    aircord, location, cheap price

    I stayed only one night. Noted that only the first dorm room are used as dorm for backpacker. There are only shared bathroom and toilet. And also, the last few rooms are occupied. So there will be lots of people going in and out to the room at night time. I was annoyed by the door opening sound. Also, the staff aware in the hostel but they allowed it to do business. There are reason why it is so cheap.

    Super friendly staff”

    The staff is great, there's a superb park about 5min walk away, there are 3 huge shopping centres all within 10mins of walking

    I stayed there longer than I was originally supposed to and I'm glad I did. I got the chance to meet the owner who is super cool. The staff is super helpful even tough they don't speak english very well, they will go out of their way to make you comfortable and help you out. The only downside I can think of is that it's far from downtown Johor Bahru. Once you get used to the public transport, it's no big deal though. I definitely recommend you stay at Sekai's if you happen to go through JB.

    While views may varies from one traveller to another - my stay with Sekai was great - close to Legoland Theme & Water parks, close to Hello Kitty Theme building. Lots of foods outlets & major departmental stores/supermarkets near by. Guesthouse staff are helpful. Try book for the superior room (The one with attached toilet).
