“Loved the North Boreno Cabin !!!!”
Reviewed February 9, 2009

This place is great. Knowledgable, helpful, and friendly staff !!! I stayed in one of the dorm rooms which was very clean. Also great restrooms and shower facilities. Free internet available right outside of the dorm rooms and also in the dayroom. BTW the dayroom downstairs is a great place to meet with other backpackers from around the world or to just relax, watch tv, or read. Just in my dorm room alone we had people from France, Ireland, USA, and the Philippines ! KK is a great town for walking around in and this hostel is only a few blocks from the main road and close to all the amenities you could want (KFC, Burger King, ocean front, and Centre Point Mall).

. Fare from the airport (Terminal 2) to here was 20 RM. I loved the place so much I am already planning a trip back here. A friend and I both stayed here and he is spending a year backpacking in Asia. He said this was one of the better places he's stayed at in his travels and he should know I guess.

If you stop by be sure to say "hi" to Arney who is one of the front desk people. She was very friendly and helpful to me, plus she is great to look at too. LOL
