I think it is a good hostel. It near food park. But noisy from food park. Toilet isn't clean. Breakfast is good such as toast coffee tea fruit. Wifii is slow.

Unfortunately they had mixed up our booking to start with, then after we had agreed to extend they didn't pass on that information. We then got an angry wake up call from a member of staff trying to brake our door down. Very loud outside so remember to bring ear plugs. Location is probably the best thing about the red Inn but Georgetown is so small anything would be a good location


The Red Inn Cabana is a mosquito habitat meaning the building breeds it's own mosquitos. When there is enough water pressure for a shower it's cold water. When the internet WiFi was working it could barely handle email. These items are basic for today's traveler. Many guests were complaining. I cut my visit short and left.


The Red Inn is a beautiful big building , me and my mum had a lovely stay for 4 nights. It is close enough to the heart of Georgetown , which is a lovely place to walk around - so many interesting things to stumble upon. Staff were friendly , wifi worked, breakfast was yummy , rooms were big , a happy hostel experience!
