We stayed at Gecko for 6 nights in mid August and absolutely loved it. At 20MYR a night for the dorm room it was such good value for money. Showers and toilets were newly refurbished; clean and worked well. The room was basic but the air con worked well. The best thing about Gecko was the communal area which is... More

Really nice guesthouse, descent toilets/bathrooms, lockers, close to the main street and the beach. Super common area/bar where you can meet some amazing people, travellers or locals. Bob who runs the bar in the evening is one of the nicest, chilled and welcoming person I've ever met! Thank you guys for the great stay! P.S. You should like cats though... More

The hostel itself is basic, the showers are clean and the dorm is big. It gets really hot at night and the ceiling leaked in the rain. There is only one plug for the whole dorm. But we made lots of friends here and spent our time hanging out with them in the bar area and on the beach. It... More

Had fun here - we ended up staying for over a week despite booking only a few days. You're right amongst everything on Ceneng and only a few minutes walk to many cheap eateries and the beach. Drinks very well priced (3RM beers during happy hour) and there's a good vibe in the bar. Rooms are basic but the air... More

I have been coming to Langkawi for many years now and I always stay here. The rooms and beds are comfortable and in-house restaurant and bar are very good. The place has a jungle feel about it and great to chill out.When I return to Langkawi I will stay here. Great backpacker stay.

I stayed 3 nights at the start of the low season (rainy season). I took a room (cabin) with attached bath and air conditioning. RM 75 per night. The beds (2 singles) were basic iron beds with comfortable mattresses. A fitted sheet covered the mattress and a separate single sheet was provided for comfort - no blanket, but I used... More

We paid 6€ per night and were very satisfied with the facilities and the place itself. The food is also very good and during the day they have a great offer of drinks. The wifi connection is...
