        Exceptional”

        Location is near Filipino Market (3 mins walk) so it was easy for me to rush there for last minute souvenir hunting. In fact, food is found everywhere nearby (non-halal food). A grab ride to the airport costs me RM9 for a distance of about 7 - 8 km, very accessible. The 'space' that i stayed in was clean but the comforter got sweaty smell. I didn't mind at all because i was already tired when i reached there. Bathroom and kitchen were clean and very comfortable. A nice place to enjoy nightlife in KK and seeing the sunrise. Will definitely come again.

        Will recommend this place if you are a solo traveller, the cleanliness met our expectation and the staff was very friendly. Bedrolls are very comfortable (of course after putting out the odour). The only thing I could have criticized is the toilet space is too small. Will come here again for the next visit!

        The tourist hotspots are within walking distance. The price is really worth the stay. They provided limited choice of breakfast such as breads, milo and coffee but it's enough for me. They even provided washing machine but there's limited space to hang the wet clothes. So we chose to wash and dry our clothes at the self service laundry which is located at the next block. Just google it. Parking is available but limited and you have to pay to the person incharged.
