The Guest House is very central, nice walking distance from pretty much everything in George Town. The room was clean with an AC block. (I was in a single room). The common bathroom are very clean as well. Lots of street food right out the hostel in the evening. Yummy!

Comfortablr. Cooperative staff. Clean rooms. Staff level of English was good. Location is 5 min walk frm arts and also main bus station. If you are coming frm ferry to here then taxi drivers might not use metrr and ask u 15 RM. i paid 12 and realise that it was worth 8.

This place offers basic rooms for an ok price. The walls are very thin and you can hear every noise. Coffee and tea facilities are good and it is very central. Staff is ok but not over friendly. The shared bathrooms are ok.

If you are looking for budget accomodation, Kimberley House is a good choice for you, it located at Kimberley Street (at GeorgeTown) which is also walking distance to Komtar. There are a lot of local food stall at night time at Kimberley Street. They provide TV and desktop at living area, and you can use it without charge.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Good size rooms, good air con/ fans, good showers/toilets and very good location BUT we had a (well wrapped) half eaten chocolate bar in our bag and the next morning there was ants all over our bag. And even when someone is lightly walking in the upstairs hall way it sounds like they are... More

I got a great deal here, but it would have been worth paying a little more to stay in comfort. The beds squeak but are more comfortable than most, and my room had AC and a fan, which is unheard of in Asian hostels. There is no kitchen and not much of a common area, but they have about five...

I stayed only for a night. You get more than what you pay for. The hotel is just a few blocks away from Komtar (the main public transportation hub), making it very convenient for travelers who use public transport. They staffs were friendly. You can make your own coffee or tea at the reception anytime. It's free! I booked a... More
