Just an average stay here. I was put in a 2 bed 'dorm' room, which was very tiny and a bit awkward only having one other person in the room! But the bed was quite comfortable and there is a strong air con. Not much space in the room for bags though. Bathroom is fine, but no hot water. Breakfast... More

First the hostel seemed great. Online it was about 15 ringit or something. I didn't book so when I came in they said it was 30 ringit. I told them about the online thing, but I didn't have any internet. He said 'no problem we can do 28'. When I got up to my dorm I met 3 others: all... More

The location was great. The staff were pleasant. We booked the double room, en suite with TV. The room was very small but useable. Unfortunately the bathroom floor was permanently wet because the shower leaked constantly when not in use and the drainage was behind the toilet, far from the shower. So going to the loo in the middle of... More

I stayed for four nights, including my birthday, and I can't imagine a better place to stay in during my visit in Penang. - The location is right in the heart of the core zone. All the cultural places are within a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel. I left way early for all the free tours I joined, so... More

The location of the hostel is perfect, just between little India and the Penang museum. Many places to eat around the hostel. The big mall and the bus station Komtar are within a 15 minutes walking distance. The airconditioned and fanned room (double room) was very nice (very light and clean) although the attached bathroom was kind of mouldy. The... More

Locating this place was simply awful. TripAdvisor has no offline map for Georgetown, so we were relying on screenshots of the accommodation's location from here and Hostelworld. It is not at all where it was supposed to be, nor was it on any of the surrounding streets in Little India. Despairing, and on the verge of collapse from an illness,... More

I stayed in a four bed dorm room, with breakfast of toast and fruit included and tea and coffee all day. Really well priced and the beds are super comfy with TWO pillows included!

Perfect location right near Little India. The rooms are nice and spacious with your own plug and lantern. The breakfast is very basic but you get also fruit that is nice to have as an option. All day coffee and tea for free and they have a nice area to sit down and just relax.
