Not much to look at from the adjoining street, but these folks have been in the business since 1995 and know how to meet your needs.

Located a short walk from the central bus station, they have 50 rooms ranging from 10 ringgit dorms to private rooms with ensuite baths for as low as 55 ringgit (negotiable for longer stays). Although it looks lived in, the rooms and toilets are clean and spacious. There is no elevator and the stairway to this bargain can be a bit challenging. They have free WiFi, a small library and can readily assist you with travel information. Their location is conveniently close to banks, the central market, museums and the like.
