Staff were so nice! Amazing location next to small night market :) can get bus from airport straight to area! Close to Georgetown and the national park which is perfect for hiking! Basic facilities but still good :) mosque is close so 6am wake up :) but easy to get back to sleep or have an early start!


It was OK but definitely not the 91% rating we saw on Hostelworld at the time of our booking. It's a little rough around the edges but clean enough (really nothing special or memorable). Not the greatest value and not really worth going to Batu Ferringhi for.


Opposite to the beach, friendly staff, good for a relaxing weekend or as a base to visit the north of the island.
