Surprisingly best accomodation for backpackers”

Good Environment, Friendly Staffs, Free Bicycle Riding

I was very surprised that the existing for such a good place for backpackers in Ipoh. Clean, comfortable accommodation with the international feel that every backpacker seeking for. Provided with free bicycle for you to go around old town.Near to Ipoh railway station and old town. Just one thing to mention is it's a bit hard to carry the bike up and down from the studio. However, I like BBBS very much and definitely will go back to there if i got a chance to travel to Ipoh again.

Great! ”

Clean, friendly, new

I've booked a couple of nights here and I've ended up to stay one week. Ipoh it's a nice place to explore and the hostel, even if it's not in the center, it's easy to reach with bus (n°117). The staff is amazing helpful and friendly, one of the best hostel in Asia!

Not recommended”

The location of this hostel is good, you can go anywhere in ipoh city centre on foot if you live here. But the facilities here is terrible, there was only one big room with 6 beds ( if I don't misremember it) and there are no differences if you book the cheapest one and the most expensive one. (because you can choose any bed you like) the staffs here are mostly backpackers and some of them are not so friendly. It's hard to get any useful information from them.
