            Good breakfast buffet! ”

            The place is located in the main hub of George Town. Beds are confortable and the breakfast included is really good for the value. It’s a buffet so you can eat as much as you need. The dorms have big lockers to save your stuff but they are quiet small. Not much space to move around or even leave your bags at the floor. What I missed about the place is having a social area to meet fellow travelers.

The room was very comfortable, as were the showers and other amenities with quality towel and blankets are provided too. Excellent buffet spread of breakfast with prata roti canai, noodles, toast with jam & butter, sausages, baked beans, mashed potato, hard boiled egg, coffee & tea. Half boiled egg upon request and free flow of filter water all day. I would go back without a second thought. Everything is very good as this is not a party hostel. Recommended 100%!

            I Wouldn't Stay here Again If There Are Other Options”

            I had to extend my Penang stay for a couple of days so I had to book for another hotel but didn't want to travel far so I chose this along Muntri street. Unlike my previous hotel, they need a 50RM deposit for the room key. I booked a double room at the ground floor. Room 100. It was ok with a TV but I can only watch like 2 channels. Most of the channels are other language or has no audio. First night was ok. Their shower water smells a bit of sewage water. Toilet is small and no tissue. On my second day, the housekeeping kept trying to open my door eventhough I didn't request for cleaning. It was very noisy on my second night as two guests were talking loudly at the common area and it was very audible at room 100. Also I woke up in the middle of the night because the room suddenly started to smell of onions like pungent rotten onions. It was so bad I had to leave the room. Spraying perfume didn't help. I think someone died in there and was haunting the room. The breakfast was okay.

Their staff was superbly amazing, Shan had really good advice, great help and even accommodated my request to use the shower facilities to clean up from my long trip at 8am before checking in at 2pm. There was ample car and bike parking right in front of Ryokan. Over my 3 days there, I met the most amazing people from Europe, America and Malaysia. Many of them checking out from the neighbouring hostels to check in over here. Thanks for having me, I really enjoyed my stay! Will definitely come again

I stayed 4 nights here and got free upgraded from 6 bunk beds to 4 bunk beds without paying extra. The hostel is right near major places in Georgetown, a world heritage site. Location is nearby to Love Lane & Chulia Street, the happening area and also food court. Everything was perfect from clean towel to comfortable bed with quality pillow & blanket, every bed has an electrical outlet and two USB ports, lockable cabinet with a lock to leave your belongings, enough clean separate toilet and shower. The shower provide body shampoo and shampoo for us to shower, so there's no need for traveller to bring these items. Excellent buffet spread of breakfast with prata roti canai, noodles, toast with jem & butter, sausages, baked beans, mashed potato, hard boiled egg, coffee & tea.

            Amazing stay! Especially great location and great value for money! Good breakfast. Some downsides to be noted: toilet paper outside the toilets (REALLY annoying and kept hearing people complaining about it!), wifi quite slow and this is an old building so the floor is cracking a lot and the beds are moving when someone walks down the hallway (but that's part of the charm I guess)

            Just 2 min walk from Love Lane which is good bc you’re away from the loud music and it’s easy to use the bus from there (you just have to stop in Love Lane then just walk from there). I love the comfy beds and pillows and they also provide heavy (as for me) breakfast which is really worth the money.

The hostel is located in the hearth of the historical center, still it was quiet during the night. Stylish and comfy common area at the first floor and in front of the building. Toilet and showers always clean, room was also cleaned every day. Staff was very helpful with onward travel and keeping the baggage. Breakfast was surprisingly good with eggs, roti, curries, potato, toast and jam, strong fresh coffee... but wake up early to enjoy all of these before they finish. Only the WiFi was not working well.

            My stay at Ryokan Munri Hostel was pleasant. The hostel is right near major places in Georgetown, a world heritage site. The hostel is clean and the beds are comfortable. They also change bedsheets everyday and provide towels. In the common area, there are few books, games, and an iron board too. Overall, 10/10!
