    Hassle free check in and out, with locker i arrived past 10pm, clean bed and 3 shower room. Bed has privacy(with curtain) friendly staff, can communicate really well. Great location if you’re looking for quiet place but also walking distance to heritage area, about 10-15mins walk. But if you’re looking for bars and hangout with other tourist go for love lane street but can be noisy and crowded in that area. 10/10 nothing to complain. Free coffee and water by the way.

    Comfortable hostel with super helpful and friendly staff. Lots of privacy in the capsule like beds, however the room got quite hot at night. Pretty good location, walking disyanxr to most places like Love Lane and Armenian Street and Little India. Breakfast is fantastic. Good security with lockers.

    Thanks to the staff that stayed up for my arrival. My bus was so late getting in, I was worried I wouldn’t have a place to stay! Bed was comfy and clean. Shower was functional and clean. Free breakfast is always a bonus. Nice people to chat to. I felt it served the purpose of what I needed for 2 nights, I perhaps would’ve changed after this time if I stayed in Georgetown.

    Great place if you want somewhere quiet and friendly. Beds are cubes with curtains for privacy, and are kitted out with plug sockets and light. Staff are super friendly. Bit of a walk into the centre of George Town, about 15 mins but not an issue at all. It may have just been the time of year but the beds did get a bit hot despite them each having their own fan. Overall great place and good value for a stay in Penang.

    Excellent accommodation overall. Clean room, iron and hairdryer provided, spacious bathroom, staff speaks good English and reminds you of important things. One downside is when it was raining, the raindrops fall on the zinc roof and causes night-long noise at the highest floor. Would be perfect if early check-in is allowed (provided that there is a vacant room of course). I arrived unexpectedly early at 11.30 a.m. but wasn't allowed to check-in and had to tour around until 1.45 p.m.
