Hostel with lots of bad features!”
The place is not so easy to find although it's located along the road. Owner can put bigger and more visible signage of hostel name. Not good soundproofing at all. You can hear every step, banging of doors from the same floor and up or lower floors. You can hear all the noise and sounds from vehicles. No complimentary bottled water. There was a leaking on the private family room when it was raining. The ceiling fan creates sound if you make it faster. The bed is not good as it makes sound when you move even a bit. The bed cover, blanket and linen are dirty and it makes us scratch due to itchyness the whole night. Owner/receptionist a bit cocky and seems arrogant. Not so accommodating. I will never stay again on this hostel even if it gets cheaper. Just stayed here due to very minimal availability of other hotels during our stay in Penang. Cannot recommend either.

Great hostel in Georgetown”
The location is great. Just across the road is a really charming boardwalk that leads to the sea. The many great restaurants and cafes of Georgetown are a short walk away. A brand new convenience store just opened up as we were there (leave Sim Citystay and turn left and it's a few doors along) run by lovely people and really helpful. A little bit further along on that direction is a huge hangar filled with food stalls and, when we went, the most amazing pop trio belting out Malaysisn hit after hit to a largely unmoved audience (we liked it and the food was really good). The hostel was clean and the staff friendly.

Great spot and great staff ”
Location was excellent - close to the jetty and easy access to all of old Georgetown. Gentleman at the front desk was lovely and free coffee/tea in the lobby. Free computer to use and printing available if necessary. Room was decent size, clean and fab/AC. Bathrooms clean however girls hot shower on the pink floor not functioning. Great stay for price!

Simple and Nice”
Right opposite the Clan Jetties. Near the ferry jetty, as well, where one can get the bus easily. 5-10 minutes walk to China House for people who likes cakes. It is away to the famous eateries but within walking distance. The room is pleasant and bed comfortable.
