Liked: It was very clean and the bed were comfortable.

Disliked: The walls between the rooms are very thin so it is noisey, the breakfast was adequate but milk was not provided and it would have been nice to have something else to put on the bread instead of jam. The owner is hardly ever around to ask questions and there aren't any maps so without the help of anyone else staying there, you wouldn't know wherw to go or what to see.

Liked: An apparently good hostel but for one point....

Disliked: An hotel for travellers is first of all a place to sleep. Paper thin walls and windows to the corridor makes every rooms ridiculously noisy.(you can hear whispers in the next room!) It's a shame but I can't recommend the place.

Liked: This is an amazing hostel. The owner really knows how to cater to the needs of backpackers having been a backpacker himself. He is very friendly and always ready to give advice. The hostel is super clean, offers free wifi or 1 hour internet for just 2 ringgit, free breakfast and is very quiet. Also you can hire 2 brand new bikes for just 20 ringgit- which is perfect for reaching the Portuguese Settlement and St John's Fortress.

Disliked: Nothing
