since i am senior writer i usually dont write nice reviews but this hotel is nice. dont believe any bad reviews which are written in trip advisor as they are all false. i am staying here right now and i also stayed here 3 years ago. the place is still nice and the standards have not gown down.
i stayed one night in a single room and i paid 35 ringgit. thats US$10 per night. bathroom was not attached. bathrooms were clean though.
the second night i switched to a double room with a bathroom. i am paying 50 Ringgit per night. room is spanking clean, toilet paper and 2 towels are supplied and a soap. bathroom is small but not too small. it has hot water. and was also very clean.
considering this is a popular tourist destination, you cant get any thing cheaper and cleaner than this.
there is no food in the hotel but tea and coffee is available. free wifi with a nice seating area on the front is a plus point.
MY ADVICE TO ALL BACKPACKERS: STAY HERE.

Room Tip: better make a booking as it is usually full

Wanted to stay at the lodge but it was full so we had to stay here. The building was old and dirty. squat toilets only. Rooms were so cold I found it hard to sleep. Also, my mattress was incredibly uncomfortable. The staff working there were really unfriendly except for the middle-aged man. room was cheap (35RM for two doubles beds) but we moved to a different hostel on the second night. Only good thing was the wifi.

We were taken to Kang Hotel after we had walked into Kang Lodge (seemingly a related business up the hill), which was full. The hotel location is bang in the middle of town centre. The manager was exceptionally pleasant to deal with. We paid for a double room with ensuite. Room was basic and there were some bits that were in need of maintenance - but seemed clean. Bed was missing the top sheet. Towels could be had for a deposit of 20. For a room rate of 50, the standard felt about right. There are probably nicer places, but for a bit more.

Rooms were cheap but it's definitely not good value for money. Rooms are dirty, smell really bad and our beds were full of bed bugs. Fortunately, they gave us our money back the next day but did not bother to apologise even if we were full of bites...

Too many bad things.
The carpet in the room had water spots. The room felt all the time kind of wet and moist.
The worst thing was that during my absence someone went into my room and stole my tablet (left it there to charge it). Management told me that that never happened before and that it wasn't anyone from the staff. Could not see how the person got in the room but for sure the person had a key.
The management was still friendly and tried to help me.
