Tofu was a wonderful hostel, with unique concept! Loved the decorations and capsule rooms! The staff are friendly to give information on how to go to the landmarks in Georgetown. The breakfast was good, as they provided so many choices. Overall it was such a nice experience to stay here! The most memorable hostel during my trip!

I would love to return to Penang and stay at quaint and homely Tofu again! But the owners are planning to close down very soon. Thank you Lucas and Joyce for making my stay the most memorable one in Malaysia! I loved the creative decor, inspiring art, thoughtful books, and modern design - all right in the heart of the...

This hostel is on a quiet street at a great, rather central location - 15 minutes walk to the Clan Jetties; 5-10 minutes walk to Lebuh Chulia (night market and street hawker area) & Little India, and 20 minutes walk to Komtar Bus Terminal (if you want to catch a bus e.g. #401 to Sungai Nibong Bus Terminal). The beds... More

I stayed at the hostel for 3 nights in June and I must say the hostel is brilliant. First it looks good, second it is clean, real clean. The dormitory is kind of cool, it is designed with individual cabins, which gives you a fairly OK private place. The dorm has an AC and even if you don’t like AC... More

I cannot recommend this place more, amazing staff whom are attentive, friendly and passionate about their hostel, really funky dorm rooms, clean bathroom & nice common area. Well located in Georgetown (on the outer area which I liked as its away from all the noise) and really easy to find coming from the airport. You would be mad not to... More

Tofu is located at Georgetown and easily accessible from the airport. My girlfriend and I took a cheap bus ride from the airport and found the hostel with little fuss. The hostel is so close to most of the attractions within Georgetown so you can save quite a bit on transport. If you hate to walk, they rent decent bikes... More
