I tried backpacker hostel in Taipei. This is my first try in Penang. The stuffs are friendly, environment is comfortable, toilet are clean. Location is very strategic, with 5 minutes walking distance you can reach those famous local food, cafe, public transport, etc. I love their breakfast because they served roti canai, one of our famous local food in Malaysia....

Stayed for a week whilst in Penang and it was a nice hostel with good facilities. The dorm was four person with a little light and locker per person which was nice and the room was a good size. The downstairs area had drinks available with a good TV area to chill in, was an enjoyable stay
