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.👍👍

Ok, room is very tiny, bed was on floor, bathrooms tiny and no space between toilet and shower. No toilet paper, staff very nice and helpful. However loads of very loud travelers up all night singing and banging doors

We stay at private ensuite room attach bathroom, the room is small. Soundproofing not good, live music during night time very noisy, we can hear clearly. However the location is good, easy to excess to jetty, shopping center & local food.

Location was great. Very near the terminal to airport. The advanced request for windowed room was not granted and the free breakfast was just bread and coffee.

They provide 24 hour check in, it is not easy to spot but it is just opposite of public bank.do wake up early for breakfast, because the staff will not refill the bread so frequently.
