We had a room for four persons, from the outside it looked a bit weird but it was just perfect from the inside. The terrace is great and the breakfast is delicious!!!!!!♡♡ Also the staff is very helpfull and friendly and the location is perfect and close to the beach!

Good location with great views. Nice staff. Good breakfast. Good facilities. Dorm room was comfortable. Taxi to airport takes around 10-15 mins. To Cenang beach its a 15 min walk, otherwise rent a bike and everything is comfortable. Definitely staying again at this place and would recommend to others too!!

This is 100% a backpacker hotel, yes there are some ocean front rooms (tubes) which do have a spectacular view but that's about as far as the luxury goes. I paid a very expensive rate believing it to be amazing but besides the view and the excellent breakfast there's nothing good about it. The shared bathrooms are disgusting and faulty,...

Lovely place but make sure you spend the extra for a sea front tube rather than the garden view ones as they are dark damp and not very nice. Breakfast was really good and staff were extremely helpful and lovely :) would stay again!

Our 4 bed dorm in a shipping container was awesome. The storage fit our travel backpacks, they provided locks for the lockers, an air conditioning unit, and each bed had its own power point and light. Sheets and towels were clean - and the breakfast choices were mostly delicious. Only downfall was the very outdated (and dirty) communal bathrooms. Location...

Perfect place to kick back and watch the sun set behind the mountains on the islands next to Langkawi... The hangout area's are nice with great view as mentioned above. You can order pizza from the bar until 11 and a cold beer can be bought from the machine outside. Good value for money. A bit far from the town...
