This guesthouse is really well located on Love Lane close to everything. The staff is really nice and helpful. I was in a 3 bed dorm and the beds are really confortable with enough space for privacy and they each have their private light and power socket. The only downside is that it can be noisy if you have a... More

We stayed for 3 nights in the central hostel. In staying in a hostel instead of a hotel we were expecting a bit more atmosphere in the common area but there was absolutely nothing going on here social wise so if you are a solo traveller hoping to meet people go elsewhere. Saying that even though there was nothing going... More

Stayed here for one night. I booked a 4 bed room and upon entering the room is presentable. However, the pillow is so smelly. Toilet is under maintenance. The room has one socket to charge the phone. Not recommended. Please bring extension wire. No wifi in the room. Over all, NOT GOOD !!!! DISAPPOINTED!!!

We were put in a windowless room, with the toilet and shower located downstairs in the corridor. This made for some slightly awkward walks back in a towel. The room was clean and the beds comfortable, and the air con worked well. The location was good and close to bars and restaurants. The receptionist sold us tickets to the hop... More

I stayed in the Inn (in one of the three, the one furthest down in Love Lane), this weekend and it saved my trip. My wallet was stolen (money and cards) on Friday evening and all banking institutions (including Western Union) were closed for the weekend and I had to find something cheap for the weekend. Red Inn Heritage served... More

Love Lane is a great location and is close by to a lot of market stalls (little India) or Campbell street. The guest house is ok, our room wasn't great as we didn't have a window and the toilet is down the corridor but the bed itself was comfy enough and the aircon was good. The free breakfast was ok...

Myself and my friend booked the Red Inn Heritage for 4 nights in Penang after seeing quite good reviews about the place... I can only think the good reviews were talking about a different hostel. First thing to say is there are about 3 Red Inn hostels on this one road so make sure you definitely have the right one... More

I only book for my friend, not for my own. By the time we reach the hotel it's already 3am.. There's no one in the reception so i guess you will need to check in before 12am.. Price is cheap and includes breakfast as well. Worth the price. Design is simply classic and i really like the living room design... More
