    Really enjoyed my stay here. Very friendly place in a great location. Staff were helpful, beds were comfortable and the hostel was kept clean. Most people seemed to be extending their stay here.

    Amazing location in central Georgetown close to Love Lane, amazing people and staff - met so many great travelers, common area is small, no kitchen or fridge that can be used by guests, has lockers provided, no towel provided but available upon rental, laundry available by purchase, breakfast could be improved (just white toast with peanut butter and jam, coffee and tea available until 6 pm, smoking area outside, cold AC rooms, showers are nice, overall amazing stay!

    My stay at House of Journey was amazing. The hostel was welcoming, safe, clean, and nicely airconditioned. Its reputation allows it to attract amazing fellow travellers. It has a great social scene with plenty of opportunity to meet others. The staff are very helpful and can book buses and tours for you and offer additional tips. Overall my stay was amazing and I'd come back again.

    Great hostel to get to know people. Super friendly staff. The hostel did seem very old though. Wasn't a fan of that, but it was a good place to sit back and relax.

    Very Good

    22 May 2019
    Really polite staff, a credit to the hostel. Quite basic though, the “curtain” in one of the dorm rooms really needs replacing it’s a feeble attempt at blocking out light, dorm rooms quite cramped and no water/fruit which I’ve had at many other hostels in Malaysia. Overall adequate and reasonable value with excellent staff

    The staff were pleasant. Good location. Common area was quite small but otherwise okay. Bed was a bit uncomfortable but that's quite subjective. Toilets could be cleaned more frequently.

    The hostel location is located in a very convenient area. The hawker area in about two blocks away. The hostel provides toast and jam for breakfast. The cost isn’t extreme although you can grab a hotel for roughly double the price. The facility is clean enough to get by. You’re issued a fob key to get in and out the building. Lockers have Let’s but don’t seem a bit of secure. 18-22 champions may not have any of these issues. Moral of the story .....It’s worth one night.
