Might be the best dorm I've ever stayed at. For 15rm you get a massive dorm with 12 beds (actual beds, none of them shaking, nervous-making bunkbeds!) including free internet and breakfast. Clean sheets, blanket, towel, pillow case, soap. Good fans on the seiling. Only minus is that there's no door, but the hostel is so clean and safe it... More

The place is located at harmony street. Great but at 6 am you will be greeted by loud sound from the mosque and hindu temple across the street. The room itself was OK albeit at bit small. Most of the rooms have no window hence it is strongly recommended to get aircond one. Wifi is a bit hit and miss.... More

Highly recommended! They have very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are not to big but very clean, with air con and fan as well. We didn't book in advance, just walk in from the street and we could choose the room as they had quite a few available. There is also computer with an internet access in the reception hall... More

We stayed here for two nights in a double room with a shared bathroom. The room was very small, but that wasn't a problem for us. The bed was comfortable and the room and bathrooms were clean. We payed 41 ringgit per night for a double room and within that price, we even recieved two coupons for 5 ringgit each... More

Easy to walk around, not too busy. I found this guesthouse by accident just walking the streets. They were very keen to get my business... More
