    Walking distance to most of Georgetown's highlights and plenty of restaurant options close by. Very cheap per night. Spacious dorm rooms, plenty of room for luggage. Lounge room on 5th floor is spacious. Beds are comfortable. Self-Laundromat is practically next door, less that 10MYR for washing & drying and takes approx 1 hour. Bus tickets can be booked at reception and include pickup from the hostel.

    Air conditioning use is prohibited between 12pm and 5pm, they literally come and take the remotes away and if you want it on after 5pm someone in the dorm needs to go and collect a remote from reception. Bathrooms are filthy, and are not cleaned, I stayed for 1 week and other than the bins being emptied daily nothing else was cleaned in there. Shower and toilet and in the same room and rooms are constantly just wet, everything leaks - sinks, showers, bidet hoses. Supposed to be a 'shoe free' hostel but given the cleanliness I chose to ignore. Breakfast is woeful, I'm usually happy with just toast, however the bread offered is stale and obviously extremely cheap it is almost inedible, after one morning I chose to stay in bed for the rest of my time there and skip it. Even the 'free tea and coffee' is premixed in urns to obviously regulate costs.

    Nice room and comfortable bed.

    Breakfast is terrible. Just bread with jam and coffee or tea.

    The room is quite cosy and comfortable. Each person got one locker space with key, pillow and mattress (of course) reading light, a plug, blanket and towel. The most favourite spot of this hostel is the Lounge on 5th level. Yes, I like this room very much. You can chill and relax here, watch TV, enjoy free coffee or tea, read some books or make friends here. The washrooms were rather impressive with its spick and span condition, well-maintained despite it’s on sharing basis. It is also suited for those young and tech-savvy vacationers who wish to explore the city of Georgetown without burning a hole in their pocket.

    The wifi connection in my room was bad. It was also very hot during the day. Unfriendly staffs.
