dont stay here. Not only was it nasty, but the owner (or employee) didn't care at all about anyone's needs. The sheets were dirty, I was woken up multiple times in the night, and at 6:30 in the morning the owner and a guest were yelling at eachother right outside my room. Pay 50 cents extra and treat yourself to... More

There is not much more to add really. a filthy toilet, just one filthy shower, complementary breakfast (coffee and toast) and they have the cheek to ask you to wash your mug (in the only sink in the place) but have no washing liquid. The staff seemed quite friendly. If you have to stay here, may I suggest you wash... More

We stayed there as a couple in one of the private rooms. The room was basic and could have a makeover but the sheets were clean and the AC worked well. We had not booked ahead, instead we checked the room before we decided to stay which I definitly recommend to everybody. Negative were the toilets and showers which were... More

I would rate this place as horrible if it wasn't the cheapest place in Georgetown. Because of the price I have to rate is as poor only. It is the cheapest place around, but for only MR2 more you can get so much better! I was on a visa run and was suppose to take me only 1 night and... More

We stumbled upon this hostel after a 12 hour bus ride and being dumped off on the main street. The price was cheap for a private room, so we decided to stay for the night. The hostel is very basic, the bathroom/shower were horrible (we waited until we checked in somewhere else to shower/brush our teeth). The lighting is dim... More

Before checking in they would not allow inspection of the rooms. This should have been a bad sign but I booked anyway. The rooms were not great but bearable. The bathrooms were not pleasant at all. Also, the manager was rude and even agressive when answering queries such as "where can I charge my phone?" If you are after a... More

The location is perfect, it's cheap, and the staff were friendly, honest, and helpful. If you want somewhere cheap and you don't mind roughing it a bit, this is the place. I would recommend it for those backpacking.

There is only one place I stay when I'm in Panang. This is the cheapest place bar none in gorge town and then people jump on trip adviser and complain about a lack of luxury. Actually I have stayed in far more basic accommodation than this. Love Lane has TV room, lounge area, free Wifi that actually works, free breakfast... More
