I went for dinner. The only thing they had available on their large menu was pizza. So I ordered pizza. The service was slow. And finally when they brought out the pizza it was not the pizza we ordered. It was like they put whatever ingredients they had as they did not have much food available. So I returned it... More

I stayed for two nights at reggae hostel. I'm a solo traveller so I slept in a dorm. The dorm was a small room with 12 "podstyle" beds. The room was full, so the floor was covered with backpacks and clothing. The bed wasn't very clean, but it was okay. Same with the shared bathroom: not very clean, but okay.... More

The beds are very comfortable and you have your own pod. The showers are very powerful but cold. Not a problem for me! The hostel is very well located and you can start the art tour from the hostel. Bought a realy cheap bus ticket here after some research, the companys around offer the same for double the price. Only... More

Just off Lebuh Chuilia, this place has the perfect location for anyone wanting to be close to great food and Georgetown's street art. Little India is a few streets away, as is little china. My friend and I have been staying here for 5 days. It's no frills, but clean and our room is quiet! Comfortable beds, lockers provided, but... More

Have stayed here twice while going through Penang. Yes its a hostel, but it takes things up a step with nice service, a solid bar/restaurant, and clean/organized communal rooms. The Georgetown location is great as well.

Within walking distance to lots of great food, Little India, the street art walks and the water. Dorm is comfortable and private and the downstairs area always has good music playing. Internet does not work in big dormitories, and the breakfast is nothing to get excited about. Mugshot café around the block has killer homemade bagels and cream cheese though!... More

“The top bunks are a bit of hassle when moving up and down. There's not much space in the room for your bags. Therefore, you'll probably have to keep your bags on your bed bunk. If you have a heavy bag and are in the unfortunate position of getting a top bunk, you might have difficulty getting it onto your bed. The rooms above the reception are have strong wifi but you'll have to deal with noise coming from the street.”
