    Everything was clean and the common space was great. I honestly don’t understand why the previous reviews were so bad. I would definitely visit again.

    Basic facilities and room, bed were hard to sleep on. It was quiet when we stayed but the staff were fun and pretty much made the hostel

    This hostel is really good if you want somewhere a little more social. They have happy hour specials along with free drinks on your first nights stay. Most of the staff were very friendly and helpful with the exception of one man that clearly did not know what he was doing (for everything we asked him). The hostel was rather dirty. When I arrived there was tree bark or some type of wood chips on my bed and bugs all over.

    This hostel had a bit of a weird vibe about it - it was said to be a party hostel and there was loud blaring music but not really many people around at the bar. The beds are not very comfy as it is coated in plastic and the pillow case had hairs all over it when we arrived which suggested the bedding hadn’t been washed. Don’t think we would recommend this place

    Security: lockers are outside of the room and you have to pay extra for them. When the rooms are 24 bed you’d expect lockers to be included. Staff: weren’t particularly friendly or helpful. The social area is closed from 11pm-8am so if you wake up early in the morning they make you wait outside until 8am - breakfast was then served late. Cleanliness: The pool was green, the showers were mouldy and just a tin can. The beds were a piece of foam covered in plastic on top of a tin can.

    So if your thinking of coming early in the morning from you flight, DONT book this place, as the reception closes at 11 and doesn’t open till 8am. And for the receptionists I don’t think I seen them smile the full 4 days I was staying here. And useless when I needed some information. Beds was hard. The only good thing was, it had hot water for showers, and the room was well ventilated. Prob won’t stay here again though.

    Cleanliness needs to be desperately improved. There were roaches, a used condom under my mattress (which was covered in plastic... Classy) and dust/ trash everywhere where I slept so I can say confidently they didn't clean out the sleeping area before they gave me the bed. The a/c unit dripped all night loudly, the window next to my bed didn't close fully so there were mosquitos biting me in my sleep. There's a reason this place is only RM20 a night. Never staying here again in Penang.
