Located in a nice, quiet, historic alley at the edge of the old town, Ryokan provides guests with a good alternative to the typical backpacker haunt where cost trumps comfort. The location provides easy access to the historic town, there is great street food just meters away in two directions, and Jimmy Choo's original cobbler-master is located nearby. Ryokan injects...

I spent 3 nights at this hostel, and it's probably one of the best ones I've stayed at on my travels, the staff were extremely friendly, even if I didn't get my deposit back, which was my fault as I didn't notify them that I would be leaving so early in the morning. It's location is really good too I... More

I am very particular with my room, so I reserved the 4 bed dorm and convert it into a private room. Definitely cheaper than a hotel, plus it's in Georgetown! Room was very nice, clean, bed was comfortable with a/c. Bathroom was fine with heated water. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Even helped me pay my parking ticket! During... More

We arrived from an overland trip from Koh Lanta around 2230 in the evening and were dropped at Love Lane. The hostel was easy to find although even shops located very close at Muntri Street didn't know about. The welcome was warm although they wanted to see cash very quickly. We slept in a 4 bed doorm. The beds are... More

Pros : It's clean, located in a strategic location and staff were pretty friendly. Comfy beds. Cons : Rooms had little to no sound insulation, if someone walked across the floor, you could hear it clearly. If someone talked, you could also hear what they are talking about in the room. During my stay there were a bunch of inconsiderate... More

We stayed here for only one rushed night but the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, the room was clean, the bed was very comfortable and the hostel was well-equipped with games, iPads and bicycles. Great location too. Would definitely return!

Even though is just a 1 night stayed at Ryokan but I had a fun experience over there. I'm lucky to be invited to join Ryokan 1st year anniversary. Highly recommended to all backpackers.

I have been staying in this hostel twice each time I travel to Penang to see my dentist for my new braces. My first time travel to Penang was somewhere March 2012 which I booked the room via online. I booked a sharing room but managed to upgrade to the suite on the next day. The staff are very polite... More
