- Backpacking
For backpacking, it is fine. You get what you pay: the price of a bed is very cheap. The air-conditioner worked well, good for getting refreshed from the hot and humid weather in Penang. However, be prepared for very basic facilities. And, get ready for hearing the noise coming from the loud music of the pub downstairs. I don't have problem with that, because I enjoyed the music anyway while falling asleep. No locker, and no door locking, so security may be a problem. Watch over your valuable goods. I didn't have any problem with that. No drinking water provided. But, you can get it from a convenience store right opposite it. Not a right choice for a family trip and not recommended if you are with children. Food is easy to find. Transport is easy. No bugs on the bed, so, it is fine for me.

Smoke everywhere, music so louder and the staffs never come and clean the room.
- Shopping & Culinary
If you choose mixed dorm think again, no dorm key lock,no personal locker,no light,sound proof is good but when they choose to play louder music and increased the volume time by time,you will feel the wall just like a slice of paper. Every night 24 hours they play music until 3 am. They are the best music banger hostel the area.I barely can hear other pub music but it turns out chulia court music is the best like nightmare.

We took the family room and it was situated on the ground floor next to the parking area. We checked in quite late in the afternoon and was told by the staff that tonight there will be a party right there at the bar which was literally next to our room. We asked for the rooms upstairs but was not able to get it as the hotel staff was unable to accommodate. Unfortunately we had to endure one sleepless night and checked out the next morning. Please consider If you plan to sleep in your room..
Location is central. The deluxe room was clean although has insects. I think this may be normal in restored pre-war shophouses.

Overall it's good but Friday night is noisy due to party going on at front premise

It was like staying inside a museum, because the building is an old Chinese shophouse and they have big Chinese portrait on the wall. The first floor is a bar so you will hear noise music at night. The hostel is in the second floor, when I was staying there, I was the only guest. So it was only myself in the second floor and I could choose any bed that I want. Overall it's kinda cool living inside museum-alike/bar/Chinese temple but kinda creepy because of the loneliness

Great place. Near to go everywhere

Nice to been staying at this hotel, the deco is beautiful (east meet west) but the ciggarate smell from the pub downstairs at night is not suitable for family vacation.....
