Loved it so much we stayed longer”
Perfect budget hostel, basic but clean. really helpful staff (shout out to kenny) Shared bathroom was always clean and had toilet roll. Little area you can have tea and coffee or sit on the little terrace. Close to everything. Recommended.

Fair... good location, good staff ”
I must admit the location is perfect; easy to find local restaurants and the famous nashi kandar. Price is heap, anmd rooms are clean. But the staff is only available until 9.00 PM and they'll start working the next morning. Just mind about safety if a bad person comes in to the hotel... (although after 9.00 PM guest must enter with a pass electronic key and cctv's are available and Penang is a safe city; but in my opinion it's still dangerous as no staff nor security staff are available at night until morning)

Clean, comfortable and easy access to food and shops. ”
Love that it's a heritage site - old pre-war building. Hoping for a similar feel inside the rooms and building. Perhaps this can be something for the owners (lovely people by the way) to consider. Parking is not as difficult to find as initially thought.
