I stayed for 5 days, and it was nice, clean, quiet, just as you would like it. The hosts were cheerful, helpful, and made me feel at home. The area around was filled with restaurants, and there was a good selection of reference materials on the general area, and the surrounding countries. My host got me bus tickets, and had... More

We made similar bad experiences as the other people, who gave a comment here. The owner approached us at the bus station, too and persuaded us to stay at his hostel. "Coincidentallyl" someone just cancelled his room reservation. So we had the room we wanted. Our room wasn't clean at all. We found a used tooth brush under the bed,... More

This is a fantastic guesthouse highly recommended for travellers, 45 ringgits for a double air conditioned room with breakfast included. Michelle was also kind enough to drive us to the guesthouse from the coach station and pointed out some of the sites on route. The location is convenient situated near to plenty of restaurants and shops. The beer is very... More

Had a great time here. TV room, clean kitchen and a wonderful FAMILY make you feel really at home here. Had some cool conversations with the owners and even some drinks! Beer is one of the cheapest in town (hard to find in Malaysia). The hostel doesn't have a pool but if you're lucky they might bring you to one... More

Had an enjoyable stay at home sweet home. Was recommended by friends who stayed when the owners first took over a year ago. The hostel is very different to others I have stayed in whilst travelling, feels more like you are staying in their home although they are very welcoming. Excellent lounge area with cable tv, DVDs and surround sound... More
