Great location with cafes and bars surrounding it. My 4-bed female dorm room had no windows, just fyi. Everything was very clean. I liked the minimalist, chic design. There didn't seem to be much socializing going on in the common area, though. Like other people have mentioned there were lots of mosquitos, so use repellant.

The receptionist in the morning is very friendly and informative unlike the one at night look unfavourable.

Nice hostel! The rooms were clean and the staff were helpful. There aren't many bathrooms, but we never had to wait for more than a couple of minutes. Great location on Love Lane- this is a really nice option for Penang!

It can be quite noisy at night but I suppose that cannot be helped as the place is located in the middle of a busy street. Everything else is perfect :)

Such a welcoming, relaxed place to stay for a few nights while on busy Penang Island. Staff were fantastic at pointing out places to go to eat, see and drink. The room we were in had a nice bed, was quiet and comfortable for it's size. We had caught an overnight train from KL and they were great in getting us into a room well before check in time. Not many showers available so often had to wait but was a great place to wait in so didn't mind. Fully recommended to anyone heading to Georgetown.

Great hostel but just two things to point out. One is that the door to the shower upstairs was broken (I spent 4 days at the hostel and it was never fixed) - that meant that there was only one shower for everybody. Also, it is nice to sit outside but the chair eats were unravelling so rather uncomfortable to sit on.
