Very good”
Would recommend this place for people who need to take an early morning flight without paying for taxi. Was confused about location - partly my fault for not checking carefully or studying the location beforehand as I was left alone after my partner (whom I depended a lot on) flew off. Thought I could ask the locals when I arrived at the bus terminal. Unfortunately, a few of the locals kept giving me wrong directions, making me move in the wrong direction. Alas, I managed to get help to call host and he was really helpful and responsive to my lost state, He came to fetch me to the place at a late hour. Then I realised how close I was really to the bus stop if I need to take a bus to Penang International Airport. Really convenient for people who need to take an early morning flight without paying for taxi.

Excellent stay”
I think the hostel is really modern and it doesn't look run down at all. The bathrooms are super clean (love the shower)! The air conditioner was cold enough to sleep in. The only con is that I dislike their wool blanket, it made my hair messy due to static electricity. Oh and the lights in the room is quite dim but fret not, there's a lightbulb on the upper side of your bed. Overall, it was a wonderful stay. I would definitely come back here again. Cheers!

Runners hostel”
I came here to this hostel for 2nd time. For those who used public transport, there is bus stop at the side of road. Every 30 min, there will be a bus heading towards Georgetown. There is also atm machine and 24/7 store nearby shop lot area. For those who staying here for running event at Queensbay Mall, it took 30 minute walking to reach there.

Amazed to their cleanliness and helpfulness of staff. Please note that you're on your own when in the house since there is no receptionist. Besides, dorm is a place where you share places with stranger,so you might encounter smelly customers. I hit the jackpot.
