Time Out says
Spend a few more ringgit on top of your backpacking budget and stay the night at Ryokan. Claimed as the country's first flashpacker hostel, the Japanese-themed place oozes polished chic and all-round comfort for a reasonable price. The place has rooms of four and six bunk beds. If you need a little privacy then opt for their Luxury Suite or the all-female room. Have another hour for cultural visit? The Goddess of Mercy Temple, Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion and other attractions are just minutes away.
