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.

    Good hostel location, hot showers! Beds are comfy. Staff were very helpful full of advice. The free breakfast is just toast, maybe a selection of fruit and yoghurt. Not sure whether they have this but it must of ran out by the time I ate, so maybe more of it. Overall a good hostel, would come back again!

    a place which me and my travelling partner liked ! on the first night my friend got a few bed bug bites but we alerted reception and they treated the bed straight way in the day while we were out and they were completely gone when we got back. the staff offered to move us to another hostel around the corner, or another room but we were absolutely fine :) the downstairs has a lovely sofa and TV for watching films which is a nice touch. the bathrooms are fine - a lot better then most!

    The location is really great, and the interior is cool and old school. The breakfast was plain, but alright. Got tea, water and coffee for free, though the latter wasn’t very good. The showers are nice and clean and the toilets as well. The WiFi was really bad in the rooms. But the biggest issue was that our room was greatly infested by bedbugs. Me and my friend woke up covered in bites, that now have been causing irritation for multiple days.
