Not worth it”
Not worth. Very noisy. No paip in toilet. Water pressure very slow. Blanket very thin. Feel so cold. Feel so uncomfortable! Regret of taking it by look at review. Requested double bed but receive 2 single bed. It's worth of staying if want go for water activity only.

It's a simple guesthouse but always clean, the owner and family were so nice and welcoming. The room was big enough, a little bit hot even with the fan on, so maybe is better to book one wit a/c. We even stayed longer than we planned because the location is great, in front of a beach where one can see amazing sunsets, close to the National Park. Also lots of places nearby to eat great and cheap local food (and for those less adventurous there are also internacional franchises of fast food)

Poor Service”
I booked this place after reading positive comments.. To my surprise my family and I had a very bad experience here. When we arrived, I was asked to pay an additional RM10 because I had a 9yr old son which I didn’t declare earlier. I told the Chinese lady that I don’t need any extra bed and we can share just for that night. She refused, and told us that she’ll give us a family room. When we went to the so called family room,there were 2 single beds only, not a family room!! The aircond wasn’t functioning well. It was warm. The pail of water she put outside to wash our feet from the beach was filled with nymph(wonder when was the last time she changed the water). For a RM100 that we paid, the room has no tv, no kettle, no towel, no mineral water and a very greedy lady who keep asking me to pay extra. Really regret coming here.

Sufficient accomodation, lovely staff”
The staff/owners are highest quality of this guesthouse. They're warm, friendly, and helpful; available but in no way intrusive. The gueathouse itself is very basic but sufficient to the needs of most budget travellers. While the place might look due for an update/refurb, its clean and tidy. Location is good - directly across the road from the beach, with a couple of cafes/kitchens just outside the gate. 5mins walk to the nearest bus stop, 10 - 15mins walk to the main shops and food vendors. A short bus ride to/from Penang National Park, easy bus ride to/from Georgetown. I chose Baba based on positive reviews. The price is similar to others in its class around the area but with much more positive reviews. Would return to Baba again.

On the beach ”
Simple, clean, and comfortable. Right on the beach and short walk to night market. Some cheap food nearby by but more fancier/overpriced restaurants in the area. Staff was really nice, would definitely stay again.

Great location”
Location, location, location
Actually, I'd only taken the room for the day so that I could head to the beach and have a place to shower and rest after. Arriving at 2+pm, the room that I took with only a fan was really, really hot. I had invented to take a quick nap but being so hot, I couldn't. Overall, the place is really nothing much, you can easily get better conditions for the same price elsewhere but I suppose you're paying for the location - it's like 1 minute from the beach! It's also very close to food places, the bus stop to town, the night market, etc. and it's clean and the owner/staff age pleasant.

For me, single and just wanting to spend some time by the sea, it was excellent. It is not for everybody. This is a home with a family and you live right with them as they live their everyday lives. You live in a typical Malaysian middle class environment, no privacy nor luxury like a hotel. The room was clean, again, not hotel kinda laundered sheets, but clean cheap sheets typically used in most Malaysian homes. The floor boards are loud and you can hear snoring in the hallway.There is a common area upstairs with a sea view and you can just wear your bikini and walk to the beach. The hosts are helpful and very pleasant. For my purpose, it was a good deal and value for the money.
