Expect ants and cockroaches in the room and/or bathroom. The bathroom had no ventilation and smells like sewage. The shower doesn’t work because the water pressure is too low, plus, saw mosquito larvae... More

Rm15 per hour. The food is excellent and the service rendered by Fauna restaurant owner was good. All food are prepared on the spot instead of pre cook or... More
