I have stayed here every time when I visit Georgetown, I wouldn't go anywhere else. I always feel welcome, safe and homely here. Lynn is super lovely and is always putting safety of guests (while in, and out of the guest-house) a priority. A beautiful, well furnished building, the rooms are a bit on the small side - but the...

This place is a disaster. A dirty, stinking room (dirty carpet, bathroom in tragical condition - it s safer not to take a shower at all than to take it, old, demolished furniture). This place is hopeless, budget conditions do not justify filth. No window, door looks like it were about to fall out (no security). We arrived there very... More

This is my first experience with hostel. I stayed in 4-bed room, the room isn't large but clean. Free breakfast available everymorning and I love the jams. The atmosphere at Red Inn was impressed on me, the guests sang and played guitar together in the afternoon. But please have slippers for bathroom and wifi was a bit slow.

Stayed in a 20-bed room (without AC) for 4 nights. It was hot when I was trying to sleep, but since the window was opened (in fact I believe it's always opened) it got better since it's in the middle of the night and I could feel the night breeze. But please buy a mosquito repellent if you can. WiFi... More

The dorm room we stayed was very big with some people even staying on mattresses on the floor and the room was also quite hot as there was no aircon (although I think they were about to change that). But the beds were very comfy and the provided tea and coffee as well as toast was good especially when on... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in a 4 bed dorm with A/C. The living room is nice with a big couch and flat screen to watch movies. Breakfast was very good: Toast, butter, jams, watermelon, fried noddles and Roti Canai. Also coffee and tea all day long. The place was clean, including the bathrooms. The staff is a bit... More

This place tries to sell you something else online : the room did not match at all the pictures. We booked a room with private bathroom. It was smaller than expected, did not have a window and the bathroom was really really small, like showering in a 50 square cm space squeezed between the sink and and the toilet. No... More

It was a nice and condusive place for me, good location as you walk to the heritage sights, bars, food stores and also has a bus station right in front of the street. The staffs are very helpful. There is a Movie lounge with couple of sofas playing all the Block busters(24/7), a resting corner with tables and sofas that... More

We stayed for 4 nights (bit of a mistake) at the Red Inn Heritage and although the common room was nice, the staff were unhelpful, the a/c dripped on the bed and we spent most of our time out of the place. The room was small and not clean. They do however have great jet hot showers, although the hot... More
