I stayed here last year right on New Year's Eve with 4 of my friends. We had previously booked out a 4-bed dorm, but we had a late joiner to the group. When we asked if it was possible to add an extra mattress, we were prepared to be told "no" (since it's a busy hoilday), but they surprised us and somehow made it work!
The location is quite good if you are interested in historical and cultural sites, and the room and showers were stylish in a minimal way, and very clean. The only thing was the wooden floor of the hallway -- other people staying at the time didn't seem to understand that you don't stomp the ground when you walk (it's not cement!) and they were a little loud going back and forth from their rooms. But that's not something the hostel staff can control...
The place itself is really good, the staff were friendly and accomodating, and I would definitely go back if I return to Penang!
