The airconditionned dorms are ok and the location very good, making it the ideal place if you just need to sleep for the night. Its main clientele is made of chinese backpackers who often speak little english making it harder to socialize. Wifi doesn't reach in some dorms, too few showers and toilets. Staff is very nice and helpful.

It was my second time now in Penang and I was looking to stay closer to the famous downtown Georgetown area than before. I started googling and checking the various options and find this lovely inn. Parallel to the famous Lebuha Chulia Street and truly a gem. The staff super helpful with any information I was looking for, whether to... More

So you're coming to Georgetown and looking for a place to stay... Guest Inn might be a little hard to find, but you'll be glad you did. Located adjacent to Love Lane, this converted shophouse offers dorms and private rooms. The rooms are pretty bare bone and only have one plug, so if you're looking to charge multiple devices, bring... More

We stayed three nights and found this guesthouse to be a good value. Like many guesthouses of this type in George Town, the walls are thin and the shared bathrooms are not in the most excellent condition. Especially if you get a room near the lobby, you may want earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The rooms are very... More

We stayed here one night. Staff is helpful, speaks english and location is great. However the room (single bedroom) was one with no windows and right next to the common bathrooms. No windows means absolutely no ventilation. so we had a choice: to suffocate or put the A/C on. A/C does provide relief, but this unit literally sounded like jet... More

This is a basic, budget-friendly place. You certainly get what you pay for and so our expectations were low. Eoi was welcoming and friendly upon arrival, giving us a map and tips about places to visit and how to use the public transport. There are rooms with a private bath available, though these were booked during our stay so we... More

Good central location and a short walk to some sights and a CAT bus stop. Room and bathroom clean. Staff were very helpful and accommodating. For a short stay in the interesting part of Georgetown that does not cost much this is recommended.

The staff Uncle Eoi and Hey and the housekeeper are extremely friendly and informative and there are always someone to talk to. The rooms are enough for a good sleep and with adequate toilet facilities. It is also nice to have water available at any time for FREE.

Cute old but renovated house with clean rooms and super nice staff who will help out wherever possible. I always respect good customer service! It is located close to everything in town and some REALLY good Chinese food and tandoori shops (like Capitan!) Free: wifi, breakfast, 24-hr tea/coffee, towels and linen - what more can you ask for at this... More
