Compared to 4 or 5 other places I have stayed in panang it is good. I had a single room on second floor I will say it was most probably the smallest room I have stayed in but I was happy. Air con, wifi in room, felt really secure, clean, my room was really quiet at night, very helpful staff... More

There are only two good things about this place. The staff were very friendly and gave great tips about where to go. The location is also brilliant, right in the heart of Little India with some amazing restaurants nearby. Everything else was awful. My boyfriend and I paid for an "executive" private room. Essentially this means you get a private... More

Great location, walking distance to everything. Staff are extremely friendly and willing to help with lots of local knowledge and recommendations. Comfy dorm beds, lockers in room, free water, free wifi, free tea and clean bathrooms. Only downside is there isn't a communal social area but for the price you pay you really couldn't ask for more! Spend an afternoon... More

I can only imagine the terrible places that the folks giving this place high marks have stayed. It was one the worst of our 4 months in Asia. The only redeeming quality was the free walking map. Do not recommend. Loud, cramped room, threadbare sheets, rude staff, dirty bathroom. One night was rough.

Pros: The staff - fantastic! All three men on reception were welcoming, chatty and incredibly helpful, advising us on how to get around, what to see, where to eat and how to get to butterworth for free. The location - right in the heart of little India, you can get everywhere really easily. The cons: Room - dingy with no... More

We found Cocoa Mews by accident (401 bus from Nibong bus station) and were pleasantly surprised at the price and VERY helpful staff! Pros - heart of Little India, amazing staff, clean (but small) rooms Cons- if you're a light sleeper (we're not) the noise from the street and people walking/talking might disturb you

We stayed here in a private room for the few nights we stayed in Georgetown and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if we were to return. The location of the hostel is brilliant - right in the heart of little India, the most charming part of town in my opinion. The rooms are small and basic with good (perhaps... More

I stayed 3 nights at cocoa mews, 2 in a dorm and 1 on a single room. The dorm was a good size and had lockers for valuables. The showers were next door and hot water all the time. Everything was clean. A couple more hooks for things in the showers would have been helpful but there was plenty of... More

The location of this hotel is a short walk from the jetty and is located right in Little India. The staff here as others have mentioned are so helpful with everything. We spent our time in a standard room with shared toilets. The room and shared bathroom were both clean and tidy. Overall, this hotel is within walking distance to... More
