          This is the one! You just need to book this.”

          Stayed 3D2N at this hostel. It totally gave me a whole new experience about traveling at Taiping. The hostel owner, Tricia, is superbly wonderful, very patient with my queries, great at recommending things to do and to eat at Taiping. We had a great chat and the other guest had a great chat too. The rooms are clean, well maintained, the process to check-in and check-out are fast and simple. The place has wonderful deco for IG. The cafe also serves nice drinks, which I had, sat at the table, do people watching and relax as time passed by. Taiping is a town I would definitely want do go back to visit again. And Sojourn would definitely be my first choice in selecting the accomodation.

          Though its a BNB concept, I truly loved the whole environment. One of the cleanest and comfortable place to go to. If you're not used to shared bathrooms, perhaps you wanna reconsider. Otherwise, its one of the places that I would give my full recommendation. And the host, Ms. Tricia is gracious as well as friendly. Surrounded by quite a number of eateries, this is definitely a place to stay in!

          Absolute delight ”

          The owner is very friendly and attentive. The place is small, but very neat and clean. Its location is also perfect for those who like to walk around in old town and lake garden is just within walking distance. Would love to stay here again when made a stop at Taiping next time. The one and only shortcoming is on sound proofing, which is unavoidable due to its close proximity to to the main roads.

          Clean, Nice Owner & Quiet”

          Clean, quaint (lots of personalized decorations/antiques) & quiet as only the front room of the shop house might have noise from the road. Four toilets w/ 2 having showers. So if full (16 guests), there should at least be enough toilets. Big space under the bed for luggage (key provided), fast Internet, free water/tea/coffee/towel, soap/shampoo provided. The owner is very nice/helpful but you should tell her when you are coming in case she is upstairs/out to lunch etc. Central Taiping is easily walkable & this place is maybe a 15 minute walk from the station.

          Great place to stay!”

          Hostel had a great vibe and it’s easy to walk to the gardens and zoo and other tourist attractions. The staff, Lin is great, super helpful with everything and has many recommendations on food, where to go, how to go etc. etc. The dorm is nice and comfy too and you have your own pod bed.

          Pleasant stay. Well managed. ”

          Had a pleasant stay. Rooms and facilities are clean and all you need, everything feels pretty thought-through and is well-managed. Location is great in terms of being right in the center, if you are a light sleeper though, it’s probably not the right place for you. It’s located at a busy intersection and the scooter-sounds at night are something to get used to. I stayed one week in one of the quieter rooms and slept well. Lin, the manager is lovely and always happy to chat and help you with whatever you need assistance with. Would definitely stay again.

          Beautiful old school hostel”

          Beautiful Old-School-style hostel, feels like staying in a museum :) The environment was so peaceful and quiet. I had a very good rest after long hours of travel. Stayed at double room, very comfortable bed. Toilets are very clean and spacious. Very friendly staff, and prepared early breakfast for us runners as we had to leave early for a run event. Very cosy cafe and balcony, with beautiful decors, antiques and plants. I will definity come back and stay next time in Taiping. Thank you Sojourn!

          I really enjoyed my stay in this smalltown which is unknown to most tourists. The location is very good, close to the lake gardens. The owner was very sweet and helpful and I enjoyed the small chats with her.

          Great location ”

          What I loved most was how central the location is. Walking distance to the lake and to most of the good eateries in the town. The hostel also has ample facilities such as a common area for guests to hang out and also I can easily refill my water bottle. Great and friendly host as well. The only challenge for me was having a room towards the back which was very noisy at night at it faced the road and the petrol station. Ie. Very loud bursts of air from car filling their tyre pressure which jolted me up a few times.
