Good Staff, Uncomfortable Beds

Cheap, Cheap, Cheap
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.

Staff is friendly, good WIFI reception, you can find lots of nice restaurants around the area, if you prefer local rice or famous Sarawak noodle, the food count is just next door!!

Nice atmosphere, great location in Old Chinatown

Friendly staff, clean rooms, clean showers/toilets
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.

Comfortable Stay

Easy access, quiet and calming
Our second time here and it's definitely a comfortable stay. Place is quiet and calming. Room is clean and just cozy enough for backpackers. There is a kitchen where you can prepare your own drink or make light breakfast. They do provide coffee, tea and bread.

Enjoyable trip!

Reasonable price, comfortable staying, friendly staff
It was great! The accommodation is better than what I expect, with the reasonable price. It is clean and comfortable, and you feel ease to stay there together with the others. The hotel is centrally located, but if you are driving, it would be hard to get a parking there.
Kok M. Solo travelers Malaysia, April 30, 2014
Simple and clean room.

Budget and centrally located hostel
The single room is quite small but clean. The bad point is the staircase.

Helpful staffs, Best location

Staff, Location, Comfortable
It's pretty good, We have 9 person late flight arrive at Midnight. We concern about check in process & neighbor disturb, but They still have standby staff & help to room arrangement. 2 staffs can help everything such as souvenir, call taxi, co with agent service, good restaurant. Best location, close to convenient store & waterfront, food hawker close in left side. Some trouble from toilet not so good from flushing system & my room have water drop from top. But overall is very nice
