The majority of guesthouses and budget hotels in Chiang Mai are located on the Eastern side of the moat, tucked in quiet lanes.
If you want to stay at the cheapest guesthouses, the standard is pretty simple: shared bathroom and clean enough!
Here are some options!

Julie's is probably one of the cheapest guesthouses in Chiang Mai.
Rooms are clean, cheap and simple! - Everything a backpacker needs!
The staff is very helpful and will help you arrange treks, visa runs, flights, cooking classes and so much more.
You're going to love the relaxed atmosphere and you can just hang out in their garden, or play pool.
Where: 7/1 Soi 5, Phrapokklao
Price per night: twin, double or triple room with fan (250-500B), twin, double or triple room with AC (600-800B)
SK House are popular guesthouses! This is why:
I personally liked this place and fell in love with their garden and the Pad Thai chicken.
They provide laundry service, internet access and overseas calls. If you want to make a cheaper call, there's a pay phone just outside the entrance to SK House.
If you want to arrange trekking tours, the staff at the guest house can help you with that. But beware of the fact that there has been some reports on trek-pushing at SK House. I`m afraid I can't comment this because I haven't experienced it.
