            The location, in front of kuantan city bus stand, matches perfectly to discover the surroundings. Very welcoming staff. Nice option to have a break. Toasts, jelly, tea as breakfast. Clean rooms with a/c. Plenty of services : pharmacy, hawker food market, clinics, shops in the same street. Numerous sites of interest can be visited from the guesthouse using rapid kuantan or taxi : beaches, waterfall, river, amusement park, religious monuments, park, museum, the tin mines, the turtle sanctuary☺. The countryside around the town reminds north Brazil (Amazonas). I sincerely recommand it☺

            Location, Air Con & Location

            This is perhaps the only "hostel" in Kuantan and so you won't have much to compare it with. This hostel is overpriced and you can get much better accommodations in Penang or Maleka. The owner is an "absentee landlord" meaning she is never much on the premises and gives full responsibility to "foreign guests -- in the "work-away" program". Your first backpack hike will be up the long two level flight of stairs. The bathroom is a relic and filthy. The 'staff' made of guests (Poland, etc.) treat the place like their own home, don't wash the dishes, I left my linen at reception desk after check-out and it remained their all day until the Owner showed up. There are NO outlets for each bed unit and so I used the adapter linked to the A/C that shorted my Laptop power adapter and a new cord cost me RM15 and the adapter might need to be replaced and that is 100-150 myr. That would be almost 8X what I was charged for my stay. There was one nice 'staff' from Wales, but again, they don't do chores, no butter spread was available or coffee for the so called "free breakfast" -- standard toast and jam. The only great thing about this place was the location -- two blocks from local bus terminal and the room with air-con was comfortable. Although, all those "staff' who get free room and board or pay less for "fan room" suddenly pile in at night to all vacant beds to get that A/C on paying guest tab and the owner doesn't seem to care. The price needs to be cut and in half until the bathroom is remodeled and more amenities are provided. Locker storage in room though is brand new and works well. Bottom line this is a business and the Owner needs to put the profits back into the investment or over time this hostel will be the red herring that no one visits in Kuantan.

            Value for money, location, near to the bus terminal going to different places within kuantan

            The only backpackers hostel that's cheap but comfortable nonetheless. Nothing much to say. But if you are a backpacker, this is the most suitable place to find a cheap place to stay and it's actually really okay. Will be coming back there again to stay.

            good location. certainly not the view but a few steps from the central bus station, market, various shops and services. I stayed almost 1 week and I can say that maybe in high season it is different but the staff follows the schedules so pay attention to the wait if you arrive after hours. friendly and helpful staff, not very involved and attentive to detail. for example, cleaning the fridge, clean but stained towels, clothes hangers to repair and 1 felt-tip pen or 1 paint working in the common area. Available simple bread +am breakfast, large fridge in the common kitchen and drinking water (I highly recommend replacing the external filter that does not work). A computer is also available in the common area. basic dorm with air conditioning and fan everywhere, cleaning ok. not much attention to detail but overall one feels at home and the common area is a mural where all people have left their mark. To consider that this is not a very tourist area. thanks for the welcome and peacef

            location, free breakfast

            The hostel is fine for one or two nights. Rooms are spacious when they're not fully booked, but might be a bit of a mess with a lot of backpacks. Breakfast is just toast and jam, but a nice touch. Staff is friendly, but there's not always someone around. Bathrooms do the job, hot water showers. Located near the bus station so easy to get around. Overall a good stay and would recommend for a budget traveller.

            for what you get, you would normally pay less in other cities. But taking into account that there aren,t many tourists in kuantan and that it is the only hostel in the area, i would go back there.

            I stayed in one of the bunk beds for nearly 2.5 weeks. It is affordable at MYR 30/day, clean, a/c, central location, all-day toast/coffee, common kitchen/fridge, walk to bus terminal. Wifi is temperamental - on/off or slow. If wifi is fast and reliable, I would give this place 2 thumbs up!

            Usually backpackers are filled with staff that are able to help you with places to go and how to get there. Unfortunately the girl working couldnt even tell us how or where to catch a bus (which was actually across the road). The place was fairly clean central with working air con.

            This hostel has special reception time, but it didn't mention about it and I didn't receive any mail to get that info either. I arrived there just 10mins passing their reception time, so I called them. The one I called, he just asked me to wait at lobby, then he would come soon..."SOON">2hrs!! Finally, I waited for more than 2hrs to checkin. The dorm was just okay, but the bathroom and kitchen wasn't clean enough. They provided the fitrated water...but the filter seemed so dirty! Like 10years not to be replaced... The wifi wasn't stable. Walk in price was more than booking from website. And the price of female dorm was RM2 more than mixed one. They also provided the room rental for students and workers. Maybe the only 1 plus is the location, close to city bus terminal, night market, supermarkets and restaurants.
