Syok is located at the start of Lorong Chulia, at the junction with Jalan penang. After i arrived at the airport and take bus 401 and stop at the other end of lorong chulia, it took me 10mins to get here. usually i will look around for more choices, but i fell in love straight away.
The people in this place is wonderful. Boon, checked me in, took me to my bed, showed me around, told me to get some rest, and when i am ready, he gave me a 30mins brief of penang and things to see, food to eat. its like a mini history class. Karen, the owner, me to this great burger place 'marshalls' and i ended up having 2 burgers one shot. Tim whom i met the day before i left, told me to grab some meat at sky hotel.
Jalan penang have the best chendol and assam laksa in penang, 5mins walk
red garden have a huge variety of choices of food, 3mins walk
mugshot, a place to check out, 5mins walk
Chinahouse, MUST check out place, 15mins walk
bus stop that serves most buses along jalan penang, 4mins walk
Clean, very clean, so clean i didn't realised i am in a hostel.
comfy beds, huge space, nice aircon, great shower area with rainshower, and wifi is working all around the hostel.
my 2 other roommates, one russian-german lady and one guy from the states agree that this is one of the best hostels we have stayed in. we even commented that it felt more like a hotel and we were quite worried to be dressed poorly.
i will stay back in this place everytime i visit penang!
