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...

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,...

Red Inn Court เป็น Hostel ราคาประหยัด ทำเลอยู่ใกล้สถานที่ท่องเที่ยว เดินทางง่ายมากๆ อาหารก็หากินได้ง่ายๆ พนักงานก็ช่วยตอบคำถามได้เป็นอย่างดี ข้อเสียคือ ไวไฟช้า และได้ขอพัก 4 คนพร้อมกัน 1 ห้อง แต่ต้องแยกกันนอน 3 คน และ 1 คน ทั้งๆที่ได้ request ไว้เรียบร้อยแล้ว อาหารเช้าจะเป็นขนมปังปิ้งทาแยมและผลไม้+กาแฟร้อน หรือชาร้อน น้ำเปล่าสามารถเติมได้ตลอด Red Inn Court is a budget hostel with good location.

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! The rooms are small but that isn't really an issue because everyone had two personal plugs, lockers and reading lamp. Staff are friendly and the place...

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.

Booked for 3 nights, ended up staying for 6! A really nice hostel. Stayed in the 4 bed dorm and the beds were so comfy, plus the AC was amazing and the room was kept really clean. Simple breakfast was included which was a nice bonus and everything in Georgetown in within walking distance. Great price for a great hostel!

Overall good stay with friendly staff. Rooms are small, but clean. Small light breakfast is included. Free coffee and tea all day. In a good location by little india. Main complaint is "lockers" are tiny.

Would stay here again. We stayed in the 4 bed mixed dorm and it was spotless, quiet and comfortable. It was probably the best night of sleep I've had since arriving in Asia! The shared facilities were cleaned regularly and the showers were great! Breakfast consisted of toast, fruit and black coffee. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only...

To be honest, for RM22 on weekdays and RM25 on weekends, it's not so bad. However, you need to know that WiFi is unreliable here all the time. Even when they fix it, it doesn't do the trick. Sometimes you can connect in the lobby, but most of my stay had no connection at all. staff are not very friendly....

I have stayed at Red Inn Court, George Town 5 times previously to this visit.

Dear Nigel, I am quite surprised to hear that non-guests have been showering in my outlet and I will be taking action against these culprits. I know who the Indian flower sellers from across the road are and I will be kicking up a storm with them very soon. However, I did not receive your email with this complaint, but...
