I and my girlfriend stayed at Kuantan Backpacker for 4 nights.
The Place it self is really nice and clean. There is a free wifi, breakfast, tea or coffee all over the day, DVD, a lot of information about Malaysia, many games and a lot of friendly people. So for the 28 MR you pay you get a lot, just like in a hotel. :)
Also the position of the place is very strategic cause its close to the bus station where you can go everywhere and form where you will probably arrive :) There is a lot of good food around and also the a big store and a cheap laundry.
Jessin is the best owner you can find. She is a great person. She was backpacker herself for long time so she really know what we need and she know a lot where and how to go there.
We played some games with her and when she had free time she show us around the City. We also met her friends which are really funny. Jessin also organize a lot of events for Backpackers and locals, just like a group trecking to the waterfall and stuff like that so you will meet a lot of people and have a great holiday.
If we ever come back to Kuantan we will stay there again. For sure :)
For sure you will never feel boring here :)
