The guest house is located in the Core Heritage Zone and easily accessible on foot (bicycle rental available). Walking distance to Ferry/Bus Terminal. I've stayed for 3 nights in the 4 bedded female dorm. As I got the upper bunk there's privacy despite sharing with 3 other girls. Bed is very sturdy so when someone moves you wouldn't feel it....

Hopeless,Hopeless & More Hopeless.Here are few points which you should know or consider before opting to this hotel: 1) Location mentioned by Hotels.com is just one of their main branches which then allocate other rooms of Red Inn Court which are at least 10 Min’s walk away. 2) We can find several Red Inn Court’s in the Love Lane and...

This hostel is located in a great area. It is very clean and comfortable. The staff is helpful. We gave them our laundry to be done and didn't realize we needed to tell them is was a rush job because we needed it back that night. They were good enough to call the laundromat to make sure we would get... More

It's at the heart of the heritage Georgetown. It's affordable, accessible and clean. Right at its back is Little India. It's near Kapitan Keling Mosque. There are food houses nearby so as the bus stop. I stayed in the four-bedroom dorm for 4 days at the first floor. The bed's comfy. The hot shower's working well. I only had a... More

It's clean, simple room setup for twin single bed, 500 m walk to Esplanade and nearby Little India, staircase is a bit steep and narrow to walk up and down . Shared toilets but they are clean. Free breakfast provided.

It's an old charming building in the middle of Georgetown with modern amenities .. The rooms are small but clean. The staff are courteous but somewhat aloof and one of the receptionists is mathematically challenged or tried to swindle a few bucks on two different occasions. There is complimentary tea and coffee in the public area around the clock and... More

As many have said these mattresses are a welcomed treat in comparison to the thin strips of sponge you get elsewhere. The wifi is excellent and breakfast is awesome. Little India is right next door with plenty of eateries, all very unique and tasty! Also make sure you try cafe little angel, a 2 minute walk if you turn right... More
