“Very Good Cheap, Basic Accomodation, Friendly Owner, Cute Cats”
Reviewed 27 February 2011

We stayed here whilst on a stopover in Langkawi. We were on quite a budget so wanted somewhere cheap to stay, but wanted a nice clean place that was in a good location. Compared to other guest houses we looked at in the Cenang Beach area, this was a great find!! For the price we had a cute little hut of our own, that although basic with cold shower, you could see that Hiroko the owner took pride in making the room look nice. She was so friendly for our entire stay, and we often sat to have a drink with her.
She has lots of cute cats, and loves taking care of her garden and will show you some of the flowers she has grown. Although the place could do with some work, and is scruffy in places, all in all for the money its perfect! The rooms all have aircon, and wifi which is a bonus!
You can even have a cup of tea brought to your room in the mornings which is a lovely touch. I very much enjoyed my stay here!

I have a very positive experience of staying at this lovely guesthouse. I stayed there during the end of June 2010 and found the place perfect for the backpackers – very friendly staff. It’s a very calm place and best value for the reasonable price. The rooms are clean but there is a problem which the management of this place need to address is that there is a need to replace the electrical fitting which looks quite old and needs to be replaced with modern one! In addition, there are no blankets provided so sometimes, it gets a bit chilly :)

We stayed one night at shirin due to problems with the immigration.
Its not the most fancy hotel we have stayed in, but its clean and very cheap.
The best is the very friendly owner who took good care of us when we struggling with
the immigration. She even drove us to the airport because we were late.
Its located conveniently near everything, and a few minutes walk to the beach.
Wifi was free and fast.
I give it my best recommendations

The owner is very friendly and helpful. Room is nic. But not all the rooms with hot shower. If you are looking for a low cost staying place with good service, this is the one.

we enjoyed our stay here,.first of all we stayed in the 3 bed apartment as the first part of our stay there was 6 of us, the apartment is fairly basic but the price we negotiated 150rm a night was very reasonably and the accomodation comfortable with A/C .after the 4 friends left us we moved into the bungalows which were very basic but very cheap so no complaints . the owners are nice , have a motorbike to rent and books to borrow.
the location is good in the centre of pantai cenang ,just across the road from the beach.
