This is definitely the best youth hostel I've ever stayed at. It has an excellent location, spotlessly clean facilities and great staff who are most helpful and friendly. The rooftop lounge is pretty nice, with TV, Radio, PC and some game facilities. And their buffet breakfast (milk, coffee, tea, toast, cereal) is pretty nice too. I bought my bus ticket at the hostel at very reasonable price, much cheaper than the agency nearby charged.
However, as some of the rooms are by the street, it can get a little noisy sometimes, which might be an issue to people with sleeping problems. But to me, it's totally OK.
I will definitely recommend this hostel to my friends and will stay there again if I go back to Penang.
