I've been to a lot of hostels, but never have I seen a hostel as bad as this one. The staff is very unfriendly and borderline rude, when we arrived the guy that had to show my room had zero patience, when I couldn't find my bed he was actually swearing at me. He pointed me to a bed that... More

My fiancé and I booked this place in advanced because there weren't any other Inn's or Hotels available on this Island as it was the weekend plus Malaysia's National Day so everything was fully booked. When we checked in (as we stayed for 3 nights do to fully booked Island) and were given the key to the room by the... More

When we arrived, the managers gave us a room who was smelling humidity, we left the fan on the whole and left to the beach when we came back, the smell was still there... More

Ok...islands are paradise you will hear; well, paradise is so full in August that you have to consider another month to visit them, definately. For a charge of 60 euros per nigh, you will get a twin room with just a fan and private shower/wc. The A/C room is around 100 €. No cleaning, no changing towells, no laundry, no... More

I am a solo traveller and wanted to stay in a dorm on Perhentian Kecil. There are no hostels on the island listed on either Tripadvisor or Hostelworld, and I was therefore forced to rely on someone's recommendation (this place). You can't book anywhere on the island online, so you have to look around to find somewhere when you get... More

First of all this place was overpriced for the amount they charged us which was RM800 per person, it was totally a rip off. Secondly, the manager, Mr. Michael should never be in hotel management, he was unfriendly, rude and not helpful at all. It really felt like they just want to take our money and forget that we even...
