“Clean, comfortable rooms at good prices, with helpful owner.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We spent three nights here as we explored Penang. The owner was very helpful in helping us navigate the island, showing us bus routes and different areas to explore. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The downstairs has a nice lounge area with free coffee and tea. The location is very good, steps away from bus routes and within walking distance of major areas in Georgetown. The hotel itself is quiet, located on a side street.

My sister and I traveled to cities in Malaysia and we stayed at five different hostels in total. Guest Inn Muntri is absolutely my favourite. When I walked to the place at the first time I thought it's quite far but just spent couple hours in the city , I found out that the location is very good. There are many buses to get to the hostel as well as buses to other tourist attractions. The room that I stayed has no window but clean. The staff are awesome. They are very friendly and helpful Especially Mr. Ooi :) He always approaches to guests to offer helps and information. Breakfast is nice. Common area is great because it has a very high ceiling and a pond. Totally love it !!!

Me and my partner stated here over Christmas and loved it. When you arrive the owner shows you to your room and then sits you down with a coffee and a map and shows you the points of interest and how to get around on the island. We had a shared bathroom room but the bathrooms were spotless every day and new and the rooms were also really clean and comfortable. The air con was great and the wifi was good. You get free wifi, tea and coffee and breakfast. Breakfast was bread and jam and butter or porridge. The location is really good.... There is nothing negative to say about this guest house. It is relaxing, clean, comfortable and really friendly one of the best we have stayed in. Anything the owner can help you with he will. He will arrange taxis, lend you an umbrella, give bus routes and directions and if you ask a question he doesn't know he will find out for you. The laundry service is fast and really good. a lovely little place with a great atmosphere and friendly staff.

We booked a stay at this hotel through Agoda and it was alright, just alright. The only good things are the unlimited tea and the reception staff - they were very kind and helpful with the Penang map and bus transit.

Otherwise, everything else was terrible. The room (on the bottom floor) had a musty smell and basement-like dampness and the hotel was infested with mosquitoes because the bathrooms were a breeding ground. On our last night, we had to move to a dormitory, we didn't book the double room (our fault). There were cocoons of house moths all around the beds - especially on the wall the bed was against and hanging down from the upper bunk over the bottom bunk.

Still this was one of the better hotels in the area for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor as it's quieter.

I stayed in the four bed dorm and although it was spotlessly clean and had air conditioning it was still a little bit too cramped for my liking. The whole place is really clean and the breakfast good. The staff were really friendly and helpful. A nice place in a good location in a quiet side street.

I spent 3 days in Georgtown and had a room at this place. The room was ok. No window. As I did a lot of outdoor activity it was ok. The bathroom could have been more clean as I found some old cigarette on the basin. Sheets and towels were clean.
