Our 4 bed dorm in a shipping container was awesome. The storage fit our travel backpacks, they provided locks for the lockers, an air conditioning unit, and each bed had its own power point and light. Sheets and towels were clean - and the breakfast choices were mostly delicious. Only downfall was the very outdated (and dirty) communal bathrooms. Location...

Perfect place to kick back and watch the sun set behind the mountains on the islands next to Langkawi... The hangout area's are nice with great view as mentioned above. You can order pizza from the bar until 11 and a cold beer can be bought from the machine outside. Good value for money. A bit far from the town...

It was pretty being based in front of the sea. Tube was cosy and air con in the tube worked well. However, I uncovered a spider (and a few mini ones) on the bed when we first arrived. Spent the night worrying about being bitten. Toilets are shared, male, female, toilet, shower. Toilet paper was wet, which was extremely uncomfortable...

We stayed for 2 nights. The place has a nice view of the sea. So is a good place to hang out in the evening and at night. But I still wish that we will have an extra space to stand in the room. Changing is a challenge. Bathroom is detached from the room, so it is not convenient as...

I stayed at Tubotel based on a recommendation after leaving Penang. It was quite a change of pace and had a nice relaxing vibe. I didn't stay in a tube, though they certainly looked fun. The venue itself was right on the waters edge which made for a lovely view, to sit and relax with a beer. The location wasn't...

We stayed here for our first 3 nights out of 10 total on Langkawi. First time in Langkawi so we didn't have any expectations. We arrived quite late and hadn't money for the key-deposition which we even didnt know about. But we were able to get to an ATM in the city so it was no problem. The hotel is...
