This is actually the second time I'm staying here, well the first time (Sep 2014) was so good that I had no doubts to stay here again for my second visit (February 2015). The staff is beyond helpful, the guesthouse is one of the cleanest I've ever stayed. I recommend room no. 02, it's spacious and has two windows. Beds... More

Thai visa expired so off to Malaysia we go. Have never been to Penang - booked the Chulia Heritage Hotel on line for 2 nights. Had read to stay there as visa service available across the street. More like across the parking lot. Front desk said "right there" pointing out the hotel front entrance to the rear entrance of Stardust... More

We stayed here for a few nights beginning of Feb. After being robbed in Kota Kinabalu at Seasons Street Lodge (don't stay there) we were on an extremely tight budget to finish our trip throughout Malaysia. We literally checked out every budget accomadation in chinatown, lubuh chulia, and love lane. Of all the places we only came across, there was... More

We were looking for a fan double room, door by door, and after seeing a couple of ugly and dirty places we found this one. They had only an a/c room available, the rest was full, so under that heat we decided to get that room. Was amaizing, very fresh, clean and chill.They served food, and the cheapest beer in... More

Stardust its most cheap guesthouse which i can find in Chulia street. Only 40 MYR and you have clean double bed room with shared toilet, hot water and good free wifi. In other places for this price only dormitory. Also in guesthouse you can change money, visa service and tickets. Its good place, and i reccomend it to my friends.

This is not much to look at from the outside, but I can assure you it's above all expectations when you get to your room! We spent ages in sweltering heat trying to look for a room in Georgetown as many options are beyond disgusting! So it was a really pleasant surprise to stumble across this gem after about an...

Me and my partner stayed here for 3 nights and found it was everything we needed! Our room was small and basic but clean and all we needed! The shared toilets upstairs were also well maintained and clean as well. It's a very short walk from everything too! We found the staff to be very helpful and friendly which was... More

After discovering stardust I never stay anywhere else during my visa runs from Thailand. They take care of everything at prices usually slightly below most other nearby places and are very welcoming. The owner has given me loads of little freebees too (water, photocopys, quick internet searches, etc.) Nice clean basic rooms for a good price and option of a... More
