It is an overall lovely environment with great communal space, can enjoy nice breeze in the morning and night when you have nothing to do. However, don't expect more from the surrounding environment, the sea is not great and there is no beach. You will have to go to Cenang beach either by bike or car.

Me and my not-yet-confirmed gf came here for 3D2N and everything was amazing experience, especially the view so stunning which bring so many memory to us. Staying in this tube hotel just took away our mind from busy city life. The hotel is close to airport (recommend to rent bike or car) and everything just so easy to access.

Positive: Amazing breakfast and food over all, nice communal space that overlooks the ocean, friendly staff, comfortable beds, complementary towels, beautiful sunsets and inexpensive beers, management was understanding and gave a refund when we choose to leave early. Negative: Small, wet and dirty bathrooms with skin whitening soap (yuck!), half the toilets didn't flush and were clogged over the 3... More

I had a great time at the Tubotel Langkawi. I stayed in the tube rooms overlooking the sea, and it was really unique and offered a great view of the ocean with stunning sunsets. My friend stayed in the container bunk room, and it was really affordable and comfortable. I loved the outdoor verandah at the common area, with huge... More

Absolutely amazing spot! Views and communal area are great, I spent a week here! Great for relaxing and you can hire a scooter/car from the hostel to go explore the island. The Kedawang centre is about 20 min walk (ask at reception for the short cut), it's very touristy and expensive for Malaysia but go for the food courts or... More

Absolutely loved this hostel, great common area with hammocks and beds. The breakfast could not have been better and the dorms were very secure. The staff could not have been more helpful, would highly recommend staying here!

We stayed in girls dorm and it is better than we expected. It is cheap and including breakfast! They served good breakfast and the best part is we can have our breakfast beside the ocean! Their staff is lovely and the girls dorm is clean. It's only 5 minutes drive from the hotel to Cenang Beach. Will suggest you to... More

We were travelling around Malaysia and we stopped in Tubotel. At first sight, you will fall in love with the views. You can enjoy an amazing sunset in a chill out atmosphere. Regarding the room type, it is true that you can feel lack of space, and even more if you are travelling as a back packer. However, the owner,... More

We stayed in an ocean facing tube for three nights. The tube is basic but very comfortable. Similar space to a large tent but easier to move around etc. We loved our stay here, unfortunately my fiancé took unwell during our stay, the staff were very friendly, always asking how she was, even loaned my a motorbike to go to...

We had a really lovely stay at Tubotel with a sea view. They let three of us stay in one tube and split the normal price, which was lovely. The beds were perhaps not meant for three, but we made it work! The walk into the shops is honestly not too bad. Yes, it's about half an hour, but you're... More
