Feeling like home”
The hostel is very comfortable, with cozy designs. There are clean and good toilets and shower room. I also appreciate them for providing hair dryers and laundry machine/drying machine for free. The staff is friendly and helpful. The design of using same fob for the gate and personal locker is very convenient. Will definitely come again when I visit the city.
Very confortable, humble staff, the location is easy to find, large bed, very clean, complete facilities, there is a link bike shelter in front of the dorm, very helpfull for me strolling around the city with bike. The dorm very safe, feels like home. I love sogor dorm.
Safe and secure”
This is my first time living in a dorm. And I really recommend girls/ladies whom are travelling solo to consider this place. Very safe and place is not so discreet. Owner is super friendly and she is always asking if we need assistance in anything. Would love to come back. For muslim travellers, you can request to use the dressup room to do your prayers. :)
My second time here~will still choose to stay here next time”
Friendly staff and clean comfortable rooms. Enjoy my time chatting with other girls.
Quiet and nice place.”
Host really responsive in answering my inquiry. I arrived late and she ensure someone is there to let me in. Its a quiet place but nice. If you are the type of person who wants to hang out with other traveller, this is not the place for you. However, it is suit my needs. Clean place and nice bed. Location is ok as I traveled by grab most of the time. Will be back again soon.
I love that this is a girls only hostel. There were many amenities including washer and dryer and snacks and coffee/tea. Camille (sp?) was helping the owner and she was wonderful. It was very easy and inexpensive to Uber around Georgetown. The bed was kind of hard but not the hardest I've encountered in my four months in Asia. Safe location and clean establishment.
Good place to stay ”
It’s really good for solo traveller to stay,cause it’s girl’s dormitory. You could meet friends here. Check out time is very flexible. I left around 5pm,cause I booked a flight at night. Also they have washing machine and dryer,with laundry detergent provided. That’s all free,I was surprised,cause almost all the other hostel will charge you. Also,they have snacks,raincoat provided for free. The facilities are very new,with air conditioning,hair dryer,microwave.... And the manager Akane is very nice. It’s really relax for staying there. Thanks a lot.
Awesome place, highly recommend!”
This dormitory is the perfect place for any solo female traveller. It's spotless clean, highly maintained and has the friendliest staff. I highly appreciate the privacy a capsule provides and the lockers beneath the beds are big enough for any normal sized backpack or suitcase which makes the place look even tidier and not at all cramped as when the luggage needs to be stored outside.
Personally highly recommended!!”
I'm a well-traveled solo traveler who was in Penang for a friend's wedding and short excursion. Decided to try this capsule hotel/hostel as I'd never been in one and this was a delight and the self check-in and check-out (thus flexible timing) was excellent. The facilities were clean and well taken care of with enough for everyone (3 hair dryers, 3 bathrooms (+1 additional shower room), free washer and dryer, 1 steam iron and a changing room) surprisingly quiet. None of the girls I overlapped with were friendly unfortunately (so we didn't strike up convos) but the plus point was everyone was respectful of other other. Akane was also a fantastic host - readily available and pleasant from booking to checking out. Super recommended! Do give this place a try :)
More than perfect”
owners are very caring and all designs are so well organised and planned to maximize the value of everything. I strongly recommend people who are well educated and willing to share and communicate with others to take this opportunity to make friends and dig into the culture of locals by choosing this perfect hostel.
safe and relaxing stay for solo !!”
i just stayed one night here but even if i stay more it would be nice experience and no stress. this is really recommendable place for girls especially solo. very clean everywhere including bathroom and public place, and comfortable bed with holding desk and light. and young staffs looks shy but attentive when i ask something for. the security is quite rigid to enter the guest space so very very safe. you can enjoy some local food stalls nearby just about 5minutes walk so you dont need to take a bus ride for another place. only the downside is a bit far from every landmarks in george town but you can borrow bicycle if you want. but be careful to ride on road with a bad condition. overall i highly recommended this hotel if you visit Penang for solo.
It makes you feel at home.”
My stay at Sogor Girls Dormitory was an amazing experience. My friends and I (total of 5) have only great reviews about this place. The beds are spacious and comfortable! Each capsule bed are equipped with a side table, 2 usb points and 1 plug. You do not have to worry about security as everyone is provided with a locker that can only be access through an individual key card. They are fully equipped were you can expect washing machine (detergent provided), hairdryers, steamer and soap, shampoo. The common area is a great place if you just want to stay in. The wifi signal is strong so you can do your work on your laptop without any worries! Customer service is excellent and I appreciate the flexibility on checking-in/out times. If I ever need a place to get away from home, I will definitely come back here to stay!
My stay at Sogor was wonderful & memorable one! I was greeted warmly by the check in staff at Soul cafe. Speedy check in procedure and clear explanation by their staff. I was really impressed by the interior design and the amenities available at Sogor. Especially the rest area at the mezzanine floor is perfect for girls talk and movies. Books at the library are lovely although the quantity still limited. I like the coway bidets and sanitary bin inside each toilet which i don't find in most of the hotels in Malaysia. I'd definitely come back for my business trip and recommend to all my female friends!
Thumbs Up for Sogor”
had a 3 days 2 nights stay during the Penang Bridge Run recently. The hotel location is a bonus because it is nearby KOMTAR and easy to take public transport to other places. The hostel is very clean and comfortable and ladies staying there are friendly and respectful to each other. check-in was a breeze and you got to put RM100 as deposit for towels and access card. I made use of the laptop with free wifi, the common room ( watching movies after run), the washing machine, hairdryer ( much appreciated). NIA ( the helper) there is much help too. Will be back again.
A very new, neat ,clean and cosy setting. ”
Very unique staying experience as it blends in the concept of the Japanese Style capsules and best of all is all female version . Very comfy and cosy stay as most of the amenities were covered. Very helpful, warm & friendly staffs. Very suitable for female solo travellers and backpackers. Very convenient location to komtar. Nearby local delicacies round the corner. Next to the Dorm was Soul Cafe. Not only serve coffee, beverages but also afew well loved Italian ala carte. A place not only for snacks & dinning, but a gathering for photographer lovers to share their insights.
No need to look for another accommodation!”
Sogor is truly the best place to stay for female travelers. The individual capsules are spacious, with a very clean and comfortable bed, a retractable table, electrical outlets (they even have a USB socket), and some clothes hangers. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained, and they have a laundry area provided with a clothes rack and some hangers to dry your clothes. Breakfast isn't included, but there is a pantry at the lobby with coffee, tea, and cookies which are available for 24-hours. The staffs are there during most of the day and would gladly help you with anything you need. The only downside is that the place is quite a walking distance from the tourist attractions, but you can opt for a Grab ride instead. Overall it was a very pleasant stay and I would not hesitate to stay here again the next time I come to Penang!
Excellent 24hour service ”
Information can be get easily, fully equipped and convenience.... The last night before I left.... Get to know other dorm mate..... And have a little gathering and chit chat at the check in table... Is sweet and comfortable for us... Everything is good... But some chairs are broken... However I think after the owner notice about it... It will be repair soon...

The staff here is very very warm and nice!! This place feels like home. It's really one of the best hostels that I have stayed in.
