Good only for a sleep. Shower not working well, tap water keep running all night (noisy), TV cannot be used, room too small and cramped, smelly towels, no drinking water, no soap/shower foam. Should be better with the price stated.

Gua Musang means Cave of the Civet Cats or foxes and the limestone hills here are packed with holes and the main cave behind the old railway station was believed to be home to a pack of mysterious civet cats spawning various ghostly legends portrayed in the 1960s comedy thriller film Pontianak Gua Musang. Gua Musang started as a railway town and was originally a remote and unconnected to the rest of the country. After that, a rail was built in the 1980s and this place has connected to the rest of Malaysia.
