This place is very basic. When you enter, you walk straight into a dorm with many beds. We had a private room with shared bathroom. Both bathrooms were very dirty and so was the rest of the place. The bed was uncomfortable.

Cozily furnitured, amazing prices, friendly international faces, convenient eateries, and the best host! I booked this place last minute and late at night (9pm) via facebook messaging to the Memory Guesthouse JB page. Being so last minute, i did not expect to get a reply and was prepared to spend the night at Senai airport. Imagine my delight when Roger... More

Well my partner and I decided to walk and it was quite far from what we had in mind. None the less, if you're looking for a place to REST and RELAX or you want somewhere out from the city, then this is the place for you. Taxi should cost less than RM10. Roger was really welcoming and friendly. He... More

Friendly staff, friendly people, located in a very quiet area. 15 minutes walking to the center. Rooms and dorm are basic and humble but clean and nice. Wi Fi everywhere, possibility to wash clothes, possibility to cook, tea and coffee all along the day. not a bad choice

Gave us so much info about Singapore and the surrounding area, plus good tips too. It was clean and most pleasant stay. We decided we wanted to stay with him again, which we did on our... More

I decided to stay in Memory Guest house because of the 50th anniversary celebrations in Singapore and also because the hostels in Singapore are super expensive in comparison to here. Roger, the owner is the most friendly guy that you could ever meet. He looks after you as if you're his own children. The bed's are comfortable and there is... More

This place is amazing... and the new owner Rodger has changed the name to Memory guest house, so if you see either name while trying to find it, don't be confused! It's worth the little walk from the main bus terminal at JB (maybe 20 minutes on foot), and he has a few bikes you can use to go explore... More
