Simple facilities but clean and well maintained. AC in the room was fantastic. Staff were friendly and very helpful. This is the best option for backpackers in Langkawi.


Where to begin?! I LOVED this hostel. The staff was definitely the best part, but the whole setup was fantastic as well. On-site scooter rentals, cheap beer and a great ambience made for a fantastic stay. They provides towels and laundry service, and the kitchen is great for people who want to cook to save money. The AC room was perfect after a long day on the beach.


Super clean and cute hostel. It's like a nice little villa. Also great security and location...highly recommend!


Couldn't rate this place highly enough. Great location, friendly and helpful owner and staff, great facilities. One of the nicest hostels we have stayed in.


Very helpfull and friendly owner also the receptionist Amy helped me alot in my trip planning. Room was very clean and has wonderfull air freshener and Air con. The only thing is that the place is full of lizard, frogs and insects and you can find any in your room that is why because of the location near to a forest. If you have a problem with these types don't stay here.


Just a short walk into the beach, great location! Rooms were nice and a great value for the money we paid. Recommend!


Amazing stay at one of the best run guest houses we've been to in Malaysia. The staff were amazing, introducing new guests to existing ones to make socialising easier. The kitchen is basic but lots of great cheap places to eat nearby. And they have beers for RM2 a can, the cheapest on the island! 4 dogs are lovely, and the place just has a great vibe. Short walk to the quiet beach or just 10 mins to the hustle and bustle of Pantai Cenang.


Beautiful hostel and the lady that runs hostel was amazing - so lovely and kind and really works hard.changed our room with availability giving us better but cheaper room (we had to book triple for two of us due to availability but moved to a double) stayed an extra night as generally amazing!


Just a little walk from the main street , but I liked the single rooms


Great hostel, with single rooms ! And a kitchen ! Just a little further from the main beach and shops, but the walk isnisnt that bad. Plus there are restaurants around the hostel too. Will come back !


This hostel was ok given the price. The lady in reception was very helpful and informative and the book of onward tours/transport was really useful. The double room was very basic and one of the more uncomfortable beds we have slept on, but ok for a couple of nights. There are some nice bars/cafés/restaurants nearby but the walk to Cenang (main nightlife area) is a good 20 mins. I'd recommend staying more local anyway as both beach and bars are nicer in that area.

Our location is clearly mentioned here as in Pantai Tengah. Local shops and restaurant are just next door. Also, 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 here at the first place - one of the cheapest accommodations in the island.


I really enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were cosy and clean. They had a nice common area where you can sit and read, or listen to music and chat with other travellers. They had vending machines with food and drinks (including cheap beer). The location is about 15 min walk from the main street but there is also a lot of restaurants and bars near the guest house. It's got a less touristy vibe which I liked. Also the staff can organise anything you want while you are there (tours, bokes etc)


Convenient location for beach. ~10 mins walk to Pantai Tengah (calmer / less people - beachfront is mostly hotels). ~20 mins to Pantai Cenang (more lively - many bars). Rooms are basic but good for the price. Common area has lockers but you need to bring or buy a lock. Free water (and instant coffee / tea) are a nice touch. Vending machine with cheap drinks (~2 ringgit for beer). Scooter rentals onsite; their excursions are convenient and priced about the same as elsewhere on the island.


Well run, deals on tours, easy moped hire, gt team & atmosphere & facilities


We enjoyed our stay there, it's quite far from the main beach, but we liked it as you can access more quiet beaches with 10 min walk range. The accommodation is quite basic but clean. A littlie bit more space for drying clothes would be nice. Otherwise it was ok.


Basic but has all the necessary facilities. Staff very helpful and excursions can be booked from the hostel. Air conditioning is a fan so some may have difficulty sleeping with it on but I actually found it cool enough without it on. Toilet and shower room were easily accessible to mosquitoes and such. Unofficial and possibly temporary shortcut meant beach was only five mins away otherwise it would be around a 20 min walk. But beach is quieter than the more touristy one down the coast.

We have airconditioning rooms and fan rooms for options and this is very clear in our microsite. Pax booked fan room hence he got fan only in his room.


Really liked the hostel as it had a good vibe and the lady running it knew everything to do. Book of tours, etc was handy. Prices on all the drinks and food were really fair. Only a quick walk to the beach. Rent a scooter or car and explore the island, so much to see.


Everything just perfect. They treat us like family
