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!
Everything is nice and clean. The female dorm has its own toilet/bathroom. The staffs are so friendly and helpful even though I checked in late at night. The location is very convenient and I really love it!! Very recommended!
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.
The hostel is very nice and a great place to meet other travellers. And luckily not a noisy party place but a nice sociable atmosphere. Staff was great and very helpful, too. Definitely recommend staying there.
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.
Unique and quaint ”
Value for money. what was lovely was the classic and traditional concept of this place.
Budget hotel for budget traveler”
Could get better for this price, from other budget hotels. No breakfast, not even a simple toast.
Great staff and Good location”
Best experience so far, the staff is very friendly and helpful , super value for money
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).
Great little Guest house in Penang, great location and fairly good value for money.. we left it very late just before Xmas and this was one of a couple of places available.. however I’d defiantly recommend! Clean but dated rooms.. and helpful staff! A*
Clean, simple, friendly”
Stayed in a bunk room which was clean and functional. The staff were friendly and helpful, even when we arrived close to midnight. The shared bathroom facilities were clean. Ideal location and good value.
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.
Value for money ”
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.”
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.
friendly staff and strategic location”
The location is convenient. There are night and morning food markets located just one street away. The Guesthouse is clean. Their staff, Johnny, is the gem of the Guesthouse who put extra efforts to help the guests. Thanks johnny!! Recommend to every one!!!
Good but you should know what you are getting into”
Good service, friendly staff, great location in Goergetown. But, quite noisy (no insulation and there is a mosque nearby). Good facility for its age so do not expect the same level of your normal modern 5 star hotel here.
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.
Near to Georgetown cultural street.
pros: good vibe, location, cheap and nice restaurants nearby cons: no shampoo and soap, no computer in lounge
Very nice staff and close from Kimberley street food night market the Penang local food.
