Although the price may seem enticing, I'd seriously recommended splashing out that extra 10/15 RM and having accommodation that's clean and doesn't leave your skin crawling!! On our arrival we spotted a poster in the hallway slating another hostel about it's bed bugs and rude staff, advising travellers not to stay there... If that wasn't bad enough, after staying here...

As other travelers mentioned before: nothing special or delux here, but it will do. The rooms are small, concrete boxes with a bed and a stick of furniture if you are lucky. We opted for a fan room with outside window (the ones on the second floor have a balcony overlooking the busy Jalan Sultan). They are a tad more...

Friendly cheap place to stay for a couple of nights. Great communal bar on the rooftop with other travellers. Plenty of fellow travellers here to share local information and things to do. The cheapest, if not the grandest place to stay if you're on a budget.

Had many bed bugs in my room... Quite dirty with some cock roaches, too. Would Not really recommend this hostel. But its cheap, and if you dont have bugs its okay for 1 or 2 nights. So Check your beds exactly

Nothing to complain, you get what you pay. The place maybe is not the most beautiful in town, but the location is perfect, rooms are clean and the price is reasonable. We don't need anything else, so we really liked this place. The shared bathrooms were always clean and even with hot water. Staff was friendly and helpful, stored our...

The location is in Chinatown and not to far away from the bus station. It is surrounded by a lot of street kitchens and in the ground floor there is a restaurant. I didn't try any of them but they looked pretty nice (you can buy raw food and boil it at your table). The Staff is nice and speaks...

We stayed a few nights in double room with shared toilets. Room was very small but seemed quite clean at first. Then we noticed that there were A LOT of rusty-brown spots and stains in the mattress. Later we learned that the stains were bedbugs excrement. After few nights there were nearly one hundred (yes, i counted!) VERY itchy bites...

I stayed here last night and if we had been paying more attention we would have found it quicker as it's clearly signed. In Chinatown there is plenty of good food on your doorstep along with market stalls with clothing, sunglasses and watches. We shared a room for three which was perfectly fine, simple and clean. The mattresses are quite...
