    Great hostel! Right in historic George Town so easily walkable to food, sights, bus, ferry. Awesome staff who provide great recommendations and are super friendly and down to hang. Social atmosphere -- you probably won't get the best night's sleep of your life but, hey, you're staying in a hostel :) 10/10 for me!

    House of Journey made for a fantastic stay in Georgetown! The staff are friendly, knowledgeable and provided some great recommendations. Super clean facilities, simple breakfast and great music in the foyer! Central location made it easy to walk to wherever we wanted! We met a great bunch of people here which made leaving that little bit harder! The only downside is not enough common space, but they are currently renovating to fix this! We will certainly be back!

    Excellent location and excellent host. Would 100% recommend to stay here in this unique location of the city. Both my friend and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Also, the host knows where is best to eat in the city! He knows the good stuff!

    A sweet, cosy hostel located in the centre of town (right next to Chulia Street and Love Lane)! The beds were VERY comfortable and rooms were clean. I also really appreciated the free breakfast, tea and coffee. Staff were friendly, but somewhat evasive/reluctant to offer me a late check-out despite the fact that my room hadn't been fully booked at any point during my stay, which I thought was a bit bizarre. Regardless, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at HoJ and wouldn't hesitate to return!

    I had a great stay at this hostel - perfect location, friendly and helpful staff and the free toast in the mornings is a nice touch. One super simple improvement that would make such a huge difference would be to PLEASE add some pegs to the showers! Currently you have to put everything on the floor and in a small box room everything inevitably gets soaking wet which is incredibly annoying. However I would still definitely recommend this hostel!

    Great location, central to everything and super easy to walk to all the must see neighbourhoods. Though, very little to nonexistent areas to chill out after a long day (unless you want to just stay in your bed). Overall, would reccomend.

    -House of journey is located in a good area and makes most places easily accessible. -good breakfast. Keeping it simple but executed well -good security -nice staff -our shower was blocked with hair, we were told “it might be while” until someone could fix it (luckily they seemed to find someone willing to unblock it straight away) -the hot water in our building didn’t work so we had cold showers for 4 days - our room was very dark - some one extremely heavy footed above us
