We stayed at a double room with A/C for 85 RM per night, fan-room was also available and about 30RM cheaper. The room was clean with a bathroom included. Each room is basically a tiny house with a porch and chairs on it and you can chat with your neighbors. Breakfast consisted of two fried eggs + toast. Best of... More

The rooms are clean and spacious and there is a decent porch area with hammock for every room which is great. Some of the staff are nice but the guy who appeared to be in charge was not so friendly. We had emailed earlier on our day of arrival to request room rates and our reply stated that it was... More

Discovered this place through a blog of someone I follow on twitter. Have never stayed in a hostel so decided to give this a try. From langkawi airport the cab charged us RM 20 to this place. We wanted to experience what a hostel would be like but couldn't go as far as a dorm room so had booked an... More

The hostel is really nice for the price, you also get a free breakfast; egg and toast which is a great extra. It's not the cleanist of hostels but for 20 riggets a night you really can't complain. The toilets and showers are ok, cold showers but I'm used to it now. The hostel beds all have walls round them... More

Stayed in the dorm for 20 a night it was simple but nice with walls and curtains separating the bunks to offer some privacy. Can't say enough about the staff though they were so friendly and helpful they really are what makes rainbow great. Even the guys who worked at the attached restaurant (different owners) were very friendly just pay... More

Rainbow was an incredible place to stay! The dorm has separate cubicals, each of them with a fan, light, electricity. I have never slept better in a dorm. The people working here are extremely nice and helpful, even if they don't seem like it at a first glance. Very nice walk to the beach!!

Stayed here during the Malaysian school holidays. All rooms booked out apart from the more expensive 120 ringgit private cabin which was nice with a separate bedroom, lounge, bathroom and kitchen area. Equipped with a tv, fridge and most appealingly for us a hammock it was lovely. However as it was above our budget we only stayed in this room... More

We paid 50 RM per night (25 for each of us) for a double fan room. The room and the bathroom were clean. They supplied towels and sheets. We preferred to use our towels but the sheets were just fine. Actually I was never bitten by a mosquito in the room, and the fan keeps the room cool enough. The... More

The location is good, near by the beach. The staff is helpful and friendly. The wifi on the other hand isn't working for most of the time. The rooms are clean en the airco is working. There is also a restaurant if you want to have breakfast, wish is not included in the room price.
