My girlfriend and I overall had a great stay at Rainbow Lodge. The rooms are big and clean, the people are friendly and relaxed. It feels like quite a sleepy place actually which suits us down to the ground.
They also seem to have some of the cheapest prices on tours and onward travel so it's a big winner.

Room Tip: Your probably going to need an AC room as it is stinking hot here

Staff are friendly and helpful and you are able to book pretty much anything at reception. Laid back feel and a nice vibe. Rooms are basic but clean and have everything you need for a few day's stay, the hammocks outside are a nice touch. You can also pay a bit extra and stay in one of the mini bungalows which are lovely. Only thing I would change is to upgrade to an aircon room, our room was fan only and was boiling hot in April. Overall a good stay.

Really helpful friendly staff here we arrived and they only had a very small room available in a dark corridor but as soon as one of the bigger fan rooms became available the next day we moved into it and very nice it was. Cafe serves excellent food and cold beer - what more could you ask for! Staff very efficient at organising onward travel

The rooms are basic, but perfect for your needs in accommodation. I stayed in a fan room and then upgraded to an air conditioning room. Breakfast can be bought on site at the cafe and is cheap and delicious. I would recommend this place to anyone staying in Langkawi for great budget accommodation.

Stayed here twice this year on our extended SE Asia travels. For the first visit at the end of January we had one of the little bungalows with our own basic kitchen, really useful for a 2 weeks stay. For our second shorter stay we had one of the large AC rooms.
What we really love about the place is the casual,laid back feel, It suits us fine that the boys don't come in to tidy the rooms unless asked.- If you need anything, just ask and they are more than willing to help. As we always travel with silk sleeping sheets the bedding arrangement that so many people comment on has never been a problem to us.
Although Rainbow Lodge always seems to be recommended as a "young" persons place, I guess that at least 50% of the guests are, like us, older people, looking for somewhere more relaxing. Indeed during the years we have been staying we see many returning guests.

Room Tip: Don't stay here and expect 5* accommodation and amenities. Bring your own top sheet if you pefer...

I stayed here two nights with my husband in a a/c room.
The rooms were basic but clean with all the amenities you needed.The room only costed £14 a night which i think was good value although this is because you are not on the beach front. However the beach is only 5-10 minutes walk.Staff also very helpful and free wifi in reception.

We have just stayed here for 2 nights and found the staff to be very friendly and the rooms were simple but good. We had an extra mattress put in to a double room as there were three of us rather than taking beds in the dorm. This worked out well for us. The room had two single beds, a fan mounted on the wall, a sink in the room and then the bathroom had the shower and toilet in. Remember to remove the toilet paper from this room while you take your shower! We were given a towel and blanket but as there was no top sheet we all used our sleep sheets.

There is free wifi in the common area and the staff were very helpful with arranging an island hopping trip and our onward travel to the Cameron Highlands.

We followed the sign down the road to the Lodge but then thought we must have gone the wrong way. It is further down the right fork in the road, behind another building which at first glance looks to be the last down that road.
