Perfect Location”

Location; Value for money; New facilities

I stayed only one night and I liked that check-in was quick. Front-office personnel spoke English and were very helpful. Facilities are relatively new. My mattress was comfortable. I appreciated the electrical socket and reading light in my bunk! The hostel was a block away from the food joints along Chulia and the way was well-lighted. It was within walking distance from the main bus station, but I don't recommend walking if you have a trolley luggage--you'll be walking on the street as sidewalks are almost non-existent. Overall, this place is probably your best option within this price range.

Very value for money you are paying”

1.How welcome the host (Nic&Simon) are giving to all guests 2.Good location 3.Female dorm size was spacious,comfortable bed,clean bathroom&toilet

The best thing I loved about this hostel was how welcome Nic&Simon showed to all guests which I found it's very important. After been tortured from previous hostel, I felt so much ease&comfortable to staying here. The female dorm size was spacious, having curtain for each bed was giving you a private feel (a light&electric plug provided), the bed was comfortable to sleep but wish I could have a bigger pillow, the shared bathroom was airy&clean, never have to wait. Only a bit downside was the aircon would work only in between 9 pm-10 am, however, I didn't have any problem coz was out all day long. In the nutshell, I liked what I stayed - thanks so much Nic&Simon, I'll be back again :)

Backpack in Youth Hostel ”

Location & Cheap

Located in pintal tali is a walking distance to KOMTAR and the adjacent mall such as Prangin Mall. Food is widely available in lebuh baru and macalister road (just walk a little bit further). The separated shower and toilet are clean. Kudos to the management. My stay is in the second floor of air con dorm. Everything is good and fair for the price been pay. However if you are staying for more than one night I would recommend you bring mosquitoes repellent or citronella oil. When I leave the dorm for Ipoh I can count many mosquitoes bite. In addition, is good to know that the aircon only open from 9pm(?) to 10am. So is not wise to stay at your dorm bed between 10am to 9pm, it gets real hot. Overall is a good experience. The front desk is also cool. Will come again with mosquitoes repellent.

Well run, comfortable place in ideal location. ”

Curtain around dorm beds, reading light, lockers, good clean bathroom facilities, strong wifi and quiet policy made the dorm as good as having your own room.

This place is well done. Staff were so responsive I thought each one was the owner. Staff went the extra mile and provided an airport transfers for me in the middle of the night - no extra charge! The lobby and dorms have a nice open airy feel about them, making the place a nice cool respite from the heat. Beds are comfortable and the place is clean. All that combined with the perfect location makes this place am ideal choice.

Stay was great, staff were helpful and if you're a backpacker or budget traveller this is a great stop. The dorms are individual sleeping boxes, which is much nicer than bunks as you have your own space and light and outlet plug. If you're travelling on a budget you can't do much better.

I'd say the cost and location and friendliness of the staff

My assigned bed in the dorm changed a few times... what was assigned and what I requested was different and the person in charge did get me a lower bunk. However, the bunk was a little unpleasantly warm though the room was air conditioned. Just my luck as other beds seemed to be better
