I really liked this place! The staff were very nice and helpful to all the guests. The guesthouse itself is located 5-10 mins from the nearest beach and 20-25 mins to the main beach/mall by foot. If you are like me and like walking, then it's fine. You will have to rent a scooter if not. The guesthouse itself was really chilled with free wifi and water. I liked the room too. a simple bed with fan was enough for me.
we stayed in for 4 nights, and it was wonderful. the staff is really nice and always helpful. for 30rm per 24h you can rent a scooter, which is really recommendable. rooms are clean and neat. 10-15 min walk to the beach, restaurants and bars around the corner. if I come back, I'll definitely gonna stay here again.
Solid guesthouse, providing all a backpacker needs, with great efficiency. Too efficient... I felt far more laid back in KL and even Singapore. They're over zealous here: After months of living in dorms, I looked forward to the peace and quiet of a single room - but the gossipy staff continually intruded, wondering why I wanted them NOT to clean for a day or two. I know they were just trying to do their jobs but message to owner: take it easy, it's a beach for gods sake. I won't be returning.
After travelling for many years and struggling to find good hostels abroad, this has got to be one of the best! My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The staff are so welcoming and kind, they are willing to do all that they can to help from printing your boarding passes to lending you an umbrella for the monsoon downpours. Despite checking out for 12 we arrived home from a day trip island hopping and offered a warm shower- perfect end to our stay! Thank you.
Zackry's is always welcoming and home like. I have stayed here once before and loved it then too. Its a little away from the happening and busy pantai chenang but I was glad for it because it was peaceful and just the perfect thing for a weekend getaway. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Langkawi.
Wifi codes expired, so if you checked out late you could not use the Internet. We had an air-con room but it only worked so-so. On the plus side: amazingly helpful staff, great location close to beach and restaurants.
I loved Zackry Guest House. Amazing location - so close to the beach, restaurants and shops. The staff are helpful and friendly and full of useful information. We stayed for 4 nights in total and one of the nicest places we have stayed. Very sociable guest house with cheap beers and food. The rooms were cleaned daily and we had no complaints. I would definitely come back here.
The staff were rude and not at all helpful. Would definitely not visit again
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
Great place to stay although it is a bit far off from the main strip. Staff is super friendly and helpful, rooms and facilities were extremely clean!
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!
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
The owners are incredible =).

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.

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.
