We had a brilliant four night stay at Gecko Guesthouse. They offered us a private room when we arrived which we took and it was great. Comfy bed and despite no air con there was a good fan. Location was excellent as right by the beach and the hostel can sort you out tours. We did Island Hopping which was brilliant. The hostel also does great food and everything can be made vegetarian. Chief the manager was so friendly as were all other staff members. Other great cafes which do food nearby.

Chief made the experience what it was. My new favourite hostel I’ve ever stayed at. Chief helped me with transport, where to eat, what to do and how to get to my next destination.. He is a very caring man and what a treat it was to meet him! The chef can whip you up your fave Malaysian dishes that are on the menu anytime from 3pm and they are better than some of the restaurants around! It was a great atmosphere and I would definitely stay again!
