Awesome Customer Service! Highly Recommended”
I had to change my place of stay since the bus to Ipoh got delayed for several hours and I ended up arriving in Ipoh at 2.00 am instead 11 pm/12 am. I have called them before the first time the bus was rescheduled, informing that I will be arriving at midnight. Unfortunately, the bus got delayed further and I decided to crash in other hotel/hostel nearby the bus terminal. This has cost me more but my main concern was my safety since I travelled alone. I didn't text or inform the staff bout not showing up that night but I didn’t realized that the staff texted me, asking about my exact arrival time. I only replied to them the next morning at 7 am. The language used in the text, how they interact with me was accommodating, professional and deserve a praise. Despite the fact I didn't stay there, they treated me with so much respect and I feel valued. I highly recommend this place because of its top-notch customer service.
The location is good, close to town area which is within 15 minutes walking distance. Accomodations are satisfactory, but during my time of stay the shower faucet was broken which made it extremely difficult to turn the knob. Hope the owners will replace it soon
Sorry for the disappointment. Before your stay, we had a group booking for all our room during that month. We did not notice about it & we had replaced it after your feedback. Thank you!
everything is good except pillow no so comfortable
Thank you & we will notice about it. May I know which bed during your stay?
Good hot water”
Good hot water
Place was clean and tidy. The lounge was very useful to go on your laptop or phone and do some work with a dry cafe to buy some coffee or snacks. Wifi was interrupted a few times though. The self-serve laundry was great and we saved a lot from paying a service. Bike rental was free for guests but you can only have it until 6 pm. Overall, good value for the price you pay.
Sorry for the internet connection. Sometimes the government technician are doing some upgrading service & this might interrupt the area connection. Thank you!
I was really happy to stay here as the place is really clean including 2 toilets. Got place to hang the clothes outside. Hot shower( have heater).Have washing machine.A bit hot when i entered in daytime because they only ON the AC at night. ( have small fan above your head at the bed)Its was easy when i out and i just placed the scanning card on the reception table and then check out myself at early morning.So convenient. Very safe place.
Poor ventilation, otherwise excellent”
Got a bit of giddiness, woke up feeling a bit tired. Oxygen and ventilation in the room is poor. Otherwise it is indeed value for money.
best hostel in ipoh”
great and helpful receptionist. hot shower and tea coffee 24/7 living room area is huge and location is awesome. I will comeback k again. thank you.
Clean and Comfortable”
Great location. Close to some local restaurants and attractions. And the town bus station(Medan Kidd) was within walking distance. The staff was kind and genuinely helpful. The common area was spacious and drinking water(hot/cold) was available. Renting a bicycle was free for the guests. Bathrooms were super clean with hot shower and good water pressure. Bed was cozy with curtains which gave some privacy. And Strong wifi signal anywhere in the guesthouse! I had a comfortable stay.
