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!

Room is clean and comfortable. Staffs is friendly and helpful. However the wooden floor is a bit noisy where people walking outside, those in the room can heard it clearly. Although damping have been done but there are still room for improvement. I would prefer the previous style of preparation of breakfast where there was a lovely lady cook warm... More

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.

Friendly staff, clean environment, located near many attractions. Very satisfied with their service. The owner of the hostel even bring us around to shop, sightseeing and eat Dim Sum. Definitely going to go back again because of their service.

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

I tried backpacker hostel in Taipei. This is my first try in Penang. The stuffs are friendly, environment is comfortable, toilet are clean. 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

The hostel has been around for a few years now and the owners have done a great job maintaining the space. It looks new, spacious and freshly renovated - very pleasant. 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
