The cleanest and best-smelling sheets and towels I had during my whole Asia-trip. The huts are really amazing, super clean and comfy. The showers and toilets...well, you're in Asia and your in a hostel. Not much to expect. It's pretty close to the airport, but it's okay, noisewise. To get to the Walking street or to the closest beach it... More

I was suppose to stay in Langkawi for 1 night only so I selected tubotel. You are just paying for Location of the hotel as this is just located on beach, breakfast menu was good, but its quite expensive to stay 1 night for 128/Malaysian Ringgit (garden facing/room not facing beach) and 228/Malaysian Ringgit for beach facing is a big...

I write this as I watch the magnificent sunset from Tubotel's deck area, listening to the calming music that's in the background. I love this place and feel sad to leave. Yes it's a little away from the main town area, but that for me was one of the main attractions! So tranquil and a nice escape from the main... More

I stayed at Tubotel for 2 nights. I was really disappointed with the hotel that really is a hostel. I have travelled extensively all over the world from tents to hostels to home stays and Tubotel unfortunately isn't good value for money. As a concept its bang on, but in reality it's an expensive burden. I stayed in a garden... More

We stayed in one of the tubs with garden view. Although they are small, you do not need more than that, because the common spaces are awesome. You have included breakfast which has been the best I have had in Asia (loved the pancakes), and also have the best view in any hostel Langkawi. May be it can be only... More

The rooms are literally just tubes and a bed, however the staff are lovely and friendly they have free pool very cheap drinks the pizzas are amazing and would recommend! But most importantly the view is absolutely stunning with great snaps of the sunset and the surroundings!!

Great place with good breakfast options which were included, Beautiful view...not on a beach but only a few minutes walk to get to one, Tube over square every time! That's the whole fun of staying here it's something different It's a quiet area but close enough to main resorts to be able to walk.

First of all, the place has the best view ever in Langkawi! I spent two nights in a garden tube. I got shown a sea side tube as well and if you´re not on a too tight budget like I was, go for it! I especially recommend that to couples! I was a solo traveller at this time but if... More
