Perfect Budget Accomodation
This place was exactly what my friends and I were looking for. Extremely friendly staff, clean, comfortable, affordable, hot water/ aircon and only 50m walk from the beach. The ownership was very helpful in assisting with an early morning taxi service who came promptly at 4am. Directly across the street there's an amazing beach bar called Beach Combers. Go visit Tony for some world class service, local craft beers, cocktails and shisha. He took such good care of us we felt like we were on a cruise. We later found out he used to be an F&B manager on a cruise ship. Overall extremely happy with the guesthouse and location.

Location, location, location
I booked late for New Year and was limited in my choice of places so decided "location" was the go. I was not disappointed as Baba is a stone's throw from the beach at the back of the main shopping street. The owners are local Chinese and very pleasant and helpful. My room was simple but clean and air conditioned with its own bathroom. What more do you need. Outside there was a large communal balcony whereby there was a view of the sea (and ashtrays for smokers). The common areas were clean but dated. The only downside was noise but that's to be expected in such a good location. I did manage to sleep. The cost was the icing on the cake, very affordable yet in an expensive area.

All the necessities are here. Very clean and well kept guest house. Although can be very hot in the rooms. We stayed in a double room with ensuite which was tidy and simple but hard to sleep with the very noisy air con. VERY NOISY!!! The mosque is right behind the guest house so be ready to wake at 6am pray time. Very nice family who run the place. Views from the water when on the upstairs balcony which is nice and very very good loco.

cheap accommodation next to the beach
Old guesthouse run by the local family that faces the beach. As it is next to the mosk it gets noisy at early morning an all pray times. it is basic accommodation with shares bathrooms - in my opinion overpriced for what you get. Try to get a room facing the see to get some wind otherwise you will get cooked in all others.

Watch out for Sandflies if you Stay in the Fan Rooms
Bedbug Issue Presented by Previous Reviewer: I read a review here about bedbugs. I was in the same room for two nights, and THE PROBLEM ISN'T BEDBUGS. Because the guesthouse is so close to the beach, you're prone to get sandflies in the room, which is what happened in my case (I did a quick survey of the room and there were no bedbugs- just a mattress which I think is in need of replacing). What I did was, before turning on the lights in the evenings, I closed the window so that no sandflies could enter the room, killed any that had gotten inside the room, and put on some bug spray before going to sleep (didn't get any bites during my stay). If you don't want to deal with that, just pay the extra ~8 dollars and get a room with an air-conditioner. Guest Room Review: I, myself, was fine with the fan room. Just know that the evenings are pretty cool so you should be able to sleep comfortably with the fan, but if you're planning on staying in the room during the day, I would say upgrade because the fan room gets HOT by 11 A.M. or so. Price-wise, the guesthouse is alright- very basic. Thought Georgetown had more decent places for less money but location-wise, it's close to the beach, it's nearby the National Park, and there's a night market in the evening which is pretty interesting. Walls are pretty thin so be considerate to your neighbors. Also- get ready for the muezzin to talk your ears off in the morning prayer from the mosque. Most mosques only have the muezzin speak for 5 minutes or so, but this guy goes on for about half an hour. Food-wise, lots of restaurants in the area but a lot of them are priced according to what you would pay in Europe or the States/Canada (quite expensive for Malaysian standards in my opinion)- but there are the one or two food courts that have cheap eats. The owners who run the guesthouse were super friendly and helpful, the internet was quite good for Penang standards, and the bus stop is very close by so it's convenient to get to Georgetown, the National Park, etc. Both the 101 and 102 stop by the National Park and it's only 1.40 RM one way. To get to Georgetown costs 2.70 RM one way.
