    One of the best hostels I’ve been in so far! Very clean. Nice staff. Simple but good breakfast, eaten on swings (very instagrammable :D). Beds were comfortable with lots of privacy due to the curtains. Lockers were great and save. They provide maps at the reception which shows you where you can find the attractions and restaurants nearby (very helpful, I recommend taking one of them). All in all, for me as a solo traveling woman it was a very good choice!

    Lovely hostel, I like it. It’s the same as photos. Free breakfast but I didn’t try as there are too many delicious food in Ipoh, free parking across street with security, walking distance to main area for food. Bad -no aircon in common area, shared bathroom and toilet, its kind of like “open” (I stayed at twin ensuite room, so toilet and shower inside) It is killing hot in Ipoh during my visit (40C), poor sound-proofing, mosquitoes can get in and very noisy at night with cars / truck running

    Lovely hostel in new town Ipoh. It was a bit quiet when we were there, but the whole town seemed quite quiet so nothing to do with the hostel. Location was very close to the hawker market in the new town and a 10/15 min walk to the old town. Really beautifully designed hostel in a good location.

    Really nice hostel with great facilities. It was very quiet though, which was a shame because if the hostel was full you could tell there would be a great vibe. Staff were helpful, and everything was clean

    Reasonable place - beds were comfy but ended up getting bitten a lot by mosquitos due to no glass in the windows. Staff were mostly polite and helpful, apart from when locations were off the hostel-produced map. Little atmosphere to speak of, but a nice place to stay nevertheless.

    This would’ve been a lovely hostel if it had been a little busier. The social spaces and facilities were great and the beds were clean and comfy. Although we didn’t have any the breakfasts seemed good too ! There was a smal kitchen and coffee and tea available at all times with somewhere to fill up your bottle too. Just a shame it was so quiet!
