    The environment is so good and clean. The staffs are very friendly. The hostel is very convenient since it is in the middle of most of the restaurants and places to visit by walk itself. Will stay more in future if coming to Georgetown.

    Couldn't fault this hostel at all. The staff are next level, they get you involved, chat with you, make you feel welcome. Swimming pool is a big bonus. Common area is great to watch movies, eat and chat to other guests and the beds are great too. The whole vibe of the hostel was on point and I enjoyed every second of my stay. The location is perfect for everything that you need in town. Showers and bathrooms are super clean too. If you're staying anywhere in Georgetown, it has to be here!

    Can’t fault this place! Full of friendly people, great for solo backpackers and partying. Staff are absolutely lovely and organised a ferry to langkawi for us with transfers. Some of the showers were broke when I was there but never had an issue waiting for the showers. Would recommend getting a smaller dorm because the bigger dorms can get a bit hot. Overall a great place to stay!

    I ended up staying here for nearly 2 weeks in total whilst in Malaysia. It has all of the facilities you need and more. It is well kept and all of the staff are professional and helpful as well as friendly and more than happy to join you for afew drinks. The pool and bar area are also great and there is also a great atmosphere every day and night whether you want to chill out and relax or play drinking games and party. No complaints, great hostel!

    After travelling for 5 months and just sitting on tiny stools, rigid wooden chairs, or the floor, it was an absolute treat to see massive couches here! I can't remember the last time I was so comfortable. It's worth it to stay here just for that

    Very Good

    It was a good experience, especially considering the MCO. Heard that it is a party hostel but there were not too many people when I visited. It definitely can be cleaner.

    If you want to get any sleep - don't come here. Dorms were way too crmaoed with no space or security for luggage. Slept at the top of a triple bunk bed with no barrier so not safe at all. Beds had plastic wrap on them so very uncomfortable and loud. Rooms too hot. Staff were very intimidating as we came in, with the man very aggressive and abrupt as he showed us around. Although, the place does have a good atmosphere by the bar and pool area in the evenings. Definitely better places to stay

    We where staying here for 3 Nights. And it was not worth it. The staff is okay, helpful but still not that Nice. The bed was dirty when we Got in the room, and you slept really bad because there is plastic under the sheeds, so you get really hot during the Night. Worst of it all there was s**t all over one of the toilets and they did not clean it when we where there. So i guess that non of the toilets was cleaned. I would not recomend to stay at this hostel!!!
