If you are on a super tight budget and don't mind pokey rooms that aren't really very clean then this is perfect. Staff are friendly, Wi-Fi is dreadful but the location is great.

The room I stayed does not have ventilation.”
I stayed here for 3 nights. Shared with 3 person in 1 room. Pros: Near to places such as love lane(eating and drinking outlet) Cons: The room doesn't have ventilation and it smells. The toilet need to be clean at all time. Wifi strength doesn't reach the room.

Dark and dusty”
First impression of lobby is not good with bad smell. The staircase heading to 1st floor is so dirty with a lot of spider net and the aisle is extremely dark along the way walking heading to my room. I can’t really see what is beside the path, there is only a few of dim red bulb on. This makes me felt so insecure. There is a small pantry with a sofa and some books that covered by dust. I got a smelly room. My room has a very dirty fan which looks like hasn’t been clean up for few months, with a tattered blue bed sheet and pillow case. Pillow is dirty, smelly and yellowish. The space makes me feel so insecure. It doesn’t need to be classy or great, but I just want a clean and safe place to stay. It’s not safe and clean at all, very disappointed.

Looks better on the photos”
It is a place in poor condition, the "roof terrasse" looked more like a dumping area, the staff is very little helpful and the people staying there are noisy and you can hear everything through the walls. The shower floor is constantly wet since water from the floor above was coming down, I was hoping it would only be shower water but couldn't tell for sure

Did not clean the bed is very dirty. Dusty germs in the bedroom. There was a dirty rat running in the bed. The bathroom was not cleaned. The bedroom floor is very dirty and Bed linen is very dirty. Pictures of the hotels show good looks. But reality. When you arrive at the hotel stay. Every picture is a lie. Picture is scam It's not true. Bed room is very dirty. So I tell everyone to remember that it is not appropriate and do not book a room at this hotel. You are sorry and very disappointed with the service is not impressed and not service.

Worst hostel ever”
It is the worst hostel I have been in my 10 months travelling. The dorm was horrible, no light, no electricity, they sell it as a 4 bed dorm but instead it was a big room with many beds in it. And the worst thing NO LOCKERS! They suggested me taking my money and valuable staff with me all the time. And then, they just gave me 1 lower sheet to put on bed + the pillow cover, no upper sheet, I asked for it and they said that's what I paid for. And the smell of the sheets was horrible. I booked 2 nights and I wanted to leave the first night but to avoid loosing the money I asked them to change me to a single room for 1 night instead of 2 nights in the dorm. They accepted but I had to pay 10 ringgit extra. The smell of the single room was even worse, the smell of the pillow was disgusting. I got an infection in my ass because of the dust and moist of the room. I'm not a poss guy, I'm a budget backpacker travelling for 10 months and this was the worst place ever. Not recommended.

Cheapest, but not recommended.”
I booked this place on Agoda for only 12rm. Staff is quite friendly. Dorm on the 2nd floor is a weird area, with an unpleasant atmosphere. Didn't feel good. Worst of all are mosquito's and bedbugs! I tried many hostels in Muntri Street. They all have bedbugs (except for My Hostel Muntri). I moved to Xavier's because My Hostel Muntri was full that day. But I wouldn't come here again. Unless you can't afford to pay 5-10rm more per night. Because for 20-25rm you get a much better hostel!

Only As A Last Resort”
I'm a nomad and was relocating to George Town, Penang so I booked a couple of nights here. A very friendly receptionist helped to orient me and was just nice overall. Pretty much everything else was horrid. It was supposed to be a smaller dorm. There were four bunks, but then four additional beds behind curtains. And a short walk around the corner revealed eight more bunks. It smelled. The bathroom with a combo sink, toilet, and shower were minimally cleaned. Toilet tissue wasn't promptly replaced. Mosquitoes were plentiful. I asked for the mosquito smoke coils which helped more with the smell than the mosquitoes. Other than that, it was quiet, but very hot. No sheet is provided for privacy in the bed. As a woman in a mixed dorm, that would have been nice. Also the bunks squeaked with every single move. If you, or anyone had to change positions while sleeping, everyone can hear you move.

I can understand that it is cheap and therefore would not be loaded with exceptional facilities. ”
But in this hostel, nothing is in the right place except for its location. I regret getting into a place which is a bit cheaper but much worse than any other in the area. No Airconditionder, dirty beds, dirty, raw and unmaintained bathrooms plus no proper setup for access at night.

Nothing to brag. Can't complain.”
Cleanliness is very poor. The sink? Don't let me start. The room, the doorway all too claustraphobic for us. Staff is okay. Location wise is pretty decent, its just walking distance to main tourist attraction. Overall we enjoyed our stay in Penang coz we spent outside our room so we came in late at night just to sleep. If that's what you have in planned, than it shoud be fine. If not, skip this one.

It's really value for money except I can't stand the Muntri Street of mosquito! I've been stay in 2 hostels on the street for times, but get stung every time ... if u want to stay there, bear with the mosquito or choose air-conditioned room to get rid from Muntri Street mosquito!
