The hostel has a good location, walking distance from bars and restaurants and blue mansion. Is very spacious and clean hostel, rooms are big and female only areas are secure and properly separated. Staff was ok, they helped ua booking the ferry to Langkawi. They don't have any activities inside the hostel so no ambience at all. My main No with this hostel, is the "sound prof"system. U can listen to every step from the upper levels and the Muslim ceremonies at 6 am!

Awesome hostel in a great location. Air con didn't work one night but they moved us with no problems at all and were very apologetic. Also helped with the ferry from Penang to Langkawi.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Really friendly and helpful staff, great facilities - large lockers, an awesome top floor lounge, clean and fantastic semi-outdoor shower/toilet facilities, perfect location in the heart of Georgetown. Only minor problem is that it can be a little noisy due it being on the main road intersection, and curtain instead of door partitioning the dorm rooms from the others.

Clean, comfortable, quiet, working Wifi, breakfast (cereals and toast) included, free tea and coffee the whole day. Staff was very helpful. I had to pay for a locker in the lobby area but nobody told me before and their websites advertises that lockers are all free - be aware of that.
