Stayed here during a weekend trip to George Town while travelling alone.

Having come in straight off the ferry (5.30 KL Train) I found this place at around 6.30 am. The staff were extremely friendly, even first thing in the morning. Let me take a shower and set me up with a nice room. Normal check in is at 2pm but they were very kind enough to let me check in immediately.... More

Booked into the Flash Back hostel for 1 night before our flight from Penang back to KL. Located on the outskirt of Little India near Georgetown, it is tucked away along a quiet street.
