This is a well located hostel for a very good value, considering that breakfast is included. I stayed in room 205 (female dorm) and didn't have an issue with noise. The rooms are pretty small and pitch dark but with AC. Bathrooms were clean enough. If you come by train to Butterworth, just take the ferry, which is a 5min...

The room was comfortable and clean. The linens were clean. The breakfast was amazing and Mack, the host, was awesome. The only downside would be the bathrooms that were always kind of messy. They really need to figure out a way to keep them clean and dry.

Booked 4 nights at this hostel, stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm with a private bathroom. Room was away from others up a spiral staircase and was very clean. Had USB inputs, power sockets and lights in each bunk. Mac was very helpful on check in and couldn't help you enough. Would definitely stay here again if I visit...

I stayed here with my husband in January, we had a private room, whilst it was basic (and without an outside window), it was a beautifully renovated colonial building, right in the Old Town and the staff were exceptionally accomodating. Opposite the Hostel there is a nice restaurant we had lunch at as soon as we arrived. The directions on...

This is a great place to stay for backpackers in Penang. Very clean and modern. The bathroom and kitchen facilities are excellent. The breakfast in the morning is fantastic. The WiFi is a little slow though, and bring earplugs to sleep at night because the floors are quite loud when people are walking by. The location is convenient - within...

If you're a backpacker looking for a cheap, clean and comfortable place to stay in Penang, Ryokan is perfect. The receptionist Mac is awesome and is really helpful whenever you have queries about what to do or where to eat. We will definitely be back!

I'm a light sleeper. The other reviews are correct, it was tough a couple of nights. If you can, get rooms 201, 202 to minimize the people walking by. Or try to get a bed as far away from the hallway wall as possible. In every other way, a great stay. Breakfast was boiled eggs, and some types of breads,...

Couldn't fault it. Great location and very clean. Mac and all other staff were incredibly helpful. Breakfast included in price is very nice. Lockers big enough to fit your whole bag in and the whole hostel is very safe and secure. Probably the nicest hostel we have stayed in during our travels. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks for...

I would strongly recommend Ryokan Muntri Boutique to weary Travellers;It has a cool calm ambience and all the facilities a backpackers hostel has and more! My experience chilling out after hot afternoon walks and taking rain showers were most exhilarating. Would recommend this! Mac is hospitable and very friendly!
