao Nang Backpacker was among the first places to offer dorm beds in the area.

Though it’s since been joined by a host of other hostels, it remains a great choice for travellers on a tight budget. The air-con mixed dorm on the second floor is clean and cavernous, with no less than 30 thick mattresses on bunks lined up close together -- so close in some cases that it might feel like you’re sharing a double bed with the neighbour. If you’re a female and that sounds uncomfortable, opt for the six-bed women-only room. All bunks have a small private reading lamp and electrical outlet. Lockers are also provided along with basic hot-water bathrooms scattered around the building, which looks a lot smaller from the street than it really is. The open-air ground floor has communal computers, board games, books and a street-side terrace with a big table that brings travellers together after dark. Staff are friendly and helpful. Across the road, the original branch of the Slumber Party Hostel is another solid choice with a happening bar and slightly more expensive dorms.
