“Good local place”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

We stayed here for 3 nights in a dorm. I have to say the room was rather small for an 8 bed dorm but was comfy with aircon. You do take a shower on the patio haha but it's ok. Clean and hot water is all you need. Close to town. Good value in Malaysia.

Ok if you want a dorm room but don't bother with a double - they don't exist.

Despite what the staff tell you, the showers are not ensuite (although showering on the communal patio area might be considered 'private' by some?!

Shockingly bad value for money compared to other places within 2 mins walk.

AND I got bitten by bed-bugs.

AVOID!

Finding this place was a little difficult, but worth the walking around. We stayed for one night before heading up the mountain, then came back for another night before leaving KK. It's incredibly quiet being away from the noisy traffic, unlike most of the other places. Clean and basic, but definitely value for money.
