Marquee Guest Houzz
Operating since December 2013, Marquee Guest Houzz has been busy due to its prime location. It is located right opposite Central Market and within few minutes walk to Masjib James, Dataran Merdeka and Pasar Seni LRT station. Most of the rooms are dormitory type in which 4 beded rooms are the most common one.
Each bed costs less than RM30 per night. With the convenience and affordability offered, in just a few months, this hostel has already become quite popular.
The reception is located at the second floor.
On one side of the aisle, you can find computer table, magazine shelf and a sofa. On the other side is where the rooms are. The layout design adopts the backpackers style.
The shared bathroom is located at the back of this floor.
Here, you can find rooms on both sides of the aisle.
There is a relax area at the back where you can get filtered water and hang out with other guests.
Most 4 bedded rooms are small in size. But the location and price that you get make up for it.
Two queen beds are available in the family room.
Due to the budget price, it is understandable that insulation does not take into consideration in designing guest house. However, it is a mistake to ignore it entirely. The reception floor, in particularly, has a design that creates a noisy environment.
First of all, the reading area has a sofa and computer table that is positioned so close to the room. What separates this area with the room is a wooden partition. Since the guests like this area, for those who stay beside, you’ll certainly hear chatting voice outside.
Secondly, the wooden floor in the aisle and the room is combined. That means whoever walk outside, you’ll hear the foot step noise inside your room. The intensity is somewhat unendurable if an inconsiderate guest walks and produces noise like the following:
The noise above was recorded early in the morning at 4:30am.
Warning: A lot of the guests are night owls so if you are not the type of person who gets to sleep easily and soundly, avoid this guest house totally.
The most convenient way to reach this guest house is by LRT train. It is just 3 mins walk from the Pasar Seni station.
