Ok, this place is not luxurious, but it’s as close as you’ll get for 40 – 50RM per night. There’s not that much to see in JB, but if you’re shocked by prices in Singapore and can handle a commute this would make a great alternative. Otherwise, if you’re travelling around Malaysia and want a break from the budget hotels with used sheets and towels, stay here. Rates vary from 40-50RM. Sheets are changed after EVERY check-in (it’s NOT standard practice to do this at budget inns in Malaysia).
I had my own bathroom and balcony (could have had bathroom and kitchen instead). Huge bed, tv, large room and very clean. Free wifi and broadband.
About 10minutes by bus from the centre of JB, but near a supermarket and good shopping area. Secure house. I’ll be staying here again before leaving from Singapore.
