Great location, clean, great service”

very nice and friendly staff, clean, great location

This hotel is located at a great location. It is clean and the staff are friendly. Breakfast (bread, coffee/tea, fruits, cereal and even Malaysia roti canai) is provided. What I did during breakfast was sipping a cup of coffee at the balcony while enjoying the morning breeze and looking at sights of the morning crowd. Great feeling. The room is a little bit small and hey with its design and price, I would say it is worth it.

The characters who run it, the location and the breakfast.

My single room had 5 beds in it, but I had it all to myself. The showers at the end of the corridor are clean and work fine. It's pretty clean for back-packers place and good value for money.

Toilet Issue”

To be honest, the picture shown in the website is totally different from the reality. I spent a night there, and it was a very insecure night for us. Though the concept of this place is like a hostel, but please make sure the toilet and the shower room is clean, organized and have some privacy. Especially the toilet door which is the lock gone and also got a hole where people can peeking you from the outside. Another toilet also got a big hole on the ceiling, which is scary to imagine about snakes, rats or any types of animal falling down while you doing your business in the toilet. And also the washing machine is in the toilet as well which make the toilet cramped. The room we staying is okay, cleaned but unpleasant smell. But, the location is quite strategic that you can access to many famous tourist attraction. The staff is friendly as well. I hope that you can improve in terms of cleanliness, toilet privacy and well organized in future.
