At first I was in the female dorm where the whole house only have 5 people staying in. Well the price is very attractive so I book it straight away. Location is pretty good, walking distance to the beach and also further up is the Sunset Bar in Shangri-la, the sunset view there is awesome!!
I checked in around 4pm, and straightaway head to the bar to the magnificient view. Back into the dorm and unwind my day, it was alright. Kitchen is very simple, bathroom (near the dorm) is the very old style bathroom.
The night is pretty quite as it was weekday, however there is various TV channel in the common room so I can spend my evening there.
Dorm is pretty old so there are quite some mosquito, you ask for the scent to repel but it will be better if you are bringing mosquito repellent.
I stayed in the double bed the next day, environment is much more better. Go for it if you are no problem with the budget. Kitchen and bathroom in the front house is better.
Overall host is very helpful, they are very familiar with the places.
Laundry is available, very well organised.
Transport is convenient, taking cab from the city centre to here is RM30 (you can negotiate for better price!!)
What I like the most is the distance to airport, well if you are travelling light you can even walk there too!
Opting for luxury stay? not here.
Very particular on the bathroom? Hmm not here too.
budget and simple stay? Definitely yes.
A drop by before flight? yeah!
