I was told about this place by a guy I met in a bar in Kuala Lumpur and I must say I am happy I followed his advice, I cannot say a bad thing about this place even though it's priced a little higher than most in the budget travel category. I feel that you get what you pay. Location... More

Our stay was okay- the buidling itself is beautiful and the facilities are good but the dorm rooms have no lockers and there is no safety deposit at reception even though the spec says there is, so you end up carrying around all your valuables which is not ideal! When I asked the lady about this I was told the... More

this was my first hostel stay, as middle-age (vs the young adult traveler). I opted for a private room with bath and enjoyed my one night last minute stay here. The room was simple, but had Aircon and enough space to move around and place your bags.

We stayed here for two nights and it was a fairly good experience. We did walk-in in the early afternoon and we got a private room at a discount price (72MR). The room is small with no windows, and only one charging plug, but AC works good and the bed is very comfortable. The first night was very quiet, but... More

We didn't stay here, but our hostel (Red Inn 56) suggested we come here to book a bus to KL. Big mistake! First of all, we had to pay 8 extra ringit for their "services." We booked the 1:30pm bus at 12:15pm and were told that we had to wait to be picked up at 1pm and that we didn't... More

I have stayed here every time when I visit Georgetown, I wouldn't go anywhere else. I always feel welcome, safe and homely here. Lynn is super lovely and is always putting safety of guests (while in, and out of the guest-house) a priority. A beautiful, well furnished building, the rooms are a bit on the small side - but the...

This place is a disaster. A dirty, stinking room (dirty carpet, bathroom in tragical condition - it s safer not to take a shower at all than to take it, old, demolished furniture). This place is hopeless, budget conditions do not justify filth. No window, door looks like it were about to fall out (no security). We arrived there very... More
