    A very lovely, peaceful hostel in Langkawi with very friendly staff good facilities at the hostel! It’s quite a walk to the beach or anywhere of importance, but if you hire bikes it’s good. There is a good laundry service across the road. Overall very happy with our stay here!

    Very basic hostel with concrete walls and squeaky beds, nonetheless great value for the price. Hot and cold water, toasts, jam, butter included, shower is hot, there are several cats around all the time but not a bother. Good AC, bags are kept outside the room which seems to be a local thing, freaking irritating. Very laid back staff, you can pretty much do anything you want - bring your own food, alcohol, have a loud party, read a book in silence.

    Wonderful stay, staff was very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were clean with towels provided. The only issue was theft of our shoes, so be careful of where they are kept.

    For what your paying it was a great place. Not heaps of people, just a nice amount to get to know and hang out with. The bed was actually the most comfortable bed I have slept in on my travels. There was free water and bread and the lady cleaned constantly everyday, so you knew everything was clean. Lots of cats , but I love cats. Even though it was super basic, I really enjoyed my stay here :)

    Very lovely hostel with a chilled out vibe with staff that are friendly and willing to help you with any advice. There is a small kitchen to do your own cooking which is really helpful. I was only here for one night but to me the location didn't seem that great. I really enjoyed staying here but I like a more social atmosohere so personally this wasn't for me.

    Pretty good bang for buck! Proper bed, toilet and there is air conditioning too. I stayed in a family room. Simple breakfast of toast and jam/ butter. The only set back may be that garbage was not cleared out and the owner was pretty MIA but besides that, everything else is good enough and for the price its a great place to stay. Do rent a car though as it is not very near the beach. You can rent a car from the airport for about MYR 200 (4 seater).

    Dorm door does not lock so did not feel very secure leaving our items there (however there are some cctv cameras in the reception/hall). There were many mosquitos in the bathroom. On the plus side the dog was friendly.

    This is a super cheap hostel for Langkawi, which is quite an expensive place to stay. As such it’s very basic - the rooms were nice and felt very clean, but the bathrooms not so much. Quite often there weren’t any staff around and there were only a couple of other people staying while we were there so the atmosphere was very quiet. The toaster was broken so breakfast was just bread. Overall it’s a cheap place to sleep, probably wouldn’t spend too much time there.

    The whole place had a disgusting smell that was a mixture of sewage and cat urine. The dorms did not lock, but fortunately there were lockers as long as you had your own key. Two of the bunk beds in my dorm including my own had been created by nailing/fixing two single beds together over one another. Facilities were poor and dirty in the "kitchen" area. Sinks dirty. Cats everywhere. Social area made of pallets with dirty pillows. It was cheap, but I mean come on, this was disgusting.

    Don’t stay here if you want to sleep at all! The private rooms have an open section on the windows so you can hear everything outside. Other guests were being loud around 10:30pm so I asked reception if they had a “quiet time” like most hostels, they didn’t. Then people started talking loudly outside at 1am until we had to ask them to be quite. And to top if off there’s a rooster next door that made noise from 4am. Fair walk to the main strip, would not recommend staying here.
