Thanks again Mani and Raymond for yet another great stay at the Roof Top. As it always is a very relaxing extremely comfortable stay in an absolutely spotless room. It's our third time staying there and it definately won't be our last. See you in a few weeks on our way back. Thanks again guys, Chris and Pete

Cosy little hostel, clean rooms, comfy bed, staff helpful. What you would expect for the price. Sadly we missed the cakes but we were welcomed with a lychee flavoured water. Has kitchen facilities for people to use. Well located to the centre literally a few minutes walk from jonker street.

Guy on the reception doesn't speek English and has no idea about the town. Owner only interested in money and than disappears. If you ask them to call bus company for you they say it's not possible. Any atmosphere here? Forget it. The most boring place I have stayed so far. Stay away.

After a bit of bad luck when it comes to lodging in Malaysia, arriving here was bliss! This place is hostalheaven, quite simply. The communal rooms are beautiful, cozy and great to chat up with fellow travelers. The living room has a big flatscreen and a dvd-selection which is nice if you crave a simple night in! There is a...

This is by far the best guesthouse I have ever stayed in. The owners were lovely, and so helpful. They give you lots of travel advice. The WiFi is excellent. The rooftop lounge area really makes the guesthouse perfect . I will definitely stay again

It's a sign of a good place - though they are renovating for the 2 days we wanted to stay, the woman told me of another great place to stay and talked me through getting a bus from KL-LCCT. She was very generous with her time. Next time we will try to stay here!

We stayed two day's in the RTGuesthouse. The room was spacious, had AC and was very clean. So was the shared showers and toilets. There is also a full kitchen to use and sometimes some cake on the table. Coffee and Tee is free. Upstairs there is the roof top with a front and back balcony, some tables and chairs... More

Stayed at the Roof Top Guest house for 3 nights in January. Mani was quick to orientate the layout of the vicinity, where to go and which restaurants to go to, providing you with a map. The place is secure and clean. No shoes are allowed inside. I stayed in the 4bed mixed dorm. There was no problem asking for... More

We stayed in the 4 beds dorm with our two daughters of 6 and 8 years old. The guesthouse is clean and well organised. As you can read, they provide cakes, cold water, warm water to make coffee or tea and fruits, complimenatry. They have bikes. The roof top terrace is nice. You can wash and hang your clothes there.... More
