You can pay a very cheap price to enjoy a very relaxing and artistic environment in Ryokan Muntri. The owner are so friendly and you can make friends with other roomates as well. The cleanliness is undeniably perfect. Try it out!! :)

Felt relax and truly liked this place...! Clean and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. You need to get used to the co ed toilet cum bathroom. It was closed to street art and my favourite steamboat place. Will certainly stay in this place in my next return.

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

Love this hostel. They have few female dorms upstairs and mix gender dorms(with friends) with 4 beds and 6 beds that are double decker, there's private room for friends who don't want to share the same room with strangers but the price is slightly more expensive compared to upstairs' dorms. The rooms are clean and neat, I love how the...
