I can only leave a 100% review for this more than awesome hostel. The owners, a couple, and Tori are more of friends than just hosts. They know a lot about Georgetown and Penang in general and do not hesitate helping you with all things imaginable.
This hostel somehow lacks a bit on social life maybe because the common areas are not really well equipped. It's not the best value for money in my opinion but nevertheless it's conveniently located and you can use the pool from the bar next door.
I first found out about BED STATION Hostel through a friend who recommended staying there. Getting there is pretty easy as it's located directly around the corner of the skytrain station. The hostel itself is pretty new and pretty cool designed. Dorms are equipped with big lockers (bring your own padlock!) and every bed has a curtain, lamp and power outlets. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available for free all day. Only con - breakfast is not the best.
As almost every hostel from the St. Christopher's chain this is best value for money as well as social meltingpoint all in one. The staff was more than helpful, even more so because the accidentially removed my belongings from the room. Sorting things out for me in a more than perfect way - so this is by far no point to leave a bad review but more leave an even better one!
I can't help but say that this is not the type of hostel I personally prefer staying it. For me it is pretty boring and more of a place where you want to stay when you are searching for quietness or a family friendly environment.
Being the only hostel in Delft, I hadno other choice than going to Jorplace. But i won't regret it. Even though it'd been very busy as I arrived (large group arrived 5 mins before), I had been helped with my luggage and everything. The only two problems are, that a three-storeyed bunkbed without props on the third storey is a bit dangerous and that there a way the less electrical sockets. But even though I'll definitely have a look at the atm being refurbished bar when coming to Delft again :)
The hostel itself is not that easy to be found as said in the description. The beds are of a good quality. Bedroom-problem No.1: way the less electric sockets. The breakfast is really good, and a lot. Unlike other hostels, this one doesn't have a bar at command, which is a bit sad I think. This lack makes it a bit more complicated to meet new lads at the hostel. All in all it's a good one. But still there are things that could be made better.
De kamers zijn echt leuk (eigen douche, veel ruimte) maar het is geen Hostel voor jongeren. Misschien zou het beter zijn als je er met vrienden bent want alleen is het echt niet gezellig. De ontbijt daarentegen was de beste die ik er ooit in een Hostel had gegeten.
Very nice and familiar atmosphere. Had been sleeping in the Board-Room. The room was furnished really nicely but still it's a bit difficult with sharing the electrical sockets. All in all recommendable and worth a stay. ps: big thanks to Samual and his friends, best barkeeper and worker ever :)
