I really liked the pod idea it was good, however i was savaged by bedbugs here and no one apologised. The aircon was also leaking in ALL of the rooms and flooded part of the room and soaked luggage. I did miss my ferry and then lose my second ticket and the lady on reception was very helpful with that. Also they play no reggae, just really pap music.
Friendly, helpful staff, great atmosphere, you won't regret it :)

The pod style bunk beds with curtains gives a lot of privacy, and the storage space can hold a medium size backpack. The atmosphere is great if your looking to meet people, drink and party all night. If you're looking for a quiet and relaxed vacation this might not be the place for you.
Reggae hostel is a great place to stay. Staff were friendly, showers and toilets were always clean and the pod arrangement in the dorms gives that extra bit of privacy that alot of hostels don't offer. Location was perfect, located just off the main street where there are many bars, a five minute walk to the night food market and a fifteen minute walk to the mall. Good wifi and great sofa area to chill and watch a movie. Would thoroughly reccomend.
Advantage: - Good design - Mixed dorm with privacy - location Disadvantage: - Staffs to be somewhat abrupt and not very helpful for the most part, the receptionist didn't even raise her head to answer our questions,just pointed at the signboard when we requested to check in. - leaking near the sofa upstairs - hairs on bed and some kind like nails or skin tissues in the cubicle - wifi is weak - toilet door easily to open from outside,someone carelessly open door when my friend showering
Not really a party hostel, they just pump loud party tunes.. But it's a good hostel with everything you need and the dorms are awesome.
Reggae Penang is such a lovely hostel, even if you stay in 12 bed mixed dorm you still have your own privacy. the bathroom really clean which is good for women like me, the Indian girl at the receptionist desk soooo helpful (she explained all the direction from one site to another site in Penang) and i love the breakfast menu :) keep up the good work guys!
Liked the day staff especially very friendly an helpful made my stay very pleasant

This is a really sociable hostel with decent outside areas and a bar, perfect for meeting other travellers. The location is excellent, Penang is a beautiful place and everything is within walking distance for you to see. There are lots of lively bars within a 2 minute walk, the rooms are clean and there are plenty of showers and toilets. The staff were great as well, really friendly!
Reggae is well located and the rooms are decent (nice pod style beds in my four bed dorm). However I found the staff to be somewhat abrupt and not very helpful for the most part. Also the hostel is a self-styled "party hostel" which translates to music blaring under your room until after 2am and a gaudy bar downstairs. Wouldn't stay again as there are much better options in Georgetown.
