Great value for money”

Very good value for money. Stayed in a private room with shared bathroom. Large, spacious room with comfortable bed and large windows. Shared bathrooms were clean with great water pressure. Toast and Jams included for breakfast each morning and tea and coffee available throughout the day. Had an area downstairs where you can sit or socialise. This is not a fancy place so don’t expect a 5* hotel but It is definitely a fantastic budget option if you want a private room. The only negative is that the room we stayed in faced a main road so was noisy but they do address this and offer earplugs.

Nice clean little inn to come back for. ”

It would be good if they install water heaters for the bathroom, and replace the spoilt hair dryers. If u don't mind the traffic blaring outside for those street facing rooms, then it is a good place to come back for. As a light sleeper, I personally would want to ask for a quieter room.

Very good vibes and environment ”

I have incredible experienced staying here and I stayed here few times already. Last time I Went there during Ramadhan, omg the vibes are great I would never trade my experience over there. The receptionist one Indonesian lady. Well she's the one I guess she is the asset of this place. She really changed this place from hostel to a home, from stranger to family, from Penang to heart warming experience. Even the other guest, other travellers who come from all over the world. They have really good vibes. No smelly drunk backpackers here. Bed also comfy, Toilet and bathroom are plenty. But is old building so is not soundproof you can here people walking or sometime snoring from other room sometimes. I hope they will add laundry or drying area. Location wise is great walking distance to most of the famous places. Plus Penang have free bus and bus come on time. its good enough for you to wonder around. You can take free bus to the ferry jetty. ah.. gugel la takkan semua nak bagi free. TQ

A nice stay”

The hostel was nicely laid out, with a communal kitchen/lounge downstairs, then bathrooms and dorms on the upper levels. Everything was red, black and industrial, which gave a cool vibe. The dorms were broken up into groups of 4 beds which also felt more cosy/private/secure.

Convenient”

I'm here to answer the question I was most worried about. 1. Hygiene ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 2. Service ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 3. Transportation and proximity to tourist attractions ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4. Items a. Must bring shampoo - only body wash is available there b. There is a hair dryer c. There is a water heater d. The toilet is very close to the room e. There is no toilet paper in the toilet, you need to bring your own (you can ask the front desk, I bought it myself) f. There are two sockets on the bed, but they are covered by the bedside table g. There is no peculiar smell on the bed h. The air conditioning is very cold and won't get hot i. The door lock is safe It's very convenient, comfortable, and cheap. I highly recommend this hostel! Not disappointed!
