1 Person in 8-Bed Dormitory - Mixed
Stayed 3 nights in April 2017
I got bitten by bedbugs here, but it was otherwise a good hostel.”
Unfortunately, the bites didn't show up until my final night, but they were definitely from bedbugs. I also found an adult one on the floor near my bed.

Great Location. Smack in the middle of Penang Georgetown”
The location is great. Easy access to eateries and bars. However, no car parking lots. Its a quaint little place indeed.

A second stay at Siok hostel proved even better than my first stay. ”
Friendly staff, clean facilities, good location, ample (but simple) backpackers breakfast, free earplugs and helpful recommendations for places to go and things to do in Penang.

Best hostel ive stayed at ever”
This was my second time this year in Penang on a visa run from Thailand. My first trip in Feburary i went for the cheapest walk in hostel i could find which was located on Love Lane. Definition of "cheap." This hostel however was recommended by a friend and it out did my expectations. Its not a hostel to party but relax and feel the luxurious travellers rarely can afford but this you can. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm shared only by 1 other girl then 2 outgoing ladies the next. The beds are fabulously big for a single and comfy, aircon is amazing. The lockers provided are shockingly big in a good way and not high up that your lifting a hige backpack over your head. Wonderful hot showers and toilets with toilet roll! Little shower baskets to hang your shampoos was a nice touch and a hair dryer :) staff were more than welcoming and accommodating. Wifi was a little poor even with just one girl in my room. The location was more than perfect for all my needs. its a must hostel!!
