The receptionists are approachable and nice. Clean room. Tourist spots, night market, bar, food stall/resto are near. Super near! I was just a bit disappointed because when I booked the room it said with breakfast. But the whole duration of our stay, we only ate pancit for 2days. On our last day, there was no food left for us. We were expecting “breakfast”. Coz we didn’t include breakfast in our budget since we thought we will have our daily breakfast at the hostel. But nevertheless, our dtay was awesome. Huge room. Clean. The room smells so good. Clean sheets. PS: I hope wifi will already be available inside the rooms soon😊 Will surely be back soon😊

The hotel staff is very irresponsible of their guests. We deposited 50myr for the key and told that it will be returned when we will check out. We informed them that we will check out the earliest time the next day at 2am since we have an early flight. They told us that the are closed by 12am so we need to knock at the door to get the deposit and return the key. We knock for an hour at the reception room even shouting but they choose to ignore us. I asked helped at the neighbor bar but they told me they are always like that to their customers. We ended not able to get the 50myr deposit. We just gave the key to the grab driver we rode going to the airport for him to return. I demand my 50myr to be returned on my account! It's much money to be lost because of their irresponsibility!

Great services from the staffs. But for now, the premise is still in renovation, better to call them first to ask whether the room you wanted is available or not.

The price is fine but it is so uncomfortable to stay. When I was there, my room was not cleaned, full with dust. I don't know how they can allow their customer to smoke in there. My floor was fill with smoke smell. They did not room cleaning everyday until I have to go down and let them know. Wifi is good but their management is very poor. I had encounter water problem and they just ignore about it. There are bar at ground floor, so you have to tolerate the sound of it until midnight. They should inform to their customer about the noise at night when they do bookings. I stayed there for a week and it was very disappointment.

The staffs are easy to approach but having trouble communicating with them cause of language barrier, once you checked-in they will just give you the gate & wi-fi passwords, then your room & locker keys, then you can do whatever you want. The beds are bit dusty, no hot shower, slow wi-fi. Good location and good prices (room rates).
