Located in the old town which close to everything. I stayed in the so called "luxury" room with private shower. Bed is comfortable and bathroom is very clean. Breakfast is simple but nice. Staffs are very helpful. Front desk is not available 24 hours but early checkout can be easily arranged by simply let them when you checked in.

Me & my partner stayed here for 2 nights. It is cheap and it is in a great place to explore Georgetown. There are just a few things which let it down.. There are only 3 showers/toilets for 12 rooms upstairs so they are often full and get dirty quickly, the breakfast is very limited and was often cold, the... More

Dear Jessica, Thank you for your review and addressed your concerns observed during your stay. Apart from the 3 bathrooms and 3 toilets (separate) on the first floor, we also have additional ones on the ground floor. We should have a sign on the wall indicating there are more bathrooms on the ground floor (these are located at the back... More

Great hostel. To be fair, all of the hostels in Penang seemed to be fairly similar, but this one was great. Well laid out communal areas that meant we met a load of cool people and hung out with the staff as well. The showers are some of the best I've had on my travels.

Stayed here the first night and was very happy with the cleanliness of the hotel. The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. Perfect place to meet others and have great conversation. Quiet location and lots of great ambience with all the beautiful art to see! I would definitely stay here again!

I ended up staying here for just over a week. The hostel was so clean and comfy that at times it felt a little like a hotel. The location is right in the heart of Georgetown, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was awesome. The only thing that lets it down a tiny bit is that the... More

The hostel is located a stone's throw away from love lane and in the heart of of the heritage zone. Just catch the CAT(free bus) from KOMTAR and ask them to drop you off near the... More

The facilities were clean, the staff was so helpful and kind, location was good but the breakfast was not healthy. There was no fruit or vegetables. I feel bad for vegetarians that stay there. Even got up earlier the next day thinking maybe I missed the fruit. Not hard to have some bananas in a bowl or Cucumbers sliced up.
