“Great budget guesthouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

I have been to Langkawi every year now since 1999. I have been staying at Rainbow Lodge each year. The thing about this place is the owners are upgrading this place each year. Now they have new paint at the rooms and more greenery. Real chill out place with good service. Cant ask anything more for what we pay. Recommend fully.

Room Tip: Fan rooms are only rm45-00 with attached bath. Its ok at night

A bit further from the main road than you might expect. Rooms nothing fancy but okay for what you pay. For dinner you should go elsewhere. Free wifi in the public area. There's a Rainbow Lodge on Pulau Penang as well, even more value for money in my opinion.

you get what you can expect from a 40rm room. a bed, a bathroom including hairs from the former guests, a flexible fan on the ceeling and two chairs on the terrace - nothing more.
could be cleaner, also for just 40 rm. real backpackers will love it, other people not

A standard fan room without hot shower is good enough for budget travellers. I also enjoyed the breakfast here with reasonable price. The location is great, just a few minute walk to Cenang beach.

Wifi was not easy to access when I was in the room. The owner and staff are nice and helpful.

Stayed here for 4 nights a d the price was great, 70 for a AC room. We also hired a moped for 30 a day which was a great way to discover the island.
Staff were very friendly, chilled and helpful.
Mattress wasn't the most comfortable but overall, romm was great. Even had a DVD player!!!

I cant say it was love at first sight when we saw the rooms, but the price is unbeatable and the rooms are really clean and calm. The owner is really nice and helpful, he helped us plan our activities and book different tours and even ferry and bus tickets back to KL.
The bar is really nice and has cheap beer and really good breakfast (not included in the price but its really cheap)
We also met amazing people there so I would definitely recommend that hostel to people who don't mind having basic accommodation and save some money for other activities.

This was a really nice lodge near the beach. It's cheap and the rooms are nice.
Also the location is perfect and not isolated (we thought it was). Wifi only in the lounge-area.

The only thing: we wanted to have dinner twice, but almost nothing was available (only two things from the menu), that could be better..

We stayed in the Rainbow Lodge in Penang as well, which is from the same owner. They can arrange this stay for you in Penang. That Rainbow Lodge is good as well!
