        Warm and cozy”

        Staffs are friendly! All the facilities are clean. The bed is awesome. You’ll definitely have a good night’s sleep. A charge of $5 do apply if you were to check in late. It’s so convenient if you are travelling using Intercity bus. It’s just a minute walk from the bus stop. Definitely recommend to stay here! ❤️

        Nice location with friendly staffs”

        The location is really nice, since a lot of tour shuttles and Intercity stop at the centre next door. Staff is really nice, and the room is clean. Also has a nice kitchen. Would definitely recommend to stay here.

        Recommended 100% Good Service”

        the staff is very kind and very accomodating, your promotion is ok, the price is low compared to other backpackers and at least you can change the promotion at night, so someone will book instead of wasting the room vacancy and at least if it's cheap someone will be book on overnight stay.
