Stayed here 5 nights for 40MYR/night (5MYR more for room with extra bed + window). Pros - cheapest private room for its location; good A/C; comfy beds; walking distance to Little India, Chinatown, big malls, backpacker area, buses, etc Cons - dripping shower head, but really? little noisy being the room that's street-side, is all

It was small, stuffy, had no window, the pillow had stains on, the fan would only point towards the bed if you tied it round with string, and the light would only come on if you twiddled the tube....

We dropped off coloureds and whites (as we've been doing with no problems for the last 10 months in various countries all around Asia and elsewhere) and they put the whole lot in the wash together,...
