Photo of Madinah Hostel
Set on the ground floor of a large converted shophouse painted blue and white, the common room was full of young travellers when we stopped in to receive a very warm welcome from a family that has clearly put a lot of thought and effort into the place. They offer three air-con sleeping options, starting with an eight-bed mixed dorm with thick mattresses on plain white bunks, small lockers, lots of windows and electrical outlets. Clean hot-water bathrooms are divided by gender and attached to the room.

While the standard dorm is good, we’d spend an extra 50 baht for a “sleep box,” a fully enclosed pod with a sliding wood door, shelf, reading lamp and electrical outlet. Private double rooms are also solid for the price, with wide windows, tables, ensuite wet bathrooms and even LCD TVs. Stairs lead up to all rooms and each floor has a spacious but sparsely furnished common area. WiFi is free.

Note that the Muslim-Thai owners don’t serve alcohol and would prefer if guests don’t bring it inside. The location on the east side of town near the hospital doesn’t offer much in the immediate vicinity, but from here you can walk for around 15 minutes west to Rueangrat and about the same distance east, crossing under the highway, to reach Raksawarin Hot Springs.

Back on Rueangrat, the basic Ranong Backpackers Hostel has more cramped dorms for around the same price in a more central location; it’s a better option if you’re looking to party.
