The staff were rude and not at all helpful. Would definitely not visit again

We enjoyed good reviews of our friendliness, however every guest is unique and one experience might differ from others. Having said that we might react depend on how pax treat us as well since it is a very rare exception from others' reviews.

All round great stay, the perfect hosts and great value for money. Great facilities for breakfast ... Free tea and coffee all day. Really cheap beers, milk, cereal, cookies and noodles to buy all day :) thank you zackry house! And the loveliest ladies who helped us planning taxis, trips and where to eat! Xxxx

amazing stay

Really enjoyed my time here. The two ladies at reception were very friendly and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. Easily the best hostel I've stayed in for a long time. Unlike the usual motel, there was a common room and access to a kitchen which was really handy, and it was a great relaxing way to meet new people. Great for when travelling by yourself.

Myself and my partner had an amazing stay! We came at a really busy period and we struggled to find a means to get from Langkawi to the perhentians! The staff were amazing they helped us organise accomodation and travel and also organised us to have a hire car which was dropped off at the resort! Location wise we were a short 10 min walk to the town centre, the rooms were clean and what you expect for the money you pay overall a very good place would definitely recommend

The staff are lovely and the honesty policy is a very sweet idea. My room with a fan was very warm so beware!

It's hot season at the heatwave all over the world - our place is not spared. We provide air-conditioned rooms however - obviously with a cost. Checking out the local temperature before deciding to book the room with fan or air-conditioned will be strongly advised. We have no control over the weather.

Exactly what it says on the tin. Not a fancy hostel but for the price you really can't go wrong! Really helpful staff and not too far from the airport! Tidy rooms with good basic facilities

Staff here were AMAZING!! Very friendly and lovely people. However, the room that I had (double, with aircon) was not worth it for the price. There were big old cobwebs in the corners of the room, the walls were horrible grey colour and the smell of the room was bad...like mildew and damp. These problems could be easily fixed - air out the room between stays, paint the walls a nicer colour, clean the cobwebs from the ceiling. Then, after doing that, it would be worth 80RM a night.

We enjoy high occupancy so there is no old cobwebs in the room. The possibility to air out the rooms between stays is quite difficult as again, we have busy occupancy. Many different people from different walks of lives occupy the room, we will not rule out the chance of different smells can be lingered after their stay. Obviously we will endeavor to make the stay as comfortable as possible, but please remember we are offer basic place at affordable cost, which is why you chose to stay with us.

I had such a nice time at Zacky Guest House! The owner and the staff were very nice and willing to go out of their way to help you. Wifi was excellent. They also have beers at the common area, which is nice and handy as it's quite a bit of a walk to go to the nearest store-- and not to mention how cheap the beer is there (2rm a can). Awesome common area although it can get a bit mosquito-y at night, however repellents are provided at the reception. Rooms and shower rooms are clean.

Great atmosphere. Nice rooms. The mattress was a bit hard and I'd prefer a proper blanket. The staff were a pleasure to deal with and the common area is the best one for socializing. Would stay at again.

Pax booked single room fan @ RM35/night. Obviously we will endeavor to make all guests' stay as comfortable as possible. We wish we could provide all guests with best facilities ever, but please remember we are offer basic place at affordable cost, which is why you chose to spend your RM35/night/room here at the first place. For the blanket, at 34C with 91% humidity, we provide cotton sheet instead of blanket. Request for blanket however as per signage in the room can be obtained at RM3/piece.

Pete, the hostel owner, is very good and helpful. the location is pretty convenient and there are restaurants and massage nearby. stayed in a single room with fan but found myself a bit sticky when I wake up. anyway, the price is too cheap and you can't ask for more. the bathroom and toilet are clean. will come back if I come to LKW again.

The place was great but a bit out of town.

Owner Comment (Hide)
The description about our place is clearly mentioned at the microsite. We are located at Tengah Beach - the beach is just across the road. However, as clearly mentioned the McD is 1.2 kms away, while Starbuck and KFC are 1.7 kms away. We do understand walking that distances everyday can cause a bit inconveniences for some.

Location was bit of a walk from town, however begin really close to Tengah Beach was awesome. Not a very busy beach and an awesome place to watch sunsets from. Staff was really friendly and helpful. Wifi was really good. My room had a bit of funky smell but I got used to it quickly and didn't notice it much. There is room for improvement with the mattress and pillow. Overall really enjoyed my stay.
