    My default place to stay in Langkawi. Clean, comfortable, good value for money, sociable bar area and a few minutes walk from the beach. Can't go wrong!

    One of my favourite hostels I've ever stayed in. We booked for two nights and stayed for one week and even returned afterwards as the social vibe was wonderful. Staff were so friendly, cats are lazing around everywhere and the hostel make amaaaazing coffees. Can't wait to come back!

    I enjoyed my stay at Gecko and would stay again. The place has a large social area with a pond and lots of friendly cats around. I met many cool people here. The staff were cool except one guy (zero interest in the customers). Daniel is great member of staff there, everyday greeted with a smile and a coffee, just what you need in a place like this. The social area could do with more fans, beanbags and some hammocks to really create a chill zone. Maybe a kitchen area to make your own drinks.

    Lovely people, very relaxed and chilled. Music playing in the background but came in quiet season so not many people to chill with in the bar but it is so so close to the buzz of everything that it is perfect. They have lots of recommendations on where to eat and what to do, highly recommend for anyone for such a good price too. Showers were cleaned regularly, but just to let people know that the rooms with no AC get like a sauna!!

    Really cool little place for backpackers - right next to the beach, just down the road from the strip and a minute away from a scooter rental shop. The people in this place made it such an amazing experience for myself and my friend; having come just as a duo we were so happy with how we were welcomed and the number of great friends we made in Gecko. While the nightlife in Langkawi really isn’t great, Gecko was such a festive, lively place when night came. Staff are amazing, especially Cook.

    Very Good

    20 Apr 2019
    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

    Stayed here in July and two phones were stolen from the dorms the day before I arrived. Dorm doors were not locked. Decent location for food and the beach.

    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.
