    I had a nice stay at this hostel. Room and bathroom clean, beds comfortable, walking distance to the main town where the cafes and street art is. Staff were nice. I also made some friends here and had some drinks on the terrace :)

    Stayed in this hostel for 3 nights originally, we ended up extended for an extra night as we felt this hostel was very homely and a nice place to be. The facilities are good, great kitchen, which me and my girlfriend used every night to make meals, they also have complimentary tea, coffee and water (hot and cold). All in all a great place for the price, with a great location. Very comfortable social area with couches and fans. Staff were helpful and accommodating! Thankyou Mari Hostel!

    Not bad. Easy to meet people with the common area. About a km walk into the tourist parts of town. No security lockers in rooms or plugs in room. I didn’t find out until later, but I think my blanket had beg bugs because I have a line of small bites on my arm. Although I seemed to be the only one, so it’s not a huge problem for the room.

    Very Good

    I stayed in the dorm room for one night while in Ipoh and it was just a weird set up. They don’t have power outlets next to all of the beds so you have to charge your phone outside of the room in the common area which is annoying. I’m 6 feet tall and was placed in the bottom bunk which normally isn’t an issue, but the distance between the bottom bunk and top bunk is incredibly small. I could kneel on the ground and my eyes would be at the top bunk. Needless to say I hit my head on the top a lot.

    Our stay was okay. Staff were lovely but a strange atmosphere in the hostel, and bathrooms definitely could have been cleaner. Good if you’re looking for cheap accommodation in Ipoh, just don’t expect tooo much.

    This place will do for a night if you need it but I wouldn't recommend staying for long. All of the lockers were taken so we had no place to put our valuables. The whole place has a vague scent of smoke as there is a smoker's room attached to the main bathroom and no door between them. There was a crusty stain on my pillow. Bathroom floors were slimy and smelled like pee. I did enjoy the free water and access to a kitchen. Also they played a movie at night which was nice.
