Just about every Thai provincial capital has a “Thai Hotel” offering dirt-cheap accommodation.

We felt that Phatthalung’s version is the best of a few backpacker budget hotels for those travelling on a shoestring.

Centrally located but hidden behind a Bangkok Bank branch just south of Apaiborirak Road, the Thai is set in a large concrete building that appeared to have received a fresh coat of light-yellow paint not long before research time. Accessed by a lift, the dated but well-kept rooms are spacious and bright thanks to wide windows and high ceilings. Fan rooms come with ceiling fans, desks with old telephones and cold-water bathrooms, while the air-con editions bag you a mini-fridge and hot water in bathrooms that are just large enough for two to share. Grab an upper-floor room and you just might get a view of Khao Ok Thalu. Beds are hard, linens are cheap and rooms have no decor, but we’ve seen a lot worse in this price range.

We reckon the lobby looks and feels how it did 40 years ago, and virtually no English is spoken by a receptionist who will communicate the rates by punching in numbers on a calculator. There’s also no English sign, though it’s hard to miss the big yellow building with Thai flags out front. A bit closer to the train station on Kuha Sawan Road, the Hua Far Hotel is another ageing budget spot with less-inviting rooms for slightly less cash.
