Fantastic Find for a Cheap No-frills Stay”
I absolutely enjoyed my stay. For my purposes, the hostel was perfected located, but it is far away from the main touristy Heritage areas and beaches. Nonetheless, there is a bus stop right outside with buses to all areas (including the airport). Otherwise, call for a cab (can't hail one off the street so easily). The hostel is new and well-maintained, shared bathroom is clean and has liquid shower gel, however, towels are not provided so do bring your own (the ones the hostel sells are just a bit too thin), otherwise, any other toiletries can be found in the convenience store nearby. Food can be found within walking distance. The free wifi is a gem!
feeling like home”
Wonderful, beyond imagination. Overall, this is an ideal hotel for those who like to have a home stay feel. Clean, safe, wifi...all your basic needs are just there. Only drawback, the hotel signboard need to setup asap, where i took more than 1/2 hour to locate the hostel.
The hostel is a renovated big house made into a very good hostel. The hostel was very clean and comfortable. The toilet was hotel style. Air conditioned, I rate this one as 5 star. Comparing this hostel with a hostel that I rent during vacation, this one just amazing, for a cheap price. The mosque and bus stop is not far away. Recommended for anyone/group that want a cheap and comfortable stay. Thank you to the staff brothers for your hospitality
Staff were very friendly and helpful! The three-story building was clean, cozy and quiet. Local food food and convenience stores within walking distance. About 15-20 mins drive to the airport (when no traffic).
Very nice & clean place. Happy New Year 2019.

Location bit quiet. Carpark not provided.
Bad experience. I rarely have given a bad review, but this is one. This place has no one working onsite, and I didn’t realize this when booking. I was sent a message prior to arrival, that I was to get my key in the lockbox outside the gate. The key was supposed to have my name one it. When I opened the box, there were 2 keys, neither with my name one it more the bed number they said was mine. I called the WhatsApp number given in my email and messaged it and no one responded for over an hour. I figured out which key was to my dorm, but it was not the same number as the bed they told me was mine in the email. The also did not work for the locker with the number on it. The locker it did work for would not lock after opening it, so my valuables were at risk. I realize odds were low that someone might take my passport, etc, but I still had to feel unsure about.l, as there is no staff on site either. The biggest problem was the next day. Someone comes into my room when I am sleeping and asks me where my key is. They did not respect the fact inward sleeping and persisted till I got out of bed to show them my key. It was the owner, who wanted to give me the correct key they SHOULD have left according to my email. This was very upsetting, as there was no care for the fact I was in bed. The place was clean, but smelled heavy of some cleaning product in the dorm.
Never knew that it is that neat. Awesome for a short stay. However, it is located in a quiet area.”
Interesting way of checking in.
Clean and easy check-in”
Very clean. For check-in, required to contact hostel and get a password to open the gate. Limited towel as it is located at common area, but i prefer to use own towel.
