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)

My sister recommended Guest Inn Muntri for our Penang trip as she has stayed there before and had a really good experience. So I did not hesitate to place a booking. However, when we arrived this time, things have changed a little. The receptionist was a woman with an attitude. She greeted us reluctantly when we arrived and asked if... More

I was checking a few different rooms in Georgetown before I got to this guesthouse and this was by far the cleanest room and the best value for my money I could find. I stayed in a private room with a/c and my own bathroom and the room was quite basic, but clean. There is free tea & coffee all... More

Well... I had the private double bed room with no window. It was stuffy, small and there was a smell. Picture in agoda wasn't the same as the actual room (wide angle lens eyyy??!) tricked and disappointed. really. Cheap stay? Yes. Friendly reception? Yes.

The guy on reception is fantastic and one of the most helpful I encountered in Malaysia. The bed is not the most comfortable however the facilities are clean and decent enough. The WiFi is good but only available in communal spaces. The laundry service was great and overall a decent stay was had.
