I arrived here having booked a room with private bathroom, but upon arrival was told that the room had leaked. I was given a standard room with shared bathroom. This room was tiny and smelled like durian fruit, the room had a socket hanging out of the wall and not enough room to open a suitcase. The shared bathrooms seemed... More

Locations was alright as it wasn't our first time staying in the area. Staff was friendly. The room had a mouldy smell though but we were out most of the days so when we returned, it was just for us to rest. Bathroom was creatively done.

We arrived super early around 8 am and the room we booked won't be available until 1 pm. So we had to wait at the common area and went out to have our breakfast and lunch. That was what I was disappointed about because I had informed the hotel that I will be arriving early but I had to spend... More

Great location, just around the corner for bucket bintang and the main eat street Jalan Alor. Staff were really friendly and gave recommendations. We stayed here twice between flights and didn't have a reservation in either case, they were open to negotiation as we arrived very late at night on both occasions. Small rooms but comfortable enough. Clean shared bathrooms... More

A convenient little place right in the hustle and bustle of Jalan Alor. Stayed in a twin room, reasonable price. Just inside the ground floor corridor, it got a little noisy at time with guests passing through, and thin walls, but overall a very convenient, friendly place.

We stayed in presidential suite 5 nights with our 2 young boys. The room was ok but overall it is not a very handy place with young children: as decoration there are stones in the room which our boys kept on throwing the whole time, not very safe ...;-) also there is almost no common area where they could play...

Its a good and cheap guesthouse and on a quiet street. The toilets are nicely designed. The rooms are very small but rather comfortable. Staff is friendly. Localization of the guesthouse is also good.

“Quit complaining at cheap guest houses. If you don't like it after one night, you can try another and another to your hearts content in Asia. Be a happy camper no matter where you stay and you'll have a great trip. This place is 5 star in my book.”
