Just came back from Langkawi after more than 10 years of absence, and me mates and I stayed at The Cabin. In summary, it was a really great place to bunk in, with no complains to speak of. As mentioned in prior reviews, the room we had had an Ikea-ish / simple designer feel to it. Comfortable, clean and even has an LCD TV with cable channels. What we liked was the mere fact it is conveniently located close to the airport (Pantai Cenang), and allows easy access to amenities such as cafes, massage parlors and duty free shops.
The only thing you may want to take note of is that since the cabins are constructed of what appears to be zinc / roof awnings, on a hot day, the room will feel severely heated. So take care to turn the air conditioner at full power, leave the room for a couple minutes, and it should be alright by then.
In summary, The Cabin is a lodge that offers reasonable comfort for a reasonable asking price. Nothing more, nothing less. Will consider returning again on my next trip.
-clean and comfortable rooms
-located strategically near the airport and lots of amenities (no surprises since it's smack in the middle of a tourist hot spot)
-located just a few minutes walk away from Cenang beach
-a spartan establishment with just the bare necessities (but no surprises for the asking price)
-gets massively hot due to the material used to construct the rooms, unless you leave the AC on all the time
