    Nice and clean hostel. They put on a movie every night if you are up for it. Lots of information available. A bit odd was the fact that they went into our room for renovation without giving us a heads up. It was no problem to stay the rest of the day after checkout.

    Good place to stay in Ipoh for a couple of nights as they give you info on everything there is to see and do, as well as good restaurants! Double room was comfy and had everything we needed! I'd get out of Ipoh ASAP and head for the caves and parks as there isn't much to do in the area other than concubine Lane which is overrated!

    Staff were incredibly welcoming and there was a really friendly atmosphere in the hostel. Recommendations were excellent. WiFi was the best we’ve seen so far, which was a bonus. Facilities were good and tea and coffee provided- amazing! The location wasn’t great, but Ipoh itself is quite spread out, and grab taxis were incredibly cheap. They arrived within 5 minutes regardless of where we were. Overall a great stay

    We had a pleasant stay at this hostel. It is definitely worth the money, however, the only concern is that there are no plugs near beds for charging the electronics.

    Mari was ok. nothing outstanding, but good enough. Powerpoints in the room were centralized by the window, not by the bed. staff was friendly and helpful enough, but there were no scheduled hostel activities outside of a nightly movie. very much a hostel where you are left completely to your own devices. if you want to meet people its really up to you to make it happen. bars and restaurants in the area a bit pricey. security was fine, no problem. would probably stay again.

    Pros Good location Big kitchen and common room Bedrooms fine with air con Cons No plugs or lights next to beds When we booked it said it included breakfast and it also says this on posters on the bedroom door but this is not true There are a few staff/people who live there and whilst a few are helpful, some staff would just look at their phone and text whilst talking to you Also some would use the kitchen equipment and not clean it so you would have to. Nice enough for 1/2night
