Backpacker Stay is a Clean and Friendly place to stay. The reason I left is bcz the bed was too soft. The staff are quite friendly and helpful-- he told me all the beds are soft, and even gave me suggestions of other places to look ! "Breakfast" is typical for Malaysia: bread (toast), margarine, jam, tea, and instant coffee. The rooms are clean, quite small, and basic. Each floor has two toilets. Three showers are on the first floor, to the side of the communal kitchen. When I was there, yesterday, only one shower gave HOT water-- however the cleaning person I asked did not speak English, and she was asking the desk person... perhaps all three do give hot water, as all three do have a heater (the plugs were turned on...??). **** You must 'rent' a towel for use. The neighborhood is safe for walking--just use common sense. It is located next to and across from two Food Courts, a 24hr 7-11, cafes, bars, restaurants, a 5 min walk from the most modern mall, and a 10 min walk from a cinema. The Tourist Information and Riverfront are 5 mins walk. It is located in Old Chinatown. I recommend Backpacker Stay for other budget travellers.

It's of noise from the restaurant next door and uncomfortable beds but for the low price it's a great option. Bathrooms were clean but the toilets could use fixing. Staff were very friendly and able to book taxis and other tourist shuttles. Great service from them.

Pretty good, this place is great value for money, situated right in the middle of old chinatown. Possible only real downside was the wooden floors in the hallway and very noisy guests (the wall were pretty thin), but not the fault of the staff (although some QUIET PLEASE signs would go a long way). Also the chinese market restaurant is just next door which can be noisy, but worth it for a clean place to stay. It's also a bonus having 3 toilets that always had loo paper fully stocked (something you learn not to take for granted when travelling in Borneo). The staff were always happy to arrange tours and transport for you.
