We had such a good time staying at Zackry's guesthouse, Sam is a great guy and really good at making sure everyone staying there socializes and has a laugh. He is all about having a good time.
We organised hire of 2 cars between 10 of us and Sam took us around the island showing us places that weren't on the tourist map and making sure we all got to see/do the things we wanted to see/do and it worked out cheaper including fuel than renting motorbikes (it was a nice change to relax with some aircon and the radio on!). We also went for a local-style roti breakfast which was great as we wouldn't have stumbled across half of the things we went to had we done the trip on our own. There's also the opportunity to do a spot of fishing in the back garden..!
There's also a kitchen so you can cook your own food / water and tea bags etc.
Location-wise it's about a 20-25 minute walk from the hostel to Underwater World in the main stretch of the town, and about a 7 minute walk to the nearest beach.
I'd recommend staying here if you are a backpacker looking for basic digs and wanting to meet other backpackers. We are 22 and 23 and on a budget!
Thanks Sam for a great time in Langkawi! Lots of love, Ellie and Sam (Sam number 2)
