Friendly Ayumni House is tucked away down a walkway that leads behind Seahorse Divers.
There's no beachfront here, but the rooms are quite reasonable for the standard and the dorm is one of the better ones we saw. Accommodation comes in two main flavours: freestanding wooden bungalows with compact private bathrooms and fan or air-con, and an air-con dorm. The dorm, at 55 ringgit, is pretty great value for this area and it was very clean and well kept. The bungalows are also well kept but are not such great value when compared to Mama's up on the next beach. Owner Ms Lee is very helpful and friendly and there is a handy convenience store on-site. Expect some noise night and day thanks to the nearby dive shop and resorts. Free WiFi is also available. Overall, this isn't a bad hideaway for those not fussed about being off the beach – and the beach nearby is pretty good.
