I had to search a lot to find out this hostel after reaching Kota Bharu. Rooms are not good, small. One night I fought with one girl from UK, because she was disturbing, staffs are not friendly. Get free coffee/tea. Toilets not clean. I met one nice guy from Japan.

Mat the owner is a great person. He cares for you and makes sure that you will have a great time in Kota Bharu. The hostel is in the city center. Everything is close to the hostel (embassy, shopping possibilities, restaurants). Even a nice vegetarian place is very close to the hostel. The hostel is perfect for backpackers looking for... More

We have been stolen there! Me and my girlfriend spent the night there in a 4 beds dorm, where there was only another person. When we did the check-in and paid the room, only the staff was in the guest house. After that, we left our baggage in the dorm room and went for a walk in the Kota Bharu... More

The staff were great here and the social area was cool. Bathrooms were averagely clean, however no where to brush your teeth or go to the toilet without it being wet from the shower. The rooms are very dark, painted as if it was a prison cell. We had the double room. Nothing special about it. Just a place to... More

The guesthouse is small but clean and cosy. Nice common area with movies. But what makes this place great is the guys that own the place. They are so helpful and kind, booking my taxi for super early in the morning ( and waking up to make sure i got it ok ) and going out of their way to... More

We arrived in Kota Bharu quite late as it was just a transit station for us on our way to Pulau Perhentian. We didn't have a lot of internet access at that time and so we really, really appreciated the help of our host who told us a lot about accomodations on Pulau Perhentian Kecil and how best to get...

After we read the reviews we did not expect much and we were not disappointed. A small room. No windows. EXTREMELY hot at night. I do not know who had the terrific idea to paint the walls black - it does not help. Rooms were clean but smelly. Shower was full of hair. Only one toilet for up to ten... More
