                    Okay”

                    location is very recommended since very near to the Cenang beach. overall was okay. i stay for 3 days, im not expect much for the room except: the door lock is using rustic padlock i feel insecure have to hide all valuable item. the aircond was dirty, they removed the filter, aircond has no remote control. so i cant adjust the temperature. serious issue was there lots of small red ants in the room, on the bed. i suggest to put ant killing bait.

                    awesome place, right on the beach literally. i had the option of a 1st or 2nd floor room. def opt for the 2nd floor as the lower rooms are musty smelling. the bed was super comfy, wifi worked great in the room which was a highlight for me as i work online. great place for the price. no complaints here. maybe bring earplugs if you're a light sleeper because there's a club not too far away and you can here the bass thumping away. nothing too crazy though, didn't bother me none.

                    This Guesthouse was a little hard to find but we managed to find it after calling up the owner. He's a very good owner who really does care about his guests stay. SFR's location is quite central and is near lots of restaurants and only a 10min walking distance to the beach. You can hire scooter off him. Breakfast was included with our stay (continental, not really the best but will do). We stayed in room 4 at the very top. Very nice big room with A/C, fan, tv, minibar, hot shower, safe and wifi/internet in room. There's also computers, chess and pool table, restaurant accessible to guests. Overall we had a pleasant stay at SFR.

                    Need A LOT of improvement”

                    This hostel really needs to improve on a lot of things. Ambience: Corridor is creepy and gloomy. Poor lighting. Room was musty. Basic amenities: The thing that really annoyed me is the water supply. I've never stayed in a place where I have to complain about water disruption 6 to 7 times during a three days two nights stay. During one of our complaints, we were given a key to another room for us to shower. Aircond worked well. Water heater worked well - when there's water, obviously. Flush didn't work - we did it manually! Mattress creaked for every inch of movement - luckily we were dead tired both nights to be bothered by this :) Car Park: Not systematic. Can be overfilled. Lucky for us, we didn't face any problem. Overall: The only saving grace for this place is its prime location - it is fronting the Cenang Beach and along rows of shops and stall (there's an excellent grill-stall called Fishbone and a multi-language bookshop literally in front of this place), at an affordable price. That, and the reception is quite attentive (i.e. despite all the problems, they always found us a solution - like shower in another room) That said, there are hundreds of hostel along that beach, thus if you have time I'm sure you can find a better place at a similar price.

                    viewing on the internet it looks fine but not overly impressed when we got there. (no pool) all your paying for is the location. but all the hotels in the area have the same location. the bed is the absolute worst we have slept on. we are backpacking the world and have been more comfertable on the floor at an airport. the wire is just under the surface and you can feel it digging into your hole body all night. we booked for 2 people 2nights. only got one towel. had to get another at reception. after a day when i asked for 2 fresh ones she would only give me one. the tv has 1 channel. the tv shows whatever they are watching in reciption. so you have to watch whatever they watch. the pool is a 5min walk away. its another property they own. very inconvenient. not worth the money. we moved to another hotel down the road. it has a fridge, coffee, tv, iron and the room gets made up when we ask for it. and it costs less then cenang rest house.

                    Unfortunately my booking was not captured in their books during my check in- there was not enough room for us. We had to negotiate to get a family room for the 4 of us to bunk in instead of 2 rooms for 2 pax each originally. However, pls note the Family Room is a bit tight for 4 adults as it is a King bed and 1 single bed. More suitable for 2 adults and 2 kids or 3 adults. Sheets were stained. Overall- room was alright. Nice bathroom though. Only towel and soap provided. No extra pillows as inn was full during the peak weekend. Ants trailing on the floor, so got ridsect spray from the reception. View was great. Can hear the live band from Babylon nearby- so light sleepers, bring your ear plugs. Not a problem for me though. Plus to this place-Location in great!

                    Location!

                    Location is the big thing here. Right next to the beach, and pretty close to the beach bar (but not close enough to be too noisy). The front desk are really helpful and accommodating, if a little absent minded sometimes. But I thought that added to the charm... Laundry service was quick (same day if given in the morning), good and inexpensive. Rooms - well, you don't come here to stay in the room, do you? Sheets were clean, just not done on a boil wash. It's basically a place to sleep, and you'll find lots of sand from the beach. A little tricky to shave without a mirror in the bathroom - but hot water and serviceable.

                    On arrival at Cenang Rest Inn, I was told that there was no air-conditioning rooms available (even though I booked and payed for an air-conditioning room) Instead I was offered a fan room or to stay in another hotel also owned by same individual. However, this was not by the beach which is why I selected this hotel. After much negotiation and made to feel like I should ring Agoda and sort situation for myself, I bargained to stay two nights in fan room at no extra cost. The fan room was absoulutely disgusting. No towels, no toilet roll. When I asked management about toilet roll, he laughed and said he will go to shop tomorrow. My advice to other travellers is that although the location is good by the beach. It's just not worth the scam of booking a room and then being told it's not available. A dark and dreary room that hasn't been renovated in decades spoils the experience. Take my advice: STAY ELSEWHERE!

                    the cupboard n the mirror table are not in the good shape. and theres no chair also. but as long as all of them still can functioned well, then its not a big problem for me. it is better if u can provide more hangers. the hallway of the room is pretty much dirty. but for me, it is understandable since all the mess caused by the sand. the condition of the room is good enough. im satisfied. this is perfect for backpackers.

                    It took little effort to find this place. It stands right next to a rainbow wall; apparently another guesthouse under the same management. Checking-in was simple. Although we were unable to check-in to the room immediately, there were no papers to fill out. We were not give clean towels daily - rather had to ask for them at the very disorganized reception, only to be told there were no clean towels but that they would place them in our room as soon as they would send and collect them from a cleaner's. The room was stuffy, the air-conditioner was not in working order. There was a friendly man who informed us he was the caretaker of the place and would have someone come to fix it. He kept to word. The view from the balcony though, was breathtaking. It was the immediate beach that we looked out to, and our room was the unit located closest to the water. This was not the best hotel that we have stayed in, but for the location and price, it would not be a big issue to stay here again.

                    Room ad overview is not as much as we get. I was very surprised by the broken pipe, the room smelled, the filth looked dirty and most I could not accept, the room wall and bathroom walls were so dirty! When my husband graduated well to change rooms, various reasons .. Hard and everything. Even we should talk well to avoid any fight. But the employee does not endorse our discretion! Even telling us in Kelantan say we're a kid? I really understand what he said. I chose this rest house for the first time because based on the pictures provided the toilet was very clean and comparable to the price, undoubtedly the advantages Affordable price for the beach. But !! Indirect cleanliness is maintained .. We may be less agitated if we can change the room because the toilet is very unreasonable. Communication between top employers and workers is very bad! We made a call to the upper room to request a room change, and agreed upon by the above party. When meeting with his employees, his employees say the top party is not in exchange !? We resubmit the superior over and over again, and are not answered. I feel very foolish, not only by the employees but also with the Superior. In this regard I feel that it is not just a rude employee, the management is also involved. Due to the fact that we were very angry, we did not spend the night here and continue to return keys and rent at another hotel. Because there is no discretion we are forced to rent another forget about that night. I hope no more hit customers like we are facing. Maybe not ours here.

I have been told by one of the local people that this problem always happened at this guest house. i would suggest he management will provide basin for each room in case the water supply still have not fix. i would not suggest this guest house for family especially with baby.
