From the start I felt extremely welcome by all the staff and guests. There is an instantly warm environment. It's quiet possibly one of... More

It was a toss up between this hostel and another for our stay in Penang, and I'm so glad we chose to stay here. It was in a perfect location, close to everything but still tucked away enough that we weren't awake all night with noise, and a new conversion meant everything was cleaned to a high standard and beds...

Stayed here for one night in a 4 bed dorm. Rooms are spacious and clean, with good aircon. Showers and toilets were clean and there is a cosy rooftop terrace. The guy that worked there seemed a bit odd and didn't know a thing about Penang. The breakfast is very basic and they also state to only take one piece... More

This is a new hostel in Georgetown, so although there is a restaurant advertised, it isn't completed yet. Please bare this in mind when you book this hostel. That being said, this hostel didn't disappoint us. The bunk beds are very comfortable and very sturdy. The hostel is very clean, tidy and modern. Each guest gets their own locker, with... More

Made a booking there after reading some reviews about the hostel. I'm glad to have made a right choice. It is located in the heart of the city. Right in the core zone of Georgetown, which makes it easier to do the sightseeing. The first floor that suppose to be a cafe is still under renovation when I got there.... More

Stayed at this hostel for a few nights. It's a nice clean hostel in a good location in Georgetown so based on that I can recommend it to anybody. What lets it down is the staff, there was one girl working here but it was very hard to locate her when I wanted to ask her something, and the breakfast... More

Located in the heart of Georgetown, Clockwise hostel offers a very homely stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and air-conditioned. The staff is very friendly, and you also get to see a lot of artwork in the neighbourhood and in the hostel itself. Highly recommended to budget travellers.
