The location of this hostel is good and far from Downtown and by the beach. Very friendly owner, very social and like to tease. Dining room is huge and spacious but they need to empty ashtray since they look so disgusting. Air Conditioning is very good in the private room. The room is average clean. This hostel is not far...

The guesthouse is really cool. Stayed for 5 nights and wish I booked more. Very sociable, decent rooms, though basic, and Sam who runs the place (not the owner) was a real nice chap. He got everyone together for drinking games, let us cut our coconuts, arranged trips out for people staying there, and was always around for advice, a... More

Stayed at Zacharys guest house/hostel Jan 2015 with my husband. Had a double, air con room with basic private bathroom. Great value for money....all facilities including WiFi in good working order. Great communal area for meeting other travellers. Beer & soft drinks fridge on an honesty box system! Situated 10minutes from a lovely, unspoilt beach...amazing sunsets. Plenty of choice for...

The unhelpful and defensive response from staff in response to any negative reviews on this site really highlights their attitude and the fact they are not interested in improving as a guesthouse. Perhaps that's why the place is very run down, tired and is not clean. The owner makes strange flirty comments to the girls which is not appropriate. It... More

We are glad that the reviewer found a place that more suitable for her as pax is clearly not meant for ours. Unfortunately feudalism has no place in our place. One's hell can be another's home. And this so-called "the place is very run down, tired and is not clean" apparently has a very high occupancy rate with a generally... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, the staff (especially Sam) are amazing. They really wish to include everyone, to feel at home and at ease. The rooms are simple and the bathrooms are always very clean. The location is not where the action is, but very pleasant. It takes just 15 min walk to get to the "center". Great spot. Close... More

We stayed here in August '14. It is a nice little hostel which is clean They are efficient too, our hot water broke one day and they fixed it by the next day. It was also cheaper than a lot of the other hostels I looked at, so if you're looking for budget, this fits the bill. There was wi-fi,... More

If you want five star luxury do not stay here! If you want friendly staff, a nice chilled atmosphere and other travellers to mingle with this is your place. Owner is legendary and will go out of his way to help you. The dogs are super cute and will walk you to your rooms late at night. The rooms aren't... More

Zackry Guest house doesn't look much when you first arrive, but don't let the first impression fool you. They offer private rooms with fan or AC, and shared shower and toilet. I had a tiny single room with fan and lockable wardrobe. Both room and shower/toilet were very clean. Zackry's also have a big common room/bar, kitchen and library. Laundry... More

Zackry's is a guest house with a real backpackers vibe. It is close to the beach but a bit remote re 'city' center and bars. It is as clean as you may expect for the money you pay. Room with double bed and fan has a reasonable size, but the smell was awful, really bad. The owner, Sam, is a... More

Pax copied and pasted the same review from other web and we responded the same answer as well. The mattress is actually new and hence might have the smell from the factory. We are the cheapest option in the island. Having said that we will endeavor to make all guests' stay as comfortable as possible. We wish we could provide... More

I'm not sure what to write about my stay at Zackry's, so I'll start with the positives. The bathrooms and showers are all spotless and in full working order. The staff are all very nice, especially Sam the manager, he's laid back and keen to get people socialising. The location is a mixed bag, it's 20 mins walk from Cenang... More

Pax got bitten because he went to the my room without knocking. It is natural reaction to protect. About the common area, we removed all the couches ages ago on purpose as we learnt hard way in the past that couches and cheap backpackers especially intoxicated ones were not good combinations. Plastic ones can be easily replaced once our customers... More
