Cathay Guesthouse

Our rating:
3 stars, based on 1 expert review

Cathay Guesthouse may well have been a trendsetter when guesthouses started to open in Hat Yai, but she is showing her age these days and could definitely use a makeover.

Located just off Thamanoonvithi Road on Niphat Unit 2 Road, their convenient location is a plus, but there are more inviting options available elsewhere. One must pass through their indifferent tour operation office to climb the stairs to the second floor reception area. This is the homiest area of the guesthouse along with the small onsite cafe, the blaring TV being the main attraction. The rooms are the bare minimal in an institutional free-of-dangerous-objects way and the barely there mattresses are a step above sleeping on the floor. But if a dry bed and a cold shower are all you need, their prices are excellent and you will likely connect with other budget-minded travellers.
