Very nice and helpful staff. Very friendly. Wifi is weak inside the room. Aircon is working but needs repair/improvement. Location is really good. Complimentary coffee is quite good. Toilet is always wet. Can still be improved.

We did not book this hostel but just turned up. We got a double room with a/c for Rn60 ($18) and it was good value. There are share bathrooms which were kept really clean. They said the WiFi might not work in the room but would be fine in the common area. It was actually good in the room and... More

I booked this guesthouse for 2 nights based on the good reviews that it had on the booking site. Don't get me wrong... I knew that I was booking a backpacker hostel and not a 3 star hotel... but, I still ended up disappointed. I paid in full online yet, on arrival, the girl at check-in wanted me to pay... More

The location is great location, and the price was okay and looks renovated. But the room was very small, staff not very helpful, slow wifi connection. If I had to come back to Georgetown, I would not stay there again.

Actually we were booking to stay in 33 stewart houze, located in the same road, but due to Lunar chinese New Year (the owner was chinese, and his family and relatives come to Penang to celebrating the New year) we were transferred to Muntri Guesthouse. Very clean and tidy, helpful receptionist, and due to the strategic location so many tourist... More

We got ourself a late check in - about 2am and it was swift. For foreign traveler if you check in late I suggest getting a local SIM card to call - standby receptionist phone number is on the door. Overall the property is pleasant, nice ambiance and plenty of tables and seats for you to chill out. We got... More

The 4 bed dorm is quite small, just only had a small space for you to sit around. There’s only a mirror in the room, had a small personal locker, personal plug but does not have personal head lamp. For mattress and pillow, it is quite thin. Nevertheless the room is clean though doesn't have window For downstairs, they only... More

It's a friendly and convenient place for travellers on a tight budget (same price range than the other backpacker hotel in the area). Rooms and shared utilities are clean. Breakfast is really basic but there is a free flow of coffee and tea... and a pool in the common area! The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is really... More

This guesthouse was generally clean and cheap (those are the two positives). But the walls are really thin (you can definitely hear your neighbors), and the rooms are tiny and smell a bit musty. I was bitten by two mosquitoes in the room, which kept me up all night. The room was so basic that mine did not even have... More

I have been stayed here for only 2 nights but I love it. I suggest you should consider this when you come to Penang.Because not only the services is great but also it's so friendly and they're the live map of Penang ( the manager was born & live here, he know everything at Penang and he's so friendly, too)
