Good place. It was really clean. Rooms are really small, not much space at all. Every bed has a small locker, a light and electric plug. You also have a little bigger locker under your bed, but not big enough for a bag. One bad thing is the system with your room key. When you enter the room you need to put your room key in a holder by the door in order to get the lights and the air con to work. It gets a bit uncomfortable when you need to switch cards. Change this system!


Above average hostel. Excellent breakfast. The only problem is the extremely tight and small 4 bed dorm.


Staff were laid back, in keeping with the surroundings but helpful and friendly. For the price, the facilities were great, comfortable and with an ample breakfast. If I come back to Penang Island then I'd like to stay here again; location is good. Thanks.


That'd be great if they find a way to solve the keycard problem. Everyone has their own keycard to unlock the door and plug it to turn on the lights and air-con. But when they leave the room, they need to get their card back from the plug. So they keep waking up others to not to leave the room with aircon or fan off. Maybe a permanent card that stays in the plug?

Great location! Amazing showers. Loved everything apart from the wifi cutting off; slow and temperamental. Staff tried their best to help, but must have been a server issue. Would definitely stay again!


It's very nice, clean and quiet and 30m away from little India. The beds are very big and comfortable! They have a tv area with a lot of good movies. I like it!


It's at a good location.

Everything is good. Provide breakfast can help you save a lot of money. Toilet is very clean and the bed is comfortable. The only problem is room is small and without window. VALUE FOR MONEY, GOOD
