            My Hostel Muntri was a great accommodation experience. The staff was extremely helpful and generous, I hadn't exchanged my money to ringett yet and they still let me check in and stay the night and pay the next day. It was a bit hard to find, but once I found it the location was great. I felt super safe and comfortable here and walking back at night while alone. The only thing I didn't like was that the bathrooms were not very well kept, but other than that I enjoyed my time here.

            Clean and good value for money”

            This hostel is a basic place with simple facilities. For the price offered, one cant expect too much hence I would say its appropriately priced. Pros : 1. Excellent location. Walking distance to many tourist spots at Georgetown. 2. Clean beds + pillows + sheets. 3. Air conds in room functioning well. 4. Good water cooler + heater Cons : 1. Washrooms, though looks recently upgraded, still appear dirty. Water heaters need to be changed i guess. For gods sake please change the lock / latch on the toilet doors coz its too difficult to lock. Its gona cost less than RM10 anyway haha 2. Staircase appears a little steep. Please put a warning sign after mopping the staircase. I personally saw a guest slip & fall on his back at the staircase. (Hope this guy is well) Overall its still an acceptable place. Might consider staying here again if i dont get a better one.

            I was looking for the cheapest stay but in really good location then I found this hostel. The price was really good, so cheap. The staff was helpful and funny. The room was neat, comfortable, but it was little bit smelly. I dont know where the smell came from, but that was okay since I just stay here to sleep and spent most of my time outside. The toilet was clean, no soap or shampoo provided but I got towel.

            The hostel not really have a common area for hanging around. The rooms are nice. The WiFi was working really badly. Some showers are not, some not, but the bathrooms are OK. The house does not have a sign from outside, it's upstairs the black door besides the laundry. They could install a sign - annoying asking several people to find it..

However, it is difficult to locate it especially in the night as there are no any signboard. it is located upstairs of a laundry shop. Staffs are friendly. However, the room & toilet is a bit dirty. Anyway, with this type of price, u can't expect for more.

            Rooms are spacious. Beds are comfortable. Staff are lovely. Very dirty though, in my room one cupboard smelled of urine so had not been wiped out. Another off its hinges. One shelf never cleaned since installed as it still had drilling dust on it. The bathrooms were disgusting. When we arrived we saw and told exrrement was in toilet to check maybe it was broken. Two days later extrement still there. So I just flushed it. It was gone. Very dirty sink and toilets all the time except the one time housekeeping cleans it. Shared bathrooms used by staff should be checked and cleaned often. This place had allot if potential to be a great stay if they sort out the cleanliness.

            The place is located in a very strategic place. You can walk and have a drink with your friends around that place as there are many cafe or bar nearby. But the worst thing is the toilet. During my time stayed there, the toilet was very poor and bad. Plus, when i was taking my shower in the morning, i can spot a condom in the toilet! This type of condition is very bad in term of hygiene. Should improve.

            The staffs are not friendly, not nice and not helpful. Wifi doesn’t work in the room. Plug sockets are only one side. It’s inconvenient. Everything is dirty. The bed cover had so many wrinkles. Not only that, there was a lot of someone’s scurf on the bed. Definitely the staffs never changed the bed cover. Also there was something stinks. In the room, toilet and bathroom. When I checked in the hostel, I paid the money and deposit 30MYR. The receptionist just gave me the key. Didn’t tell and explain me anything. Then when I checked out, I didn’t have receipt. It was my fault. But they said they don’t know if I paid the deposits, nobody knows. They doubted me. And they said they don’t have any copy of receipts. (Actually they have). So they cannot give me deposit money back. Moreover they said 30MYR is not so expensive. That’s alright. I was supposed to stay in Penang for 2 night. But I didn’t like the room so I left here only 1 night. In addition when I left this hostel, they made another money problem to me. So I don’t recommend here.

            The location was great but that is where the positives stop. I noticed, in the dorm, more than one occasion the bed sheets were not changed between guests, so people were sleeping in dirty sheets. The bathroom was not in good condition. The wifi didn't reach the rooms so there was no wifi in the rooms. There was also no communal area to use the wifi in so I ended up sitting in the stairwell.

            Stayed 1 night in October 2018

            Affordable for the price ”

            It’s a nice stay but the facilities are a bit lacking. It doesn’t provide air conditioner remote and it also doesn’t provide blankets and towels. Location is a bit hard to find but is near to attractions.
