Booked 4 nights at this guesthouse in early November 2016. Booked through Expedia but was also available through Agoda, hotels.com etc. I arrived to check-in and was surrounded by 4 men yelling at each other. I was then told the hotel was closed and no rooms available. They promptly told me I had to figure it out myself. Wouldn't even... More

We stayed in Langkawi for a few days. Rumours Guesthouse wasn't very busy at this time so we had thw whole dorm just for us. The area is pretty quiet because the main street is about 50m away. The Air conditionning was working well and the wifi too. The staff was very friendly, especially the manager who gave us excellent... More

Price is a little bit more expensive than other guest house but it was worth to pay. And its about 3-4minutes far from the pantai cenang. And a kopitiam was not bad. Owner is kind of a friendly person He likes to answer customers question. Shower room and hot water device works very well. 조금 비싸지만 가볼만한곳이에요 방도 낣고 샤워룸도... More

This guesthouse was brilliantly situated and had very friendly, laid-back staff. I feel like it's got the makings of a brilliant hostel but so many things have just been left. The beds were ridiculously creaky, the shower door wouldn't lock and the whole place had a bit of an abandoned feel to it. It's cheap, but I reckon you could... More

Please note that the photos online do not reflect the current state of this hostel in the slightest, it appears that maybe the management has changed in the last year or so as there is no longer a kitchen/restaurant area and the common area is also not that welcoming. I did not see the private rooms so perhaps these are... More

Arrived to find the reception empty. Someone did arrive but barely said a word to us and didn't even bother to remove his earphones - told us that the only room available was one of the most expensive private en-suite air conditioned room (may have been true but we only saw a couple of other guests around). We were told... More

its in an awesome location, close to everything but far enough from the main street to give it an isolated feel. 5 minute walk to the beach. the owner is the friendliest fun guy we met on our journey through malaysia.

I stayed here for three nights but liked it so much I stayed an extra night! The staff here are some of the nicest most helpful staff I've ever had in a hostel and went above what was expected of hostel staff.

“Some of the rooms (e.g. 304) are right next to noisy shared bathrooms. Unless you want to be awaken by everyone who decides to take a shower before going to bed, avoid getting those rooms.”
