We took a taxi from Penang International Airport to the homestay. The check in procedure was easy. The manager told us that they just moved into this new place less than a week.

“Floor-rooms have thin walls which, for short-stayers, may not be an issue. But if you're staying longer than a week, try asking for higher-floor rooms (nicer, less noise, more spacious).”
