Rainbow lodge is okay, I don't really get why it's no 1 on here though. The rooms are basic, not overly clean but fine. It's not a very sociable hostel either as no one really sits and has a drink in the bar. This made it a bit boring for us as we were in a triple room so didn't... More

Stayed here for 3 days during school holidays. Fan room was only rm40-00 for single. Room had attached bath and spacious room. Overall clean with toilet paper and towel provided free of charge. Staff was friendly and they offer all tours packages,bicycle and motor rental. Has a cafe which serves beers and food with reasonable price.

I took a traditional wood house with modern amenities. The house was big... More

Moved here a terrible experience next door at Huda Inn (the manager lied to us) and were very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are basic but clean, and the staff are very friendly and eager to help. Great location not too far from the main road and the beach, and cool common area to hang around in when you don't want... More

This room stands out for me as exceptionally good value for money, with great service and a convenient location. I would totally recommend it for a travelling family – it felt like a real ‘pit stop’ after all the tiny rooms we’ve had to squash into. We hired a ‘wooden house’ style bungalow. It had a large bedroom with a... More

I've had an amazing 5 days at Rainbow Lodge, but I think that's because we were with a really nice group of people. The place isn't really a big deal, it wasn't always clean and we had no lockers in our dorm. That's why one of us got robbed while we were asleep. It's not safe at all, anyone who... More

I only stayed for one night. Room was nice enough. No bin in room tho. Had a little pathed space outside room with a hammock to lie in. It was very hot though at night and I had opted for a fan room. I think with children or if staying for a long time air con room would be a... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. The staff are always friendly and helpful it's a pleasure to stay here. It's within easy walking distance of the beach and nightlife and the price is good. I wouldn't stay anywhere else

I've been in one of the houses for one month (but they have also several other solutions). Nice place, peacefull, at walk-distance from the beach and anything in Pantai Cenang. Very kind and helpful staff; friendly cats around. They have also a canteen, but you can easily find better solutions about food... ;-)

Been coming to and revisiting Langkawi frequently since 2007 (on all occasions like public holidays, extended weekends or weekdays) and I would always swing by Rainbow Lodge for few nights. The compound it occupies has been expanded with new wings of bungalows towards the backside over the course of several years. Backpackers usually mingle at the front porch in the... More
