YES YES YES YES YES YES YES!!! :D We hope to having and seeing you real soon!Roommates Penang Guesthouse is housed in an 18th century refurbished ‘Straits Eclectic’ prewar shop lot centrally located within the core Heritage Zone of Georgetown, Penang. We are within walking distance to famous hawker food stalls like Chulia Street, Kimberly Street, shopping malls like Komtar, Prangin Mall and 1st Avenue as well as morning markets like Chowrasta Market. All the ‘MUST SEE’ Heritage attractions within Penang are located around the guesthouse and can be easily explored by foot or by bicycle. We also offer bicycles for rent for the convenience of our guests. Roommates Penang is definitely the ‘smallest’, ‘newest’ and ‘funnest’ (we made this word up!) guesthouse on the island. Although the exterior and certain sections of the guesthouse still retains its prewar features, we did cracked our brains to come up with a simplistic yet modern interior so that you can fully enjoy an open concept guesthouse that only has a land space of 530 ft2.

I stayed two nights and it was good value. My dorm bed was comfortable and spacious, also curtained off. However, the blanket I was provided with was noticeably dirty. Nice free breakfast and facilities. Close to local bars and restaurants. I would recommend this hostel

The hostel is cosy, in an old house but well cared for. Location is quiet but close to bars, cafés and markets. Beds are nice, everyone has her own lights and electricity. The only thing that irritated me was the weird smell - got used to it after a while though.
