I'm about to set off to do some solo travelling around South East Asia. My first stop is Langkawi and I want to stay in a social dormitory where I can meet people and do as much as possible on Langkawi. Can anyone recommend me anywhere? I'm currently looking at the Gecko Guesthouse. It's pretty budget, I think I could splash out a little more myself but I can't find many dormitory type accommodation places in Cenang.
Also, could someone suggest any backpacker hotspots in Malaysia to visit? I've been to Penang before so I think i'll leave that out, but I'm looking at going to Kuala Lumpur and then taking it from there. Any general Malaysia tips and advice are much appreciated!
