We met other travellers in KL who told us about Timur as we wanted to stay somewhere before Perhentian Islands. We got more than we expected. Matt the owner is very good host, as he travelled all over Malaysia and Thailand too. He gave us very good Thailand travelling tips - thankyou!

I literally used this guesthouse as a stopover to get to and from Perhentian islands. Mat, the owner, has a cool little setup there. Feels more like a cosy apartment than a hostel/guesthouse. It is actually his apartment so feels homely. Very laid back atmosphere and he has tons of movies for you to watch on his laptop. He's a...

It is very close to Kota Bahru bus station and city centre. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Not a lot of people there. Facilities were clean, everything pretty basic, but fine. Good price. Dorm where I stayed was small with a fan, no blanket though.
