Property Description

The 80's Guesthouse is located at 100 years old shophouses in the heart of Georgetown, Penang, an UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is only a stroll away from most of the historical landmarks like Little India, Fort Connwallis, Kapitan Keling Mosque, Khoo Kongsi, Kuan Yin Temple and Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion.

This guesthouse is all about preserving the memories of the building, expressing the detailing, creating a natural, comfortable and authentic interior which appears to be a joy to occupy. All effort has been made to preserve as much of the character of the existing building as possible. Existing features have been left untouched while new circulation has been added. The interior retains traces of its previous incarnations in the form of sections of exposed beams, brickwork and aged door. Those incredible worn walls were simply left to be as they are – patchy and broken – without the need to make them perfect by restoring or covering them up.

The 80's guesthouse offers amazing value for travelers who looking for a comfortable and unique stay on budget. We hope the total experience will be authentic and create timeless feel to you.

    Great Hostel in a perfect location to explore Georgetown. The staff was super nice, arranged our appointment for a Thai massage and took care of everything. Loved the design and concept of the hostel, definitely recommended!

    This place was lovely, security was great, the beds were also really good too. Unfortunately I had to move to another room because we are only given paper cloths as blankets that do not shield from the cold, and the people in my room wanted it freezing. If my friend did not stay with me, I would have checked out and gone elsewhere. The staff were really apologetic about this. The Wi-Fi was also quite bad, with barely any reception upstairs. Breakfast was OK, though nothing special.

    Yes the walls are thin and you can hear people in the next room but the shower pressure and temperature is amazing! The free breakfast is toast, jam and fruit. Tea and coffee is available until 5pm each day. The staff are really friendly.

    I stayed in the 6 bed female dorm and had a really great stay as a solo traveller. I met some lovely people on the first day and we were in such a great location to go and explore the town. The hostel is in such a great location as it is situated on Love Lane where lots of restaurants and bars are but not too close to them that it is very noisy or anything! The laundry service is great at 80’s, and the showers are the best ever!

    80’s guest house was a lovely place to stay. The location on love lane is perfect with access to everything only a short walk away and a great nightlife just 2 minutes away (without being close enough to be heard from the hostel). The facilities are very nice with good showers and drinking water and the dorms are nice with your own plug socket and light. The staff were super friendly and accommodating and helped us with all the best spots and a map on the first day too!

    Great location on love lane right by all the restaurants and bars. Good breakfast. The showers are amazing and never busy. The 4 bed female dorm was perfect and I met 3 lovely girls there. The hostel isn’t the most social but you can definitely meet people if you want to.

    Really good location, the beds are comfortable and the aircon is excellent. The breakfast is basic but good. The place kind of had a weird smell. Very quiet when we were there but that might have just been the time we stayed.

    Our main problem with the hostel was the smell, not sure if it was the sewage system or something in particular, but it was difficult to be in the common area for long stretches of time because of the sewage stench. The place itself is cute and simple and in a great location, staff were sweet and helpful. Wifi was inconsistent, but not a bad place to stay/meet fellow travelers
