Photo of Pott Guesthouse
Budget travellers who like Chaweng and aren’t concerned with ambiance or a beachfront location will probably be happy here.

Set off the main drag down a stubby lane with laundry, a coffee stand, Thai massage and a tattoo parlour (everything you need!), the three-storey concrete building looks across to the Pott Restaurant, which serves good Thai food and is where you’ll need to go to check in.

Accessed by stairs and open-sided halls, the tile-floor rooms are clean and functional, with proper comforters on soft queen beds. Both the fan and air-con rooms come with fridges, free WiFi, TVs with a few English channels and wood-and-glass doors leading to balconies facing straight at the restaurant. Ensuite wet bathrooms come with hot water in air-con rooms only. We stayed in an air-con room for a couple of nights to make sure that there wasn’t a catch, and we can confidently say that these rooms are some of the best budget bargains on Chaweng.

Other solid options for private rooms in this area include Zanzy Guesthouse, DD Guesthouse, Pepper Guesthouse and Samui Hostel, all offering air-con rooms in the 600 to 800 baht range. There’s also Time Hotel, offering larger air-con rooms behind a coffee shop for around 800 baht.
