I Can't recommend this hostel enough. The rooms are just what you want, clean and basic. The host, Sam is very friendly and invites everyone to talk to each other and make friends. It has a great atmosphere and really is inviting. We have made good friends from this experience. We would definitely go there again!

I really liked this hostel, I would definitely recommend this for the budget backpackers. We had a spacious twin room with fan. Nice common area with a bar and TV. Basic kitchen facilities and free tea/coffee and drinking water which definitely makes a difference. There are quite a few beaches to stay at around Langkawi and i found Pantai Tengah...

Stayed here for 3 night last may. Great hostel. Lots of fun, the owner really tries to get everyone together in the common area. Takes the initiative to start the drinking games and fills up the silent moments. Got the twin room with private bathroom and airconditioning. Clean room and beds were good, even housekeeping in the mornings including fresh...

Clean guesthouse, friendly staff and good location, close to the beach, restaurants, exchange shops and rent a car places. If the weather is not the best, you can always hang out in the dinning room and chat with other travellers or Sam ;) Deffinitely a good place to stay in Langkawi.

I'm not sure how many other true hostels there are on Langkawi - but Zackry's emulates your traditional hostel. Typically filled up with 20-30 year olds, trying to see the world on a budget; A fun common room, with more than enough cheap beer to make it through the night; close to some 'attractions' (Beach, Bar, Club); the staff -...

Comfy place with a family-friendly atmosphere. I really enjoyed the laid-back bar area. Also, they provide you with lots of helpful hints on the activities you can do in the island and around. I was travelling with a group but I guess this the kind of a place that you can very much enjoy as a single backpacker.

To all backpackers: This is an example hostel. Freedom, good vibes, friendly staff, everything you need is here! Enjoy fishing with Sam or just hang out at the common room with all the guests. Everything is possible here if you stick to a few (very normal) rules. Please book this guesthouse when you visit Langkawi. You will not regret it....

They have everything that is basic in place and more...From the common area, to the free tea/coffee, to a refrigerator to store your food and drinks, to left-over butter from other fellow travellers....and the left-over mosquito spray...Hahahaha...Basically Zackry is saying COME STAY WITH US ! Its in the more up-market side of town and a...

Nice place to stay.rooms are clean. The staff is very friendly. A big problem was the laundry service.my shirt was after the laundry service more dirty! That's really bad. I just realized this problem 4 days after the stay.So thank you for the present.

About the laundry, we clearly put notice on laundry section that pax needs to separate the laundry itself as we are not responsible for color run, wear and tear, etc. We even always ask again to reconfirm that pax needs to separate the color and white.
