2/10 Poor

Bad service
Honestly, the service was very bad. First i come i checked in for family room is ok. Then when we enter the room was very small. There only 2 socket available. We are 5 person need to share 1 small room for family room. Then that night suddenly the reception told me to pay for another rm20 extra bcuz we are 5 person stay in bcuz i book for 2 person only. So what does it means by family room if only 2 person can stay in? Better i book for the standard room only... N if they told me during i checked in maybe i still ok. But they told after we have checked in n at night already. So thats why i said its very bad services.

8/10 Very good

Clean, comfortable and friendly, would stay again
We had a double room with private bathroom. The downstairs dining area was a nice place to sit with a laptop, and we enjoyed the mix of toast and fruit for breakfast. Our bedroom was starting to look a little tired but had a comfortable bed and clean sheets. Staff were very helpful and welcoming, and offered to clean our room every day. On our floor were 2 showers and 2 toilets, all very clean, shared between a double and 2 three person rooms. Laundry right next door, and lots of good cheap places to eat within 5 mins walk. Rooms with shared bathroom looked slightly smarter, and were definitely roomier, so we would choose one of these next time.

Very clean, basic but nice
We were looking for somewhere cheap but do not like a place that is dirty. The reviews said that it was very clean and it was. Not the flashiest hotel but it’s very clean and just what you need. Staff were always very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay here again

No elevator
If you are staying at the hostel, it is at level 4 without elevator. It is a disaster!

8/10 Very good

Not a bad, little hotel.
Decent, little hotel located within walking distance of many places - Philippine Market, Gaya Street Market, restaurants, shops, the water, etc. Nothing fancy, but a clean place with pleasant staff. Only disappointing part of the stay was breakfast. A couple pieces of toast and watermelon just ain't going to cut it.
