Not recommended for young children as guests tend to be 20-35 years old and whilst we were there, many of the guests tended to drink a lot! Notwithstanding this, our 12 year old was made to feel at home. The accommodation is OK , close to the beach, restaurants etc. Free tea, coffee and drinking water and an honesty system... More

So glad we looked prior to booking. Rooms extremely basic and dated. Communal areas unappealing. Found the owner arrogant too. Position would have been convenient if half decent.

It's everybody's expectation including me myself to pay USD12 - USD20 and to get the best, spacious room with latest tech amenities and designer's signature room. However as everywhere in the world, when you pay peanut you get monkey. Please compare our rates with other accommodations listed in this website. We opened this place 12 years ago to accommodate travelers... More

We stayed at Zackry's Guest House for 4 nights, despite a mixed bags of reviews. We were not disappointed! The location is fine, you can hire mopeds or even a car nearby, if you want to visit further afield. If not, the area has plenty, bars/restaurants, massage/spa places and the local beach for relaxing. We loved the honesty system Zackry... More

Great place to stay and meet people, self service facilities available (share kitchen, drinking water, cold drinks etc) as well as motorbike rental, cheap breakfast available and weekly bbq. If you are travelling on your own or as a group, this is a great meeting place and the staff are friendly and helpful, but everything is setup as self service.... More

Due to the May 1st weekend some other hotels were fully booked, so we ended up here. It was our 3rd or 4th choice based on Lonely Planet. LP describes the place as a 'family' hostel. They couldn't have gotten it more wrong. On seeing our toddler, one of the owners started telling us off: "didn't you notice on our... More

Surprisingly guests hated it so much that they extended the stay for 2 more nights. It was not during 1st may and there was plenty of accommodation in Langkawi. LP has never described this place as "family" hostel. It is written as "This is a family-run hostel and is not a family hostel." They booked through our website and it... More

I had reasonably high expectations of this place after reading reviews but was sorely disappointed! Bad impressions straight off: nobody on reception so rang a bell and out came this old man who I thought was going to get the actual receptionist but he was in fact Zackry. He didn't say a SINGLE word to us, pretty much grunted and... More

I corrected guests that the intimidating sign is :"When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable." The fact that you think this is intimidating just a perfect sign that you were not belong here. However we are still confuse to the fact that the... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay here, helpful and knowledgable staff, made us feel at home. Very trusting with the honesty box for the beers and internet which is very very nice as some places make us backpackers feel like criminals!
