- Backpacking
The hotel was dimly lit and the reception area kind of looks dingy. The bunk beds in the dorm are small wooden ones...and tend to squeak. I was advised not to check in at 2pm since nobody will be at the counter, so I checked in at 5.30pm... The blanket was so thin I mistook it for a towel and sleeping directly under the AC it didn't really keep me warm.. it was a struggle. The bathrooms were ok but could have been cleaner. Two guests I met had to move out because there was some problem in their room according to one of them.

Such a nice place!
Of the places we have been so far, this one had the friendliest staff. The hostel itself was fine, could have been a bit cleaner, mostly the bathroom. But what it lacked in being clean was more than made up for in hospitality and friendly advice on your wishes. They would explain everything to you. Just ask them and you’ll be given 5 different maps, each being iseful for ofher subjects.

Extremely welcoming owners and staff.
This place is ideal for the budget traveller. Howie and Guavie are extremely friendly, with a wealth of information of the area, which they are always happy to share. They go the extra mile! While staying there, it was common for them to be showing guests around the city, taking them to a good restaurant, or even a cheap place to buy beer. The accommodation is basic, the air con works well, and the wi fi is pretty good. What makes this place, is that you are made to feel at home. It is a hub of social activity, and all guests seem to enjoy the experience of staying there. Close to restaurants, in the heart of Little India and only a stroll to the historic areas.

Great value
I stayed here 2 nights and ordered the private room for 4 person. The room size is enough for 4 ppl . It is not too small and not too big as well. The price didnt come with bfast and it is about 20 Usd per night which is great deal for 4 ppl. The toilet and bathroom was outside but it didnt bother me at all. The location is at little india. Close to the some penang famous attractions and many restaurants. Great deal and recommended to ppl !!!! Loved it !!!!!

Unforgettable stay!
Cocoa Mews was an absolute joy to stay and is also very good value. The place itself has good air con, comfy beds, a kitchen, is clean and has a great location in the middle of little India surrounded by great food and all the heritage sites. What made the stay so special was the manager, Howie who went above and beyond our expectations to accommodate all our needs and make our stay so memorable. We really recommend this place and especially chatting to Howie to make the most of George Town. Thanks Howie and Gaurav, we hope to see you again! Tom and Heather

Such an Awesome hostel.
Very rarely do you stay somewhere that makes you feel as welcome as at the Cocoa Mews hostel. All the staff were so welcoming and informative and sitting on the front porch we met so many other great backpackers to share stories with. Ideal location to central George town and so many good restaurants all within a few minutes. We loved this place and plan to go back in August as we pass up through to Thailand.
