    As said above

    Quite clean, good facilities, everything works but to have people checking in late at night is quite miserable for any hostel stayer I think!

    Walking distance to most of Georgetown's highlights and plenty of restaurant options close by. Very cheap per night. Spacious dorm rooms, plenty of room for luggage. Lounge room on 5th floor is spacious. Beds are comfortable. Self-Laundromat is practically next door, less that 10MYR for washing & drying and takes approx 1 hour. Bus tickets can be booked at reception and include pickup from the hostel.

    Air conditioning use is prohibited between 12pm and 5pm, they literally come and take the remotes away and if you want it on after 5pm someone in the dorm needs to go and collect a remote from reception. Bathrooms are filthy, and are not cleaned, I stayed for 1 week and other than the bins being emptied daily nothing else was cleaned in there. Shower and toilet and in the same room and rooms are constantly just wet, everything leaks - sinks, showers, bidet hoses. Supposed to be a 'shoe free' hostel but given the cleanliness I chose to ignore. Breakfast is woeful, I'm usually happy with just toast, however the bread offered is stale and obviously extremely cheap it is almost inedible, after one morning I chose to stay in bed for the rest of my time there and skip it. Even the 'free tea and coffee' is premixed in urns to obviously regulate costs.
