1. Friendly staff, good services, clean environment, good location. 2. Hope they can provide a proper tips box at the front desk because 3 of us totally don't know where to give our tips. 3. Thanks for Ryokan to give us a wonderful trip in Penang.

Ryokan was the best. The location was so convenient for me to walk anywhere and the breakfast was good. Room was clean and the air-conditioner was able to be controlled separately in each dorm by the guests. Especially the staffs were so kind, always smiling and helping me out. Multiple factors must be satisfied to make one's trip fascinating, including... More

We stayed here as a group of three and our stay was comfortable. The shared bathroom was kept really clean (a definite bonus!!) and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast and wifi was included. You are required to pay a government charge of 2 ringgit per person (not refundable) and leave a 100 ringgit deposit for the room key (refundable... More

I have had a very good experience while i was staying here. Toilet, room are cleaned. Quiet place to stay. In the middle of Georgetown, just a minute walk to the bus stop. It is very cheap to stay here.

This is the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at! I don't expect much from hostels but Ryokan surprised me by being SO CLEAN! The timber floor in the room was dust free and dirt free and incredibly well maintained. Clean towels daily was a nice bonus too. Kudos to the staff for a job fantastically done. Yes the floors are... More

Wonderful experience here days ago with a bunch of my uni friends. The environment is really clean and the owners are extremely friendly! Strategic location if you would like to go for cycling around penang. You wouldn't regret!

Clean dorms, nice interior design, close to Heritage area, local food. Good location. Value for money, easy to get around and quiet and suitable for budget travellers !! Friendly warm reception, staffs is friendly and helpful. But it gets really noisy when people are walking past , we can hear them running up and down the stairs. Anyway, I think... More

Impressed by the "room service" where change new towel, bed will be done, and this is not a hotel, but hostel. Definitely will come back for my next visit to Penang. The breakfast was great too, not your typical hostel breakfast - bread and jam, but sausages, baked beans, eggs, toast, fried noodles, chee cheong fun. Nothing I could complain.
