Dorm was perfectly clean with adjustable air conditioned. Staff was very friendly and helpful with directions. Location is central with only a 5 minutes walk from ferry terminal. Wifi is only limited to the foyer not at the rooms. However, Foyer and toilet though considerably clean, are ridden with mosquitoes.

Friendly team member! They shared a few recommendation for food and place to visit. But the shower room is not quite clean. Room is small but has comfortable bed and strong air-condition. Location is good. Overall experience was fine.

Kinda disappointed on their breakfast because they provide the 3 in 1 hot drinks only. However I like this place so much because it's quite comfortable and clean accommodation. The hair dryer is limited. We have collect it at the counter and return after use.

After we walked down every full hostel on love lane, we ended up here. The staff was very friendly and the room looked nice. The bed however, was terrible.. unless you like springs in your matrasses. I still feel like skippy..... After one night we moved to another hostel. Besides that..Although there are signs in the hostel that anyone must... More

It's a hostel, with good prices, great location, air conditioning, and friendly service. Really the only downside are the ultra thin walls, which lets in noise like they were made of paper. We had a private double room, and it served us well. It was small but clean and the air conditioner was powerful, keeping us comfortable in the heat.... More

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.

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
