Clean and comfortable in a great location”

Pros: very clean, great location, nice sized room, comfy bed, fridge stocked with water and drinks for a very reasonable price, hair dryer available, as well as washing machine on site for very reasonable price. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Cons: Towels would be nice, as it a bit of a pain to pack a wet towel in a backpack when leaving.

Home feel lodge, good facilities, room not soundproof”

The ambiance of the homestay is great, facilities are complete, room and bathroom is clean. Room is NOT soundproof though. Can easily heard conversations from other rooms. Location is great, suitable for a river walk, located near Pak Putra and Asam Pedas restaurants.

Good but not the best”

I guess I didn't have many options to find such accommodation offered at this price. I took a cab to get here from the terminal. Area seemed a bit sketchy at night but it looked okay during day time. Location is nice, close to a carnal sidewalk that leads to popular tourists spots by 15 min walk. The staff seemed really nice and informative. The room though was a bit of disappointment. Room was super tiny for a bunk bed + single bed. I didn't like their mattress because it was hard and flat. Shower was located next to a small kitchen and it was really tiny too. All in all, not bad!

on the riverwalk a couple of blocks from Jonker St. nice vibe, and the wifi worked reasonably well. The owner also manages two other properties nearby. You actually have to check in at the hotel a few doors down.

Make sure you check your email before you arrive for the door code or you won't be able to get in. The owner/operator is rarely around but other than that the place worked out well for us. Very clean and would stay again.
