    Rose is probably the best hostel employee I’ve ever met. My boyfriend and I booked 2 separate rooms because the mixed dorm was full the 1st night. The next night was the same situation so we were going to go to a different hostel but Rose offered to upgrade us to the private room for only 2 ringgit more! She also did our laundry for free! She was also super helpful with answering questions and knows a lot about the city. She helps people rent motorbikes, suggests places to eat for cheap, & more

    Amazing hostel! Not too big and not too small but has everything you need from a light free breakfast in the morning with tea and coffee, to free laundry AND access to the infinity pool and gym! Rose, the owner is amazing! She couldn’t do enough for us (even did our laundry for us). We arrived very very early and Rose made sure we could check in to sleep ASAP!! Nothing bad to say about this hostel!! Thanks Rose for having us!

    Great hostel in a great location! Rose is so welcoming and really made me feel like I was at home. Free toast and tea/coffee. The atmosphere was really chilled, which was perfect for me, but not somewhere if you want to drink and party! The place is super clean and I would highly recommend!

    The most pleasant of the pleasant, superbly run place of a high standard. Everything is new, clean and serviced. The person that runs it is the most ,most helpful and energetic. A bit further along the water this place is worth the extra coupla minutes, situated in a quality building with a lift with tons going on around it. A terrific choice and a big thanks.

    The owner is helpful and provides a lot of information in regards to trips, excursions and where you’re planning on heading next. The hostel itself is clean, has warms showers and a nice little kitchen. The rooms can be a bit small but the beds are comfortable and it’s always quiet from 11-7 ensuring you can get some good sleep. One thing I would recommend this hostel altering though is having a more prevalent sign in the vicinity of the hostel as I initially couldn’t find it!

    The room for eight people is extremely small. Actually to the point of suffocating. I travel a lot and never stayed in such a cramped space.
