I had a great experience here! The hostel has good vibes and the tasks are not difficult. The staff is very relax and also organized. Flexible and nice people. The place is beautiful to explore and connect with local people and travelers. I really enjoyed it and full recommend :) Thanks for everything and I wish the best for the business and personal projects! Best wishes <3

It was quite a valuable experience. I've never been to hostels before so I had to get used to surroundings but Mantra makes everybody feel welcomed. What's more, there are a lot of opportunities to socialise with international travelers as well as locals who can recommend which things to do on Langkawi.

Best stay so far ! The hostel itself is AMAZING and a great place for people to meet and socialise. If you're shy you've got mantra there to make you feel more comfortable. She is always laughing and is an amazing person, herself and Janne have created a perfect place for backpackers. Helping here is great as well, your living a short walk away from the beach. So how can you complain about that. Mantra …I'm sorry but I'll be back 💙✨

Love you Marissa. She is natural and blend just right in! Marissa was here during a busy week and it such a relief to have someone as independent and wonderful as her!



Wow! This was my first volunteer job ever, and it was great. I had such a wonderful time. The owners are great and so helpful. They have all the good tips, like going to grab a nice cold beer with a beautiful sunset, and they are very social! So, what are you waiting for?! If I could stay longer, I would. But! No worries, one day I will return. So, thank you Mantra, Janne, and Bell! You guys are the best! I will see you again. With love, Lioncub Jordy.
