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.

Great location, easy walking to lots of goods spots in Georgetown, but we found it didn't really live up to the online pictures and the entertainment from the night market next door was very noisy until early hours of the morning. Staff were always friendly and breakfast was okay. Basically it was fine for what we paid but I wouldn't... More

Superb rooms, very clean and nice. It was the best hostel for the money. The bathrooms are big and great. Definitely worth of staying here. Also food court is right next door. Staff are very nice and helpful in every case.
