The best hostel on our vacation hands down.
First the room. Very spacious and clean (though bit tired). There were AC and fan, dresser, mini-fridge, good sized bed, little sofa and a table. So at least for us it was more than sufficient.
On the outside there were a small pool with few sun chairs and and a hammock.
Communal area had a small kitchen, bar and several tables to eat, drink and socialize.
On the bar beer costs 3 ringgit (0,66€) and soft drinks 2 ringgit (0,44€), so yeah, cheap!
Also, the bar works on self service, so no need to wait for the staff - just put your money in the box and fetch a drink yourself.
Staff was also great. Most of the times when someone checks in, they introduce them to the people who happens to be in the communal area at the time, so it really helps to break the ice.
Also they arrange some excursions like fishing trips (which we unfortunately missed), but every participant seemed to like them.
Location was good enough. Lots of restaurants around, few minimarts close by and the main street, where you can buy touristy stuff was within walking distance. Taxis were quite expensive on Malaysian standard (fixed prices), so renting a scooter (30 ringgit/day, small scooter) is good way to explore the island.
Overall, highly recommended. Would stay again!
