    Will always go back here if I'm in penang”

    clean and comfortable, owner is very friendly, quite close to everything

    I loved the homey feel, and Dani, the owner, was a gem, he took me all around on a motorbike and showed me great places to go! Very helpful and friendly :) There was a lady that worked there though who left A LOT to be desired, she acted like nothing was her problem (eg. we couldnt find the remote for the aircon, wifi cut out for a bit etc.) and had a bit of an attitude, she was unhelpful about where to go, and genuinely not fit to be a receptionist. The rooms were clean, beds and pillows very comfy, no bed bugs yay! Wifi was fast (though it did cut out because there was a huge storm) Good food close by, bus station is walking distance, so is the jetty and everything :) Had a great stay :) Not recommended for families, since its a dorm environment, but great for solo travellers or even groups and couples.

    management needs an attitude readjustment”

    on a quiet street

    For a place with the word "friendly" in its name, the management make awfully little effort. Nice enough traveler vibe. staff, like the live-in 16 year old live-in cleaner/reception guy (labor laws anyone?) friendly but clueless. Theres some choice Russian expletives describing the manager on their graffiti wall, can't say I disagree. Cleaning done occasionally, but ok by Asian standards. Positives- it's cheap, there's a semi equipped kitchen, it's on a quiet street with friendly neighbours. feels like a self managed share house rather than a hostel though, so if you plan on staying longer than a day or two, be prepared for some rude surprises. Nicer place round the corner for same price.

    It was overall good, the staff (which is not the really the host) very helpful, the dorm is cheap. The bed is rather fragile, we got the upper bunk and when we were moving ourselves while we were on the bed, it causes so much movement to the bunk that we really concern it will disturb person who stays below us

    a young staff ( not the host) was quite friendly & polite. free use of bicycle if stay long.

    it is really "friendly" - air-con only allowed from 6pm to 11am next day, was impossible to stay in the afternoon as it was verrrrrrry hot!! suggested air-con operating at 2-5pm and 8pm-10am (same 17 hours but host didn't agree). at least 1 month no proper cleaning job was done. dust accumulated underneath of every bed. location no good. long walk to main road (penang road) under hot sun. there are plenty of better choice around.

    Warme Dusche, Klimaanlage, Frühstück inbegriffen

    Ich habe den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Die Leute im mixed bed dorm waren cool drauf und somit war die Zeit sehr unterhaltsam. Das ganze beschränkt sich auf ein Zimmer im ersten Stock mit einigen Doppelstockbetten, was die Atmosphäre eher familiär macht. Zwei Klimaanlagen, drei Toiletten(davon 2 Duschen) und einige Ventilatoren sorgen für den Rundumkomfort. Wasser zum Wiederauffüllen for free und ein Kühlschrank zur Mitbenutzung, sowie eine Küche für den Eigenbedarf sind da. Auch kann man für 5Ringgit eine Waschmaschine nutzen, im ersten Stock. Alles in Allem ist das ein super Hostel und es ist für mich erstaunlich, dass der Betreiber die Kosten bei so günstigen Preisen tragen kann. Respekt!
