Picture in Agoda looks really good but you can find the REAL picture in google review guest house very old and dirty. I booked private room with shared bathroom. Dirty sheet bed,pillow and blanket with hair. Water comes out from A/C at night. Walls very thin you can hear the next door talking. Pay cheap, Get cheap. Not recommended

what a pleasant place to stay”

the location is right at the love lane. some people complain about the deposit money for the key, mine is no problem. it’s quite a lot, 50ringgit, but the owner agreed to have it in rupiah. you cant expect a lot since it is considered cheap but i found it okay, will be back here if i have to go to penang. the only disadvantage is they have curfew at 3am.

You get what you paid for”

I was staying in a single room with fan and shared bathroom. + Check-in was fast. There were a few shared toilets and bathrooms. There is microwave oven and refrigerator. I didn't use the microwave oven, but the refrigerator looks like it has reached the end of its life. There is a lounge area with plenty of sofas and chairs for you to hang out or socialize with the other guests. There is also water dispenser at the lounge area. - The place looked worn out and could have been cleaner (feels like this place is fully occupied daily). The room is quite crammed, with a bed, a small table and a narrow corridor for you to place your luggage. Don't expect the Wi-Fi to work at this place. Overall it's great to stay at this place for a night or two.

Great Staff and Excellent Location”

Staffs are very accommodating and the location is perfect. However, the photos of the rooms were quite far to what it looked like (a bit deceiving so to speak). Sheets and pillow cases are a bit over-used (faded). Wooded floor tends to squeak every time someone passes by. A/C in our room needs to remain on for a bit longer in order to reach the desired temp (maybe due to high ceiling). The entire hostel (as it's quite big) has lots to improve in terms of interior to make it look more presentable that can be worth the price.

Mold on the walls. Bed was not clean (sheet had stains). Internet was not working. I checked in, didn't get any smile from the lady behind the desk. She gives me the key and that was it, no introduction about the hostel (facilities, where my rooms was, what to do around town) nothing. the next day i figured out we had a water dispenser we could use and that we hadbreakfast, the lady didn't tell me. Luckily there we some nice people staying in the hostel but otherwise i whould have run away screaming from the hostel.

Nice stay, we initially booked 2 days but extended it for a further 2. The only thing I would say is if you are stopping on the 2nd floor the wifi is not the best and does cut out intermittently which is a bit frustrating as we rely on wifi for travelling for booking hotels etc. Staff were friendly and location of hotel is great for things to do in Georgetown.

Great location! Rooms are too noisy though.”

Walk outside and there’s plenty of bar life along the street. Definitely a place for you if you want to drink. However, the room itself was a little underwhelming, due to the leaky air conditioning and the walls thin as paper. You can hear everything that goes on outside if you stay on the ground floor. I have to give A+ for the staff because they were friendly and even offered me some of their home cooked meal for dinner.

Best Value for Money Hotel in Georgetown! Location of the hotel is strategic; within (10mins) walking distance to the major eating areas. Ample parking spaces and a dedicated parking spot (2mins walk away from hotel). Hotel cleanliness is marginally acceptable (as the hotel is converted from an old shop lot). Staff were exceptionally friendly! Facilities were on par with most hotels around. Basic necessities are provided. Will stay again in the future!
