Under new management the place is undergoing refurbishment, hence only very good and not excellent, but besides that the view is to kill for, i open my window and staring right back at me is the amazing " Menara Taming sari" what can only be describe to all that hast seen it before is a massively tall flag pole that has skewered a huge donut, which then travels vertically up and down and rotates 360 degrees, giving you a breathtaking view of the entire city. The hostel is only a short distance from "Jonker street" with all its quaint buildings and shops, but if you are too lazy there is an open market all weekend just 15 steps away and the "Makota Parade" with its excellent "Food court" and shops. The Hostel itself has 'Sit down" conveniences, which was a relief (:-)) to me as there were enough sights outside for us to have an adventure with. They have hot and cold showers and drinking water and cooking facilities available throughout the day, and if you are really lucky and contribute towards the cost you can pitch in and join them for dinner. All in all, great value for money and a right comfortable stay.
