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.

everything was perfect!. The price is highly reasonable. I've been here three times before and they never dissapoint. They keep upgrading and improving every single aspect. The floors are now covered with mat. And the breakfast provided is much satisfying! Thumbs up for ryokan muntri street. Highly recommended for backpackers!

You can pay a very cheap price to enjoy a very relaxing and artistic environment in Ryokan Muntri. The owner are so friendly and you can make friends with other roomates as well. The cleanliness is undeniably perfect. Try it out!! :)

Felt relax and truly liked this place...! Clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. You need to get used to the co ed toilet cum bathroom. It was closed to street art and my favourite steamboat place. Will certainly stay in this place in my next return.
