    The Brownstone's location is great. It's situated in Ipoh's New Town, which has the best and cheapest restaurants in Ipoh. It's also right next to Jalan Lau Ek Ching, which is a street with many bars and nightclubs. The hostel has many great common areas, including a garden, a roof terrace and a game room. I stayed during the last month before the borders would reopen in Malaysia, so there weren't any other guests during my stay. When they return, this hostel has plenty of spaces to socialise.

    A wonderful oasis of rest & relaxation in between the busyness and chaos of travel through Malaysia. The guesthouse itself is one of the nicest I’ve ever stayed. Impeccably clean, well appointed, w/ fun swings at the dinner table, lots of lush greenery to give a sense of peace, a wee kitty wandering around, welcoming garden courtyard, and a retro steampunk cafe look that offered such a chill & relaxing vibe, I extended my stay. Tony was also so kind & helpful host w/ great itinerary suggestions.

    Beautifully designed hostel within walking distance of the old town centre and all the main points of interest in Ipoh. Spacious dorms and spotless bathrooms. Staff were lovely. It’s a little bit pricey but the quality is there and you do get a free breakfast.

    Beautiful and well designed hostel. Good location. Cute cat there too! Great facilities. Has shampoo and shower gel in shower, and nice fluffy clean towels provided. Light breakfast provided - and free water, coffee and tea all day. Hostel was pretty quiet, so not much atmosphere. But that’s not their fault. Loved the swings in the dining room. Comfy bean bags and books in lounge area. Defo recommend!
