Midway down the steep-ish river road, just past Teresek View Hotel, what was previously named Rippa, the new Rayyan Hostel has upgraded a bit with new bunk beds plus a bright turquoise and lavender colour scheme.

Photo of Rayyan Hostel
Their four dorm type rooms are spacious and clean with a large shared pebble-washed, modern bathroom and shower at the end of the hallway. The rooms come in four or six bed options and are equipped with air-con or fans and a large window, which keeps the rooms decently lit during the day. Toilet and shower use is also available for non-guests for a couple of ringgit. Although they do have a kitchen on site, the café was not open when we came by, but they did have a few snacks for sale. It’s just a short roll down the hill to the abundance of floating riverhouse eateries.
