Nice situated,bad facilities ”
Good things: Really good situated,2min to day and night market,really close to little India and Chinatown. Free cold water to refill your own bottle. Price. Bad things:No WiFi in the room,and really slow in the main room.
Excellent Location, Friendly Staff”
Staff are friendly. Easily access to all great locations
Location was the biggest plus point. Besides the front desk is good as far as treating customer is concerned. Lots of stuff to eat and buy just few steps away. Some important tourist spots are also a walking distance away.
Worth it with your penny spent!”
We're are travelling in group of 7. 2 rooms which is female dorm and mixed form. Really satisfied ! The dorm is comfortable - there's a/c and fan as well. Other than that, hair dryer, 3-in-1 drinks, iron (request at receptionist) also provided. I am really really happy to stay at Kimberley House. Also, the location is near with mall, bus station, main attraction and else. You can just walk ! Thank You , really recommended !
so so only”
furniture, bed, pillows bed sheet looked dirty and everything is old and broken. WI-FI, he will told you wifi is not so good "in this two days", but actually their wifi realy SUCK, can refer others review, since many many months ago samething still happening. no repeat for sure
Friendly staff, bad WiFi, just an OK place”
The staff is very friendly, and play nice music in the lobby/common area. The hostel has several common areas with comfortable sofas. What is really nice is the free coffee/tea/water service and that the towel is included. The WiFi is, however, very slow or not working at all. The female dormroom (no window) is quiet and spacious, the mattress a little too thin and the bed made noises when I turned around. Unfortunately there was no ensuite bathroom which is quite common in female dorms. The shower heads are really great, hot water is available and they provide shower gel (but no handsoap). The shower rooms are small though and it would be nice if they would provide some water tight cabinet in the shower room to put your clothes in. When I was there the other guests kept to themselves; there was little or no interaction which I didn't like. Also, it would have been nice to have a all barefoot hostel. In all, its definitely a hostel you can consider staying at, but it didn't stand out.
Overall is nice. However, i feel that the toilet's facilities should be more complete such as the hooker to hang the clothes inside the bathroom should be provided. It will be easier for the guest so their clothes or stuff can hang while bathing.
Great location, good atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff. Facilities were also satisfactory, there was towel, toilet paper and hand wash provided which was already more than what I expected so thumbs up.
Just ok for 1 night stay”
I was here because had a company dinner nearby. But the front desk closes at 12am so had to rush for check-in as my dinner finished at 1130pm++. Only 1 toilet with the toilet bowl is working. Another one, the door lock was damaged. The bed sheet was dusty. But I loved the deco downstairs . Very nice
A very nice place to stay ”
The location is great and it’s value for money. There are two different receptionists that work there and they are total opposites, one is grumpy and maybe shouldn’t work in hospitality, the other cannot do enough for you. Overall a good experience and I would stay again
Good value for money”
It’s really affordable and located at a prime location, where it’s just near to Komtar bus station (where we could easily take rapid bus to anywhere). Yet, it’s not really suitable for those who looks for clean place to stay, as it’s not really hygiene as compared to others and the facilities is not as good as others too.
Value For Money”
If you have tight budget then only you can stay here. Location is very good, I walked and visited nearby places and find the location to be strategic. Bathroom was clean enough and the staff were friendly and helpful. This place is not family friendly, only suitable for budget travelers. I had to extend my stay for 3 more days and did not have much budget for another three nights, so I chose Kimberly House as it was the cheapest in agoda for hostel dorm. I find it good and worth the money. This is not safe place so make sure that you always carry your valuable belonging when you go out. Do not leave your money or anything valuable in locker . Recommended for Budget Travelers and Backpackers
Great guess house”
Great guess house with great coffee and tea and lobby. It is located right in Kimberly road which is very dynamic at night. 😂😂😂. It is also near the CAT bus stop so you can get on this bus to go around the central of George Town.
Bad experience ”
Besides a comfty bed and a spacious bedroom, we saw a mouse on the room, the corridor smelt fuel all day. The share bathroom was quiet dirty. The employee speak very loudly and you can hear them even if you are at the first floor.
Location good but hotel no clean ”
Location was in china town area near market Room smelly Air conditioners no working have water drop out Bed is old and room was smell uncomfortable Toilets and shower room uncomfortable and no clean Leaving room have air uncomfortable
Cool hostel in an old colonial building”
The only thing I was dissapointed with was the slow internet. No free breakfast but they provide free cold drinking water and coffee/tea 24h. Clean, good location almost in the center of Georgetown.
You will get what you pay”
It’s exactly a hostel with shared bathroom. 2in1 (shampoo & bath) is provided. Room wifi is quite weak and the cleanliness for the bed is really worst!!! I can see the spider net. As I rent it just for bath & sleeping purpose. So I can said it’s worth wht you pay for.
Terrible cleanliness ”
Agoda needs to specify whether the room provides private bathroom or not . Normally when stated shower under the description means private bathroom where shared bathroom also written properly . This time is really a big disappointment stay because private bathroom means a lot to us . Next is the hairdryer , function is not available after 30 seconds , it's so annoying . The bed is not clean as we feel itchy on our skin after sleep . Anyway , the staffs are really good !! The location is good as well , walking distance to most destinations including the famous Chew Jetty & Armenian Street for murals , provided you don't mind walking under hot sun for maximum 20mins . If you don't mind of shared bathroom & ok with any cleanliness (not really terrible but we have sensitive skin condition) , the stay is good enough for the price .
Beautiful Old House”
What a nice experience to stay in an old house at the heart of a UNESCO Heritage town - Georgetown, Penang. 😍 On top of it, the staff are really nice and hospitable; they make you feel at home.
Loved it great little place”
Loved it here! Close to street art/food/shopping/bus depot. All you need if you are staying in Penang for a few days on a budget. Man at the desk was lovely and the building was great too... authentic shall we say :D Wifi not terrible but not excellent. So much tasty food!!!
