Add a Point to the Map

Lots of things are happening at Omar's Backpackers Hostel. A walk up a flight of stairs reveals a homely setting, with divisions for the kitchen, the living room,  and several doors leading off into dormitories (RM15 per person) and one large double room (RM35 per night), all simply furnished with thin mattresses and ceiling fans. While the kitchen, bathroom and toilet are shared, they are in pretty decent condition.

Perhaps what makes this backpacker's hostel an attractive option for travellers is that on top of providing extremely affordable accommodation, Omar also organizes daytrips to other lesser known islands in the Pulau Tioman cluster, also known as Omar's Island Hopping Tour. Fees are RM70 per person and a minimum of 4 people are required to make the trip. He also organizes overland tours and trips to Endau Rompin National Park.

Omar's Backpacker's Hostel is situated at an extremely convenient location along Jalan Abu Bakar with an internet cafe twenty meters away (RM1.50/hr) and a small bakery on the ground floor of the building which sells cakes and coffee for breakfast. Barely five minutes away is the Mersing Jetty.
