  • The guesthouse was so clean and the staff, William was so kind and helful. The private room I stayed alone for one night was big enough and also neat. However, it was quite uncomfortable without AC. More important thing you have to consider before your stay is traffic noise outside even after midnight. For me, it was too loud to sleep, and I did not even think about closing the windows due to the high temperature (stayed on July 25, 2015).

  • This hostel has a nice vibe and good staff. There is a nice rooftop sitting area and I met a lot of cool people here. However, there are no laundry facilities (the closest laundry is about 8 books away; 15 minute walk) and there's no real kitchen for cooking meals. Also, most of the rooms don't have any windows; which makes mornings and turning on the lights very awkward. The air conditioning is very good, but you will often wake up freezing. Very clean rooms and bathrooms.

  • Great value for the money and great location, in the middle of Chinatown and close to some of the major touristic attractions.The staff is nice and helpful. The hostel itself is nice, cool decoration in the hall and toilets and cool rooftop terrace. The only bad thing is that there's only WiFi in the ground floor, a minor issue but one you should be aware of. Toilets are European style, which is helpful. Would go back for sure.

  • The staff was extremely kind and considerate. She gave us a map and detailed explanation. Room, kitchen and bathroom were very clean and tidy. Furthermore, the location of guesthouse is the best! 위치가 정말 좋습니다. 걸어서 메르데카 광장, 센트럴마켓 다 갈수잇고 집앞 모노레일역 근처에 무료셔틀도 다닙니다 .gokl 버스 그리고 근처에 차이나타운도 있습니다. 저렴한가격에 편히 쉬고 좋았습니다.
