It was the first time I shared room with backpackers of different nationalities. The superb feeling of independent is overwhelming. It is a nice place to reckon because of its location right in the hot spot of Penang. It was loved by young tourists from across the globe as it rendered personal freedom with very little restriction.

I got the dormitory for eight people but I didn't imagine it to be so spacious and clean, the covers are newly washed and they provide clean bath towels for free! You don't even have to worry queuing up for baths and toilets because they have enough. The lounge is a cozy place to relax and enjoy free flowing coffee.... More

Stayed for 3 nights in female dorm. Spacious dorm, big locker for your stuff, female bathroom just down the hall with great showers. Very very clean. Lovely common room area upstairs. Bit quiet when I was there but a nice place to hang out. Good location near to all the street food action and bus stops for beaches and also... More

I took the twin room instead of the bunk beds since it costs almost the same. Nicely tucked at a corner & I hv a good view of Lebuh Chulia & Penang Street. However, the room was in the 3rd floor & its really a hassle to get to the toilets as it is situated at the 2nd & ground... More

Amazing how this place is done up so nicely even though it's just in the scene for less than 2 years. Very experienced and helpful staff, cozy and convenient beds, lovely balcony and lounge area. Good for groups!

Accommodation is usually the most vital factor taken into account whenever there is a trip. This is because after a long hot and sweaty day of travelling, one would always look forward to the comforts of a cold shower, a comfortable bed and a serene atmosphere to rejuvenate themselves. Syok at Chulia, did just that. For it's rather low price,... More

As the title speaks for itself, yes, possibly a few subtle changes to further improve what already is a beautiful and vibrant place. Firstly, as food is of paramount importance, I, on behalf of the many people who have burnt their toast, would like to suggest that the toaster in the lounge be replaced with a more functional one reason...

I went to syok with my friends on a school trip. It was a very very pleasant stay and very nice environment. Although the dorm has no door & was slightly noisy at night when people walk around, but it was a really cozy place and most of the time I wanted to just stay in the hostel. It's my... More
