I landed in Penang not knowing what to expect and where yo or not to stay.
The previous day I'd spent accidentally in a low budget room in the old town. It's was ok and I guess for the money very reasonable. The following day I met a couple whilst on Penang Hill who recent I go meet Steven at Pedal Inn.
What a great recommendation straight from meeting Steven his friendliness and enthusiasm to help you get the most from your visit to Penang was a welcome to my previous day visiting many other guest houses in the area.
My budget was 3 times higher than that of Pedal Inn but the place was new, very clean,good location and Stevens personality sold it to me. So I took room to myself.
There are a number of small dormitory type rooms 4 or 6 people with shared bathroom facilities and a double room if available. Good AC, lockable storage, clean showers and bathroom all be it shared. The shared facilities were better and cleaner than most the other double rooms with on suite I had visited the day before for 5 times the price.
Steven gave me some advice for a day trip on a scooter and it was advice well received and it made my trip to Penang a memorable one. Also how to get around the city and advice to take bus instead of taxi saving me 15 usd the same as a nights stay.
The guesthouse is geared up for cyclists whether a family holiday or serious touring group and a neighboring bike shop for hire or repairs or buy some new gear is very useful.
If you want somewhere clean, friendly, well located and affordable then this is your place.
Ill be back, next time with my bike.
