    I really loved staying at dripping dragon hostel. The staff was super friendly and helpful whenever I needed anything. Greats price for a 4-bed dorm room where I met some really kind people also. I always felt safe and comfortable, and yet still so close to the areas of town I was interested in seeing. Plus - the semi-outdoor bathroom/shower facility was very refreshing! I would definitely return if I am ever in Penang again.

    A beautiful and clean hostel with a swimming pool. Colonial architecture building, nice bar and sweet staff. This place is in centre of Georgetown, near to the party lane but away from any noise and disturbance. Pub crawl, beer pong and good guidance for city tour. Reasonable and comfy hostel.

    Cheap and cheerful, not a party hostel but still a great atmosphere. Looking at comments over the summer there may be new owners as I found it very clean and welcoming. The pool wasn't used much but was very clean. The beds were comfy and the showers were warm. Not sure what else you could ask for at that price! Would definitely stay again.

    Pretty nice place. It has a good common area to hang out and watch movies, and the free breakfast is a plus as well! The fact that it has a pool made this hostel one of the better ones for me. Only issue for me was security and that the blankets were too small..
