The interior of the hotel is all wooden furnished which is not exactly bad. The room is quite decent and comfy, the public area is also spacious. The only catch is that it's location is right beside the red garden food court. The parking itself poses a great problem although on their website they say parking is available but it... More

Arrived here with a great impression on the entrance. Very cozy and warm and just a few minutes walking distance to chill-out/hang-out bars attractions and hawkers. However, room was a little exaggerated from the Website booking photos and description. Kinda disappointed when I entered the room as it was kinda worn-out and has this stuffy smell. I do understand that... More

I would say think twice if you want a comfort stay in Penang, it was a bad experience, once we arrived our room (Superior Family Shared Bathroom) the floor was sticky as it requires us to take off our shoes before entering into the 'hotel' and there was a few mosquitoes around, the sheets aren't as clean and the windows...

It's my first time staying in this kind of budget inn. Of course it is different from the hotels that i stayed in before this. I only want to talk about the toilets and washrooms. It is not like in the hotels, where you have toilet in your room. One has to walk out of the room (just a short... More

Well the title says it all! The stay was comfort and if you don't mind sharing bathroom, this place is perfect! Situated just right beside Chocolate Boutique, parking may be a little troublesome cz during peak season tourists would come by and visit the Chocolate Boutique (actually come to think of it, Penang is forever in peak season, esp weekends)....

Not bad for sharing a bathroom (kept pretty clean) and nice little communal area. Good location and nice Filipino man on the reception! Noisy bar next door so be aware if your a light sleeper!! Breakfast was average. Wifi okay. Air con good!

Comfort stay with very clean room. It is inside the Penang heritage area, therefore, it is convenient to walk around to access the activities, area and cafe. Not really have parking lot available at night due to it is open parking area to nearby restaurant.

The hostel is very clean and smart. The receptionist was quite rude. Didn't really help or want to help to be honest. At night, it is very noisy from the red garden food court next door. Goes on till 3am and it is very loud.
