      Exceptional”
      Most friendly and helpful receptionists ever, so lovely and great first impression of hotel. Everything about the hostel was exceptional, and I don't give praise lightly. It was clean, stylish with great value. Facilities were well equipped and room was clean and comfortable. I could go on but suffice it to say I was very pleased with my stay, and although short and sweet this time, I hope to be back for a longer visit in the future.

      GREAT EXPERIENCE !”
      Greetings ! it was my first time staying at Tido Penang Hostel and it was an amazing experience. The rooms and toilet are clean, and spacious ! It even have Qiblat direction at each room which will ease the muslim travellers who wish to perform prayer in the room. Every room can be lock from inside and from the outside via key given. I have to thank Nandhiny, the receptionist during the morning shift and an indian lady that worked during the evening shift for the warm hospitality as well as the other friendly staffs. The location of this hostel is also near to the main road, and easy to get foods during the night (close to Chulia Street; food street during the night). Look forward to stay here again.

      I do not recommend this place”
      Only pro is nice and spacious lounge Cons: Not profession staff and they do not know how to multi task- had to wait for a long time just to ask one quick question or to buy a bottle of water Rude and impatient staff Staff not welcoming at all- one was always on the phone while sitting at the front desk. No one ever said hello or welcome No wifi in the room- weird it works during the day But it doesn't work at night making me think they turn it off... Bathroom floor and toilet seat always wet This property has potential because it is clean and fairly close to the city center but I will not work with the staff there. Look for another hostel where staff are more welcoming and hospitable.

      Rude staff and No wifi in the room”
      Horrible staff. They all need retraining and don't know anything about hospitality. They are rude to customers and gave wrong informations. Wi-Fi DOES NOT work in the dorm rooms. You have to go up to the common area for Wi-Fi but it is not even that strong.

      No no no no please do not stay here!”
      Please save some trouble and don't stay here. We booked this place after looking at the pictures of the lovely common area but it was a huge mistake. All the front desk staff were extremely rude, one raising her voice at me and giving me an attitude. I have been traveling for several months and stayed at so many places but the staff here were the RUDEST!! If they were not rude, then they were not helpful. One lady did not want to rent the bikes to us saying it is not worth it. She told us to go to Chulia Street where it is cheaper but she had no idea how much we can expect to pay. There we ended up paying exact SAME as the hostel. Most of the shower head holders were broken- either slipping down or falling, making it hard to shower. There are so many better hostels on or near Chulia street around the same price so look for somewhere else. One lady in my dorm moved to the Frame Guesthouse after one night here. Because of my experience at this hostel, I have nothing good to sat about
