I stayed at Tubotel based on a recommendation after leaving Penang. It was quite a change of pace and had a nice relaxing vibe. I didn't stay in a tube, though they certainly looked fun. The venue itself was right on the waters edge which made for a lovely view, to sit and relax with a beer. The location wasn't...

We stayed here for our first 3 nights out of 10 total on Langkawi. First time in Langkawi so we didn't have any expectations. We arrived quite late and hadn't money for the key-deposition which we even didnt know about. But we were able to get to an ATM in the city so it was no problem. The hotel is...

Liked the place as it's special cause u are staying in tube kind of room and when u wake up, u wake up to sea (no beach). Room is very small and the bed is occupied the whole tube/room. You have put your stuff under the bed but it's limited space. There is no bathroom attached but there is ample...

Breakfast: 4 selections with some changes to the options on the days we were there. Pancakes tasted like raw doughy flour. But the sausages, bacon, eggs, frittata were all GOOD. Give the muesli a miss. It's apples and oranges with cornflakes and oat bran, drizzled with yogurt. There is an orange drink which is orange cordial/syrup. I didn't like it...

We spent 3 nights there, and it was one awesome experience. Very nice owner. Very polite and extremely helpful. The free breakfast is worth at least $50 for sure. So it's really worth for money. Very cozy place, neat, and friendly environment.

Rude staff and cramped pods with air con that was intermittent. On a travelling budget it just wasn't worth the price. Staff rented us a dodgey moped with brakes not working properly and they moved us around rooms loads with locks not working on pods. All in all.. look somewhere else!

We stayed at Tubotel for 3 nights and we were more than satisfied with our stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small (consist only of a big bed) but clean. There is nothing to claim about! And the breakfast which was included in the price was so good! Unfortunately, there is no access to the...

Unique hostel. You should stay here when u visit Langkawi. We took lots of pictures in front of our tubotel room. We could enjoy the sunset here, without need to go out from hostel to find another spot. The breakfast they served was delicious too. One tiny problem was mosquitoes and the wifi could not reach our room hahaha.

Been here for 4 days and 3 nights. Everything was amazing the fact that i was travelling solo. Its only that they dont have an actual bar and restaurant. Other than that the place is simply amazing! Its just a 5 mins scooter drive to Pantai Cenang. Definitely will come back here again

The hotel is a nice and cozy place with clean and comfortable rooms. By comfortable I mean just a place to sleep because every other thing is near impossible, even changing clothes is a bit of challenge. the area has a nice view of the sea specially for the sunset and the staff are mostly very friendly. Also its not...
