        Great stay at ST Hostel”
        Han and his family were so accommodating when we arrived early and ended up having to stay an extra night because of cancelled travel arrangements. The whole family was welcoming and it was a great central location to be, nothing too far to walk to and we found some great places to eat within a 10-15 minute walk. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Georgetown that’s close enough to the party, but you still want a good nights sleep, ST Hostel is the place to stay

        We spend one night in Penang, we were nicely welcome by the host who gave us nice recommendation of what to do and where. Room and bathroom were clean. We jsut hoped to have real sheets for the bed instead of towel sheets as the feeling was a bit weird for us, other than that, it was perfect.

        We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms and all facilities are very nice and well maintained. Having an air conditioner was an absolute must for us in the Penang heat. Although you don't have a private bathroom the shared facilities are kept very clean. This hostel is in a great location with all the best sites of George Town less than a ten minute walk away. There are plenty of good restaurants around too. The owners are really friendly and gave us lots of information about George Town and helped us organise our onward travel.

        Location, value, cleanliness
        For what you pay, the place is well worth it. The location is good, just a few minutes away to Little India, Chulia Street and the Esplanade. The room given was spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms, although shared, are clean too. There is laundry service available too. Breakfast is home-cooked style. Wifi is available in the room. Do note, there is no tv in the room so don't expect in-room entertainment. No buffet breakfast but we were offered additional toast if we wanted. All in all, it was a pleasant stay and would be happy to stay here again. Definitely recommend this place for those who only need a place for the night and travel on budgets.

        It's like you have your own place”
        I stayed here for three nights. The place is really quiet and immaculately clean, but the staff is rarely there and the toilet paper was out for two days. The first two nights we had a smaller room further off the front and while a little cramped for two, was much better for sleep purposes. DO NOT take the front room. The noise from the street is loud - it's like you're sleeping on the curb. I rarely saw any other guests, although the place was apparently full hence why we paid more for the larger front room. It's super quiet, and in a fabulous location in Little India. There appear to be two staff members, the man is helpful and speaks English, but I couldn't communicate with the lady even in gestures (not her fault - I'm in her country not vice versa). Much of the day no one appears to be there, although security is good and via electronic key fob system. I would recommend this place if you're looking for cleanliness, quiet (except in the front room), and comfort as long you're willing to sacrifice any type of social atmosphere, and can get by with minimal staff assistance. The term "hostel" is a bit of a misnomer. More like a guesthouse where you can enjoy peace and quiet and be left to your own devices.

        The hostel locates in a quite and peaceful area where you can easily go to Penang famous sites in just a few minutes. It's a warm hostel with super clean room! Although the stairs are quite steep and narrow, the decoration of ST hostel makes me feel calm and comfortable. The hostel owners are very nice and friendly. It was very kind of them to show us the best sight-seeing in town and give us some great advice in choosing place to enjoy local food. Service was better than I expected. Just a minor minus point that the wifi connection didn't work so well when more and more people stayed in hostel. Beside that, I'm very happy with my trip and hope to have a chance to come back to Penang in the near future.

        The host, cleanliness, appearance and location of this hostel is excellent. I enjoyed my stay here and the host gave us a lot of help. They also gave us each a bottle of water everyday, Three issues: 1) bathroom: shared - three small stalls, doubling as both toilet and shower. Male and female. Challenging to use for price we paid. 2) cost: $50 a night AUD made this place fairly costly for Malaysia. Large room, great location and lovely hosts made up for this a little. 3) stair: do not book this guesthouse if you have mobility challenges. All rooms are one or two flights of stairs up. You can keep both hands on rails at all times, which is good because stairs are of an uneven hieght, not level and very narrow.
