The place is what it is-but cheap, good location and staff who are hands on friendly and welcoming. Easy to find, close to food and transport. Max works hard here and it shows, was quiet when we stayed. Maps and help available for travel. Offer of toast and jam in the price.

We arrived at 2am after getting in late with no booking but the staff were helpful and kind. The rooms are clean and affordable, breakfast is simple toast and coffee. Only stayed one night but would recommend for anyone looking for simple, affordable and clean rooms.

The location is super strategic for solo traveller. It is also strategic to use the kelana line (pasar Seni).The room is super comfortable and clean. But, the stairs to go up to your room might get you tired if you are not used to going up to more than 3rd floor of building

I was there two nights. It's not expensive and it was comfortable. I did my booking in internet and almost right after doing that I got an email from Max, where was told exactly how I can get in that hotel. It was really helpful! I don't think I would have find that hotel other way so easily. And Max...
