Eric J. Families with young children United States of America, July 29, 2015
Very Decent Hoste

The price was good, the place is clean, lots of affordable food nearby.
It was fine. It's a hostel, so I don't expect much. What I did expect was all in order. Clean, quiet, affordable. Right on the bus line to the city. Take the 201 or 203 bus directly to Komtar.

Comfortable stay with friendly owner

1. Clean and Tidy 2. Quiet although the walls are thin. 3. Air flow of air-conditioner not directed to the head of bed.
We felt easy and free. Although the walls were thin, even thare were 7 rooms altogether, we were not disturbed by conversations and noise. We stayed in deluxe room. Room layout was good because only washroom is housed and toilet(common) was located outside the room. Check-in and check-out were simple and fast. Water ran out from the tap in the room was not clean enough but drinking water is available in the kitchen. We consider one table for a room was not enough. Location of the hostel is not so good. We had to take a bus to Kek Lok Si Temple. However, many eating stalls gathered around Fastbook. For us, vegetarian restaurants were not nearby but two of them could be found around a market few bus stations away.

Budget Hotel

Friendly Owner, Wi-Fi, TV Chanels
Location is near to Kek Lok Si and Penang Hill but abit far from town and beach area. Owner is very friendly as he will personally contact you before check in, he will try assist you whatever he can. Room is okay, but I don't like the attached shower in the bathtub for personal hygiene issues. Hostel is located at 3rd floor of shop lots, you need to up there by staircase so it's not suitable for senior citizen. We having good time in the mamak which is downstair of the hostel. Nice Shisha :)

The room was clean and new

Clean and neat room, good wifi connection, friendly and helpful receptionist
Overall it was good. The location was very near to Kek Lok Si and it was very convenient with a mini mart located just down stairs. The bad part was the noise created by the Mamak stall in the mid night was extremely huge whenever a live football match was shown
