    Review”

    Really cool and comfortable hostel. There is a nice cafe below, which is ideal for meeting people. The larger dorm has quite a lot of people, so if you’re a light sleeper, j recommend bringing ear plugs or going for one of the other dorm options with fewer people. Free drinking water is a huge plus, since it means less plastic! Would recommend!

    Better than expected”

    The hostel location is good, many restaurants near hostel enable us to eat traditional and delicious food. Hotel decoration is beautiful and room is clean, shared washroom is better than I expect. Staff is friendly, lend his bicycle when I ask for renting a bicycle. Hope to come back George Town in near future.

    Great Location”

    The place is walking distance from a lot of the main attractions like the Penang Street Art, the Upside Down Museum, Little India, etc. A grab ride to Penang Hill and Kek Lok Si temple weren't all that expensive too. Lots of delicious street food available along Chulia Street too. Overall the place itself was satisfactory, but I think it could be cleaner. Would definitely recommend staying here.

    Stayed in double room with shared bathroom. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was small and basic but comfortable. Needs a mirror at head height. Only three showers, three toilets and two sinks for a lot of rooms. The facilities were not kept clean enough: hair on the floor; toothpaste waste not cleaned the four days we were there; whole thing in desperate need of painting. General feeling of being unkept. Location excellent - 5 minutes to Chulia Street and 10 minutes to bus terminal at Komtar (where the public bus comes to from the main bus terminal).

    Simple room, good location, professional staff”

    The room is like a box, very small and has almost no facilities (Garden view is nothing because you have to close the window anyway) However, I enjoyed the spacious shared bathroom with plenty of space to put my things. I enjoyed the soft blanket on my bed. And I felt that the staff are very professional.

    Staffs are well prepared and are answerable for my inquiries of the bus route and bus stop to the local airport. Everything are fine except the nearest lavatory on the same floor. Just one lavatory for 14 people+ some is unbalanced. When the shower is in use by someone, you have to visit downstairs.

    Amazing stay. But becareful of summons if driving.”

    Nice enviroment. Fair price. Good location.

    It's a overall good stay for that day. The only weak place is parking slot hardly available. And you will need to purchase the parking ticket and set up late night to prevent early summon of penang government. Secondly the wifi of the hotel can hardly reach 04 room, there's only a little bar of wifi left on the door corner so me and my girlfriend will have to lean on the door in order to use wifi. But still the place is neat and clean,and backpackers recommended. Just the house keeping always forget to refill the shampoo in the bathroom.

    The guesthouse has a very nice simple feel to it with lots of lovely greenery everywhere, it’s nicely done, and a good location. We had a private room with private bathroom. It was comfortable enough but bathroom and shower room was quite smelly and felt a bit dirty. The room itself was fine with a very comfortable bed and pillows. We had 2 nights stay and for an hour between 10-11pm there was some sort of religious music going on outside VERY loudly, drums and symbols. Really irritating but nothing we could do. Not sure if this happens every night but it did for the 2 we were there.
