The rooms were clean and simple. The rooms have aircon which is great for the heat and humidity of Malaysia. It is also in a great location, a few minutes walk away from the fish market where you can get delicious sea-food in the evenings. The backpackers provide free transport from the airport (from but not to the airport) if you are staying for two nights or more.
There is a small kitchen that can be used by guests and the bathrooms/showers are outside the rooms.
If you are there on a Sunday, look out for the Sunday market two minutes away from the backpackers.
