General Summary

Business Overview We started the hostel project in year 2018 when we realised that there weren't any type of accommodations that appeals to GenY & GenZ available in the emerging market of Alor Setar City.

So we tapped into this sweet-spot. The old shop was once a glorious goldsmith way back in the 1920s. Since then, this large shoplot located in the heart of Alor Setar's heritage district has been transformed into a hostel/guesthouse for FIT & young business travellers from local and also around the world.
