Drippin' Dragon Hostel


#96 of 157 Specialty lodging in Penang Island
Located at 32 Jalan Hutton , we have utilised a gem of a heritage building (150 years old), in the heart of George Town’s UNESCO World Heritage to bring you a new and exciting place to stay! Following the heritage feel, we have kept the building as close to its historical set up as possible - don’t expect a 5 star set up but do expect lots of fun - we letting our 'gritty charm.'

Sorry to leave a negative review. But I was not happy at all with my staying here (3 night in October). PROS: - The location is excellent. - (Most of) the staff is friendly. - Breakfast included. - Pub crawls (if you like them, not my thing when I backpack) - Common area. CONS: - Extremely cold rooms (and I am rarely cold). To the point of being uncomfortable. Especially for people who sleep at the bottom of the bunk beds. I slept very bad because of this. - Overall, full of annoying travellers. The kind of that likes to get smashed with alcohol at night. And that has no respect for people trying to sleep. People coming and going at night, shouting in the common area, slamming doors ... until late hours.

Literally the worst hostel in 8 years of traveling. Pool was green, bathrooms were disgusting(used condom and ball of hair in one stall for two days), bar was crap and so were the volunteers. People were drunk and passed out laying on chairs. My shoes were stolen and the owner literally did not care at all. Two other people things were stolen from in the two horrible days I was there. Breakfast was bread. There were apparently other options to add but no one there to make them. Place is disgusting, everything sucked.

Shower and toilets need to be refurbished ASAP. The place need some more deep cleaning as well as the swimming pool-the water was oily. Staff at the pool bar is nice and friendly, on the other hand at the reception they seem like they are doing you a favour. No gas cooker or microwave available for guests-just a fridge.

Staff give amazing service and are all very friendly! We actually became good friends with majority of them! Dorms are clean and spacious with air con. Bathroom is cleaned regularly. There is a common area where you can watch tv and chill out and there is a good size pool with a pool bar which is a great social place to meet people! There is a bar crawl most nights which the staff organise to get people together. We went 3 times and had a great time!

It is a cheap hostel located in the centre of Georgetown. It is a just few minutes walk from where the happenings are and also walking distance to the famous murals f the town. The hostel has amazing staff members who know how to socialize. They have enough shower space. The aircon was leaking when we stayed there and my bed was next to it that my stuff got wet. I hope they have sorted this out. Overall, it is a nice hostel to meet other travellers and explore the town.
