    A perfect place to stay”

    I originally booked for only two nights, but ended up staying a whole week. Melati's dorm is a clean, safe, and quiet place to stay. The staff treats you like family and goes out of their way to help you with whatever you need to enjoy your stay in Langkawi. Located only a two minute walk away from the beach and in the center of town with many good and affordable restaurants bars and shops. The dorm features AC and has extremely strong wifi. They also provide towels, lockers, and charging ports for each guest. They also offer bike/scooter rental and can help you arrange reasonably priced tours. The bathrooms are cleaned daily and showers have hot water. There is also an indoor lobby and outdoor lounge area for relaxing and meeting other guests. Thanks so much for a pleasant and relaxing stay - this is a place I would definitely return!

Hot shower, towels and shampoo are available, as well as lockers with keys for your personal belongings. The owner is also a very kind, caring and fun guy, who takes great care of his guests and who likes to chat with them. I really enjoyed my stay at his hostel and would definitely stay there again !

    I really enjoyed my stay at Melati's! Warm-hearted and helpful staff. I got a scooter for one day for a good price and had an amazing time on the island! The beds in the dorm are seperated so you feel like you are staying in a private room. It also has a perfect locatioan and is directly at the main road and super close to the beach! Liked this place so much and felt like home, cause the owner is really easy-going!

    Location, Nice Staff, Value of Money

    You can't beat the location of this dorm. You are right in the heart of the nearby eateries selection, across from the beach, and myriad tour operators nearby. The owner answered any question I had about traveling Langkawi, and so was his staff. I felt comfortable with the cleanliness and the other travelers that were there. You could rent a scooter from a convenient store two doors next to dorm for RM 20 per day, which is cheaper than what the owner offers. The only downfall I could think of, which isn't the owner's fault at all, is some travelers slammed the entrance door early in the morning without giving much courtesy thoughts of other sleeping guests and I was woken up at 630am several mornings I was there because of it. If you are a light sleeper, It's highly recommended to travel with earplugs.

    A friend recommended Melati's to me, and I cannot fault the place. Its clean, the staff are friendly and facilities make it feel almost like a university halls. A good place for budget backpackers. Damien (owner) is a top bloke, I had a really good conversation with him on the evening I arrived. He's very personable and easy going, he helped me book my trip to Koh Lipe and Penang. He is so helpful and considerate, almost like the dad to all the girls staying there. He goes above and beyond what is required and really out of his way to ensure you have a pleasant stay. There were girls staying there long term, which is sentiment to how good the place is. I truly wish him every success in his business and cannot recommend this place anymore. If you're looking for a personalised stay, where nothing is too big for them, then stay here.

    Budget and convenient for solo female backpacker”

    Overall is acceptable, dorm is comfortable, washroom is clean, there's a place to hang your clothes after you washed, the owner will advice you on the road trip if you're not familiar. However, it's better to have at least two person in-charge to stay in the hostel all the time, on rotation basis, because the reception lady always go out and it happened that I couldn't get back my room key deposit when I wanted to check out in the morning around 10 am something as I need to rush to airport, I called their mobile numbers quite many times but no one pick up too, so I just left my key on the reception table and informed the owner via whatsapp, without get back my deposit. Deposit not much, but I'm not satisfy with this kind of service. This hostel is convenient for solo female backpacker without any transport because it's near to various eateries, malls, stalls, shops, beach, taxi station and so on. For a nature and tranquil lover like me, I would prefer to stay at a remote area on the island (Langkawi) next time if I could drive, because there are too many tourists around Cenang area.

    Hi, Thank you for your review. May i please reply to your comment on the deposit issue: 1) We two telephone numbers stated on the notice board at the reception. The second one stated Boss Tel no and you can call me anytime on that number. Usually guest will try both numbers. Also, we have our staff Tel No right at the front of the entrance door. 2) We are a small dorm and overhead are very high especially at such prominent location. We are short of staff now and i need to allow my current staff to rest at anytime as she have heart complication and sometimes needs to rest at last minute notice. Hope you will understand this. Thank you.

    First of all, thank Damien and Elle making my stay like at home. The owner Damien is a wonderful host! The location is just perfect. Less than 2 minutes' walk you are in the beautiful beach. I like to go there early in the morning and in the evening, it was so romantic to sit there to see sunset and there is candel light on each table which is free for all guests. Less than 1 minute's walk you have delicious food just opposite the hostel. I had my breakfast, lunch and dinner there which I still miss it. The hostel provides everything like towel, shampoo, shower gel, hot and cold water, coffee/tea. Most important is I feel like home away from home and I could relax and recharge myself there. This will save my trouble looking around where to stay in my next trip to Langkawi again.

    You don't choose this place if you want luxury, but I loved the atmosphere. because the beds are actually divided in small rooms you basically sleep in a small room with one other person.

    good location, cheap price”

    i stay there for 4 nights. the dorm room was quite clean, we get privacy with the curtain for every bed. with just USD 7 , u can get simple bed, with basic facility and simple breakfast. they even provide shampoo and shoap, place to dry and iron our clothes. the location is very good. near from restaurant, shop, etc in chenang beach area. this place suitable for female solo traveler who travel with budget. the tour price at the hotel is also good. the only lacking is when i booked the snorkelling tour for pulau payar from the hotel. when the tour operator pick me up, they tell me the hotel just inform them last minutes, even though i booked at hotel 2 days ago. So, my name wasn't on a passenger list. n i almost didn't get lunch (since the just prepare for the exact amount of the listing passenger. i get my lunch the last, after others passenger get it. so i kinda feel get a left over). i don't even my name was in insurance list or not. lucky me, that nothing happened there :) but in general, i enjoy my stay here.

    It's a great place to stay if you're there for some peace and quiet. it's located near the beginning of Cenang Beach so it's a convenient place for food and drink, and there are paths leading right to the beach across the road, maybe like 100m stroll away. It would be nice if they had a rack at the bed just to put your small items and a little trash bin as well but overall I had a pleasant stay.

    Booked only one night to begin but ended up staying 3 nights. Damien is great-very helpful with recommendations. I booked the mangrove tour through the hostel and I recommend it as the guide is amazing! Hostel is close to the beach and many places to eat within walking distance. Bathroom as hot water and is big. The hostel itself is one huge room with partitions between each bunk or single bed. Only possible issue is that there is not always someone at reception if you need something. Otherwise very laid back place. I'd stay again if I return to Langkawi!
