Poor condition, not great

Location only

The room was very old and had no window. It is definitely not worth paying extra to have an en-suite. The room was too expensive for what you get. The staff were helpful but didn't have much information on tours so we had to arrange them on our own. Wouldn't recommend it.

i cant stay there. Only few hours to rest until morning. The room odor was too bad. I think they never change or wash the bedsheet. Stain everywhere.

Average hostel with great location

Location, aircon, free water

This place is a basic budget hotel. It's good if you just want to sleep here and have plans throughout each day. Bad things: Not really a nice place to hang out, as the 'common area' sits on a balcony over looking a carpark and is based around a television which is always turned on and switched to a Malaysian channel (fair enough). It is almost always full of middle-aged men who are smoking. The wifi is iffy at times but that may be a city-wide issue. The shower is cold and the water pressure is a dribble. Loud music from nearby plaza and constant SLAMMING of doors can be heard every night. The good things are: Kitchen has free drinking water (hot and cold) and basic food prep utensils - glasses, bowls, toaster, fridge space, mini oven etc). Good location. Strong air-con in room. Toast and coffee offered. Pretty good wifi in some spots. Staff are helpful - suggested cheap place to get laundry done (Gaya Laundry)

The staff is very friendly and helpful, found it easy to get around the city with their advice on where to go. Location is conveniently in the city and walking distance to food restaurants. All this in a beautifully retrofitted heritage shophouse. Definitely staying here again.👍👍
