“Affordable, simple but clean with wonderful owners/hosts”
Reviewed 18 January 2011

Three of us stayed a couple of nights at the Nipah Guesthouse. The location was great, the rooms and bathrooms were simple but impeccably clean. The owners are genuinely friendly and helpful and really enhanced our brief visit to Pulau Pangkor. There is a common area where one can hang out comfortably, read a book, prepare and eat your own breakfast, and chat with friends. They provide basic breakfast items and cooking supplies. This is a small operation and therefore sustainable. I would definitely come back and stay at the Nipah Guesthouse again!

Highly recommended if you are looking for value for money. It is a simple place, but cheap and clean, with a very cosy atmosphere. On the downside, walls between rooms are thin so you might want to bring ear plugs. Alicia and Anuar who are running the place are among the most service minded people I have ever met, and they really make you feel at home. In general I would say that people in Malaysia are very friendly and helpful, but Alicia and Anuar take it to another level.

I stayed at Nipah Guesthouse with my husband and sister for 2 nights. It's off the main road, but the location near Coral Beach and food stalls is very good, just a few hundred walkable meters away.
The guesthouse is quite new and very charming. There are several types of rooms. We got two bedrooms in the fan-only "dorm-style" building. The bedrooms are part dorm, part bedroom, in the sense that they are separated from the 3-bed dorm by a wall and lockable door, although the wall does not go all the way to the ceiling. This was not an issue for us, because the dorm beds were empty on the nights of our stay. The bedrooms and dorm area were extremely clean and well taken care of. The shared bathroom (shared amongst the three beds and the two bedrooms in that building) was also extremely clean and had cold shower only. The weather is hot, so that was also not an issue for us.
The building had a common area with tv, coffeemaker.
The other common area was a large, clean, covered, outdoor breakfast/chilling out area with many tables/chairs, fridge, stereo system, fans, book swap, kitchennete. We enjoyed this space quite a lot, especially since we had good free wi-fi reception there as well as in the rooms.
Although the accomodations are not five-star, the owners' extensive experience working in a beach resort hotel is reflected in their professionalism and standards of cleanliness.
We would stay there again in a heartbeat. Probably the best place on Pulau Pangkor, and at a great price!
