I decided to stay in Memory Guest house because of the 50th anniversary celebrations in Singapore and also because the hostels in Singapore are super expensive in comparison to here. Roger, the owner is the most friendly guy that you could ever meet. He looks after you as if you're his own children. The bed's are comfortable and there is... More

Now "Memory Homestay". Since June 2015 new owner Rodger took over. One of the nicest guys we met during our travels in Malaysia (and elsewhere). Extremely helpul. So forget all comments made below, that means before June 2015. Free tea, coffee all day long. Rooms/Dorms basic. Clean. Cheap. Free (fast!!!) WiFi. This all makes up the 20 min walk to... More

This place is amazing... and the new owner Rodger has changed the name to Memory guest house, so if you see either name while trying to find it, don't be confused! It's worth the little walk from the main bus terminal at JB (maybe 20 minutes on foot), and he has a few bikes you can use to go explore... More

A good place to stay. Near to the town and the bus stops (20 minute slow walk). Tea and coffee provided all day for free. Dormitory is in a sort of corridor but they have put up some dividers recently and it's much more private. Cold water shower as is to be expected. Strong ceiling fan and sheets provided. There...

The guy was friendly enough on arrival but then basically he never said anything to us after that, which made it hard to plan things and get information. The kitchen that was promised online had signs up saying not to use it. The place is basic, which was fine, but is quite far from town. A good 10-15min walk from... More

Jomi is a really nice guy and his place certainly has something special to it. But it still is a 40 RM accommodation which is very very basic. You'll sleep on mattresses on the floor, the dorm is in the hall way so don't expect to get too much sleep there. You can use the computer and there is wifi... More

Jomi Homestay is what the name says: John and his family share their house with guests. You either stay at the "dorm", which basically is the large entrance corridor with beds and fan in it (for 15 RM the night) or you stay at the double room (double bed, fan) for 40 RM per night. In front of the house... More
