Great hostel close to the beach. ”

Super relaxed hostel, really nice courtyard / communal area with the reception and a bar. Lots of cats and chickens running around. Breakfast was a good price and really nice. They also had a happy hour in the evening for drinks. Super close to the beach and lots of shops and restaurants (Thirstday is great for watching the sunset on the beach with a drink or dinner, little bit pricier than others but lovely food). Grab works well in the area.

Great vibes, could use a touch up”

The place is a very old fashioned hostel, looks like how hostels were a decade or two ago. Despite this, the place remains to be very popular and has many guests all the time. The hosts were very friendly and the other guests were amicable too. I think they could do a little housekeeping like some gardening so the plants stay clear of pathways, and perhaps buying new sheets. What I liked the most were the vibes though. Also, the common area had lots of

Overall just ok”

Room was unclean. Receptionist was lovely The tables area in the center were nice although maybe because of the pandemic there wasnt quite a social scene we were hoping for. They say not to put tissues in the toilet of the shared bathroom but dont provide lids on the bins which is not very female/menstruator friendly. It needs a bit of renovation (as do many places after the effects of the pandemic)

Loved that place”

The Gecko was very good located. Near the main road but very quiet. Roy was such a nice a guy and was helping me with everything I needed. The rooms a bit „older“ maybe some curtains and small lamps near every bed would be nice. The only negative thing was, that we were only ONE plug in the 10 bed dorm which everyone had to share! This is definitely something to improve. Other then that, i was very happy there. Also a good place to meet people. Would book there again!!!

Off Beat Place”

Actually we went to Langkawi in a off season. otherwise as per the receptionist the place is full of life. Food was not available due to lack of staff. Location is decent. The place is quite near to the main shopping area. It is easily reachable & quite a known place among the tour organisers. I suggest this place.

Cheap and Full of Cats”

I don’t really like reggae anymore. I’m basically too old for these kinds of places, where it’s mosty young and attractive backpackers and self-styled bohemians, swapping travel-brag tales, and the bed was murder on my cranky back—and some lunatic turned the AC down in the middle of the night, so the dorm became a sauna of sweaty back packer steam. However, if you find yourself broke and in paradise, you could do far worse, and the cats are pretty good company. Staff is fairly personable as well! Check out the night market on Thursdays.
