Really good location. Close to the bus station so great for a stop over trip. Matt is really friendly and helpful when it comes to onward travel and accommodation in the perhentians. I will stay again on my return journey

Nice little hostel, and the owner is lovely. We were the only ones staying though so it was a little quiet!

We only stopped over in Kota Bahru but the day markets were so amazing! Timur is close to the food and markets and Mat was very friendly.

Just the best hostel. Ticks all the boxes. Mat, Ivan and everyone that was there were just so nice and hospitable. They took me out for food, gave me suggestions as to where to go in the area, everything. Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. Good vibes and can't wait to see you all again soon!!

It is an odd place, but suited my purpose. I was all alone un the hostel. Matt, the operator, would come in sometime after 10pm to watch movirs and eat with friends. Place was kept up to college apartment cleanliness standards.

Great place to stay for one or two nights! This was just my stopping off point before getting to the Perhentian's and it was perfect. The owner took me personally to a great food spot and was a really nice friendly guy! Watched a movie in their front lounge from the heaps of selection he has available and took a nice warm shower. The bunk beds are comfy and the accommodation was simple and had everything I needed. Will definitely stay again when passing through!

Cozy little spot in the middle of Kota Bharu - only a stone's throw away from Pasar Siti Khadija, easy to access places with food. Generally quiet and comfy bedrooms - beds are a bit too soft though. Mat has been most helpful during our short stay :) Plenty of TV/movies to keep you entertained in the evenings when the city town becomes "dead" by 9 or 10ish pm.
