The convenience store entrance is camouflage to the best kept secret in Georgetown, Super K Hostel. One night turned into two weeks! My bus dropped me off in front at 10pm and a friendly guy from the bar asked if I was looking for a place to stay. I thought, "sure, I can leave tomorrow and find somewhere nicer." We... More

The hostel is seated at a great location, just at the corner of Love Lane and Chulia Street. They offered clean room/bathroom, comfortable beds, friendly staff, a cute kitten you can play with. The air-con made the room cold, not freezing, which I really appreciated. I felt I was frozen when I stayed in another hostel in KL. There's no... More

I planned to stay here for 2 nights, ended up staying for a week whilst doing a visa run from south of Thailand. The hostel is very new & kept clean, with ridiculously comfy mattresses in the dorms. With regards to hospitality I found the staff second to none, especially hostel owner David who took the time to take myself... More

Even though the hostel doesn't really look attractive from the outside, when you go in everything else will make up for it. Employees are all simply great, happy and helpful. David, the owner makes you feel at home directly and the dorms and showers look clean and are very comfortable. If I'd go back to Penang I would definitively stay... More

This hostel was so brilliant that instead of staying for 2 days we stayed for 10. I cannot recommend it enough. It is really welcoming, and the owner, David is a total legend, who will go out of his way to make sure you enjoy your time in Penang as much as possible. Also one of the common rooms has... More

The hostel was lovely and clean. The mattress' were very comfortable and I liked you had curtains around the bed for privacy. However both dorms have very thin walls and directly opposite the hostel is a reggae bar which had very loud music until 1.30am, meaning we were unable to sleep. A bit disappointed as we had asked the staff... More

I arrived late in Penang and walked around checking out a few places and a girl stopped and asked if I was okay. She walked me next door to a store and showed me upstairs and it was great. Big rooms, very clean and really comfy mattresses. The most comfortable since leaving the UK! I liked that it was attached... More

Clean, comfortable, genuine ad professional. David, was very welcoming to me and my friends from the moment I walked in. Made sure that our stay was the best it could be. Really helped us in seeing Gerogetown by giving us good pointers and such. Great place. Highly recommend it.

The hostel is located on the main backpacker street in George Town. Nice area with a lot of opportunities to go somewhere to eat. The bed was compfi, of course the mattresses were great :) The staff is really nice aswell! What i didn't liked is, that the two rooms are directly located over a bar, and in the evening... More
