I consider this basically what a backpacker hostel should be - cheap and friendly. Sure it looks totally dodgy when you first see it, but the staff are super friendly, and happy to give you whatever advice you need, and the other travellers are generally a good crew. You want to know why you don't see many good reviews on... More

We checked in, everything was fine, around 11pm as we were getting ready for bed we saw a bed bug - backpacker's worst nightmare! We packed up our things, really not looking forward to trying to find another place to stay at 11pm, but we can't stay. Head down to the lobby where we try to, quietly, talk to the... More

Owners are very friendly and helpful. My bed was infested with bed bugs. I heard from several other guests that their beds had bugs too. After asking around, the problem seems to date back to at least December. Hate to write a bad review as the owners are good people, but bed begs can spread easily among backpackers and they... More

The owners are helpful, sort you with info and maps etc and will let you check in very early if needed. Whole place is just a bit dank & dirty. Our room was dusty and had bugs. Couple of toilets between everyone and the downstairs one is pretty rank smelling. The wifi only works in the front area and this... More

If you are looking just a place to sleep, this is ok place to do that. Staff were ok and helpful. We arrived to Georgetown 6 am, we get the room 8 am, in any other hostel this wouldn´t be possible without extra charge. There were double locks on rooms door.

They have computer available and can help you planning when going elsewhere. We rented a scooter and drovw around the Island and found... More

It is the worst guesthouse! My cell phone was stolen at the first night in this guesthouse. When I reported this to the boss Dan, he said he was busy with guests. And when I tried to borrow his phone to call my cell phone, he even lied to me that he didn’t have any phone! Finally, it was Sam... More

Next to the reception you can sit and use the wifi, but when they close the gates at 10pm, they expect you to move to your room. I was obliged to go away. As I was busy doing some stuff on the internet I asked him to just sit for like 10 more minutes and then move to my room.... More

I stayed here for one night on my way from Penang to Langkawi. The rooms are some of the cheapest around (one of the cheaper ones we wanted was closed for renovation) but the rooms are basic. They were hot (with a fan, no a/c) the sheets were clean but looked worn and grubby, there were only 4 bathrooms for... More
