          Exceptional”

          good location. certainly not the view but a few steps from the central bus station, market, various shops and services. I stayed almost 1 week and I can say that maybe in high season it is different but the staff follows the schedules so pay attention to the wait if you arrive after hours. friendly and helpful staff, not very involved and attentive to detail. for example, cleaning the fridge, clean but stained towels, clothes hangers to repair and 1 felt-tip pen or 1 paint working in the common area. Available simple bread +am breakfast, large fridge in the common kitchen and drinking water (I highly recommend replacing the external filter that does not work). A computer is also available in the common area. basic dorm with air conditioning and fan everywhere, cleaning ok. not much attention to detail but overall one feels at home and the common area is a mural where all people have left their mark. To consider that this is not a very tourist area. thanks for the welcome and peacef

          for what you get, you would normally pay less in other cities. But taking into account that there aren,t many tourists in kuantan and that it is the only hostel in the area, i would go back there.

          The location, in front of kuantan city bus stand, matches perfectly to discover the surroundings. Very welcoming staff. Nice option to have a break. Toasts, jelly, tea as breakfast. Clean rooms with a/c. Plenty of services : pharmacy, hawker food market, clinics, shops in the same street. Numerous sites of interest can be visited from the guesthouse using rapid kuantan or taxi : beaches, waterfall, river, amusement park, religious monuments, park, museum, the tin mines, the turtle sanctuary☺. The countryside around the town reminds north Brazil (Amazonas). I sincerely recommand it☺

          Location, Air Con & Location

          This is perhaps the only "hostel" in Kuantan and so you won't have much to compare it with. This hostel is overpriced and you can get much better accommodations in Penang or Maleka. The owner is an "absentee landlord" meaning she is never much on the premises and gives full responsibility to "foreign guests -- in the "work-away" program". Your first backpack hike will be up the long two level flight of stairs. The bathroom is a relic and filthy. The 'staff' made of guests (Poland, etc.) treat the place like their own home, don't wash the dishes, I left my linen at reception desk after check-out and it remained their all day until the Owner showed up. There are NO outlets for each bed unit and so I used the adapter linked to the A/C that shorted my Laptop power adapter and a new cord cost me RM15 and the adapter might need to be replaced and that is 100-150 myr. That would be almost 8X what I was charged for my stay. There was one nice 'staff' from Wales, but again, they don't do chores, no butter spread was available or coffee for the so called "free breakfast" -- standard toast and jam. The only great thing about this place was the location -- two blocks from local bus terminal and the room with air-con was comfortable. Although, all those "staff' who get free room and board or pay less for "fan room" suddenly pile in at night to all vacant beds to get that A/C on paying guest tab and the owner doesn't seem to care. The price needs to be cut and in half until the bathroom is remodeled and more amenities are provided. Locker storage in room though is brand new and works well. Bottom line this is a business and the Owner needs to put the profits back into the investment or over time this hostel will be the red herring that no one visits in Kuantan.

          Value for money, location, near to the bus terminal going to different places within kuantan

          The only backpackers hostel that's cheap but comfortable nonetheless. Nothing much to say. But if you are a backpacker, this is the most suitable place to find a cheap place to stay and it's actually really okay. Will be coming back there again to stay.
