Clean, safe, and great atmosphere. This place is away from the busy main road in Pentai Cenang. You have to either walk through a rice field (3 minutes) or down a long driveway (7 minutes) to get to the main strip from the guest house. You can't beat the prices for a dorm in Langkawi though so it's worth it. The vibe is laid back and a bit hippie-ish. There are a few cats and chickens sort of scattered and super friendly/cute to play with.
Staff: The owner and staff are really nice but not as helpful as I'd hoped when trying to figure out cheaper options for exploring the mangroves and islands (i.e. not on a tour). Still very nice and accommodating though: they can arrange tours for you and even help with renting a scooter. They also know good restaurants in the area (and which touristy ones to avoid).
Cleanliness: Everything is clean. My only gripe with the bathrooms is that because the door is pretty much open at night, mosquitos congregate around the toilets. So by early morning if you have to sit down to do your business, you'll be sitting around 20 or 30 mosquitos. They're gone by mid-morning though and I'm sure if the door were closed it wouldn't be an issue.
Breakfast: They serve breakfast but it's a la carte (i.e. you pay). Other guests seemed to enjoy it and the menu was reasonably priced compared to surrounding restaurants.
Atmosphere: Really relaxing. There is a huge outdoor common area with fans, tables, lots of chairs, and a TV with cable and movies. The guest house is next to what I assume is a farm with cows. It's really peaceful at night. A/C in the dorms, cleanliness, and 20 MYR per bed... it's all you need. :)
I would definitely recommend. I stayed as a solo female and never felt unsafe, even when walking through the rice field alone one late night coming back!
