Reasonable location only 10 minutes walk to Jonker Walk and close to 2 shopping malls and a supermarket. The guesthouse, itself, is of average backpacker standard... the rooms are sparse and functional yet a reasonable size... the shared bathrooms were below par with one only big enough for a toilet (the shower was non operational) and the other in need...

We had a pleasant stay here! It's a budget accommodation so it'd suit students or backpackers best. The place is kept very clean and it's in a great location. It can get a little noisy with the weekend market down the street (Pahlawan Marketplace) and the walls are thin so hope for considerate fellow guests! Two of the showers weren't... More

I was expecting more from the hostel based on the great reviews, but I was rather disappointed. The people there were fantastic and very helpful, and the price was very reasonable, but I would not recommend this place overall. The room wasn't clean or comfortable and the bathroom was dirty and had cockroaches. My friend and I seriously considering switching... More

Friendly staff. But next time I pay a bit more for something nicer. It was just a bit basic especially bathroom for an older traveler like me. I'm sorry I have nothing more to say but it wants me to write 200 characters so hope it's happy now!!!

The stay provided high value for the cost paid. Me and my wife traveled here as I wanted to introduce her to a bit of backpacking. The room was small and cozy but good enough for a couple especially as you come to the room mostly to sleep after sightseeing in the city. The bath is shared and is kept... More

Stayed here for about a week. The guesthouse has a nice bright and airy atmosphere in the communal areas. Double ac room was small but absolutely fine, bed large and comfortable. Tea/coffee and water is provided all day. Standard toast and jam breakfast. One downside was there is too few toilets/showers but we didn't have to wait long to use... More

An all round good hostel and good value at RM17 per bed in the dorm. The room itself is nice as it's not bunks and there is a lot of light. We didn't find the noise too bad - only on Saturday night there was a bit of base. There's a cute lounge and hang out area with lots of... More

We arrived very late (around 10pm) in Plaza Mahkota and we missed the night market and also, it was really scary that time of the night so we just opted to sleep to prepare for the next morning. It has a very homey common area with cable TV at sofas. WiFi signal is weak in our room upstairs so we... More
