Dorm rooms basic (private rooms they have are much better) and beds not great but it didn't matter one bit. Nicest staff I met on my travels, great common area with pool table, soft drink bar (you can bring your own alcohol), wide screen TV with film nights and hammocks under the palm trees. They offer discount rates for longer... More

Enjoyed staying here. It's not the flashiest place but then you don't pay exorbitant rates either. The staff are very friendly, breakfasts are good and the dining area nice and relaxed. It is getting rather dated which is fine but could be a bit cleaner. Had to ask to have bathroom cleaned but they were very good and did it... More

I really liked this place, maybe because of all the cats that were running around, but also because of where it was situated and the friendly staff. Stayed in the big dorm for one week and there were never any problems. But they should really oil up the screechy beds...

This was the perfect hostel to stay at to be close to Cenang beach, it's a 5minute walk to the beach. The price of a night in the dorm reflects what you pay for, a clean bed even a towel, a shared shower and bathroom which are very basic but work, and a great breakfast with real coffee! The owner...

We stayed at this guest house for three days during Summer '14. Although it is located in the only touristic town in Langkawi - you really feel like being in the middle of the island surrounded by nature. Just mind the mosquitoes. We got one of the double bedrooms with private bathroom. It is a traditional Asian kind of bathroom... More

A nice value hostel with helpful staff. We used it as a base to ride around the island. Near the beach but not sea view. Need to cross a street. Not amazingly clean surrounding but good for the price. No more kitchen in hostel but lots of restaurant around
