We were supposed to stay at Red Inn Court, but they had a problem with the rooms so switcher our booking to here which was just a couple of minutes walk away and after having seen the place was in a better location. The room was quite small, but the air con was good. The shared bathroom facilities were a... More

We stayed here for two nights and it was a fairly good experience. We did walk-in in the early afternoon and we got a private room at a discount price (72MR). The room is small with no windows, and only one charging plug, but AC works good and the bed is very comfortable. The first night was very quiet, but... More

We didn't stay here, but our hostel (Red Inn 56) suggested we come here to book a bus to KL. Big mistake! First of all, we had to pay 8 extra ringit for their "services." We booked the 1:30pm bus at 12:15pm and were told that we had to wait to be picked up at 1pm and that we didn't... More

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
