After seeing the recommendations in the Lonely Planet,i decided to look elsewhere. Im glad i stumbled across this budget hotel. Firstly the price for getting air con, own bathroom and TV with fox movies & ESPN for 55MYR is outstanding in KK as you're usually looking at 60-70 for a shared bathroom.
Peter the owner is a fountain of knowledge and always helpful when asked a question.
Location is ideal, right in the centre, with a smashing food market across the road. In addition your halfway between the Jetty(port) and the bus station, so gives you easy access if you wish to visit the neighbouring islands (ask peter he will give you a voucher for a discount) or visit the beach for 1.5MYR on the local beach.
The only negative thing i have to say is the smell leading up the hallway (not to the room), as there is a dried fish store next door, but hey that is for you to decide.
Thanks for the stay
