“Great location with a friendly host”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

I get the last room and one of the window facing the back alley so can hear vehicle sounds all day but it was no big deal for me. I love the comfortable double bed, the clean room & the air-cond!!! The room was just enough to fit the bed and a clothestand, it really basic since i did not need much.
There were 3 shared bathrooms which were not so dirty and had hot showers. The toilet really too small for those big size.
It is located just behind Jonker Street, so it is convenient to walk around the tourist area.
Free wifi here, although my room upstair still can connect.
But, i think it a bit overpriced, RM50 non-peak season, RM80 peak season.
