    The place is reasonabaly clean. But is located very far from the town. If you want to go to Tanjung Aru for sunset, is better to book a Taxi for return trip. Because after 5.00pm, no more bus service.

  2. Ling Yean From Malaysia On November 30, -0001

    I paid a little only to get great satisfaction. The staffs are really helpful and friendly that we felt like being home. Thumbs up for the cleanliness of the premise too. Large bathrooms equipped with water heaters served us right. If the wall of the dining area on the 2nd floor can be removed and renovate to become a balcony, this will surely improve the air circulation and also provide the lodger great river view ;)

  3. Genefer From Philippines On November 30, -0001

    We had a great time staying in this place. Staff are very friendly and accomodating..Just keep it up.

  4. WANG From Taiwan On November 30, -0001

    The main issue to complain about the free internet connection being always of line or slow..., Internet is the best way that many backpackers keep in touch with others people ,and to plan the next trip.I hope can visit soon and find improvement soon.
