Secured place, staff is nice, they have 24/7 wifi access at no additional cost. It will cost you 7-10 MYR from JBC. There's restaurant near the place. Thy could have provided you with coffee mugs or glasses. Water is low and limited cable/tv channel.

Otherwise, if you're travelling around Malaysia and want a break from the budget hotels... More

We recently stayed 1 night at the JB Guest House. It's about 10-15 mins outside of JB and took us just over 30 mins by bus from JB Sentral bus stn.
