    Cozy, far from town, not 24hours service :(
    I feel comfortable. When we woke up, we would see green trees from window. They served us free iron, free mugs, free plates to use. But our room is so far from the ground floor(floor 4). N it's far from the city. N for us, the cost was not cheap for thrift traveler

    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 :)
