Seaside view is a must! Spectacular view at the sea tubes. At our opinion, the other tubes are not our favourite eventhough there is a lovely social lounge area. The breakfast is the perfect way to start your day (different teasty and good choices possible) and great, friendly host. You need a scooter or car, otherwise you will not enjoy... More

The (seaview) room is very small, but the view is fantastic! And I truly believe if you pick this place for your stay in Langkawi instead of other resorts or home-stay (which are probably cheaper with more facilities), you're attracted to the unique design of this tubotel (the concrete tube!) and the view! If you're looking for something different, and... More

Enjoyed the novelty experience of the Tubotel - the tubes themselves were very comfortable with their own air conditioning which was a nice touch. We had a tube with a sea view which was beautiful to wake up to in the morning. The hot tubs werent working when we were there which was a shame. Staff could have been a... More

Tubotel place is just the photo looks nice and attractive. Actually it is not so comfortable. If you are couple, then may be you may find it's sweet and fun. The room is actually very narrow and small as you know the tube size. The staff who works at Tubotel is not helpful and friendly, slow. Toilet dirty...smelly.... I will... More

Excited to stay here, who wouldn't. Sleep in a tube! However the tubes are FAR too small: inside is the exact size of the double bed, with barely a foot at the end. Luggage to be underneath bed and annoying to constantly pull out as no storage whatsoever. Lack of space also meant having to change sat down on bed... More

Spent our Chinese newyear here and it was amazing. Exactly what we were looking for. A break from the busy city with a chill breeze atmosphere. The rooms though small have a certain charm. Spring for the ocean view rooms, the sunrise/set will make your soul happy. There is a lovely deck with day beds and canapes, a great place... More

Had trouble finding the hotel at late night. When reached, we had doubt if this is the right place because the surrounding area looked like a construction site. Nonetheless, don't be fooled by the outside surroundings. Once you stepped in, the atmosphere of the hotel is beautiful and romantic. We were lucky there are not many guests during our stay.... More

We stayed 2 nights here, to be honest there's no luxury, sharing bathroom, muddy entrance road. But who cares. The concrete tube room was a fun experience and the location of it facing the sea view was excellent. Good breakfast too. Keep up the good work!

A very unique hostel in a pretty amazing part of the world. I LOVED it!! Positives: friendly staff, bike hire, computers with WiFi, beautiful surroundings, direct access to water, cafe, hot tubs, AC in rooms, clean rooms with big double beds and a truly unforgettable experience waking up to the ocean every morning! Negatives: If you have large bags you... More

We stayed 6 nights in a tube with beach views (which were amazing). In hindsight, 6 nights was too long for us, as the tube is very small and you have to squish your luggage under the bed so it gets quite dusty and is difficult to search for clothes etc in your bag. Personally, 3-4 nights would be the... More
