        Strategic location, Cheap, Quiet

        Easy to check-in. Just provided the printed voucher with my passport. Staff handed the key to the room. However, it wasn't easy to find a place to park my car near Cathay Guesthouse (they do not have their own parking area). I was a little worried thinking about the safety of my car since I parked in a public place 2 streets behind the hotel. Apart from that, I enjoyed my stay in Cathay Guesthouse.

Comfortable, eateries and computers/internet located at the lobby check-in. The only bad thing is the facilities is a bit ruined down.

        thankfully brief”

        walking disntance from the train station, close to central restaurants

        We had to spend a night in Hat Yai, due to our connections, we choose the cheapest option, for one night how bad could it be... We selected a private room with its own bathroom and fan; to say it was basic is an understatement, the room is resonably large, and there is a bathroom, though probably not updated this century... The room will quite possibly shock you when you enter, but on reflection it was clean, the bed had clean linens, but it clearly could have used some paint on the walls, and some more furniture. In it's defence the staff were friendly and made the best of what they had to work with and were helpful with all our enquiries. I would not recomend this place, but if you're stranded in Hat Yai and need somewhere walking distance to the train station (literally 300m) then this may well be your solution. At US $8 we didn't expect much, but we slept well in a quiet room and were attentively served; so for the one night passing through it served its purpose....

        is clean and bed are comfortable to sleep, the location is strategic where it is in the middle of the town

        is a great place to stay, if you willing to be talkative then you are able to make friends with the bagpackers there. people there is nice and willing to help but if they dont bother you then you better move away and ask help from others. further to add on, the place is really near to attractions there and you can just walk, but remember never take tuk-tuk unless you are going to the municipal park. if possible charter a tuk-tuk for only RM50 a day, dont go for a trip charter as it is expensive... btw dont go for expensive hotel as cathay is already enough for a place to sleep

        easy walking distance to train station, fast check in/check out, conveniently located to heaps of food and shops

        Cathay's is located on the 3rd floor. Be prepared to climb stairs (no lift, no wheelchair accesible). The daytime lady is polite, efficient and knowledgeable... the opposite is true of the evening gentleman. I was happily surprised by the size of the bed and room. Both were a quite big. The Guesthouse also offers breakfast/lunch and beverages for purchase. Laundry can be done rather inexpensively. Wi-fi works well (approximately 100 baht/day). Noise is a big issue here. Located on a main thoroughfare in Hat Yai central, it is often quite noisy even late at night. Also, there was construction of some sort close by, it carried on at odd hours. If you are looking for a quiet night, bring earplugs! Acceptable if used only for a place of rest, very short transit period. I enjoyed Hat Yai... perhaps next time, I will stay in other accommodations.

        good for traveller in budget”

        the room is quite old but very clean. for me, its not luxure but quite comfy. if your main focus of travelling to meet people and learn their culture, cathay is .absolute choice because you'll get privacy but still can meet many people in the lounge

        location, staff, food

        i have stayed at cathay for many nights. usually a week minimum. i love the location, staff, mix of travellers from all over the world. it is far from a palace with the crapptoilets being the major drawback. i use the place as my base when in hatyai.

        Great for budget travel”

        Don't expect anything extraordinary if you are a budget traveler. As long as we have a good night sleep, this is beyond satisfactory with the price we paid. The WiFi connection is great! Try to request for early check in if you arrive early morning, they will accommodate your request. But a big no-no for late check out. The guesthouse location is pretty good, just a few mins walk to the night market area in front of Lee Gardens Plaza, Central Shopping Mall, Odean, Starbucks, CIMB atm, Santisuk market, etc.

        only if you are OK with cheap, very cheap”

        nothing

        You get what you pay for. Really cheap and basic accomodation. The bathroom was smelly, and that affected my sleep. My room was right on a street, so it was very noisy, all night long. I could not sleep at all. Good thing you get towels. The bed was OK. You have to pay for WiFi! And I paid more with Agoda, walk-in fare was 200baht only. It is conveniently located near the train station and shopping malls. I would not stay there again, the atmosphere with other guest was not good, I did not feel very safe. I actually did not sleep at all that night because of the street noiusr, the smell from the bathroom into my room and not feeling safe. Also, I don't recomment Hat Yai for anything, but the systems makes me choose something and there is no "nothing" option.

        Cheap 'in-transit' crash pad”

        Guesthouse was a welcoming one night transit stay after a long bus/van journey from Phuket. Arriving late afternoon in Haadyai in pouring rain I was just glad to have already booked a guesthouse to stay the night before the next morning's onward journey to KL. Reception lady was absolutely friendly helpful & cheerful. Even bought my Haadyai -KL bus ticket there. Room was large with a big bed, fan but dismal bathroom/toilet. Oh well its cheap as hell and great location with Odeon & Robinson dept stores plus the iconic train station nearby. Had time the next morning to even visit the old market at Hatyai Plaza. I would definitely book this guesthouse again for my next 'transit' stay but choose proper hotels if Haadyai is your dominant destination.

        near to shopping centres, train station, ticket agent

        All the facilities are very basic. It is an old building but clean, feels like 70s mood...no air conditioner, only fan. Be noted that hat yai is a very hot small town.

        Price is cheap

        This guesthouse's location is quite strategic, as it is just located to the town area and walking in few minutes will reach to town area. furthermore, it was near to the railway station. Nice staff and always keep smiling also in this guesthouse.

        Acceptable”

        Long time ago there were very few guesthouses or hotels in Hat Yai City which have not-shared bathroom with cheap accommodation fare. But you no longer need to stay Cathey because several cheap and clean hostels have already opened around the train station. Only one good point is wifi, very fast and stable.

        Vomit with bile”

        location

        hard to complain too much about a room , but the place is priced about right. Uncomfortable bed, ants in the bathroom, and overall dingy feeling. The killer was the breakfast. I ordered two banana shakes and eggs with toast. I felt queazy within an hour of eating, and about 5 hours later, having eaten nothing else, all of it came up, all of it, together with the bile from my duodenum, followed later by liquid out of my rearend. Sorry for be crass review, but that's what happened! It was 100% the food at Cathay. Thanks Cathay guesthouse for giving me fever, chills, and cleaning out my intestines!
