This is a good place to stay on Long Beach, especially if you're not planning on spending much time in your room. It's an average backpacker beach guest house: very basic, rickety floors, no a/c, very very thin walls, and cold showers (but it's hot outside so it's no big deal). The staff are helpful and welcoming. Clean enough and... More

Okay, it's not the cleanest and, like everywhere on the island, loses power for most of the day. Big deal. It's by a great off-the-beach snorkel spot (SOLD!), and the guys here were super friendly. The young guy w/the long hair took 4 of us out on a small boat for a good price, and it was by far the... More

I stayed with 2 more friends in one of the bungalows with a fan. Electricity stops at 7am and does not work again until 7pm. So it gets very hot. The bungalows are very old and the bathroom as well. Not very clean but it is SEA. It was very cheap though, so I guess you get what you pay.

I stayed at Moonlight chalets for 6 nights in May. When I arrived I walked all down the beach and looked at four other chalets - for my budget this was by far the best. I paid 35RM per night and was in one of the A Frames with a sea view. The room was basic but had a clean... More

I was here last week with a friend. Let's be honest, it's pretty shabby and a terribly run down place for any hostel standard in say Sydney or even Kuala Lumpur. But then again, almost all accommodation on Long Beach is very basic. Long Beach often has no electricity for many hours of the day, nor water. So you can't... More

I stayed with a friend at this chalet, sea view room at front in May 2011, and again 2-4 June 2013. in 2011, the staff were friendly and helpful, and there was a good functioning restaurant. However, on the last night we awoke to the sound of a rat gnawing the floor boards. This year we arrived at 6.30 p.m.and... More

we had a look at all chalets, this was the best. No mosquito net provided, cold shower only. But the other chalets are not better. Moonlight is the closest to the pier. No wlan available, no breakfast

Just like what the other travelers said. Its dirty, run down & in dire need of maintenance. There were four of us, we stayed at the chalet facing the sea. The aircon wasnt working, the fridge full of ants, the mattress old and dirty and the stains in the toilet..terrible. We too had an encounter with the resident rat. Not... More

There is not only negative things to say about this place. The staff is very friendly, and the food is very good, actually some of the best we tried on the island. The location is also nice. That being said, I would never ever recommend anyone to sleep at this place. We had a 5 person room with an extra... More

We stayed for 3 nights. Airconditioned double room with an extra mattress for the third person. Right on beach, nice views of beach and mountains, good restaurant, friendly and helpful staff. Place needs maintenance, but much better shape than most of the other places around Long Beach. We switched chalets after the first night to one where the airconditioning actually... More
