Upon entering the hotel room (White Room), we realized that the floor was dusty. Okay... I did read previous reviews about their cleanliness of flooring but I would have expect it to be in clean condition already since there was already feedbacks from customers about their cleanliness. So I guessed you just have to wear slippers the whole time when you are in the room to make sure your feet is clean. I've booked one capsule pod at the same time since we have 3 pax and the room can sleep only 2 person max. With the price I paid for the pod, I would say what you pay is what you get so don't expect too much either. The pod room is accessed with their security card and their door security system definitely was a huge factor why I do not recommend their pod bed. Whenever you scanned and opened the door, the security alarm would ring for at least 10 seconds, even after you closed the door immediately... so can you imagine, if you are sleeping and 2am someone in the same pod room goes to toilet? Yup, you will be awaken by the door's security alarm... The bed sheets have this strong detergent smell and I found a lot of hair/dust on the bed upon climbing into the pod. Overall still bearable if all you need is just a place to sleep. Location was still good, walking distance to all the tourist spots and there is a coffee shop/lots of cafes nearby. If you are heading their during their Lunar New Year for praying purposes, this is really a good location since it's just right behind the event spot. I really enjoyed the convenience of this hotel's location. Not so with the cleanliness and comfort.

Such a nice hospitality, I stayed ad single room - female pod. I have ky own privacy, very comfy and cozy. Suitable for backpackers. The location is very strategic for you to explore georgetown area

Need prayer room for muslim customer
- Backpacking
Horribly noisy and stuffy, this was the worst place I ever stayed in my life. Plus they ripped me off and charged me a MYR 50 "tax", which I know nowhere else charges.
Overall is okay, the staff is very polite, the hotel location is very strategic, the service is worth the money. However, there is lack of praying room/space. This hotel have many potential, by providing prayer room, will surely be good to company
