    Amazing place, amazing location, amazing music”

    I was on a solo trip to Penang to unwind and I chose Kim Haus Loft at random, after seeing the photos. The location of the accomodation was convenient, and most tourist destinations were within walking distance. The decoration of the B&B was nice too, and it felt really chill just to be hanging around the B&B. Room was decent and alright for the price,although the water in the bathroom dried out a bit too slow. However, I would say that Kim Haus Loft really does its best to engage the local music community, and awesome live music are played at the hotel bar daily. I truly enjoyed my stay!

    Comfortable Hotel With Exceptional Service - Highly Recommended”

    Kim Haus Loft is a boutique hotel with a trendy, modern feel in the centre of Georgetown. The location is excellent for exploring the city on foot, and there are many eating places and bars nearby, as well as in the hotel itself. Accommodation-wise it is very good value for money. They cater for guests from budget back-packers dorms, to rooms and suites for people who want more privacy. There are comfortable lounges and open-air terraces on each floor, where you can sit and read or work on your laptop. The staff were exceptionally kind and provided service beyond what was expected. I was not completely happy with the room I had booked, and when I mentioned it to the receptionist I was immediately offered an alternative room. The new room suited me perfectly, and I was very happy to have had the option. On the whole the hotel is comfortable and inexpensive, and a fun place to be based, but the most impressive thing was the kind and thoughtful staff :)

    The bohemian traveller”

    If you want a high standard bohemian unpretentious place for staying, working and dining - Kim Haus Loft is the spot. Have tried several budget hotels in amazing Georgetown, and surely you can find something more colonial, which may be what this place misses a bit, but rather representing the newer and very artistic and interesting Georgetown. Nice semi-international food, a bit pricy, but the other stuff compensates for that. Good wifi facilities, free water for guest's.

    Great location”

    I would definitely recommend Kim Haus but would never recommend you to book through Agoda. Service from Kim Haus is super but from Agoda very bad. Book normally with Hostelworld and regret that this booking I did with Agoda. Had a phone call with Agoda, waited for 10 minutes before I got someone on the phone. During waiting the computer said waiting time less than 10 minutes. When I got the lady on the phone she said she tried to call Kim Haus, and that she has send them an email. Kim Haus said they didn't receive anything. The lady from Agoda said "We will call or email you tomorrow". Still nothing. I had call with Agoda as I wanted to cancel the last night. If it's not possible than say so, don't say thing which you can not make true. Next time will book again with Hostelworld. Their price is also cheaper. Thank you Agoda for this experience.

    Simple and strategically located”

    Kim Haus Loft is a recommended trendy-simple-strategically place to stay in George Town. I booked the standard room for one night and I found the room to be ok for a 1 or 2 nights stay. The room is pretty small but quite comfortable and they provided shower gels, soaps, towels, and a hairdryer. Guests can wash and dry their clothes with the provides washing machines and dryers. What I liked the most was the trendy interior design of the whole place. The common areas are really comfortable and pretty to see. The loft is located above Kim Haus cafe and bar so guests can chill downstairs. The location is really good too, walking distance to Armenian street etc. What I dislike about the place is it can be very noisy sometimes because the walls are not soundproof enough. I could hear vehicles passing by at night and sounds of other guests outside the room. And the 'lift' is pretty incovenient as well. Overall, I would recommend this place if you're not a fussy traveller :D

    Hipster Hotel in the Heart of Penang”

    We stayed 3 nights on a Bank Holiday Weekend. Kim Haus proved a great stay for visiting the historical attractions on Georgetown. The hotel was very cool, great atmosphere. The music was only till 12 and not unbearable so no problems getting to sleep. Breakfast was a treat, especially the home made loaf from the otherwise overpriced artisanal bakery. Be advised, there were no windows in our small room (from what we understood all of them are the same) which gets a bit claustrophobic. Overall, a great stay and we would come back for sure. Tip: go from Butterworth if you can, its much closer than the other coach stations

    Gonna come back to stay here again!”

    I’ve been staying in so many homestay/dorm before, this is the best so far. The room is very cute with the bed on top and the table, sink, mirror and wardrobe below. There’s a private bathroom as well, usually the price like this always provide shared bathroom only. So I was quite surprised when I saw the private bathroom. The only con for Kim Haus is the shower water cannot use the max volume if not the water cannot come out. So overall 4.5 stars 💫💫

    Its near to any coffee shop and restaurant so, its very convinient for u to walk araound the street. The room is cozy. Its maybe my luck, i booked for double bed with shared bathroom but since the room its not ready yet they gave me queen bed with private room which is very nice and cozy! Maybe its on fasting season and not in school holiday so there were plenty empty room! So again thank u Kim Haus! U should try their elevator bacause it is manually operated so u must use with supervise! Since its quite complicated i choose stairs to go up and down to my room! 😬😬 and about the stairs they should put more signage since the stairs not connected directly every floor. Anyway it was a pleasant stayed here! It is recommended for yall to stay here especially for the backpackers!

Not only were the laundry services affordable, but each guest received two drink coupons for the live bar that opens within the hostel itself every other night. The whole place was incredibly picturesque and had plenty of rest spots.

    Kim Haus was a very cute and charming spot located above a restaurant/bakery. Every night, there was live music on the second floor, but it ended at midnight so that everyone could go to sleep. I thought the hostel was very clean, staff was very friendly, and was located in a great spot of the city.

    Definitely value for money! Room is tiny but you can get everything in a room. We got free drinks and live performance in the bar, we really enjoy it! So many unique and beautiful things in Kim Haus, I would say it just like a museum! Good experience overall! The location is just nearby to famous food street and art street. One thing that we are not satisfy is services of staff. They took the wrong bill to us when we are having our free breakfast in the morning. This is embarrassed. Beside of this, overall is good! Still recommended!

    A good way to experience an otherwise pricey establishment ”

    I stayed in a single private room. It’s a cheap way to experience an otherwise expensive establishment but you are probably better off in a hostel. The single privates are on the same floor as the bar and live music set up so it’s pretty noisey. You also have to awkwardly go through the back end of the bar to get to the showers. The WiFi isn’t great. Single private rooms are more like dorms with dividers and a shared aircon. But if you can’t afford the lofts it’s a nice way to experience Kim Haus. There is nice health cafe and Vibey bar. The outdoor mini gym and free laundry are an added bonus. The staff are well trained and although probably understaffed are very attentive. Overall a nice stay.

    Cleanliness of the room can be improved”

    We stayed two nights in Kim Haus for our short visit to Penang last week. The place is easy to locate and parking is not a problem as parking space can be easily found along the street. The size and space of the room is okay. But the cleanliness of the room should be improved. Upon checking in, we found that there were used soap bar at the bathroom's rack. We also found that there were used wet tissues near the back of the toilet bowl, which is a huge turn off. We suspect that the pillow case and sheets are not changed because there is a strong perfume smell on them. Nevertheless, we didn't make a complaint but bear with it because we do not want our holiday to be affected anyhow. The breakfast and food at the cafe downstairs is very very good. I would recommend this place to my friends but i do hope that the cleanliness of the room can be improved.

BUT!!! or me personally, too noisy as there is a live entertainment area on the 2nd floor, and can clearly be heard in the room. But, to their credit, the music did stop at 12 pm.

The hotel is great! The location, the design, they have bagage lift, they don’t provide bottled water but they have water dispenser on the 4th floor, the guest can use the washing machine and dryer for free on the 4th & 5th floor.
