We stayed in a double room which looked like a bargain. It wasn't. The sheets were really dirty (I.e hairs and evenr a dirty footprint on the sheet from the last occupant - they clearly hadn't changed the bed) and so was the rest of the room and bathroom. In fact it looked like it was last cleaned when the...

DO NOT STAY HERE! STAFF STEALS FROM YOUR ROOM! I would not recommend this place. We stayed here for 1 night. It is very very dirty, the bed is awfull. But above all: someone came in to our room when we were out and STOLE about 6000 ringit (= 150 euro's) from our bag. We are certain it must be...

At first they couldn't find our reservation. OK that can happen. Finally they found it after couple minutes of looking around whole office. Then we got a key of room that was prepared for us. Once we opened the door, we saw somebody lying on the bed. I complained at reception - I really didn't want to share bed with...

Even though I've already travelled and experienced a lot and I'm not very picky with hostels, this was without doubt the worst travelling experience ever... First everything seemed to be very nice there- the staff was very friendly and even offered us a cheaper price (I think they were also really desperated to get some guests) for a double room....

Squat toilets, sink and shower share same area...so dirty looking I didn't care to shower. Room looked liked it used to be a bathroom...had small tiles everywhere. Nothing felt clean. Old building that's surrounded by old buildings. Make sure there is more than one working key for your room, just a hint if u stay here. Close to everything and...

This hotel should be taken off from the Lonely Planet at this moment to keep LP's own trustworthy and reputation. Bed room and toilet totally are in run-down condition. Towel is not clean and has blood-like stained on cloth. Free PC and internet corner is available but all out of order. Not recommend at all!!

For what you pay it is great value for money! You get everything you need such as your own bathroom and ac and tv, the staff were more than helpful. You can get to sepilok orang-utans and the proboscis monkey sanctuary no problem. DO NOT go through travel agents it's so much cheaper to do it your self and also...

The rooms are basic and dated, but very clean and with air conditioning. The walls are pretty thin though! Toast, tea and coffee are included in the price and there's unlimited free filtered water. We enjoyed our stay here - the owners were lovely and very helpful and we felt safe!

My partner and I stayed here for 1 night during a 4 month round the world trip and are confident travellers. For RM55 (£11 at the time) we had a double room with a private bathroom here in November 2010. The room was very basic and painted a dark colour but it was very clean and all we needed for...

We spent 2 nights at the Winho Lodge at 55 RM per night. This included a toast and coffee/tea breakfast - which was the standard hostel offering in Malaysia it seemed. The room had a double bed and a set of bunk beds. There was a tv with some English channels even. They had free internet which was only sometimes...
