Good 70%

Very cheap room! What you pay is what you get! Wasn't expecting much as it is a hostel but the room is spartan! Just the bed, pillows and blankets(which is as thin as a towel). The attached bath has 2 pieces of miserable soap that seem to be there for ages(don't think any one dare to touch it).

As it was a hostel, we didn't think that they provided towels. When we checked out, the owner insisted that we took their towels which wasn't given to us. He insisted that we agreed that the room was alright during checking in. He even wanted us to pay RM$15 per towel!! He also wanted to do an inventory of their towels to verify that their towels were missing.

I will not recommend this place. If you really really want to stay here, ASK FOR AN INVENTORY OF THE THINGS IN THE ROOM WHEN YOU ARE CHECKING IN AND CHECK EVERYTHING CAREFULLY!
