Whatever you do, please don't stay at gecko! The only good thing about this place is the location, but it is surrounded by a bunch of other places in the same price range (daddy's guesthouse, cenang home stay etc). Our room wasn't the worst, but the owner is the worst person I have come across after 2 years backpacking. Rude... More

The place is nice and I stayed a few days there. But a few days later I realized that my body was completely full of bedbugs bite. my friend stayed on the same place but he hadn't any problems. So, its better not to sleep in the dorm!

After seeing Gecko Guesthouse at the top of a few lists for hostels in Langkawi, I thought I'd give it a shot. When I arrived I was checked in by a nice but uninformative staff member. They brought me to a bunk in the dorm, made me put my own sheets on the bed and I ended up having to... More

I stayed here for a week and enjoyed myself the whole time. Upon arrival I checked out a bunch of hostels. Theres a bunch right in this neighborhood, but Gecko is definitely the best. Cheap drinks, niec large shared living area to hang out and meet other travelers, 3 minute walk from a beautiful part of the beach, no complaints.... More

Rooms are average, but the bathroom was far below average. I would not recommend staying here. Although, their cafe is very nice, and they provide good breakfasts which are not included in the room price. Unfortunately, the Internet connection is poor. Also, there is a big mango tree and you can have free mangoes from it!

I only stayed here because everything else was booked due to the Muythai competition and the Water-festival. The owner was gone, so the staff had free reign to do whatever they wanted...and they did. Several of the staff were very rude when relating to guests and the staff monopolized the TV (making it difficult for the guests to watch anything).... More

Room very basic , bed was comfortable, shower is pipe coming out the wall, cold water only. Water from shower is running outside through the hole in the wall. Windows broken , for 55 RM without AC and 70 with AC, you can get for this price better deal in guest houses around. Breakfast not included in the price. Bad... More

Walked in and tried to speak to the lady who owns/runs the place explaining I'd made a booking for one bed. Was spoke to like a piece of garbage. Told her what I thought of her and left quite happily. Think she got out of the wrong side of the bed that morning. Maybe she damped down. Old hag of... More

5 stars.... If you get a double room in their huts; only 3 stars though if you don't! We arrived as a couple in Jan 2014 and the only room available was a double with a shared bathroom. The owner was happy to move us into a room with a private bathroom the next day when she had availability. The... More

I enjoyed my time here at this hostel - the social area is a nice outdoor area, with the bugalows set around it. The hostel has a great vibe and staff seemed friendly enough. The food was good, and they do these yummy chocolate shakes. The location is great, really near the beach. The twin room itself we were in... More
