This was a nice hostel, close to major attractions in Penang. The main area was very dimly lit, and the computers did not work; however the rooms were clean, with airconditioning, and a daily fruit breakfast. I thought that it was good value and would stay here again.

This is an cool little hostel with a great location. Michael and Jimmy were awesome. So much knowledge. And to have Jimmy as our taxi driver was an experience. Only downside is the fans don't keep the room all that cool at night.

I travelled with 10 other friends and we were split into 3 rooms because they couldn't accommodate us all in the dorm room. Two of my friends were upgraded to a 2 person bedroom with aircon but had to transfer the next morning to the dorm. The other four of my friends were transferred to the other Red Inn hotel... More

Lots of places are call RED something and this has two locations on the same street. The air condition two bunk room for four has a pull down full size cabinet built into each headboard. It would be great if Red Inn would install a simple latch so one could use their own padlock to secure their valuables. The shop... More

Lovely staff, can't do enough for you. Really care about your personal safety and Jimmy the owner/manager is quite a character if you get the chance to have him taxi you about. Good location, quiet, super clean bathrooms, aircon rooms. Every time I used the shower I felt like it had just been cleaned! Nice wee place and cheaper for... More

I stayed here because my hostel of choice (Roommates, which is excellent) was fully booked and am glad I only had to stay 1 night. I slept in the 16 bed dorm that was spacious and clean-ish, though it could have used a deep clean for sure. The beds are made from metal and most of the bunk beds squeak... More

I was told about this place by a guy I met in a bar in Kuala Lumpur and I must say I am happy I followed his advice, I cannot say a bad thing about this place even though it's priced a little higher than most in the budget travel category. I feel that you get what you pay. Location... More

Our stay was okay- the buidling itself is beautiful and the facilities are good but the dorm rooms have no lockers and there is no safety deposit at reception even though the spec says there is, so you end up carrying around all your valuables which is not ideal! When I asked the lady about this I was told the... More
