    Would definetly stay herr again. Great security, made us feel save - you won’t get through the door without a keycard. Staff very helpful about getting trickets for the ferry to Langkawi. Wifi ok - could definetly use a update. Clean! Thin walls to the hallway and the pool area, people talked loudly and heard Music in the Middle of the Night. Not nice when a rule is “no noise after 11 pm” or so.

    Great location, central to all tourist attractions in Georgetown. Kitchen was handy but basic, only a stove and a microwave. We chatted to the cleaner in our room, he was so lovely and even made our beds for us. Plenty of common area spaces!

    Fabulous

    I stayed here few years ago when it was newly opened. It was quite disappointed to see that it was not well-maintained for its room. I could see hairs on my bed and table when we checked in. The wall in the room looked dirty too. One of the beds, its mattress sunk one side. When we took bath, the whole bathroom would become wet due to its layout. However, I really love its ideal location which is near to the famous eateries and just behind KOMTAR and the friendly staff.

    Definitely a place we wanted to like. We understood that there is a tax for staying in both Penang and in Malaysia, but we were charged 400 ringgit more than we were quoted... Over $120 and it didn't make any sense. Also, our door was broken and we could not get into our room. We were switched to another room, but not as it was supposed to be. We asked about checking out early to catch our train, and we were told reception opens at 7:30...but it's 24 hours?

    Good place for one or two nights, when I was there I felt it was more a hotel than a hostel, no one in the communal areas, the dorms are not that great, bunk beds very noisy when you move. General thought : okay

    Foreign staff was very nice, not so much for the Malay. Was very close to the bus terminal and food areas. Bed was clean, room had mold all over and sink was filthy. Was very cheap and fine for a night.
