We (family of 4) stayed here for over a week and had a lovely time. We checked out all of the local budget traveller places and this is by far the best (it's newish and clean, buildings and bedding) and it's good value too. (There are lots more guesthouses near the Gecko but this other area feels over-crowded and very noisy by comparison.) Soluna is surrounded by coconut trees, fields and locals houses and has peaceful panoramic views. It's only a 5 minute stroll into town, but if you prefer to hear the croak of frogs and birdlife to scooters and rowdy voices, then this place is for you.
BTW: The breakfast is good and better value than what you'll find in town, they don't serve it on Sundays but they'll make you a brew (we all need a day off).
Langkawi itself is heavily commercialized (not in a nice way)in the main road area along Pantai Cenang especially and this guesthouse is a pleasant contrast to all this. Here and the bars and food at Babylon in town are the best spots without doubt.
