Double Room Shared Bathroom
Stayed 1 night in April 2017
Value for money”
We got the room with window which is great for air circulation, but too much noise from the road. Simple room with nice bed. Old building, but good design. Shared bathroom, but clean enough for us. Staffs are friendly. Breakfast is ok. Location not so far from tourist spot.

Safe,clean and quiet”
The Frame is located on Chulia Street only steps away from the bus stop for the 101 which takes you to Batu Ferringhi beach and the National Park. Bakeries and cafes are also within a 5-minute walk. The hostel is cleaned daily and offers a breakfast of fruit, toast, tea and coffee. There is a TV with DVD's. The staff was very helpful with questions regarding transport or restaurants. Special thanks to Jon who suggested I visit the National Park--my best day! This is a quiet hostel--not a party scene. The decor is minimalist/industrial but that uncluttered look makes for a serene setting.

Twin Room Shared Bathroom

Clean stylish hostel in fantastic location”
The guesthouse was beautifully decorated, rooms were clean, staff really friendly. And the location was absolutely perfect - right in the centre of Georgetown. We had a private twin room on the top floor but the downside was the communal toilet/showers were on the floor below and at the other end of the building. Very far! We would stay here again but would make sure we had a room closer to shared bathroom.

Good Stay Value for Money”
Location is excellent, real close to a stretch of food market at night. Room was great too. However, could hear loud footsteps on wooden floor at the upper level.

Loved it”
Clean, comfortable beds, good wifi, hot showers and close to everything (although in George Town everything is close to everything). Basic breakfast, but you'll want to head to a cafe for that anyway. Would definitely stay again!

Double Room Shared Bathroom
Stayed 3 nights in March 2017
Really nice place”
We had a room with a shared bathroom. Room was clean and bed was comfotable. Shared bathroom was nice and cleaned often. Laundry service was really fast and price was good. Building was old and it got really noisy during some of the nights (our room was right above the common area and kitchen) but they offered us free earplugs so we got a good night sleep. Free breakfast was toast with butter and jelly, coffee or tea and sometimes they had some fresh fruits. Water, tee and coffee was offered free all day. Staff was nice and helpful. Location was really nice, you can walk there from the ferry and little India and the Love Lane (lots of cafes, restaurants and hostels there!) are right next to it.
