I'm backpacking for over 30 years, and Balan the owner of the 28 Bahari is so far the best host I've met so far. Anytime when I return to Penang 28 Bahari will be my first choice.

Facilities are complete. It's close to chulia street and bus stop. The house is one of the heritage houses so that alone is quite amazing. The owner and his family were very nice and helpful, you feel like staying with a family rather than a hostel

Wonderful owner
The owner is just wonderful! Even after check in I realized I was walking with a huge smile on my face. He is so kind and welcoming. Great tips where to eat, travel, how to use the buses in Penang ect. I am SO HAPPY I stayed there, felt like a home. Definitely will go back if going to Penang!

Amazing value, fantastic host
We stayed for 2 nights and couldn't have asked for better. The rooms come with pod style beds (which are very comfy) and AC and the guesthouse has a central location without being noisy in the evening. However the best thing about our stay was Batan who was an absolutely incredible host, everything you'd ask for from the owner of a guesthouse; he suggested places to go given our timeframe and preferences as well as information on how to get there etc. He also went as far to lend my friend shoes for a trek as well as bug spray and suncreen. Would absolutely recommend to anyone staying in George Town.

fun place , incredible value
Booked in for the 6 hour wait from hotel checkout to leaving for the airport , this place is friendly and fun and Bala takes personal care of guests . My luggage was secure while I made some last minute shopping - had a shower and sleep all for just a few MRS. . Next time I will book the upstairs room for sure for a long stay

Amazing time at 28 Bahari!
My mother and I spent 4 nights here and had a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is warm and homey, and the facilities are clean and accessible (plus the beds are all very comfy). Balan is great (as well as his wife and 2 adorable children), and he will tell you all the best places to go exploring, as well as the best (and cheapest) restaurants around. Great place to make your temporary home, I recommend to all.

Go and enjoy the spot :D
As i judge a hostel after an atmosphere, this one was superb cool and we totally enjoyed our stay. Balan was absolutely helpful with giving us all the answers and recommendations. He was a good company for local food as well :D the room was okey, just as yu may expect after staying in hostel, nothing to complain about! I can fully recommend you to stay this place :)
