As a first time solo traveller I was a bit skeptical about this place, how wrong can I be. Ok it’s basic and no 5 star but it is such a chill place and the owners are so welcoming and friendly. The atmosphere and the socialising are unlike any places I have stayed. I met some of the most wonderful... More

We stayed here because it was cheap but I don't think we'd stay again. Freeda is very nice and helpful and the bathroom is clean enough. The bedroom on the other hand was not. There was toilet roll in the walls to block holes, the fan had a lot of muck on it and the floor was not clean. The... More

Basic rooms at cheap prices but the best bit is the socialising. It's a friendly place right where you need to be in Cenang. Very close to the beach, bars and shops. Manager has excellent local knowledge and will make sure your stay is memorable. Don't bother staying in another place where you end up being shut in your room,... More

I stayed at the Monkey Hut for a couple of nights earlier this year and met some really incredible people. The owners are wonderful and welcoming people and the facilities were perfect for the price. Good location too! Can not recommend highly enough

I came to Monkey Hut in January 2012 and intended on staying for a few days - I left three months later. On my first day in Langkawi I had an accident and ended up in hospital with a broken leg. The day I discharged the people running the guesthouse were there at the hospital waiting for me - god... More
