I stayed at Rumours Guesthouse for a week in December 2012. Upon arrival we were warmly greeted by the friendly owners, we were soon given a refreshing welcome drink and while we recovered from our journey to Langkawi in the hammocks by the bar we chatted to the staff to find out where was good to eat out, to drink and to sightsee. The staff were more than happy to give us recommendations. It was noticeable that the staff were all enjoying working there and this created a really pleasant atmosphere, before long friends of the staff were socialising in the restaurant area and we were invited to join.
A great place to go to meet other backpackers, the location is perfect as it's a one minute walk back from the road so much less noisy than the other guesthouses and resorts along the beachfront, not to mention cheaper. Now my favourite place in Langkawi!
A true backpacker vibe, a tasty free breakfast, affordable rooms, friendly and informative staff.
