We decided to stay at YMCA in Penang, and we're glad we did. Not only it was affordable, but it was clean and the staff were amazing. They were prompt in everything. The room is rather spartan, but then it's nice.

Arrived and were given our key ..room on the third floor next to the lift. Think because we arrived late, they gave us the most noisy room! Every time the lift was used, the... More

Especially good if you are arriving by Air Asia bus. The bus stops about 5 min walk to YMCA, so no need for taxi. There are couple convenience stores and... More

##Good## Location: Even through it is not near any tourist attractions or shopping centers or CBDs, it is in a convenient location. Because it is in the walking distance from KL Sentral Station, you can take a public transportation to those places. ##So-So## Service: The staffs are kind and helpful. Cleanliness: the room and the bathroom are acceptable clean. Breakfast:... More

Great location opposite the KL Sentral Station. Rooms are very basic with OK beds. Basic complimentary breakfast provided. Affordable at 80 Ringgit/ day. Stay here only if u have a connecting flight or just want a place to sleep.
