This hostel added my wonderful experience during my stay in Penang. It was surprising that having a small exterior of the hostel has this wide and spacious interior. Value for money was on point especially for the friendly and accommodating staff, light but good breakfast, which is a big bonus. Location wise, it is situated in the heart of Georgetown so need to say more. It was so convenient.

Enjoyable and comfortable stay at Red Inn Heritage Guesthouse”

The room is very value for money. I booked a single room with shared bathroom. The bed is comfortable and the air-con works well. The location is very great and accessible to most of heritage spots in Penang. There are many bars and pubs around the place at night time . Highly recommended for single travelers! Will definitively stay here again for my next trip to Penang.

what a pleasant place to stay”

the location is right at the love lane. some people complain about the deposit money for the key, mine is no problem. it’s quite a lot, 50ringgit, but the owner agreed to have it in rupiah. you cant expect a lot since it is considered cheap but i found it okay, will be back here if i have to go to penang. the only disadvantage is they have curfew at 3am.

The room was just nice and clean, good value for money. The toilet and shower were always clean. The best part of staying here is the perfect location at the Love Lane. You can walk around to the famous places from the guesthouse, although you might get tired but it is worthy :) Teochew Cendol, Pasar Chowrasta, Roti Bakar Hutton Lane, Sup Hameed, Upside Down Museum, 3D Museum and many more amazing places near the guethouse. I would highly recommend this guesthouse if you are on a budget trip with friends :D

This hotel was great value for money. We had a nice clean room with a nice bed although it was so noisy if you moved around on it! The floor boards were also noisy. This hotel is in such a good location with good night life and great food. The breakfast was only toast but had different toppings so was okay. The staff were friendly. We were only staying here for 2 nights but stayed for 4 nights in the end. People have been saying it's noisy on there reviews but I honestly don't know where that come from. It was so quite and you couldn't hear anything from the night life street that was like a 3 minute walk. Great value for money and would definitely recommend
