    It was awesome!!! Everything was up to expectations. Suky was so helpful with information. Weather I wanted a bicycle or a restaurant to go eat to or simply just to get directions to go somewhere, she was there to help. The atmosphere was very welcoming, and the facilities were spot on. I would definitely stay here again!!

    Amazing hostel! Hot showers, lockers, comfy beds, fast WiFi, good location, maps provided and the best staff who tell you everything you need to know about the area, they let me store my bag for a couple of nights so I could do some days trips without having to carry a heavy bag. Highly recommend this hostel! It’s AMAZING!

    Vloft is a really nice place to stay in Ipoh! It's located very close to the old town historic district, and as you need to use a keypad to get in and can use the provided lockers, it's very secure. The staff was very friendly and helpful, answering all our questions about the area and providing us with pamphlets and information. There is no common space, however, so it's a quiet, relaxing place to spend rather than a backpacker community. I was happy they provided free shampoo, soap, and water!

    Difficult to find, as there was no obvious sign. I walked on the footpath right past it, for some way. When I walked back, the sign as on a column facing that way. The location was very good. Very close to the night market street, and not that far from either old town - in 1 direction, or Ipoh Gardens mll - in the other direction. Staff were friendly and helpful. Small and large dorms. Facilities quite basic - bed and 2 bathrooms - ok. Quite cheap, so pretty good value.

    Very small hostel, actually the big dorm is also reception and hallway. The small (4 bed)dorm was nice, but beds were very noisy. Suky, the owner, was very helpful and keeps the place clean (though balcony wasn't, on the other hand there is a balcony, that's something!). No atmosphere, but place is quite cheap and good to spend a night in Ipoh. The lockers were quite decent and the front door is locked with a code, so security was quite ok.

    Staff so accommodating! My bus didn’t come until late, but they gave me the code to let myself in and then I “checked in” the next morning. Not much of an atmosphere when I was there but I don’t think many people stop in Ipoh. Enjoyed my stay!

    The hostel is located in a great spot. You can reach everything pretty easily. Unfortunately the bathrooms are not the best and there is no basin to wash dishes in the “food area”. The owner is welcoming and he will give you great advice on places to visit, food and safety areas. Overall I am satisfied with the service receives.

    Good location to explore Ipoh from and get a decent nights sleep. The staff were rarely around however which made us feel a little uneasy, and the layout was kind of weird - you walk through the door and you’re in the big dorm room. We stayed in the 4 bed which was more comfortable and air con worked well, would recommend staying in there if you stay here, it’s cheap so that’s the main thing really.
