This place is exactly why you need as a backpacker. Rooms are cheap & basic but they have the essentials - comfy bed & balcony to relax on. The rooms with attached bathroom are a little away from the bar so you can get a decent sleep. Staff are easy going. It's near the town for cheap eats and the...

We stayed there for 7 nights which is 3 nights longer than we expected:-) But the place is kind of magical and you have to stay and enjoy it a bit longer:-) Comfortable rooms, great and helpful staff, tasty and big breakfasts, cool bunch of travellers all the time hanging around and cats everywhere:-) Sincerely recommended!!!

We loved this place! Cheap, 45 RM for a double room. Very nice atmosphere, helpful staff, perfect location, only a few minutes to the beach. And the bartender Roy is great! You can buy a beer for 4 RM and even cheaper on happy hour 😀

Stayed one night, owner is very nice and helpful, guesthouse serves breakfast until like 1pm which is handy, and the bar is open til midnight as well.. They have really nice eating& drinking area like in a jungle style. Perfect for budget travelers.

This place offers very good value for money, the small bungalows are spacious, clean and so comfy. The staff was always friendly and helpful. The hostel runs a bar and in the evenings all guests gathered to have some drinks and talks. During happy hour a beer is 3RM and a Longdrink 7RM, we never had such good and cheap...

The staff and atmosphere were pretty good. We had a good time but someone needs to take a look at the cat situation. There are half dead cats sprawled all over the place. They're all infected with something or other and are allowed to spread themselves on all the tables. The rooms are pretty disgusting as well. There are no...

We had a really fun stay here and met loads of realy interesting people who we spent most of our time with in Langkawi, the bar with its happy hour and generally cheap drinks helped to facilitate this atmosphere. The state of the place was terrible though. We'd intended to stay in Dorms as its not the cheapest place to...

Has so much potential but fails to deliver Decided to stay here despite a few negative reviews, thought they just couldn't handle a little noise No, there is WAY more than a little noise at night. There are 5-10 locals/staff(?) that hang out in the common area. We sat down to have a few drinks but couldn't hear each other...

Great location tucked away from main strip just enough to not hear all the noise at night. Round the corner from laundry service. Quirky and cool, laid back vibe from the place. Staff aren't very attentive but the cheap price and basic/clean place makes up for it. Soooooo many cats, roosters are here too. We stayed in a private room...
