We stayed in the guesthouse last year,a group of 11 people. We all enjoyed the stay. The price was so reasonable ( it is cheap! :) ).The rooms are big and spacious too ! And the plus point is that all of us were staying together! There is a bus stop 5 minutes away from the guesthouse to get to... More

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.

If you don't mind prices changing when you try to check-in then this is good value. We arrived and told we had to pay 60 not 50 as we were not backpackers, our backpacks and 8 months of visa stamps didn't seem to count. We were then told we could stay 3 nights at 50, but after 3 nights the... More

Hi, Dave here, very sorry for the confusion. Our rates for the weekend and weekdays are clearly stated on our website Weekdays : Single RM40 2 Person RM50 Weekends: Single RM50 2 Person RM60 The reason for the increased rates as most of our backpackers stay for an average of 1 nights that is why we offer attached bath, aircon...

Ok, this place is not luxurious, but it's as close as you'll get for 40 - 50RM per night. There's not that much to see in JB, but if you're shocked by prices in Singapore and can handle a commute this would make a great alternative. 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. The info provided by the owner was perfect and we arrived at the accomodation without any trouble. We used public transport but a taxi would have been much quicker.... More
