This hostel would basically get 7/10 in every department. The beds where nice but the bedding was very small meaning you get cold during the night. The shower was nice but only one of them worked. The wifi was good but it would randomly cut out, there is free wifi across the town which is nice. The staff where very... More

Fab location in the heart of Little India. Didn't take me long to walk anywhere to the touristy locations around Georgetown. Close to bus stops. Fun, knowledgeable staff - ask them where the best places are to eat. All their recommendations turned out to be great (especially the place where I was the only westerner in the restaurant). My first... More

Great little place in the middle of Little India. People working there are extremely helpful. Provide you on sound advice on what to see and eat. Rooms are alright. A/C, no window, TV with DVD player and a range of DVD's to watch, good wifi as well. Clean bathrooms and kitchen area. Great location, a lot of good restaurants within... More

In the heart of Chinatown and great staff! We had many food and transport options nearby and it was a great place to crash after a day of exploring the city. It is a heritage house so rooms are small and walls are thin. It can get noisy so it depends on your luck on the kind of guest you're... More

This place was ranked high on a different platform. My girlfriend and I were excited to find this place for a good deal. We booked a double room with ensuite bathroom. After we checked in, we were brought to our room. It didn't have a window and smelled quite muggy. Thus, I asked for a different room (one with a... More

It was a good place. Good location and had an enjoyable visit. The walls are thin, and the rooms are small but that is the price one pays for staying in a heritage house. It was next to the bus stop and could see food shops galore. All i would complain about that could be fixed is the net was... More

Nice place with a great staff! The room was clean and had a tv and air conditioning! Really good value for the money. And the most delicious Indian restaurant in Malayasia is right on the corner, Kapitan. Definitely would stay again.

Had the single room which just fits a single bed. Be warned. I was travelling as a backpacker so not having a kitchen was a let down. No atmosphere at all here. It is clean although everything is really dated. The guy at reception named Howie is the absolute best! So much advice about Georgetown and such a great helpful... More

This hostel presents a bit of a Catch 22 situation. Pros: - Location: Little India is in the heart of Georgetown. Can walk all around this area and if you fancy going further afield the bus stop is literally 2-5min walk from the hostel. Great food nearby - Bedroom: comfy bed, fully functional and quiet A/C - Owners: v friendly... More

Great little place right next to Little India that was just the ticket for me after a long journey from Sumatra. The guy on the desk was incredibly helpful, giving me maps and giving me personal recommendations of where and what to eat for dinner. Room was comfy and I slept like a rock, even if my blanket was too... More
