It´s quite hard to rate this hostel. Because on one hand there´s Lucy and I´m shure she is a very lovely person. But we had the feeling that she is just too long in this business and she does it only for the money now. For example she is getting annoyed whenever somebody uses something too long/too much and you feel very controlled while there.
So we didn´t feel very comfortable. And the toilets and showers were really not clean at all. Never in Malaysia had so dirty toilets. And as she closes the backdoor when she goes to bed, you cannot wash your hands after 11pm. So when you use the toilet at night, you will have to wait for the next morning to wash your hands :(
When there was heavy rain, it was raining into our room onto our bed and she didn´t really care about that. When we asked her about a discount for that night, she was angry at us, she said what extras we had already got, like she made our laundry (what we had payed for).
All in all, we hope that Lucy will find a good moment to give the hostel away to someone else, as she is not working with passion and pleasure anymore and that´s what we felt.
