Our Hostel is located in Ipoh new town. Taking a stroll across the Kinta River, you could find the path of heritage walk, witnessing British colonial buildings and monuments with the well-known concubine lane full of interesting stories. The famous Guan Heong biscuit shop winning the top 50 best street food in the World Congress is just around the corner. At night definitely you won't miss the 'must-try' bean sprout chicken and other local delicacies. All are available within walking distance.

Ipoh is considered as hill city as surrounded by hills and limestone caves dividing to Old town and new town by the Kinta River...As I am an active member of Couchsurfing, I do have experience bringing my guest(s) around visiting the city, some tourist attractions like limestone caves, Kellie's Cattle, and savouring some of the local delicacies, like Old Town white coffee, soup noodle, satay, and many more.....
If you come across any interesting places nearby, we could arrange a trip together.
Also, Ipoh is a getaway to Cameron Highland and Pangkor Island, halfway between Kuala Lumpur and Penang, thus you could take Ipoh as the pit stop to further your trip going north or south
