This was one of the better hostels I have stayed in as I have traveled around the world. The building was British ex colonial with a huge entrance where you can sit for breakfast, watch TV or talk with friends. Walking through to the rooms there is a small pond with fish. In the back there is a computer room... More

Decorated with Chinese traditional furniture. Nice staff, and excellent location. 10 minutes walk to Komtar where the airport bus 401 stops. Plenty if local food stalls within 5 mins walk and the major attractions are short walk as well.The area is quiet. The facilities includes drink machine, all-day coffee, iron, wifi, hairdryer and more.

I got myself a single bedded room. I had trouble sleeping for the night as the on the floor air conditioning unit was really noisy, felt like i am sleeping in an aeroplane cabin. Everything else was fine, but there could be rooms for improvement.

Muntri House is located near Love Lane on the quieter Muntri Street and in a great location for anyone looking to explore Georgetown. An interesting old building, it has not been renovated to quite the standard of similar hotels in the area but for the price is well worth considering. Beware the thin walls, spongy hallway 'carpet' and few shared... More

The double room was small with a bed and nothing else. We had to ask for a blanket, and towels. We booked the room online and no one mentioned the free breakfast at check in so we missed it the first morning and weren't even offered coffee. The toilets were ok but bugs everywhere, and wifi wasn't great. But the... More

Clean and comfy room, the vintage vibe interior upon entering the place makes you feel like going back in time. The room I stayed in was spacious, clean, and comfy as well. The toilets are clean and there's a free PC for you to use as well in the lounge area. The staff at the reception should have been more... More

Upon reaching the guesthouse, we were at once delighted with the interiors and the cozy vintage vibe that the reception area gave us. We booked for 2 connecting double bed rooms (with air-conditioners but no adjacent bathroom). There were five of us. And since there were no extra beds to be added to the rooms, the staff proposed that one... More

Lovely decorated arty chinese-y building. It would have been an acceptable ok place to stay, Unfortunately on the first night one of our friends was getting dripped on from the ceiling in her sleep. Our opinion of the hostel swiftly changed when we were sitting in the nice computer room avoiding the monsoon and the horrible smell slowly crept across... More
