    Perfect location, close to bus/ferry terminal and to the street art tour too. I stayed in the capsule, my first time, and absolutely great experience. The room was really clean and toilet and shower too. So far the best hostel in Malaysia!! If I will go back to Georgetown sure I will stay here again!

    I stayed in one of the capsules. It's like a mini hotel room inside a hostel dorm. You have your own privacy but you take up less space. Downsides was there was not too much socializing in this place however the hotel has great internet speeds (something rare in Malaysia unless they use a certain provider)

    Still a good stay for me. The only hiccup is the recreation area air not cold enough. Hope when return again, all in order.

    Little outside the main areas but surrounded by street art, the Container hotel is a sterile place that lacks much community/atmosphere feeling but it makes up for it in cleanliness.

    I like this place and would stay there again. Very clean and for a hostel very private - each container dorm has a blackout blind so you are totally enclosed. This hostel is ideal for someone wanting privacy, but was rather impersonal - if you want a place where you can meet people and have some sort of atmosphere in the common areas, I´d choose somewhere else.

    No atmosphere. Although staff is very professional, but they lack a personal/human touch. They are also not very well trained with what to do and eat around the area, with the only helpful thing being able to tell me which bus heads where. But, the bed is very comfortable, and they provide a care packages which includes oral kit, towel, and a bottled water. Air-condition and Wi-Fi is also very strong!! Very near Armenian Street where you can shop for souvenirs and many good cafe around too :)

    Very Good

    Location, location, location! Clean hostel in the middle of Georgetown which is excellent! Atmosphere is non-existent as the majority of travellers were just there to sleep at night rather than meet other people. It’s a clean, well-located, basic hostel that is well-priced. Just bear in mind that there are no hostel activities nor facilities other than beds and clean toilets with good showers.
