Overall it was OK. Location is good. Amenities are fine. My cabinet was dusty and broken. Only 1 out of 4 staff that I met was friendly. When I informed that the breakfast bread was molding (blue-green fungus), the staff didn't even say sorry, she just took it from me and went away to get a new one to put...

We stayed for 3 nights and were pleasantly surprised with how nice the hostel was. Lovely old building, you will have to pay heritage tax on top of room fee (1 ringgit per person per night). Beds very comfy and there is lock up storage built in to the beds for valuables which was good. Showers and toilets also very...

Just an average stay here. I was put in a 2 bed 'dorm' room, which was very tiny and a bit awkward only having one other person in the room! But the bed was quite comfortable and there is a strong air con. Not much space in the room for bags though. Bathroom is fine, but no hot water. Breakfast...

First the hostel seemed great. Online it was about 15 ringit or something. I didn't book so when I came in they said it was 30 ringit. I told them about the online thing, but I didn't have any internet. He said 'no problem we can do 28'. When I got up to my dorm I met 3 others: all...

The location was great. The staff were pleasant. We booked the double room, en suite with TV. The room was very small but useable. Unfortunately the bathroom floor was permanently wet because the shower leaked constantly when not in use and the drainage was behind the toilet, far from the shower. So going to the loo in the middle of...
