A very nice design and clean hostel. Beside the basic facilities, it also provide the facilities such as reading corner and relaxing corner. And most importantly, the Wifi is provided free. Thus, I could access internet to search the inofrmation about Penang. Breakfast is provided every morning, a very good experience over this hostel.

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.
