    Breakfast (bread, butter, and jam) was 15 minutes late, but everything else was pretty nice, nice balcony (though full of smokers), clean floors in the dorms, lots of advice for what to do posted up on the walls. Only place I've stayed at in Malaysia that didn't have mosquitoes in it.

    Fairly modern hostel. Most areas were kept clean except the kitchen. Was in a good area as far as night life. Only stayed one night so not sure what they offered as far as activities. Staff behind the desk wasn’t great.

    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.

    Not sure why but I didn't feel very comfortable staying here. They didn't let me hire a towel, the atmosphere was a bit odd. Someone's bunk bed completely collapsed during the night which was hilarious, but very fortunate that no one got hurt. Still, overall probably worth it for the money.

    it was fine - had nice showers, but the kitchen area wasn’t very clean so we never used it. The staff wasn’t very helpful, but we could walk most places from the hostel

    We weren't expecting luxury for the price. However, the facilities were pretty worn down and could easily be improved: it would help to install a door between the balcony/smoking area and the bathrooms (and I'm a smoker), also to prevent the smell from a dumpster coming into the bathrooms. There were dirty grooming tools (nail clippers, ancient toothbrushes, hair brush full of hair...) in the bathroom. Pros: the bed was comfy, it's cool that they provide drinking water and the showers are good.
