Super friendly”
Amazingly friendly and chill hostel! Great value too, especially because it's one of the few places in town without added tourist tax (so no hidden costs after Agoda payment). Very central. Would definitely recommend this place!

Disappointing!”
We chose this BnB because the reviews by previous guests were great and the pictures on Agoda and Booking.com looked nice. We knew that we were not getting a 5-star accommodation but for $18 we were expecting a decent place to stay at. However, we were a bit disappointed when we arrived. The room was clean, alright, but it was quite small and we could hear all the noise from everyone walking on the floorboards outside, when someone is in the bathroom,down to the Indian guy in the next house talking on his phone til past midnight. The bathroom wasn't really clean and the shower was not working well too. The sink outside the bathroom was always clogged and leaking during our entire stay. Please try to make the bathroom and showerroom better. We booked for a double room with breakfast for 6 nights but when we arrived, the owner Mr. Balan said he doesn't offer any breakfast anymore and he had already told Agoda to remove it from the website info. We were too tired so we didn't argue anymore. He said we could have instant coffee or tea anytime we want but that's all. It's not that much money and having breakfast of coffee and roti on the street is only $1 or less but we booked this BnB because we thought we would be able to chill in the morning and have a simple breakfast before going about our busy day. So this factor was a big disappointment for us. Agoda and Mr.Balan should fix this because it still shows that they offer breakfast on the website and this means that either of you are lying to your guests. Also, during check-in, we got confused because Mr. Balan said they are going to move us to another place because his house is full already. He said it's a newer and better place but suddenly his wife said it doesn't have WiFi yet so we couldn't go there. So we ended up just staying the house and there was 1 room available after all. Are there two 28 Bahari branches? Mr.Balan and his whole family were very friendly alright, he even invited us for a dinner party

Good”
Host above excellent, really makes you feel at home and will go the extra mile to be of an assistance. Facilities are very very basic. Bedsheets a bit stained, fleecy throw on the bed. Shared toilets/shower outside. The stay was what was expected in the price we paid. The main downside was the noise, after travelling for 10 hours we struggled to get some must needed rest.

Exceptional”
There's nothing much to say, besides that this has been far out the most friendly people I ever met on travels. The owners, a wonderful couple with their 2 kids, are always there with a smile for you. All your questions will effortless be answered, and you'll get even much more travel tips than you could ask for. The rooms are nice, have airco and the shared bathrooms are very clean. The only little remark I could make, the front rooms, with balcony, can be a little bit noisy because of the proximity to the street. Besides that, don't let anything hold you back to book here for your stay in Penang

great value for money”
Was good value for money as stated. The owners were exceptionally helpful and very friendly! There is a bus called '101' very close that takes you around the island (for those looking for national park, this is the one) for a small price of 5.2 rm for the both of us. But you will also be informed from the lovely owner on what Georgetown has to offer in food and attractions. Only stayed 2 nights but could've stayed longer as there was a lot to see.

Schmuddelig, primitive Unterkunft”
Wie sind die guten Bewertungen zustande gekommen? Der Gastgeber gibt sich tatsächlich sehr freundlich und bemüht, aber eine Begrüßung mit Küsschen ist distanzlos. Die Unterkunft ist eine Zumutung. Das gebuchte Balkonzimmer war nicht verfügbar, weshalb ich ein anderes Zimmer zugewiesen bekam. Das Doppelbett passte da gerade rein, die Bettwäsche nicht vertrauenerweckend, die Handtücher stinkend, nicht benutzbar. Keine Nachttischlampe, die ganze Möblierung bestand aus einem kleinen Nachttisch, einem Spiegel und ein paar Wandhaken. Für alle Zimmer ( ca. 10) nur eine Toilette, das kleine einzige Waschbecken im Freien ohne Sichtschutz. In der Toilette eine Dusche, so dass man mit seinem Geschäft warten muss, bis der andere Gast fertig geduscht hat. Keine Fliesen im Bad, keine Wandhaken oder Ablagen für die Badutensilien oder Kleider. Ich hatte zwei Nächte gebucht, bin aber nach einer Nacht wieder abgereist. Die Unterkunft wäre richtig für Budget-Reisende, dürfte dann aber höchstens 10 Dollar pro Tag Kosten. Ich habe 27 Dollar pro Tag bezahlt. Für 26 Dollar habe in dann im Armenian Street Heritage Hotel ein piekfeines Zimmer mit schönem Bad, großem Schrank, Safe und blütenweißen Handtüchern gefunden.

店主超热情 So helpful.”
店主超热情的,那天晚上我们才到,店主就很热心的问我们。店主很贴心地给我一份地图,在我们出门前,给我们指出来,哪里吃东西好吃,哪里好玩。这儿应该算是民宿。位置很好,到哪里都很方便,周围超多公交车站的。We had two great stays in 28 Bahari. He just helped us a lot. Told us where we should visit, and recommended the local food which is so tasty. He and his family are so kind and warmhearted. His kids, a little boy and a little girl, are soooo adorable.

老板很热情,就是老是不在。”
不介意咖喱味道可以去,大厅有房间里没有,房间总体偏小,洗澡没热水。总得来说就是印度风格,中国人还是住华人老板那边比较方便。但印度人的热情真的不错
