This is the first hostel in Taiping and situated in the very heart of the town, in a typical and classic 1930ís shophouse. It is adjacent to the major sights, tourist office/clock tower, banks, money changer, post office, night food market, and other eating places are nearby. The train station is 1.2km (a 16-minute walk) and the bus station is 850m (a 10-minute walk) away.

We offer two 4-bed pod rooms. Each pod is equipped with private locker, fan, reading light and double power points. A towel and blanket are provided. The pod room is air-conditioned from 8pm to 8am. We also have two double rooms without windows. The rooms have ceiling fans and air-conditioners. In addition, there are two more twin rooms in our hostel. Both have fans and air-conditioners. Bathrooms are shared.

Taiping is a very lovely historic town and has got many attractions e.g. the Lake Gardens, Maxwell Hill, Zoo/Night Safari, Burmese Pool, Mangrove Forest, Charcoal Factory etc. However, we do not get a lot of international tourists. Many tourists only visit Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Melaka, Langkawi, Cameron Highlands and the east coast. Taiping is off the beaten track and a hidden gem in Malaysia. We really think that Taiping deserves more international tourists.

We have got a good product but have no idea how to promote it. Therefore, we wish to get some help on marketing. If you think you can help out, drop us a message! Besides, we also need helpers to assist us in general cleaning e.g. making beds, doing laundry, cleaning bathrooms etc and also dealing with guests =)
