As the title says 'BED BUGS' unless you want an itchy departure find somewhere else. On a plus note the atmosphere is great and the staff friendly and will direct you anywhere but please clean and sort out the bed bug problem.

There was complete privacy - each drawer had their own light and plugs. The beds were quite comfortable. The only downside is the lack of lockers....

The air conditioner has the temperature control in the room & works really well. The owner is a very funny man & I had many...

This place was really great... we stayed in a 4 bed dorm, with air con, the little pod beds worked really well and everyone had there own plug socket, lamp and curtain. Location was good, near enough to walk to everything. Atmosphere was great and drinks were pretty cheap. Not a party hostel as such, but still easy to meet...

This hostel was just perfect. A Nice spot to chill, to eat and to meet other people. You can rent a scooter to explore Penang. And we love Charlie!! He makes everybody laugh, just give it a family feeling. Ask Jim for the cardtricks.The breakfast is good, there are boiled eggs, pancakes and toast.

“I chose for the biggest dorm available, was great.”
Babetdehoon, Mar 1, 2015 | Read review
“The top bunks are a bit of hassle when moving up and down. There's not much space in the room for your bags. Therefore, you'll probably have to keep your bags on your bed bunk. If you have a heavy bag and are in the unfortunate position of getting a top bunk, you might have difficulty getting it onto your bed. The rooms above the reception are have strong wifi but you'll have to deal with noise coming from the street.”
