    Location was perfect for tourist.

    Breakfast wasn't really good. Of cos cannot expect like 5 star hotel but their breakfast is not worth it and don't waste your time wake up early in the morning, and we suggest to look for outside food instead.Kicthen very messy every morning, always ran out of coffee and no staff willing to do service and we have to called them instead to refill. Their breakfast are only white bread and jam. Toilet and bathroom are not clean and hair are everywhere. Staff wasn't really friendly, especially female staff, everytime we step out and step in the hotel, their face just like grumphy monkey lol.(wasn't sure if they jealous or tired or whatever!). Room was fine, but blanket are too thin and really not comfortable.

    The view as we were driving away.

    They moved our things into a different room two days into our stay without informing us because they had a large booking that were being moved into our dorm. And the staff? Laughable. If you walk past and they acknowledge you from looking at their phones, then you must be lucky. The larger lady on reception is as miserable as they come. Avoid this place like the plague. Oh, and the WiFi? Doesn’t work, either. See screenshots.

    The bed in female dorm and toilet was very nice. Got iron as well. Lvl 5 common space was nice to hang out and got water filter at all time. Location is walking distance to Georgetown hot tourist spot and convenience store are ample.

    Definitely could use a curtain for each bed as we all could use a bit of privacy and because it is a dorm, people comes in and out at an unexpected time. Breakfast was super simple = tea & coffee & bread + jam.

    All the facilities is great

    person who stay below my bed was checkin earlier and take both her and my locker..have no place to put my things. Tell the staff and he ask me to ask personally to that person who not in the room. hostel shall makesure all facilities is available bfre every checkin and also makesure all the customer follow the rules to avoid uncomfortable environment to others. I book for 2 day and just stay there a day. SAD!!! here I share bed of customer who used my locker and have messy things around

    Good window view. The bathroom surprisingly CLEAN. It's shared bathroom. No shoes are allowed in the "walkway", which is supposed a good thing. But it will pose some challenges for elderly if they were to take off shoes at the door before entering the room. The door area at hostel rooms level are cramp, so not enough chairs provided. Many room options are available. There are couple room, there are bed dorm style as well.

    The room has not enough plugs. The mirror is directly facing the bed, which makes us a bit uncomfortable.
