If you satisfy with the room condition, just click book room. The room booked will be shown in the app.

OYO room amenities include bath kit, mattress and shower head. The hotel joining the chain also comes with aesthetic upgrade such as decal & lamp or dollops & boards.

If you have unforeseen circumstances, you could cancel anytime. Free cancellation with 100% refund for 24 hours or more prior to check in time (for bookings up to 3 rooms)

There are other useful features in the app. This includes "Chat with us". Talk with the team if you have any problem which could not be settled.

Nevertheless, you could refer to the FAQ for your problem first :)

 I test the "Chat with us" function to see if really works...LOL
As you can see, I get reply within 2 minutes of time which is pretty fast.


OYO is something great to share with friends! Above all, OYO rewards you for successfully inviting your friends to join! Your friend will get RM50 upon sign up which is equivalent to a free room stay as you can see some rooms only cost less than RM50! Well, you get RM10 upon their sign up and RM40 after their first stay! Both you and your friends get mutual benefit through the system and fair enough to all :) That's my sharing on OYO, I hope you guys will include my referral code EMILGQXSE upon sign up yeah :)
