It was a very good hostel with everything a backpacker needs. I stayed in the six bed dorm and it was very small and therefore crowded, but I guess that's what six bed dorms tend to entail. I liked the lounge area downstairs but it lacked the amazing cold air that the upstairs had, so it was a toss up. Perfect location though and the Indian restaurant next door was amazing. Thank you! Especially for doing our laundry!

Very nice and cozy living room, good location plenty of restaurant with local food, shopping mall within 10 mins walk, but mostly great people that made me feel at home!!

The staff is very friendly, especially Sophie. She will take you running with her in the morning if you ask nicely. If you come on between 2am and 7am, they have to open the door for you, which is a bit of a pain, but they were always there within 10 seconds when I got back late. The free breakfast is toast, fruit and cereal, but hey, it's free! Showers are hot, and the place is very clean. Check out Jalan Alor, the next street over, for great food and night life.

Excellent location with many local eateries just down the street and shopping centres less than ten minutes away. Good security. Hard mattresses. Squeaky bedsprings. This isn't really the place to meet people. It seemed quite cliquey and the owners, who live on the premises, appear aloof. A smile and a little small talk can go a long way.

The hostel is nice but it only has one AC. So it could be a little warm.

Really great chilled out atmosphere. Extremely helpful staff. Location was out of the way enough for it not to be too noisy but also just round the corner from main street food area. Could do with a re-paint, also steadier bunk beds

Staff intially seemed a little rude, but turned out to be very nice. Lots of good information regarding local area and travel etc. laid back vibe, free breakfast and tea etc all day. Clean and very secure, right by golden triangle and played good music in chill out area.

No outstanding complaints. My primary issues are that the A/C is only turned on at night (there isn't a unit in the dorm room, so you rely on the air to spread from the other rooms) and the atmosphere wasn't super conducive to meeting other travelers (it may have been that there just weren't that many other people there, but the common room didn't really lend itself to be social in design) .

It's a home hostel, they have very few beds and it's run by its owners who are all the time present. They have cats so don't go if you have any allergies or don't like them. The air con is turned on only from 8 PM to 8 AM. Breakfast is ok. The owner was very helpful when I asked how to get to my next destination.

Super good location, like 5 mins walk to the shopping malls. Clean, cozy for a fair price. Wish I had time staying longer
