Checked in with friends. Great service. Auntie and the rest of the staff is very accommodating. They speak english pretty well. Facility is clean. Very near to everyplace you'll need (central market, china town, merdeka square). More than worth the price.

My friend and I stayed for 1 night at the Explorers Guesthouse from our trip in Penang. We stayed in a 4-female dorm room that was comfortable. All our basic needs were taken care of: central location, clean toilets, wifi in the lobby, lockers, helpful staff, basic breakfast. Maybe it's just because we stayed at a superb hostel back in...

Stayed there for 8 days. The staff helped me with all my questions and gave me some tips. The place is super clean! The shared bathroom is also pretty decent! It's very near the station too! The place is hard to find at first. Roamed around the streets in the middle of the night for ~30min looking for this guesthouse.

Good location, close to china town. Near a couple small bars. Air con, however in the dorm room, there are no windows which is a bit of a downer. Can't wake up to natural light and the traffic can be noisy (but that's city life!). But value for money with breakfast in the morning. Wifi only really works on ground... More
