Very bad of overall condition”
Rude desk staff who asking us why we were late upon check in even we already informed earlier (mamak guy) and ask for extra payment rm2 without prior notice! Bad condition of room, smelly pillows, im not sure if it was a pillow or a piece of pillow case. Can hear your neighbour snoring and there is no toilet inside the room! Overall very bad for rm70 per night it should way less than that!. Not worth the money at all. Sekian.

OK for the money and Great Location”
I can only speak for the single rooms with shared bath and I stayed in two different rooms. Both were OK but room 115 is very nice and good interior decoration. Good mattress and pillow. Nice color natural daylight lamp. Nice desk for my computer. I stayed for 9 days so it was my home. Some problem with noise from the family who lives there staying up late and laughing and talking but I told them to be quiet and then they were quiet. The key deposit is a scam. I checked the price to make a key 5 minutes walk away from the hotel on chulia st. The price is 1.5 R. So how can they justify charging 50 R for a deposit? I recommend they take only 20 R it would be more fair. The location is the best as you can walk 10 minutes to the beach/park or 5 minutes to Chulia st. 15 minutes to the Komptar. There are no bedbugs in the single rooms and I asked some people who stayed in the dorm if there were bedbugs and they said there was no problem they suggested that you ask for a clean sheet.

The items provided.”
I would suggest to add items such as hairdryer and some toiletries such as toothpaste and shampoo as well as conditioner. Besides, I would recommend if you prepare some basic needs such as tissues in every room and nail clipper at the receptionist.

Noisy Rude and Bad. A guest house from hell”
3 reason you must Avoid 1 Noise. The walls are like paper. You will hear every word and sound from neighbouring room. As if they are in bed with. In 2 night I had about 6 hours sleep. 2. Rudest staff I meet in 2 year traveling. The reception will demanded 4RM tax. THIS IS INCLUDED IN YOUR BOOKING FEE. Check your Agoda receipt. They will also demand a 50RM key deposit. You can get a key cut around the corner for 4RM. When I refused the woman started shouting and spitting 3. It's a dump. Itch dirty old blankets. The are so cheap even the sheet is to small for the bed. Pay a few $s more or sleep on the train station. It will be a quieter and cleaner experience.

A circus of Bed bugs”
I am not a picky traveler at all. I understand where I am sleeping and it's not a 5 star glamorous hotel. I'm a backpacker and don't expect or want high maintenance showers or comfy beds made out of fluffy ostrich feathers. My fellow backpackers, if you want to see a circus of bed bugs the size of dimes, please by all means visit the Red inn heratiage. I only warn you of my experience. I reiterate, I don't expect lavender or rose peddles on my bed at all, but bed bugs the size of 10¢ is not the best way to catch some Z's. P.s front desk ladies were trying to make it work and did put in alot of effort. They were great people and not there fault.
