A nice cheap hostel. Dorm and facilities were fine. It's about a 15 min walk to the night market and some bars. A few places to see around the hostel too. Probably the best thing about this hostel was the owner. Rodger was so friendly, and he would offer to help and suggest places to see. A hard working, happy owner is so nice and refreshing.

The location is quite far from JB Sentral, you have to walk around 20 minutes to get there. But the vibes of the Hostel is really nice, feels like home and the owner and staff are really helpful so it's really nice to stay here.

Owner super nice, likes to talk with his guests. Dorm simple with small lockers. Bathroom reasonably clean. Wifi worked well. Taxi from City Square Mall to hostel took me only 7 Ringgit. Good budget option, would recommend

The location and the style of the hostel are suite surprising. Beds are little tent beds on one floor. There are all te facilities needed and the staff is welcoming but don't expect modernity. Plus is that books are available for sharing.

I really enjoyed my stay in Memory House. Roger is a lovely and caring person and really helpful. The facilities are clean, there are some places to eat just around the corner. Internet works good. It's a really good places to relax.

Not a bad word can be said about Roger or his cats. He is there for all his guests and his cats will probably check up on you in the night too. The main dorm is essentially two rows of cot-like beds in a long room which you access directly from the front door - which I'm not entirely sure is ever locked. As such security was lacking although you do get a bedside locker. Towels are free of charge.

The story begins with an old man and his two cats. Roger took over this hostel about eight months ago and wow, you can tell he understands the concept of hostels and travelers better than a lot of hosts. His home is your home. What JB lacks for in sights, Memory Guesthouse makes up for in that feeling of security, home, and community. I thoroughly enjoyed this little oasis in the barren desert and met many friendly travelers, which is also part of the backpacking experience.

Owner was very friendly! Room was basic but cheap. We had a good stay! Would recommend. Although, it was a bit out of the way.

Roger (the host) is an incredibly warm and hospitable person, who likes and cares for his guests and is a great partner for an interesting conversation. The conditions in his hostel are rather basic but everything a traveller needs is provided and the atmosphere there is great.
