Owner is v friendly and helpful. Location is fantastic, bang in the middle of Little India in easy walking distance from the seafront, Chinatown and Armenian Street. Booked a private double en suite: the bathroom was a bit grimy but shower was good. Unfortunately the room was right next to the kitchen which meant being rudely awoken by early breakfasters even when wearing ear plugs. Perhaps the rooms could be better soundproofed or a sign could be put up to be respectful of sleepers!

The dorm I was staying is comfortable and the AC works well, and has a balcony with a view of “Little India” below us. The hotel is nicely located near restaurants, bars, cafe and convenient stores all within walking distance. The bunk beds are clean and the mattress provide good sleep. Skeptical at first after reading about “bed bugs” from previous reviews but was recommended by friends who have stayed recently. No regret, 5 of us staying in the the dorm and none of us got bitten. so I extended

Bed bugs in the dorm! (at least in beds 7 and 8). I would avoid this place, there are much much better places to stay in Penang.

My stay at the hostel was ok. It was just not really a nice place to hang out since there's no common room and there's only one 8bed dorm and other than that just private rooms so you won't meet a lot of people. The staff was polite but nothing more than that. I found the bathroom and showers not too clean and they were really hot. Other than that it's a good place to sleep since the aircon works really well and i haven't seen any unwanted animals.

This was my second time staying at Cocoa Mews and both times have yielded great stays! The location is prime. Little India, pretty much the heart of Georgetown. Many of the major bus routes are on the adjacent street, Lebuh Chulia (takes you to Kek Lo Si Temple, Batu Ferrenghi, Penang National Park). Hostel staff extremely friendly, available for most of the day and ready to give recommendations. Have met many great people at this hostel as well. Good air-con, key cards and lockers. Great place!

BEDBUGS!! When I arrived, I was told the dorm was 'under renovation' and was put in another room. Then, I found out why. The place is crawling with bedbugs. When I told the owner, he said it was 'just the dorm' even though they were in my room too. They weren't taking proper measures to get rid of them, just airing out the mattresses. They really shouldn't be renting out the rooms at all. The whole place is filthy, and the attitude of the owner was really bad considering the problem. Avoid.

Basic accommodation. It would have been ok, but me and my friend got bed bugs in a dorm room. Apparently, it's not the first time in the same beds recenly, so they didn't clean the room properly. After first night we got an upgrade to a small private room but we noticed some bed bug stains there too. The guy at the reception said they hadn't had any problems with bed bugs in that room, so we decided to stay only to find more bites and a bed bug on bed. Other places are just few extra ringgits.
