I literally used this guesthouse as a stopover to get to and from Perhentian islands. Mat, the owner, has a cool little setup there. Feels more like a cosy apartment than a hostel/guesthouse. It is actually his apartment so feels homely. Very laid back atmosphere and he has tons of movies for you to watch on his laptop. He's a... More

I've been traveling in S.E. Asia for 30 years and this guesthouse is - if not the best value is a very close second. Mat the young owner is a fund of information and will help save you money. I felt very comfortable there which is not always the case for a 70 year old so all in all very... More

This is a great backpackers hostel and an ideal place to chill-out. The staff are very friendly and very helpful. Very close to city bus station and all the attractions. At night when there is nothing to do I was able to watch a movie with others. Coffee and tea were available all the time. I will stay here agin... More

As many others, this was a 1 night stop for me but I really wish I could stay longer, I felt I could relax there forever. The hostel a great value for money, good atmosphere, location, cleanliness, friendly staff and plenty of movies to watch. The city itself is amazing for any food lover or somebody who likes to interact... More

It is very close to Kota Bahru bus station and city centre. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Not a lot of people there. Facilities were clean, everything pretty basic, but fine. Good price. Dorm where I stayed was small with a fan, no blanket though.

Small, friendly & cheap hostel located in the centre of town near the local bus station & night market. Mat, the owner , is very friendly & helpful. He is a mine of information regarding travel in the local area, particularly the Perhentians. .

This guesthouse provided us with a bed for the night before our trip to Perhentian Islands. It's very basic, which I think is reflected in the price, but it's homely and the owner is extremely welcoming and freindly. There's a great little communal area and it's in a good location.

We stayed here before we went to the perhentians and when we came back. It's fairly cheap so a very good stop over. We stayed in the double room next to the dorm. The owner is a very friendly guy, willing to help you out with everything. He even got up in the early morning to say goodbye. The reasons... More
