Stayed here on mid-October. It seems like the hotel only got mixed dorm room. The room was ok with air-con and so much privacy. The only thing to complain was the noisy neighbor, which seems like they were not understand in being tolerate.

The bathroom is also clean, despite being shared bathroom. It has hot shower, which kinda useless in a hot Penang whether back in October :D

The hostel has 3 wifi with excellent speed.

The breakfast was ok. We got toast and omelette. You should try their mushroom soup. It's delicious! They also serve lunch set in very reasonable price.

Since it's a hostel and bar, it can be a bit noisy at night with the loud music.

If you stay here, you must know uncle Charlie. He's a very funny and helpful staff. On our last day staying here, uncle Charlie make sure we don't miss our flight and give us very clear guidance on which bus should we take and how long will it reach the airport.

We also make friend with the bar staff named Lani. She was very sweet and have a lot of thing to tell.

Definitely gonna stay here again when we come back to Penang

Room tip: Ask for the lower bed

We stayed here after an excellent stay in the Reggae Mansion in Kuala Lumpur. Although not as nice as the Reggae Mansion in KL, we still had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms are smaller however, and there are not individual codes on each dorm, just one code to get upstairs and then you can get into any dorms once you've got through that door. It is pretty noisy as everyone congregates on the balcony outside the rooms, but has a great atmosphere if you're wanting to stay up and meet new people rather than sleep. The receptionist was incredibly unfriendly and it took us over half an hour to check in, but we found all the other staff very friendly - one man who was working there took a group of us out to a Chinese celebration in the street one night and looked after the whole group. Great location and very clean

Overall my stay here during the middle of October was solid. The mixed dorm room with great air-con, shared hot shower and included internet and breakfast for only MR28 ($9 USD). The dorm beds are literally a walled off cubicle but with a light and electric plug-ins. Note: this is a backpacker party environment! Only downside is that the ladies at the reception don't know too much about the area's attractions and do not drink at their downstairs bar - it is very expensive!

My partner and I stayed at Reggae Penang for 4 nights. Dorm rooms are exceptionally clean with ample space and so much privacy!! We found the staff incredibly friendly and hepful, the brekfast that is included is really enjoyable and ample. Very social atmosphere, communal computers and air conditioning included. Music tends to go fairly late and can be slightly disruptive if you are needing an early night, however on the whole we loved our stay here and will definitely be back!

Arrived at the hostel in late July with my brother from Kuala Lumpur. We headed to the hostel via a taxi and when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised. From the outside the hostel looked really cool, chilled and modern. Check in was a breeze, the guy on reception was very helpful and knowledgeable.
On the way to the rooms there is a serious looking security door for access to the common room and bedrooms. So you don't have to worry about the dodgy people slipping in. The common room was equipped with a decent flat screen with access to loads of channels as well as two free to use computers.
The bedrooms themselves were just as impressive, cubicle style with a curtain for added privacy and a mirrored cupboard to store your stuff. And as for the beds, best night sleep I've had in a while. Showers and toilets all clean tidy, not much to say about them.
Breakfast included was a nice addition as it was something other than toast, which is usually the standard for most hostels. Overall an excellent stay, would highly recommend if you were staying in Penang/Georgetown.

Room tip: Any room, they're all good.
