Basic accommodation, hostel style. Some showers not working. Floor creaky and walls very thin. Shoes are not allowed in rooms. Morning breakfast enough only for a big family. Above average room rates. However coffee is good, sheets clean and staff friendly.

We had a difficult time searching for this place, in the late evening upon touch down (generally the roads in Penang are kept the same width, in between rows of post-war shop houses and there are many small roads, which makes it difficult to identify which roads we are driving on). Overall, the price was reasonable, although we had to...

Hostel in great location, rooms nice and clean with communal area in middle of rooms where breakfast is served. Reasonable cost at 25rm per night but air con didn't work in room and only 1 of the lockable cupboards worked, others were broken. Room was very noisy on the Friday night as it is right next to a food court,...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for about 5 days and had an overall pleasant experience. It's a hostel place, with multiple dorm rooms. Most (if not all) bathrooms are not attached. For the price - 30 ringgit a night - it's not a bad deal! Breakfast is included, as well as free wifi (which is slow but usable). We...

So this place is very cheap! Not even £10 a night and it includes breakfast. So you wonder what the down side is, Well shoes have to stay outside the building, not jut your room the whole building. There are bunk beds in the dorm the top bunks don't get lockers but the bottom ones do, so I guess they...

Very nice hostel centrally located. Stayed in dorm room with good beds and AC. Simple breakfast included. Not a party backpackerplace. Staff is mostly helpful. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean. I think it is great value for money, 25 RM for dorm bed.

Free breakfast (which is rubbish!!!) And wifi. Stayed in the 6 bed dorm. Comfy beds with air con. Lockers were provided but only for 4 beds so it was first come first serve.

This is a great quality stay given the price you are paying. The rooms are very clean and the bunkbeds are comfortable. There are plenty of plug sockets and locker space. There were a few showers and toilets in the washing area and a hairdryer. The washing area is also clean. There is a nice outdoor space in the courtyard...
