Very cute and small homestay close to the UNESCO city center. Walking distance is around 15-20min or take a Grab. AC is in the room, shared bathroom.
They provide you informations like the street art map or if you wanna have some Thai food they have a restaurant next door.

We stayed here for 2 nights, we love the place so much. There were 8 of us and we occupied 3 rooms. The place is clean and well decorated. Each room has it own theme colour and air conditioning rooms. It's offered free WiFi, kitchen is equipped with fridge, electric kettle and water dispenser. We also like to hang out at the living room listening to the radio.

The place is located at Jalan Phuah Hin Leong quite near to the town. Opposite the homestay is a cafe that sell yummy waffle homemade ice-cream and green tea latte.

Mr Loh the runner is very friendly and helpful.

Highly recommended for singles, couples and families.

The house is well decorate and 5 rooms. It's maintain the old authentic feel yet the room is bit modern, come with free wifi and kitchen is fully equipped.
The down side is lack of packing space and the living room do not have aircon.

I stayed here for a couple night during my second trip to Penang. The hotel is located in one of the most famous street in Georgetown, you can easily roam around the street and have some drinks or food. They offer a really affordable price, the breakfast is pretty good, the room and bathrooms are clean, and they provide free water and towel for all guests.
One thing that really bothered me was the noise the other guest upstairs made when walking, they have wood flooring upstairs, so bring some headphone or earbuds to help you sleep better.

Booked a single room for 3 nights, attach with bathroom but missing a toilet bowl -_-
There is water heater and a washing basin in the bath room, hair and body shampoo and fresh towel (to change daily if required) provided so there is definately no issue cleaning oneself but the only problem is it's really just an bathroom, so to do your 'business', you will still need to use the toilet at the back end of the house.

The shared toilet was very smelly, but it got better after i flush with some shampoo. And the aircon starts to drip water on day 1 but no issue from day 2 onwards.

Room come with aircon, fans, TV, lights and even a table light, considered really nice for a budget hotel. I paid RM70 per night but according the business owner, price may increase during peak period.

Beside the toilet issue, the other problem is same as most budget hotel, really bad sound proof,you can hear every stomp and laugher if the people staying next door or upstairs does not behave.

Location is quite good, take bus 103 and you can reach Gurney plaza in 15mins. There is a a few hawker center nearby, and some nicer restaurant if you like to spend money for nicer atmosphere.

Breakfast is included but as it's the same everyday (fried vegatarian bee hoon, kaya toast and some jelly or fruits), so i guess you can give a try and eat something else when you feel like it.

Mr. Koh the owner and the sister are super helpful We reach around evening and he drop by to pass us the keys and to show us around the house and provide plenty of recomendations.

Overall i would say it's totally worth the price and it's a not bad experince aside from some of the small glitches.
