This budget hotel is very nice, good value and I would definitely recommend it. The location is great, very central to the action and easy to find. The rooms are clean and well appointed with air con that works well and a good mattress ( no aching back after a full nights sleep). Shared bathrooms are ok, a bit cramped... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in a room with a queen bed. Room was clean, so was bathroom, air conditioner worked and fan was super strong! Having a water refill station was also super useful. Wifi didn't work in our room (21) but worked in the main building. Did find a small bloodstain on the sheets on our last night,... More

Beautiful people running this small hotel. The receptionists as well as the cleaning ladies did their utmost to make sure we had a good stay. Everyday a fresh breakfast with lots of variety was served at no additional cost. Also free access to purified water. We slept in a slightly noisy room in the old part of the hotel, streetside....

We stayed for 3 nights and returned because of our great experience with this hostel. We were warmly welcomed and got a room right next to the street. The room was big but extremely noisy. Next day we asked for another room and got it without hesitation. Shared bathrooms were clean and had soap and shampoo. Wifi worked poorly but... More

One of the best places we have stayed. Really clean rooms and shower rooms/toilet, a nice communal feel to socialise with other guests, really helpful and kind staff, the breakfast offers the usual western food or the local dishes to try and a computer to use for free which comes in handy when travelling for a long time like us....

Stayed here 4 nights and were overwhelmed by the hospitality of the staff! We arrived in Penang around 4am and thought we'd try our luck even though check-in wasn't until midday or 2pm haha. We were told by a sleepy man to come back at 9am, however we returned again (so optimistic!) at 6am and were let in and allowed... More

We had a standard doubleroom with shared toilet and shower for a good price. Way cheaper then many of the nearby places we checked out. The room was huge and had a great bed and A/C. Clean toilet and shower. Breakfast was included and what a breakfast! There are so many options that you can't try them all on only... More
