Arrived to find the reception empty. Someone did arrive but barely said a word to us and didn't even bother to remove his earphones - told us that the only room available was one of the most expensive private en-suite air conditioned room (may have been true but we only saw a couple of other guests around). We were told... More

its in an awesome location, close to everything but far enough from the main street to give it an isolated feel. 5 minute walk to the beach. the owner is the friendliest fun guy we met on our journey through malaysia. Staff are helpful and the rooms are really comfortable... we were really surprised by the free english breakfast considering... More

I stayed here for three nights but liked it so much I stayed an extra night! The staff here are some of the nicest most helpful staff I've ever had in a hostel and went above what was expected of hostel staff. Ray drove me to the airport when my taxi didn't show&introduced me to a lot of nice restaurants... More

Awesome stay. Friendly owner. cheap rate. large common area. great atmosphere among guests. What i like the most about Rumours is the location, Alittle hidden but just the way i like it. Only few mins walk to Cenang beach and Underwater world. Simple clean cheap dorms.

If you go to Langkawi, Pantai chenang area is one of the best places to stay, and definitely Rumours guesthouse its a really good option to stay at. Close to the beach and main restaurants in the area. Good environment, clean and safe.

Dorm rooms basic (private rooms they have are much better) and beds not great but it didn't matter one bit. Nicest staff I met on my travels, great common area with pool table, soft drink bar (you can bring your own alcohol), wide screen TV with film nights and hammocks under the palm trees. They offer discount rates for longer... More

Enjoyed staying here. It's not the flashiest place but then you don't pay exorbitant rates either. The staff are very friendly, breakfasts are good and the dining area nice and relaxed. It is getting rather dated which is fine but could be a bit cleaner. Had to ask to have bathroom cleaned but they were very good and did it... More

I really liked this place, maybe because of all the cats that were running around, but also because of where it was situated and the friendly staff. Stayed in the big dorm for one week and there were never any problems. But they should really oil up the screechy beds...

I loved the place. It as a perfect location and really friendly staff and the owner mamu is always looking for you to be happy and feel welcome. My only concern is, that the showers and toilets need to cleaned more often. Fill up the toiletpaper, check that the showerdoors can be closed and so on. also they need some... More

Stayed for 3days/2nights. Perfect location, 5 mins walk to the beach, duty free shop, restaurant, bar, etc. Staffs are all super friendly and helpful. Stayed in their air-cond room with queen bed and private bathroom. Room is clean and comfortable. love the environment. Definitely will stay there again.
