I absolutely love my stay here!! It was a wonderful one thanks to the staffs. William showed us around the place when we first checked in. Everyone here was so nice I’m already missing this place (& Ipoh)
- Backpacking
Clean and worth the price. The room is a bit warm.
- Backpacking
RM20 of deposit is required.. RM10 for the key and another RM10 for towel if you want on top of RM2 which is not returnable. I seriously don't understand this but I just choose to ignore... apart from this the rest are thumbs up...
- Backpacking
All was good about this hostel... right in the middle of the town. Foods are close by with reasonable prices..

Comfortable. clean, very friendly service. Breakfast is provided.
The hostel was nice. The location is also nice
- Backpacking
Hostel nya nyaman untuk kisaran harga backpacker. Handuk mandi terpisah & bayar lagi. Sarapan oke lah. Tetapi lokasi agak sulit ditemukan dikarenakan daerah ruko-ruko. Mari hostel ini terletak di lantai 2 ruko, dan lantai 1 nya resto, lantai 3 nya butik. So far puas sih, kalau ke Ipoh mungkin akan stay disini lagi.
- Backpacking
sesuai dengan budget yang ditawarkan, tetapi so far puas dengan hostel nya room bersih, kamar mandi bersih, ada fasilitas laundry, tetapi lokasi hostel agak susah ditemukan dikarenakan berada di lantai 2, dan lantai 1 nya restoran, lantai 3 nya butik.

Good budget choice.
Friendly, welcoming staff and a good central location makes this a good choice for the budget traveller. This is a modern hostel with contemporary decor. Unfortunately its accoustics are poor and sounds echo, though not as far as the rooms. There's a good common sitting area with couches, bean bags and lots of power points. Free tea and coffee are available in the kitchen and there is a fridge if you want to store food. The shared bathrooms were really clean with hot showers and hair dryers. The dorms are big and well kept but they could do with some extra power points. Highly recommended.

Best hostel in Malaysia!
I met up with a friend here and it was a great base to explore lovely Ipoh. The hostel is modern and clean throughout. The staff working at the hostel are pretty knowledgable and can tell you the best places to get all the local delicacies and how to make travel arrangements. Included breakfast is basic but a nice touch considering the dorm rooms are so cheap! Wifi is good throughout. AC is really good. Free tea, coffee, hot chocolate and water throughout the day is great. Movies shown every night on projector! What's not to like? Well done guys you're doing a great job!

Felt Like Home
I stayed here for 9 nights. I am glad I got to stay here. I'll give you my honest opinion (I want to say all the good things but would also like to give some honest opinions). Pros: - CLEAN (especially the bathrooms) - GREAT STAFF (You have to meet William) - helps you to call uber - MOVIE @ 8:30 every night - Filtered cold, luke warm and hot water - Wifi is great in the lounge - Beautiful lobby for socializing and also to work - Met so many amazing travelers! - Bed is clean (great pillow) - Many bathrooms to use CONS: - the wifi in the bedroom isn't the greatest (which is fine) - the bed is about squeaky if there is someone above you moving - sometimes the staffs are careless - wifi not working (haven't paid for the month)...etc - a bit far from the main area (Old Town) - walking distance but not right in the old town - far from the Ipoh Amanjaya Bus Terminal - have to get uber (not too expensive) - One thing I "disliked" is the price of the hostel always changed and also different websites gave different prices. You see people paying less and some paying more on the same night. HOWEVER, I REALLY LOVED THIS HOSTEL. WILL DEFINITELY COME HERE AGAIN. MANY OTHERS ALSO EXTENDED THEIR STAY HERE! GREAT!
