Ive traveled SE Asia for 4 months now but this is in the top of worse accommodations so far. Look at my other reviews and normally I'm very happy and positive about accommodations/tours etc. Tho this one should be mentioned to prevent other travelers the disappointment that me and my partner experienced. Six weeks beforehand (due to Christmas) we booked... More

As a place to lay your head after a day out and about it's all you need. Friendly staff make it though, very... More

This hostel is just what we needed in Georgetown. We walked in off the street and were able to stay in a double private room with air con (and a tv & dvd player with that we didn't end up using. They offered dvds to borrow for free downstairs). The bed was comfortable although the blanket was too small to... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in a private room on the 3rd floor. Howie, one of the staff members, took us out around the city for several hours, teaching us about the history and culture, and eating the best food! We especially loved ending the tour with dim sum and tea. Thanks, Howie, for everything! S&J, USA, long-term backpackers

We stayed in a private room so we don't know how the dorms were. However our room was clean and the AC worked great. The staff was very nice and helpful with anything ! It's a simple hostel but it's always clean! There's a small area where you can get coffee or tea any time. Also the area is great... More

A lovely little hostel which is fantastic for the price. The staff are helpful in helping in places to eat. The location is very near the bus stops to the national park as well and the location is near lots of restaurants and bars as well as street food venders which help out for those on a budget.
