We arrived at Rainbow Lodge a little concerned as we were bought the back roads and it looked like we were staying in farm land no where near the beach! Don't fear, in the other direction the beach is a short 10 minute walk away. This lodge is in fact in a great location. The room was big and clean... More

The included breakfast was simpel but really good! Because of the restaurant area you can make easily contacts with other guests. Stayed in the private room with aircon. Room is big... More

My partner and I absolutely loved our weeks stay at Rainbow Lodge. We couldn't fault anything! Our room was large and spacious with AC, a big bathroom with a lovely hot shower and a comfortable bed. Staff were really helpful and friendly- there was also always somebody around to help, which has not been the case all over Malaysia. The... More

We were looking for an affordable place no far from the beach which is quite hard to find. At Rainbow Lodge we got a big clean double room with attached bathroom with hot water, a/c, free wi-fi, a TV, a fridge, a terrace with a table and 2 chairs and a hammock, and complimentary breakfasts. And it's all for 80... More

We paid 50 MYR for a double room with fan and en suite bathroom, the room was clean and spacious and the shower was very good. Was also really nice to have your own little table and chairs and hammock out the front. Breakfast included (just toast and eggs with coffee or tea but still), and the door had a... More

This hostel was recommended by the lonly planet and we decided to stay here. The staff is very nice and helpful. We wanted to stay in a double with air cond. but all rooms were full. So they gave us a family room for the same price. They also have breakfast included.

At 20RM for a dorm including breakfast this place is just ideal. I liked how everyone had their own walled and curtain area in the dorm, obviously not social but you had the seating area for that. 5 mins from beach down a bit of a dirty road but what do you expect from the backpacker area. Can rent motorbikes... More
