Great atmosphere and staff. Location is supremely central. Only point to pick on is that the noise isolation is pretty bad! Bring some ear plugs if you're gonna stay here!

Had a wonderful stay. All the staff here are very friendly and helpful and the rooms and bathrooms were always very clean. Loved the idea of having the self contained pods!

It's the 2nd time I have stayed here and both times they were very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to the lady at reception that lent me a pair of shoes when mine broke :)

I was expecting a slightly better hotel for the price but it was overall good. Positives- The decoration was really nice and the bar and reception staff were very friendly. Close to getting pretty much anywhere in Georgetown. A few restaurants and corner shops nearby. Easy to get a taxi (although I asked the reception to book me one and she said to just go to the street to find one which wasn't very helpful) Negatives- Breakfast left much to be desired... a strange mix of asian and british break

One of the best places I have ever stayed in! Right in the heart of Georgetown within walking distance of 2 big malls which have everything you could need including cinema and restaurants. The bar downstairs is handy and has pool table serves food all day and there's seeting outside a balcony upstairs to sit and chill on of an evening! Bus takes you to the beech in 35min. Best thing about this place was the staff! In particular Charlie who will keep you entertained

Good location, but the bus doesn't stop by the 7 eleven as they mention on the directions. I needed to walk a lot when I arrived. The bed smells like Pesticids strongly. The comun area upstairs is the balcony and people sit and talk right by the door the whole night, which makes it hard to sleep. I didn't feel safe at all with all the noise and so close to outside. Breakfast was very poor, but served by a nice old man.

Only thing that let this place down was the numerous leaks in the roof, nothing appeared to be done about it other than mopping up the wet floor. Otherwise staff are lovely and friendly, beds are clean and comfortable and location is excellent.

Great facilities and cheap drinks!

Very nice owner, everyone seemed to love him. A nice place to hang out on the verandah or at the bar. It is easy to meet people, too. I liked the idea of the pods, you had a little bit of privacy in the big dorms. There were however no kitchen facilities at all, not even hot water or a toaster.


77%

The breakfast provided is too basic, only bread, butter, Jam, and a very cheap coffee.
