Located at the industrial end of town in a converted warehouse. Bed was comfy. Wifi didn't work at the beginning but once it did it was fast and remained that way all night. TV obviously had taken some damage and was pretty unwatchable. Breakfast was basic, as is to be expected from hostels. It is 20RM taxi from town to Hostel and I think you would be better putting that money towards a better location.

The hostel was fine, it is just far from the city centre. The private room was adequate. Annoying that we couldn't control the air conditioner in the room. They offer a lot of tours and day trips from the reception so it can be helpful if you want to organize through them.
1) you MUST bring your own toilet paper OR buy one from hostel 2) mattress is so bad that I have to take them off the bed and put on floor with extra mattress 3) Internet doesn't work real well on 2nd floor, thus I have go down to use Internet 4) Staff is not trained well to be courtesy or helpful. 5) Lockers are PAID by rent and is NOT secure because I can be able to open another locker below mine with same key 6) They have lame excuse when saying its HOSTEL but I am happy wiht new hostel now
