The staff was very good the food was ok too. The room I wish they can improve more with solid material so you can't hear noise out side. The AC work properly but the bathroom is so freakin small. Over all is ok for stay one night but if you backpacker traveler this is good place for you.
Strategic location, cheap. the backpacker's dream.
Satisfactory service ,, staff very friendly and helpfulll ,,, only minus would fit this evening to check my phone is not lifted and email also was not returned ,,,
Friendly service, clean, and very informative, strategic location
+ Strategic location for food search + check-in and check-out process. + clean towels - his mattress is hard - the walls are too thin so the next room speaks sounded. better choose a shared bathroom room, because its attached bathroom is ugly.
Strategic location near tourist and dining center, friendly service, clean rooms and hotel only its small bathroom, feel welcome to stay for 3 days here. Wifi is sometimes down, except on the main floor. Appropriate price 😍
When we came the first time, the door of the hotel (can only be opened from the inside) for a long time opening, but we've pressed the bell for a long time. In the end it opened, but that any membukannya tourist who was staying at the hotel TSB. The second one we requested a deposit of RM 52 (RM 50 will be refunded upon checkout, and RM 2 TSB regional tax). The second day after our checkin, we exercise morning around 6am but no receptions that case. Arriving at our day of checkout. We exited the hotel at 5.45am to catch a bus rapid to the airport, but as the previous day in the morning there was no receptions, but we have to accept the deposit money that we gave at the beginning of the time of check-in at RM 50. Finally we wrote on a piece of paper to the value transfer (our rights) to the bank account one of us. However, up to this writing we've made, we have not received a transfer of Heritage Sixteen.

Clean and Perfect Location
Basic and clean room, shared bathroom has good shower. Bed is comfy, air-con is cooling. Breakfast is decent with friendly front desk staff. The only downside is the wooden wall is slightly bad in sound-proof. Then again we are here to experience the heritage stay and this is what makes the place special. The location is perfect and near to the happening Chulia street and other famous street food. Will not hesitate to come back

This hotel looked ok but is a little pricey for what you get. We left after one night as the walls are so thin you can hear everybody else's conversations, and join in if you like. One of the walls in our room didn't even meet the ceiling. Much better places for the same or less money.

Nice place
I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights. It's very cozy and quiet. Not many people. I booked a bed, but all these days I was just alone in the room. Breakfast is included, good location, cooking class is nearby, clean. I live that I can walk barefoot there. It feels like I am home
