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 room is nice, comfortable. However, the blanket is too small for both of us. The restroom is dark and scary if use it in the midnight. but it is clean and body shampoo is provided. as the floor and wall is made of wood, sound proof is not so good. but, all the tenant is quiet, no noisy issue.

Great Hostel”
I normally do not stay in hostels with so many beds in a dorm room but this place is great. Such a great attentive owner, good vibes, really comfortable lounge on the bottom floor and strong AC. The location does not get any better.

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).

The worst dorm bed I've ever had. ”
The dorm bed is easy shaking and making noise whenever climbing up or down or just turning over. I could not sleep well all the night.

Private bathroom is in poor condition”
Location is good. However, a double room with private bathroom is not value-for-money: 1. Shower head is in bad condition - water doesn’t flow properly. 2. There is no hand soap for toilet, which is a separate room from shower. 3. There is no change of towel and housekeeping for second day of stay. Other feedback: 4. Dispenser for cold drinking water doesn’t work well - no cold water most of the time. 5. Sound of rain water on roof was really loud, disturbing our sleep.

Cool location, but...”
Internet is very very slow and shaky, so it's hard to work and you need to go to a cafe to get some speedy inet. Staff at reception seems to be more concerned with their smartphones then actually check people in. Also knowledge of the area is not very good. We asked for advice on Hawker center, and they didn't really know which one is good. Also kind of pissed, that they did not mention at checkin that if we want to checkout before 8am I would need to get my deposit the day before, only found that out by chance as i wanted to checkout at 0730am and saw a tiny piece of paper hanging at the door. so, i didn't get it back (yet? i'm in contact via mail with them)

Above average”
I can't really recommend Rope Walk as there is much better value in Georgetown. The location was great and beds were comfortable, but overall it was disappointing. There was somehow a mix-up with our booking so instead of double room with private bathroom we ended up with a twin room with shared bathroom at the same price, which was fine except that definitely affected the value for money. The shared bathrooms were clean enough, but seemed not regularly maintained so often ran out of toilet paper, soap, etc. Coffee and tea were available 24/7, but no cups. The manager was super stressed out and constantly complaining about a big group that was staying there at the time, saying some rather unkind and inappropriate things (especially considering the group wasn't actually bothering anyone). In the end we left and found another place nearby with a beautiful large private room with bathroom at the same price and with very friendly managers.
