I dont like this place. The concept of the long house is pretty good but the maintenance of the room is terrible. The windows cannot be locked and people can easily crawl inside the room.
We locked the door at night from inside and in the middle of the night someone 'bang' open the door. We were so careless that we did not check very carefully before check-in.
Staffs keep telling us we are here to make friends and happy, not just to get a room, however we dont feel secure at all in th is place. Please becareful of your belonging if you want to stay here.
The party is until latenight and people yelling and shouting downstairs.. I am not sure but I guess this is not the kind of relax that we are looking for..
In the next morning we found that there is no water supply in the washroom, we ended up taking shower in the public toilet at Marang jetty. If you heard good stories about here, it is probably LAST TIME..
a good verandah to meet people

I dont stay here, but this is the dorm look like, it cost around RM20/Night.
and take a look on the other picture, the area of this guess house is really relaxing. I love to sit there and have a reading moment.
Ok, i never like to stay at dorm, because i dont feel save with keeping my stuff next to my bed and share the room with lots of people, therefore i took a single room with double bed, it is very simple and there is a net for keep away from mosquito when you are sleeping, and there is no mosquito.
the bed very convertable, there is no table or no closet for place your cloth what not and there is a fan. I paid for RM40 for that.
the light will be on from 7pm until 7am. in this island, there is not electricity, most of places or chelet depending on the generator machine for an electcity.
The accomodation in this island is quite standard. Don't expect 5 star accomodation around here other than Gemia island resort. From where I have stayed basic facilities such as a toilet, a dusty bed, a dusty fan, a dusty TV, etc are all avaiable in this place. Not too bad I must say.
One must note Electricity are avaiable from 6pm until 6-7am only. As such sleeping inside the room during the afternoon is not recemmended. It's real hot & stuffy. In fact you can opt to take a break outside where you can enjoy the cool sea breeze. And it's really awesome.
Well known lodging for backpackers. For those who are interested to feel the true nature of beach life you are invited here.There will be some foreigners who you can share experience,knowledge and thoughts. We do really recommended for those who love discovery new things in life and not really recommended for those who expect luxury and cofort environment.
Basically, Light house is an idea for those who love to share their knowledge, experience and thoughts as one family. The colors of skin is not the matters here as long as you can adapt yourself here. It built like a Kampung wooden house which can occupy 60 pax in a time. There are hall & kitchen and also bar for those who wanna free & easy vacation.
Absolutely good value! Marvellous peoples(dutch guy and chinese woman with their daughter) are running the place, and there is a bar that sells alcohol, wich is not very usual on the east-coast. Also the food they make, is just grrrrreat!!
There are different kind of accomodations, from chalets to small cottages. We were in the chalet and it was just lovely, so close to nature.
Possible to rent diving gears and boat.
