We paid very little money for such a great location, 35 RM each for a double room. You get exactly what 8€ can buy, which is a bed. The accommodation is not terrible, but I wasn't expecting more for that amount of money that's why I wasn't disappointed with my decision at the end. The double room was ok, the... More

I really am keen on Captain's Longhouse. It is definitely meant for a younger, crowd on a tight budget, but that is not code for "cheap" or "dirty." In fact, Captain's is quite clean and the beds are cozy. Dorm beds run around 30 RM a night. The best part of Captains is that t is on it's own corner... More

This was the most I've shelled out for a hotel room in Malaysia and was really disappointed with what my money got me. I paid 70RM for a small room with a rubbish mosquito net. The rooms also open up at the top onto the dorms and other rooms so you can hear people very clearly and if they wished... More

It is a really nice hostel on the small charming island of Kapas. Dormitory for 30rm or a room for 70rm. This longhouse is extremely well decorated, clean and confortable. Beautiful terrace and clean shady garden with plenty of couches, armchairs, hammocks. You can spend the day easily swimming in the clear water and relaxing under coconut trees. Cayaks available...

The captains longhouse is styled after the longhouses of borneo. It has 8 rooms ( sleeps 2-3 people each ) and a dorm which sleeps about 12 people. There are also 3 beds on the verandah. It costs rm30 per head in the dorm, and rm35 per head in the rooms (min 2 people per room). Cheap for the lovely... More

A few friends and I live in the area and had been to Pulau Kapas on a day trip, and since it was convenient to KT, we decided to spend a night there (or maybe two). We decided on the Captain's Longhouse because the beach looked the nicest on that side of the jetty. Even before we got on the... More

We found this place hidden away at the end of the beach and are so glad that we did. The rooms are great value for what they are and the vibe is amazing. If you like to get out of bed and straight into a hammock then this is for you. If you want activities and need entertaining then go... More
