One of the best hostels we’ve stayed in and one that I would definitely recommend. All areas were very clean with thoughtful touches all about the place (free toiletries and hairdryer in the communal bathrooms, plants dotted all over, even twined around the plumbing in the toilets, an honesty box for drinks, even cheap chilled beer in the fridge and a beautiful handmade quilt by Mrs Lee on the wall). She’s a mine of useful information for her guests and is able to assist in arranging transport at reasonable cost. We felt that Mrs Lee was genuinely interested in giving her guests a comfortable and enjoyable stay at her guesthouse. I was especially interested to talk to Mrs Lee as I shared an interest with her in needlework but I also learnt a little about her life as a Chinese in Malaysia; I’ve always been rather intrigued how people manage linguistically when living in a country where speaking more than one, completely different, language is a necessity. The only negative was one night out of four when the sound of karaoke kept me awake. My partner on the other hand seemed to sleep through most of it. The other nights were quiet.
