“Our best hostel experience so far....”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

We have been travelling for 2 months, and this is by far the best experience yet. It's a good price, hot water, unlimited watch of films (big selection!), and the staff are so helpful. They have offered to collect our bus ticket for us to Singapore, and rang a hostel to book for us also!!
It's a very sociable hostel, despite only having 14 rooms, everyone is very friendly, and it is a very relaxed atmosphere. The kitchen is always very clean, and so are the bathrooms.
Can definitely recommend.

Room Tip: It's a hot city, so get a room with limited windows, or get air con. There is free wi-fi in ever...

Laid back vibe. Staff was a real nice bunch of guys. They will help you out with any questions you have and make sure your well taken car of in their country.
Clean affordable rooms. Clean towels. Hot showers. Free wifi, breakfast, tea/coffee all day, communal kitchen so you can cook meals if your up to it. A hundred different movies to chose from. Comfortable lounge area with lots of natural light, books, TV and DVD.
Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in all of Malaysia. Wish I could have stayed here longer!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: I took the room by the kitchen/bathrooms. Surprisingly quiet and nice light from the window facing a...

Hallo!! We are a couple of italian guys and we stayed in Tarvellers Planet Hostel for 6 days.
It is very clean, friendly and cheap place. It is absolutly a good choice! Go there, the stuff is awesome too. Many rooms from 35 MR with fan. During the weekend there is a night market infront of the hostel with a lot of different kind of food and many stuff that you can buy also.

The Owner Guna directly picked us up after leaving the bus!
The living room is very nice and offers you a TV and many movies, games and travellingguides,
the bedrooms are comfortable, we havent seen any bedbugs and they are also airconditioned!

Guna, George and all the other guys who work there are very kind, and are always there if you need some advice or just need help with your route-planning!

We met some really cool guys there and every evening we had som drinks in a nice funny round!
Being there was one of my Highlights in Malaysia!

Thank you for everything!!

I stayed 3 nights in the Travellers Planet with my wife and two kids, and it was perfect. It was the best place in a city I have ever stayed, Location is good, nice area. Rooms and common kitchen are very clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend this place to everybody, but especiialy when you are traveling with children.

Had a very comfortable stay here for 4 nights with my girlfriend. It's clean and tidy, homely and relaxed. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, and there is a very chilled out atmosphere throughout.

The place is spotlessly clean, with good facilities including a kitchen and living room. We would highly recommend a stay here. One of the best value for money places we have found in Malaysia.

Not located in the China town area, but in a much more chilled out neighbourhood, very close to the shopping district.
