The room was small with a DYI bathroom attached. From the minute we entered the room there were hairs everywhere all over the bed, floor and...

Cheap, decent place to rest for a few days for solo travelers like me. Mr Ahmed was helpful too, allowed me to keep my bags there in their store room even after checking out so I can come back later to get them.

Hot shower, good bed, own balcony (stayed in the dorm), good price (22 ringit), in little India, everything near by, great owners. All in all: really good place to stay! They have laundry, tickets for busses (but they were very kind to tell me that the one around the corner was actually cheaper than they were) so they are also...

Over the years of extensive travelling, I've come to admire these rough around the edges sort of places. Where things are not perfect but certainly more value for what you pay. The real charm of such places is...
