    The best advantage staying here is Location and Low Price. It is so easy to the nearest Bus Station, Market, Shopping Mall and easy to get into Bus No 200 to the Teluk Cempedak Beach. It was an excellent choice. The facilities was I hoping for in every hostel I visit, is to have your very own night bed lights and every bed should have a charge points for our charging needs. The rest are ok.

    The place is pretty worn in with squeaky beds (but good mattresses) and old bathrooms, but for the value it was okay. Smiley staff, stocked kitchen, good fans and air con in the rooms, clean rooms and common area but the bathrooms could be better especially the floor and sink. Breakfast was just bread and jam. I don't really appreciate being charged more for the female dorm in order to feel safe when sleeping at night. Was an ok spot to stay for the night.

    As one of the only proper dorm hostels in Kuantan it's actually quite decent. It has all the facilities you need (although the water filter needed replacement). Cleaning around the kitchen area could get an upgrade and training the staff to help with providing information for the guests would help the hostel's rating as well.

    Our room was tiny. But we only stopped off for one night on our way to Tioman Island and it was ok for that. We did watch films on the tv downstairs, they have lots of dvds to choose from which was good.

    Just an awful and depressing place. You do not get a feeling of welcome or any kind of appreciation as a guest.

    Bed bugs in all the beds which we had, do not stay here, very dirty. I believe this used to be a popular destination but has clearly gone very downhill over the years.
