Passed by Ryokan Muntri the last time I was in Penang and it seemed pleasant and clean from the outside so decided to book a 4-bed dorm all to ourself for 1 night. You can't beat the location, it's on a quiet street yet just behind a busier Lebuh Chulia with all Georgetown attractions (murals and food) within walking distance. Checking in and out were smooth. The room itself is comfortable with blanket & towel provided (deposit of RM25 required) and aircond perfect for the hot hot weather, it even got a bit too cold for us that night. However, do note that the room may be a bit too small for some people especially for those not used to sharing space with strangers. Overall the whole place is clean but the toilets and showers are less than satisfactory for me - unpleasant stench coming from the toilet and cleanliness-wise for both spaces really could've been better. The water pressure at the sink was also low, but the next morning there was a sign saying there was some piping issue so it could've been due to that. Overall, definitely value for money esp. if u're only looking for a bed to sleep on (1/5 of the price paid for accommodation just opposite) but I wouldn't mind paying a few ringgit more if that's what it takes to get a cleaner toilet & shower :)
