Paid 45 renminbi per night 4 person dorm. Key deposit required. Price not far off a basic private hotel room. Nearby hostels 15-25 renminbi dorm room. Some air con, most not. I'd recommend it if on a budget but wanting good bathroom and clean rooms. Decor and rooms clean and modern. Felt a little sterile but was quiet. Apart from... More

Location is very strategic, with 5 minutes walking distance you can reach those famous local food, cafe, public transport, etc. I love their breakfast because they served roti canai, one of our famous local food in Malaysia....

Stayed for a week whilst in Penang and it was a nice hostel with good facilities. The dorm was four person with a little light and locker per person which was nice and the room was a good size. The downstairs area had drinks available with a good TV area to chill in, was an enjoyable stay

I traveled with my two sisters and we spent two nights here. Room is spotless and shower is strong. The host even offered us cutlery and utensils warmly upon... More

Organized, clean, and it's just comfortable. The 24 hours free cookies is a great feature. The air-conditioner of room 212 is not cold enough and slow to cold-up the whole room. Wi-Fi signal strength is okay. The breakfast is a bit too dull and taste just average. Too few parking space for cars. Service very good. Overall, it's a great... More

Love this hostel. They have few female dorms upstairs and mix gender dorms(with friends) with 4 beds and 6 beds that are double decker, there's private room for friends who don't want to share the same room with strangers but the price is slightly more expensive compared to upstairs' dorms. The rooms are clean and neat, I love how the... More

I stay here every time I go to Penang - the room is clean, comfy, and staff are friendly, not to mention location is great too. Plus, safety is a big deal for me, and I definitely felt safe here. And if you're unsure of where to eat, etc. the staff, manager and even the owner are more than happy... More

With the abundant good reviews and I agreed with most of them, I would like to use this platform to sing praise to the owners. It's clearly you folks have the utmost passion to run Ryokan @ Muntri Street and keeping it at its highest standard even for a 'backpacker' accommodation. First visit was a couple years ago and I...
