Other than that, hair dryer, 3-in-1 drinks, iron (request at receptionist) also provided. I am really really happy to stay at Kimberley House. Also, the location is near with mall, bus station, main attraction and else. You can just walk ! Thank You , really recommended !

            Friendly staff, bad WiFi, just an OK place”

            The staff is very friendly, and play nice music in the lobby/common area. The hostel has several common areas with comfortable sofas. What is really nice is the free coffee/tea/water service and that the towel is included. The WiFi is, however, very slow or not working at all. The female dormroom (no window) is quiet and spacious, the mattress a little too thin and the bed made noises when I turned around. Unfortunately there was no ensuite bathroom which is quite common in female dorms. The shower heads are really great, hot water is available and they provide shower gel (but no handsoap). The shower rooms are small though and it would be nice if they would provide some water tight cabinet in the shower room to put your clothes in. When I was there the other guests kept to themselves; there was little or no interaction which I didn't like. Also, it would have been nice to have a all barefoot hostel. In all, its definitely a hostel you can consider staying at, but it didn't stand out.

            Overall is nice. However, i feel that the toilet's facilities should be more complete such as the hooker to hang the clothes inside the bathroom should be provided. It will be easier for the guest so their clothes or stuff can hang while bathing.

            The location is great and it’s value for money. There are two different receptionists that work there and they are total opposites, one is grumpy and maybe shouldn’t work in hospitality, the other cannot do enough for you. Overall a good experience and I would stay again

            It’s really affordable and located at a prime location, where it’s just near to Komtar bus station (where we could easily take rapid bus to anywhere). Yet, it’s not really suitable for those who looks for clean place to stay, as it’s not really hygiene as compared to others and the facilities is not as good as others too.

            If you have tight budget then only you can stay here. Location is very good, I walked and visited nearby places and find the location to be strategic. Bathroom was clean enough and the staff were friendly and helpful. This place is not family friendly, only suitable for budget travelers. I had to extend my stay for 3 more days and did not have much budget for another three nights, so I chose Kimberly House as it was the cheapest in agoda for hostel dorm. I find it good and worth the money. This is not safe place so make sure that you always carry your valuable belonging when you go out. Do not leave your money or anything valuable in locker .

            Terrible cleanliness ”

            Agoda needs to specify whether the room provides private bathroom or not . Normally when stated shower under the description means private bathroom where shared bathroom also written properly . This time is really a big disappointment stay because private bathroom means a lot to us . Next is the hairdryer , function is not available after 30 seconds , it's so annoying . The bed is not clean as we feel itchy on our skin after sleep . Anyway , the staffs are really good !! The location is good as well , walking distance to most destinations including the famous Chew Jetty & Armenian Street for murals , provided you don't mind walking under hot sun for maximum 20mins . If you don't mind of shared bathroom & ok with any cleanliness (not really terrible but we have sensitive skin condition) , the stay is good enough for the price .
