We had a great 3 nights at Kuantan Backpackers. Jessin the owner of the hostel was super friendly and helpful. The location is excellent for people taking the bus into town since the bus station is only a few minute walk away. There are many restaurants around with a market across the street. There is a free bus that takes you to the beach and to other areas of the city.
The hostel itself is very clean and comfortable, there is a great supply of movies and you can even paint on the wall if your the artistic type. It's a great atmosphere and if we make it to Kuantan again we will definitely stay here again.More
