I stayed a few days in Kimberley House and all in all, I found it okay, even though I may not go back there again. What I like best about it is the helpful staff. I had to stay up late every night to work, and they just gave me instructions on where to turn off the light and all.... More

Simple & quite small for 6 pax dorm. The room has air-cond and fan. But the cons is you can hear sounds/voices easily from people walking outside your room. So make sure you bring your ear-plug if you want sleep well. Wifi in the room is good and fast,. The shared bathroom is well cleaned. The common area is so... More

This is a beautiful, modern, bright and very clean hostel. My husband and I stayed in a double room, it was really nicely decorated, spacious with both air-con and a fan. There was also a mirror, desk and chair provided. Bed was really comfortable and lovely fluffy white towels provided. Shared bathroom and shower facilities were extremely clean, and you... More

We liked this guesthouse. The staff were very helpful and let us use their phone etc at no extra coat. The reception area has a cool design, and was nicely decorated for Christmas whilst we were there. The shared bathroom area was clean and the showers had good pressure (not exactly warm though!) The location is also good - just... More

Booked a single room for myself. Located very conveniently at the city’s centre, major attractions are just a stone’s throw away. I love the decor of the place, gives off an unique rustic charm. I was pleasantly how clean and big the rooms are. The staff are friendly and helpful! People loved talking to the lady boss, she was so... More

Stayed one night in a private with shared bathroom. Friendly staff, good location for bus terminal, but more of a walk to the main part of the old town. Amazing decor and layout inside really beautiful.

During my trip to Penang, Malaysia, I stayed at Kimberley House for some days. My room was a single private room without a window. The hostel is close to the historical city center of Georgetown. I enjoyed staying in at Kimberley House as the room was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly and willing to answer questions and give advise.... More

Major downside to this place is a lack of windows in the rooms, however these are probably some of the most spacious rooms you'll ever find for this price. The whole hostel was beautifully decorated and had a lot of character, especially the main entrance and reception area, as well as being spotlessly clean. Not the closest of hostels to... More

Double rooms with no windows but lots of space. Could here neighbours and especially people walking along hallway (made them sound like elephants). Second time we stayed the room was really really dusty and hairy. Luckily it was only for one night. First time we stayed we also had a single room which had a monstrous and loud air conditioner...
