The rooms were just packed the 10 bed dorm should only be a 4 bed dorm so there is space for luggage. Malaysians watching TV after midnight despite a 10.30 curfew notice above the TV not sure if they were staff of guests but staff member was present. otherwise and slightly below average hostel in a convenient location


No aircon in the common area. Very strong foot smell and very hot. Toilet very small, dirty and light not working. My friend had to p... in the shower because toilet did not work. There are other better options in the area. Check them.
