We stayed here for four nights, since it was the cheapest room we found in that area. Turned out to be a good choice, since we felt very comfortable at that place. The room (ac) and breakfast was very basic, but more than one can expect for the money. But what we enjoyed most was talking to the owner. We... More

The rooms are extremely basic: mattress in the floor, old bed sheets, dusty fan, , doors close with padlock... When I walked in the back some mice were munching on the crumbs left in the toaster.... Mmmm.... I know it must be hard to keep rodents and bugs away in Penang but still... The shared bathroom is not great either!...... More

Please don't stay at this dirty place. I heared about the BED BUGS, and checked the room myself; I did not find them at day light. While checking the owner saw me and insisted on that there were none. I woke up like this. So THERE ARE BAD BUGS, and the owner won't help you with that, he was very... More

The owner is quixotic. Some say he's rude and they are not wrong about him. However, if you're ready to see through his unfriendly attitude you will find a helpful, funny and loving man. I returned to this hostel everytime I was in George Town. Once, I arrived with 40 degree celcius fever, and he immediately took care of me.... More

Never go to this hostel ever, the owner is aware of the bedbugs and tries to come off nice. We asked for a refund because obviously we weren't going to stay after finding them, but he refused to acknowledge they were actually bedbugs even after we showed him!! He also refused to give us a refund for the night! Horrible... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the love lane inn guesthouse in Georgetown for one night, during Chinese New Year. We paid 50 ringgit for the room, which is almost $20 Canadian. There was no air conditioning, only a fan. The apparently clean sheets had gross curly black hairs all over them, and the mattresses looked like they were falling... More

maybe bugs, but who cares. Two different kinds of jam and free and friendly information is everything you need. Stay there more than a night and you will love the owner. If not, move!! If you're looking for luxury, not the right place. And if you can't handle the directness and the dark humor of the owner its not the... More

I had the following interaction with the owner, who was pursuing what can only be described as a very odd business strategy: "Would it be possible for me to see the room before I book?" "No you cannot see. You can only see picture." "Umm..." "Bye bye! No waste your time, no waste my time. Bye bye!"

The place is the cheapest one in Penang. Believe me, I checked, double checked and triple checked. I did find a couple places with roughly the same prices, but all of those were a bit further away from the city center. So, there is that. And there is the fact that I met a lot of amazing people in this... More
