    I had a great time at the hostel. The owner is super nice, very helpful and can give good tips (tours, food, party). The hostel is accessible from the airport in a few minutes and is located near the beach in a quiet area. Good starting point for tours.

    I was both a guest and a volunteer here and it was a great stay :) Kiru is so friendly and makes you feel super welcome, introducing you to all her friends and her knowledge of the island is so helpful. Its not near the touristy bits so there's cheap food about and you see a bit more authenticity of the island. It's also great value for money. Thanks kiru!!! Very memorable stay

    Brilliant place to stay! I travelled to Langkawi alone for the Ironman triathlon...I was welcomed at the airport by Kiruba, the hostel owner who organised food and taxi as soon as I landed! The hostel is a characterful place with a balcony overlooking the ocean and with some great local Malaysian restaurants nearby! Highly recommend if you want a more local experience but still close to the airport and tourist strip. Also if youre doing a triathlon, Kiruba and her volunteers will cheer you on!

    We had a wonderful night stay at the Mermaid & Unicorn Guesthouse. Kiru was very friendly and gave us plenty of suggestions to make our stay even better. The guesthouse itself was clean and quiet. It is close to a beach but unfortunately we were not able to swim because it was low tide at the time. There are some really good restuarants walking distance. We loved the location especially because it was the middle of all the locations that we wanted to explore. so taking grab was fast and cheap.

    Owner of the guesthouse was absolutely amazing! so accepting and outgoing, she really made our stay feel homey. She took all the guest out to the night markets to indulge on the delicious food offered by the culture. She shared so much knowledge about the food, island and the rest of the country! The other guest here were also very lovely and friendly. Definitely wish we could stay longer!

    We stayed at Mermaid and Unicorn for 3 nights. Kiru was amazing. She was kind and would tell us about events on the island and volunteering we could do for a few hours. She was able to rent us a motorbike as the location was between the main city and nature things. The room was as the pictures. If you're looking for frill and fancy you won't find it here. It's a basic accommodation and for the price, it was everything we needed. It was low season when we came so I can't speak for the atmosphere.

    Kiru the owner of the guest house was absolutely fantastic. She was friendly and was always available to be of an assistance. The community that stay there is outgoing and the place itself is well worth the price. Not to mention the pier that is less than 3 km away.

    Did not want to leave any reviews before our last night accident. Place is running by a single lady we can overlook everything but her temper. She was constantly cursing previous guests and dare to scream at us for no reasons. Trash was taking out only before new people came, rats were freely walking, shared toilet was dirty for days. After she got mad cuz of music(no one heard it but her) she turned off WiFi and took light plugs.
