Stayed in a female dorm for two nights. Room was relatively big and clean, though would appreciate better lighting in the rooms. Bed was much bigger than expected and comfortable too. Towels provided, and were changed every morning (appreciated!) Only downside is the walls tend to be thin and you can hear not only people walking along the corridors, but... More

Dear Pancakemarmalade, Thanks for the review. Just for future reference, you can request for hairdryer at the front desk as it is easier for us to keep track of the whereabout. If you are in our private rooms, we have hairdryers in all. Glad you enjoyed your stay. BT Lee & team More

Pleasant hostel. It was clean and quiet. In a great location. Right in the heart of the UNESCO old town. Lots of cute and yummy cafes around. Helpful staff. Breakfast is more than just your typical hostel toast and cereal. However atmosphere doesn't facilitate a very social environment.

I came here with a group of friends, so we didn't get a chance to share room with someone that we don't know but I guess it is not a bad idea to come again next time and try to share room with someone else. However, keep in mind that shared room is pretty small and it will not fit... More

Ryokan hostel's location is great: right in the heart of Georgetown yet away from the noise. It is an efficiently run hostel, clean rooms, nice breakfast, polite staffs, etc. But I did notice the quality has gone down since I last stayed there 2 years ago. The bed sheet I slept in had blood stains; the toilets weren't as clean... More

The rooms here are very clean and the lockers are large which is great. The breakfast is large and the location is perfect. Overall I really liked Ryokan Muntri, but when I wanted to book an extra night I had to book it online for a cheaper price. Even though I was staying right there and talking to the receptionist...

In the heart of Georgetown. Walking distance to everywhere; nasi kandar, cendol, etc. Located @ the quiet street but accessible by car and bike. Good vibe, great environment and cozy place. A must stay hostel! And they provide breakfast too!

This is a nice place with great location in the middle of Georgetown, and the place is clean and breakfast is good. But the wifi could be slow sometimes. And the staff are super nice. I had a good time here.
