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.

This place was really great. The location was good: near to the beach, in the center of chanang with bars and restaurants around the corner. Besides, the staff was really friendly, they wanted to help and inform you about anything. Breakfast was good too. The room was big, with a terrace, refigurator and really good AC. It costed 80 ringgit... More

The rooms were clean but overpriced. The most expensive rooms I had in Malaysia in 3 Months. The wifi didn't work. The restaurant is supposedly not part of the guest house but the owner is terrible. All the guest house is are the rooms and the restaurant. So I consider the restaurant a part of the guest house. So my... More

We stayed in a double fan room which was very basic but clean. Unfortunately the mattress wasn't any good, feeling every spring inside. No Wi-Fi in the room, however available in the spacious reception area. Calm, close to beach, friendly people, all by all a good value for budget travel.

There are definitely two sides to Rainbow Lodge. We were booked for two nights but a strike of luck meant we made the trip from Krabi in one day so added a third night. The first night was in a twin fan room (4R) which was pretty average. The fan was good but the beds were pretty bad. The bathroom,... More

Even though we booked short time ahead only, still had two rooms available. No issue with changing a room to have us closer together. owner is very and easy going, no problems with change orders, taxiing to the airport, suggesting places, renting scooter for half day only. Even though not directly at the beach, still easy to reach in five... More

I'll start with the good. Good location, nice common area, cheap rates. Simple accommodation you'd expect for 22 RM (dorm). They rented motorbikes for a fair price and made it simple without requiring passports. Lockers are provided. Staff was friendly. The bad: My biggest problem was booking transportation. They called and booked a ticket on the ferry to Penang for... More
