Maggie’s Homestay also known as Maggie’s Guesthouse might be the most popular accomodation for backpackers in Prachuap Khiri Khan. With a room rate starting at 180 ฿, it’s the cheapest place in town, but its not the only reason for its popularity. This old thai wooden house is really charming and the shaded garden in front is the best place to hang out and meet people.
Maggie’s Homestay provides quite a lot of facilities : common kitchen, large living room, laundry service and wifi available in the house and in the garden. You’ll also have the possibility to rent bicycles and motorbikes.
As for the rooms, the cheapest are located in an extension of the house itself. Their price varies between 180 and 250 ฿ for a single room and 350 to 600 ฿ for a double room. The cheapest rooms are located in a concrete extension of the main house, they are quite small with shared bathrooms, but they are confortable, clean and well maintained. If you’re looking for a bit more space, the 3 rooms at the second floor of the house will cost you between 500 and 600 ฿. They are bigger and have an old thai-style feeling which make a difference. Note that these 3 rooms have also a shared bathroom.
That said, the main attractive feature of Maggie’s Homestay might be the atmosphere. The garden, especially, is a real meeting point for travellers and it’s not rare that the evening ends up in a improvised party.
To sum up, if you travel with a tight budget and if you’re eager to meet people, Maggie’s Homestay might be the best choice in town. But if you’re looking for privacy and quietness, maybe you should consider staying in another place.
