Dorm is right above one of the popular cafes in town, so it's easy to get your fix of caffeine. The entrance of the hostel, is at the back of the cafe, and it's a very quaint and beautifully done walkway. This leads to Market Lane, one of the instagrammable alleys in Ipoh. Amenities in the dorm is complete, with locker, hot shower, and hairdryer. It's also right beside a hidden bar, so check that out!
Check-in was smooth, although if you're late, do let them know in advance as the staff will close the cafe/counter. As the street is beside the road, car noise is pretty loud at night, but the dorms do provide free ear plugs for that. The bed is spacious, but can get stuffy without a ventilation hole.
