The hotel is just next to Masjid Raya and shopping mall. Location wise, I would give the hotel and excellent point. But room and amenities, it's poor. I've stayed in a lot of budget hotel but this the worst hotel I've ever stayed. Air con units is not cold, rooms is smelly, toilets is sucks. I even wake up with... More

Was staying here one night when arriving Medan at night and had to get some sleep before moving on next day. Got basic fan room for 100k IDR, and during night really was hoping for AC. Room was so hot and the bed was not breathing at all or something, so at the end slept maybe two hours. And the... More

This hotel really cheap.. It's good for short stay.. I would not recommend for long stay.. It locate just beside the grand mosque.. Easy to go to 'mall' to buy some groceries.. Towel that they provide too small for adult.. The room has mosquitos.. Really annoyed me..

Very close to Masjid Raya. Walking distance to mini mart and restaurant. Small room with basic amenities. WiFi only available at lobby area. A bit far from Merdeka Walk. Need to take cab and fees around IDR50,000

have twice stayed here in the superior (best) air-con room .. still a most basic room but the a/c worked ok and the bed was clean .. all was quiet and we slept well. For the price a good choice .. if wanting better can pay more at many other nearby hotels. This area has many good eating options.

We booked this hotel since we were just spending a few hours to rest our eyes as we reached Medan town at 10pm. It's labelled as 'Backpackers' hotel and it is befitting its offering. The mattress was lumpy and the room was too small for a medium-big size person. The Aircond was noisy and toilet smells. But you won't get... More

Over-priced for Indonesia. Very near a loud mosque. No shower and terrible toilet, which was western but it was bad even for Indonesia! An indonesian style toilet would have felt more hygienic. However, very friendly staff and okay for one night!

The cheapest room have only basic bed and a small toilet, some are smelly and they do not have window.... More

Cold water, cockraoches, smelling toilets without flush etc. Do I need say more? If you have some money to spend, there should be better places to stay... Location was quite good though... Close to sites ('walking' distance).
