shannon.di Great place to relax for a few days. Surrounding countryside and towns are quite interesting if you are able to hire a car and go exploring. Otherwise, relax by the beach and play vocable all day long!

Cleggy Very welcoming - it was a public holiday, so the owner picked us up from the airport in his car and gave us a tour of the city! The hostel was perfectly clean, had comfortable beds, hot showers and a lovely breakfast with a wide range of fruit, fruit juice, sticky rice, cakes and toast.

cindy_sim2 The hotel is overly cautious with cost. The staff will enter your room just to turn off the aircon and fan without asking for permission. Even though we did not drop the key at the front desk. The share-toilet rolls (inferior quality) always run out empty, we have to remind them to replenish the rolls often.
ruzdreg Clean place, room was not too crowded. They provide clean sheets and blanket (which some places don't provide). For those a bit finickity about toilets (general layout and cleanliness), the external space for bathrooms (connected by the balcony) is a Godsend. Clean and modern, more spacious than the other backpackers place I've been to (extra 1 lavatory, 1 shower, 1 lavatory+shower). Outside bathrooms are more spacious, good for plus-size travelers. The inside bathroom has 2 lavatories and 2 showers. Having a female-only dorm is a plus. They have 24HR security and small locker space is free with an RM10 deposit. No curfew; you're free to go in and out as you please. Wifi is free, plus you can use their PC with internet (has SKYPE) free of charge! (other places charge you for this, big downer I reckon). Free basic breakfast (hot drinks and toast), cable TV and a comfy reading space. The staff are very friendly and helpful, they'll be able to assist you with tours, and you can simply have a look at their bulletin boards for the available tours. Getting around is easy, almost everything is within a 5-10 walking distance. A +10min walk will take you to Jesselton Point, essentially a jetty with modern stalls where you can go to any of the 4 nearby islands for snorkeling or scuba diving. Lotsa banks and fastfood restaurants too, so no worries! Enjoyed my stay immensely, will defo go back.
