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.

Great location in the China Town area short walk from good food places. Was in the 6 bed dorm. Room clean with plenty of lockers. Only downfall was the really creaky bunk beds. Every time someone moved the room was woken up by the creaking. Bathrooms clean and plenty of cubicles. Showers really hot and powerful! Laundry service punctual. Communal... More

It's a budget accommodation in the great location, near bus terminal and food areas. Bad thing is that it accepts the payment made by cash only. Travellers sometime don't bring much money while travelling. They prefer to pay by credit cards and cashier's check. My suggestion is it should accept credit cards.

Kimberley House is in a great location near the main shopping mall. We stayed in both the double and twin rooms. It was very clean and big rooms. It seems a very big hostel which to us felt more like a budget hotel than a place for backpackers. Would definitely recommend to others.

Though the hotel is just located at Kimberley road,but we still spent half hour to find it.Maybe the hotel can change another more eye-catching signboard.(Who want to find Kimberley House can indentify the bright-red signboard.) Kimberley House is really good location!It's just five minutes from Komtar that convenience for taking bus to Panang hill,the airport or other tour scene. In... More

Great hostel, clean (except for the wall in the common room), beautiful rooms, halls and showers. This place is very good for it's price. Only 1 major downside: the internet is not working most of the time. If you can live with that, this place is the best!

Overall a good stay but when we booked, we were not aware it was a shared bathroom or that the room didn't have a window. Pros are that the room was big and clean with both air con and fan. Good wifi also and very close to the main shopping malls in Georgetown. Would recommend staying here as it's good... More
