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...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

The ocean view rooms are the only way to go. I can't express how happy my heart was to wake up to the sunrise! Went there on a couples getaway with our friends and everyone had a blast. The hotel deck is perfect for afternoon lounging and there are boat trips often to nearby islands for swimming. The rooms had...

Room is as seen in photos provided, serve the purpose of very basic sleep need. Shared bathroom consider clean. Dining place is very comfortable and breakfast is very delicious. Sunset seaview is super nice and best to have a cup of wine with it. Overall quite a good experience to stay here

I booked a tube room with Garden View. Not as fantastic as having a sea view room but it is good enough. Ample benches, bean bags for you to lie down to enjoy the breathtaking view. Nothing is nearby except a small mamak stall selling noodles until late night. It is good to rent a car to travel around. I...
