“Great staff and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

The staff here are so helpful and they spoke good English. They organise washing at a good price, taxi's and bus collection.
Stayed in a 6 person dorm which was very clean with a plug and light per bed.
Location was good in easy walking of the jetty, street art, red gardens (food night market) and cheong fatt tze mansion

Nice design budget place, high quality furnitures and amenities, good breakfast and a lot of sightseeing spots around. The only drawback was noisy timber floor upstairs, footsteps can be heard whenever there's people walk through.

We arrived in Penang at a busy time, and this wasn't our first choice of accommodation, but almost everything was booked up. We found a room at ryokan, and ended up staying an extra 2 more days than planned. Very pleasant budget place, very comfortable room and nice breakfast.

Friendly staff, very clean rooms and bathroom, but very noisy. When people walk or talk in the corridor you can hear everything! The bed was comfortable, however the 4 beds female dorm is very tigny. Good value though!

It's not your fault but please restrict guest from running across the corridor. especially during night time. Besides that, all are excellent. Toilets are clean. lobby are comfortable. friendly and amiable receptionist. Maybe could expand the loft for night activities. Could refer to Singgahsana Sarawak rooftop design.
