“my favourite guesthouse in the universe”
Reviewed 13 January 2012

this guesthouse is full of character. it is decorated with quirky and eccentric stuff plus the vibe of the place is very "malacca". sam keeps the place in tip top condition and is a very obliging and friendly guy. excellent location, excellent value, divinely lovely place. don't think twice, just stay here!!

This funky guesthouse is a bargain of your holiday. Clean, tidy, cute. Sam and Alan are very friendly and helpful, probably the most friendly and helpful people you have never met in the world. I care about the service and the atmosphere, and this place gave me both, don't waste your time look around for other guesthouses, because you might end up dealing with some idiots.

Room Tip: You might want to have some ear plugs if you are a light sleeper.

We spent several nights here and Sam was more than helpful. Perfect little locaiton and clean spacious room with a nice chillout area downstairs in the atrium. Heard the call to prayer, but able to get back to sleep easily enough! Good value.

We stayed in Jalan-Jalan for 4 nights and this place is just fantastic. The friendly owner Sam had a little smile on his face all the time and nothing was any trouble at all.

We stayed in an AC room for 65 Ringgit a night in his little annex down the road form the main guesthouse. It had fantastic sitting area with tea and coffee, fridge, free wifi and Internet and the room itself was huge with a funky 70's style bathroom.

The location is 5 mins from jonkor street, plenty of great cafe's and eateries around and it was also very quiet.

We did have a peek inside the dorms which looked a little cramped but if you splurge on a room they bar definitely worth it.

The guesthouse is just in front of the mosque, so don't be afraid to be awake by the prayer at 6.30am...
In the middle of Chinatown, the location is perfect.
We really recomended this place for small budget. You will not regret this choice!
