We had a fairly pleasant stay at Kimberley House, the decor is a bit strange and you kind of feel like you're intruding in a big old house! The shared bathroom was absolutely fine, clean, modern, good showers and never had to wait to have a shower. The biggest let down for me was the bedroom, the bed was hard... More

Book a single private room for 1 night. Aircond provided was a portable aircond which blew mostly hot air. Woke up in the morning perspiring. The aircond was also beeping every 30-40 minutes the entire night. As for the bathroom, there were only hangers for clothes and towels but no hooks. The unavailability of hooks and space (to place shampoo... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the standard room. Positives: spacious and comfortable room which provides both fan and a/c, dressing table and night lights. Plenty of shared bathrooms, 5 to be exact which are clean and the shower head has great water pressure. Dont have to queue to use to the bathrooms too. Oh, and they provide free coffee or... More

The toilet was dirty and the room is small. I rented a 6-female dormitory and it was smelly and dirty. No slippers for toilet and services was poor. Not going to come back. The location is nice because it was near most main roads. No breakfast.

The decor of this place is very nice. The double rooms are spacious and comfortable (the single room are not; more about that later). The bathrooms are plenty in number and reasonably clean. The location is superb - very close to some of the best street food and restaurants in Georgetown. Having said that, the service of hostel staff leaves... More

Loved it! To be sure, the location cannot be beat. Close to all the convenient and main attractions. Near to the shopping complex and bus station. Walking distance to many famous local food haunt. The staff were courteous friendly and attentive. They helped me to get into my room early which was great after a red eye flight. Clean and... More

I'm a budget traveler so I usually book based on price and regret it when I arrive. I finally found my way to Kimberley Street and thought about turning around and going home. During the day it's not an impressive sight. Closed storefronts and back alleys; not especially appealing. However I went to my guest house which was very charming... More

Had a great time in Penang and our stay at Kimberly House. Great food right next to the place others are just a street away. Near free bus, and you can walk and explore the heritage part of Georgetown. We initially thought shared toilet and bath would be difficult ..but its not. Everything was clean and it went well. Only... More
