    We loved our stay in Gecko, all the staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic but have everything you need. The bar area has a good vibe and the food and drinks are all really good. The staff are always ready to help you out when you need or also just for a chat. The location was perfect - 5 min walk to the beach but also away from the main touristy street so it’s peaceful but still lively. We would definitely come back here!!

    Gecko is in a great spot - I wasn’t feeling too sociable all the time in Langkawi, but if I was it would’ve been easy to chat to people and have drinks at the bar on site. Staff were all very friendly and helpful... although I guess the manager was a little stern on some of the staff. Anyway, my stay was enjoyable and loved all the cats! You pay a small price and so should expect nothing too fancy. Would recommend to others :)

    All very reasonable for the cheap price. Very short walk from the main strip and the beach. My only suggestion is they add hooks or something in the bathroom you have somewhere to hang your clothes and towel when you shower. The stall I used had a really dusty shelf that needed cleaning... but really, that's my only complaint! Very friendly staff. Comfy bed. They make great iced coffees!

    This place would be perfect if the beds were better! I stayed in the dorm and the beds had really uncomfortable mattresses and beds that creaked every time you moved. The dorm had no lock to the room, although lockers were available. The main area of the hostel is great, a lovely shaded garden with lots of space to sit, a TV, bar and lots of gorgeous cats and chickens! Great atmosphere and the staff were really lovely!

    Very Good

    Pros: good location, a short walk to the beach and main strip of shops; room is spacious and nice little terrace outside to sit at with table and chairs Cons: wifi is very weak in rooms closest to entrance; no toilet paper in room (I know it’s a budget place but I’d expect toilet paper at the very least); Other: bring repellent because there are a lot of mosquitoes in the rooms; when you book you are only quoted a price for a room with fan, then they try to up sell you the ac which is extra

    Room wasn't very clean, cigarette butts in the bathroom which was an ensuite so looks like it hadn't been cleaned from the previous guest. Wifi was patchy in my room but worked ok in the communal area. Lock on the door left a lot to be desired. However good points only a short walk from the Main Street and beach. Communal area with all the plants had a nice feel to it. I wouldn't recommend this place there are a lot of other places nearby for the same or less money that are better value.

    The room without aircon was sweltering hot and it wasn’t very clear that our room didn’t have aircon when we booked. Rundown and basic room that wasn’t overly clean. The locks on the room were pretty c*** and could easily be broken into. Staff were friendly however this place didn’t have the social atmosphere we expected.

    Firstly, we expected AC in our rooms as we booked a private room and the description states AC. However, when we arrived the receptionist said it was an extra 85RM (what we paid for the room for two nights). The fan in the room was terrible and we didn’t sleep for two nights. We saw people coming out of the bathroom smoking. There were cockroaches in the bathroom. The receptionist seemed utterly clueless and high as a kite at times. We do not recommend. DO NOT STAY HERE.

    여기 진짜 최악이에요. 청결도 엉망이고 개미도 득실거리는데다가 화장실과 방을 잇는 벽이 뚫려있어서 냄새도 그대로 납니다. 거실에서 외부로 뚫려있는 창문은 애초에 창문이 아니라 그냥 창살 같은거라 아예 닫히지도 않아요. 하도 방이 별로라 중간에 취소하려고 갔더니 캔슬이라는 말 듣자마자 남자 말레이시아 직원이 길길이 날뛰면서 다짜고짜 환불 못해준다고 화를 어찌나 내던지요. 억지도 정도가 있지 대화를 무조건 소리 지르고 화 내는 걸로 시작하는게 영업 전략인가 보더군요. 무엇보다 장부 관리를 거지같이 해서, 자기들이 첫날 방값을 다 받은 사실도 모르고 무조건 돈 다시 내라길래 무슨 소리냐며 돈 냈다고 했더니, 갑자기 보스에게 전화를 하더니 해결됐다고 급 가라고 하더라고요. 보여주기식 쇼에 거짓말에 무례하기까지. 최악 중에 최악입니다. 가지마세요. Intractable staff, dirty rooms, severally deficient security, and no bug screens.
