enough for two night here”
Nice location on the Labuh Campbell, when I arrive this hostel they charge for tourism tax 10 MYR for 1 night. Then we have a very small room and guess what, there is a bed bugs on my pillow then I complain to the staff and then we move to the next spacious room with cooling fan but don't have air conditioner. My room is next to the bar with a live music on the second floor but its okay. And there is an arcade game on the first floor thats nice. I think maybe I would choose another place in penang for my next visit.
Good Location & Green Environment”
This hotel is renovated from Old Building, it is good for environment, the old building transform into hotel. Vintage feel and stay in historical road. The aircon is centralised share with a few small room. Could be hot in single room and next door sound can be hear.
Kimhause is an old goldsmith shop turned guesthouse. great vibes. It is like walking into a museum. There was live entertainment during the period that we stayed, but it was not so good...(unlike the other reviews, guess we got unlucky). It was a good thing we were on the highest level, away from the music room. The guesthouse was undergoing renovation and we stayed in one of the newer rooms (deluxe). Was a lovely stay. All facilities worked well.
The pits. The worst. ”
Looks great in the photos but it is actually a hostel. I checked in to find my room was ready but hadn't been touched by housekeeping, there were sheets on the floor and unmade beds and general debris from the prior occupant. The shared toilet was blocked and overflowing with raw sewerage. I asked if I could be moved to a different room only to be put on the phone to a manager who told me if I wanted a better room I'd have to pay more. Probably the worst choice in penang.
what did you see in google is totally different with the fact you get. when i ask to upgrade it and they told us all rooms are sold out. but the fact i check in agoda and there still have room. requested with twin bed but what we get? the bed with ladder. and there’s open air cond from outside. and the waterways above us!! its a nightmareeee to book here! never be back to here!!
Service of staffs Need to be Improved”
During check-in, I was not informed that there is a password-locked door lead to the hotel rooms, and no one shows me the way to the room, I need to ask the staff when I back from outside (when I went out, the password-locked door is open). During check-out, when I handed over my room key to the staff, told him I'm checking out, and he just takes my key and continues his works on hand without saying a word whether I can leave or need to wait. After a few minutes later, I asked him can I go now, he then says Yes.
This cute hotel is lovely and has cozy cute rooms - stunning ones - highly recommend
Perfect low-cost room”
1. First impression is Upps 2. Two hours later it's OK, it's comfortable 3. I can understand cost 4. The roof is open, the air conditioning is working 5. I hear the next conversation well 6. Everyone was quiet. 7. Smart Room
What they don't show on Agoda”
The rooms on the second floor don't look like the pictures on Agoda. Try to avoid these rooms. One of the rooms on the second floor is right next to the live music stage. The others are still very close and look more like a dormatory than a private room. There is a corridor and a few rooms, separated by thin walls. Since the air conditioning is shared, the rooms are not fully closed against the corridor. There is a huge cap between the door and the ceiling. The room we stayed in, was more like a basement. Cold stoned walls, a water pipe through the room, no windows and a very high humidity. The bunk bed is very shaky und uncomfortable. Even though I was able to select on Agoda, that I want a large bed, I had to learn, that this price category only has bunk beds. So you can choose even though there is no choice. Due to the already mentioned water pipe you can hear every single water drop if someone from upstairs takes a shower. The toilet you not only share with the other hotel guets, but also with the guets from the restaurant and the guets from the bar.

Hotel has no lift so not suitable for those with big luggage. Upon check-in, staff did not provide information on breakfast thus there was some confusion with the hotel staff over breakfast the next morning. It's not my 1st time staying here but this time round, the breakfast was far from satisfactory. We used to enjoy a continental set but this time round was just a piece of croissant and a cup of coffee. We got the room on level 5 and upon entering the room, a cockroach greeted us. With many other options nearby, I will skip this in future
Whatever you do, don't get a room with a shared bathroom - it's absolutely filthy and shared with the bar each night. The evening music is pretty bad, and you will hear it from your bedroom, along with any neighboring guests activity. I eventually changed to a new room with a private bathroom, but it honestly isn't worth the price. I advise you to look elsewhere.
I stayed for two nights, the location along campbell street is super accessible around Georgetown. Alot of restaurants, eateries and pubs around. Only thing is the gym equipment provided is relatively old. And the washers and dryers provided stain one of my t shirts. So better not to wash. Think the guesthouse owner should change to new washers as its massively use for their bedsheets washing which they should just reserved for only for guests' use. I didnt have a chance to visit their bar or live band or their restaurant. The atmosphere looks cozy to me tot. Maybe more suitable for family or couples who are lazy to walk. Regards, Chia
Book Studio suit and base on the pictures online, its suppose to be a reasonable size room. But after check in found out the room is so small. Only bathroom is big. Check with the counter and they can only offer me with RM60 as compensation. Really disappointed as I was expecting a pleasant stay.
Good place, not so good staff”
it took me more time to do the check in, although my room has been upgraded due to my room was fully booked. Thanks for that though. But the communication is somewhat distorted due to the staff character that was cold.
Nice but odd room layout ”
The hostel is super cool with a gold museum and the cafe serves amazing cakes and pastries. It has live music in the bar area but the “private room” is just a boxed in bed within a larger room. It’s quite prison like with no ceiling and not much floor space. The bathrooms were modern and clean.
Nice location and bar”
At the middle of Georgetown and walk around the town. Easy to find nice food. You can get a free cocktail voucher to use at the bar. The female singer of bar live sing very good. Room comfortable although not so big.
Fantastic budget option”
Room was basic but clean and comfortable, excellent value for money. The common spaces and cafe downstairs are very charming and staff were helpful in advising me where to rent bicycles and in storing my luggage after check-out. Yes some noise from the band during the evening but not unbearable.
Amazing boutique feel and cheap, small but clean room. AMAZING staff and common areas!”
Love this place and would definitely stay there again and highly recommended. The single private rooms with shared bathroom are simple, one bed with a small shelf and shared clean bathrooms. Great value for your money!! This place shines because of the AMAZING common areas. well over 100 seating area in different places. Great restaurant and bar on the main floor, great cafe with amazing baked goods. Second floor has a large bar area with live bands on most evenings, patio and evening sofa lounging area. Third floor has quiet reading sofa areas (3 of them) which are great for making phone calls or jusr relaxing away from the crowds. Single Room w/ shared bath : Great value for the money, worth it as a solo traveler. Deluxe / Twin / Queen rooms are much more private but double the price. Great if you are traveling as a couple or with a friend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
“Second time staying here””
First of all thank you for the upgrade. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean room in the middle of the center of Georgetown. The free laundry is also a bonus. Nice bar with live music and good cocktails. Would stay here again.
Amazing place, great atmosphere, great attentive staff, clean rooms! ”
This “Hostel” is more of a boutique hotel that happens to have a few cheap rooms with shared washroom. Only 9 rooms have shared washroom and another 50 or so are private rooms. I booked a single private w/ shared washroom and it’s great for the price. It’s a cross between a dorm and a private room because the wall above the door is open at the ceiling for the AC air to flow in... so you can hear your neighbours cough, snore and talk. PRO: so many! Clean, great bar area, common areas, restaurant, café, live music, washrooms are clean and well maintained and the staff is amazing! CONS: wifi is mixed, not good in my room but great at the bar and café. As mentioned the private rooms w/ shared bathrooms aren’t as private but for the price it’s really hard to beat and it makes up with so many pros.
