Great Location, helpful staff and decent enough facilities considering the price. Would definitely recommend to those travelling on a budget, only downside was that the bed we had wasn’t massively comfortable.

Sociable and helpful but don't transfer on website
After a difficult start (pre-arranged airport transfer not turning up, wouldn't recommend booking through sultan website for that) they won me over with their helpfulness. Ive stayed in better kept places than this but it's perfectly do-able. Highly recommend for solo travelers, as really sociable place - both the staff and fellow guests. The airport shuttle for the return (set times) was much more reliable when arranged at their reception.
