It's very basic, old, but cheap and clean. Well, the bedsheets were clean at least. The room was really small, but it had a window and it wasn't noisy an night there. The staff was helpful, they booked a trip to Melaka for me. Good place for a budget traveler

Nice, clean and cheap. Not other guest house in the area were offering the same for that price. But if you get the room F7 make sure that they changed the net of the bad as it was badly broken and I had not so good sleeps. Comfortable positions near chulia street.

A short video of the hotel: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mp8Y5Yygxyc / the people who run this place are quite nice and run the place efficiently. The hotel is clean and relatively quiet at night time. Near plenty of food places.
