Excellent Homestay in the heart of George Town
Stayed here during a weekend trip to George Town while travelling alone. The hoemstay is located at Lebuh Acheh, which is walking distance from most of the great street market and food joints in Armenian and Cannon street. The sitting room in the ground floor is cozy and artfully decorated for a relaxed time. The owner, Soo, was not present when I was around, but her partner was very sweet and helpful. The single room is not cramped and is comfortable with a single bed and a coat/cloth hanger. Note that the rooms have an open roof, so, it can be noisy generally, but I did not have any issue as there was no one in the family room next to me. The toilet and the shower rooms are in the ground floor and are clean & well maintained. Complimentary self-service tea/coffee is available in the hall too. The host was helpful and friendly, I had nice conversations with her and it was nice of her to suggest me places and things to do. Overall, a great place to stay and chill, specially if your motive is exploring the culture and beauty of George Town.

Extremely friendly
Having come in straight off the ferry (5.30 KL Train) I found this place at around 6.30 am. The staff were extremely friendly, even first thing in the morning. Let me take a shower and set me up with a nice room. Normal check in is at 2pm but they were very kind enough to let me check in immediately. Fair price, small but suitable room for a solo traveler. Nice to get such a warm welcome.

Friendly staff, cozy stay, great location
Located in the heart of Georgetown, the Homestay in walking distance to almost all attractions, and ferry terminal. 5 of us traveling, we got our own big room that can stay up to 10 pax. Perfect decoration, spacious, clean room and clean bathroom. Cons: a bit noisy in the day time, as the room is right on top of a street. No mosquito net, which means I was sleeping with the mosquitoes. Mosquito coils and repellent is provided though. A very friendly staff, SooSiang, helped us to settle in quickly, and attended well to all our requests. She provided lots of information for our local land tour. Thanks a lot SS!

The awesome guest house
This is probably the 5 start of guest houses I have stayed through most parts of Asia i been to. Reason being BECAUSE IT IS CLEAN AND HYGIENIC; that's the Toilets and showers and all other rooms. You can even walk bare footed without any worries but the manager dos provide you with disposable slippers. All the rooms have AC and the sheets are dam clean. There is a livening room, which has a flat screen TV bean bags and a giant teddy. Also you may have teas, coffees and pot noodles free in the living room as the owner Sue tells me to treat it like my own house. The location is right near the central part of George town, which is called kunta(not sure about the spelling), where you have access to the central bus station, shopping malls, little India and China town areas. So in other words travel is easy; you can walk around site seeing just outside the hotel or jump on a bus to where you wanna go and back to the central bus station, which is 8 minutes walk away. The Guest house has a cool bar restaurant next door if you fancy. I did stay in another hostel just 10 minutes walk away and it was not clean and that's the showers and toilets and all guest houses and hostels do give you good customer service but this one gave me an exceptional warm service; it is a place where you will return even if they didn't give you the warm service because lets face it you wanna been a clean room to sleep in, clean shower to wash in, and clean toilet you wanna sit in without closing you nose and eyes. The prices around that area are pretty much the same.

My friends and I had a really pleasant stay (the majority of the time the 3 of us were the only guests) The interior decoration of the hostel is also very nice and cozy! I really enjoyed relaxing at the common area after a long day outside. Flashback is also well located such that we could walk to different areas of Georgetown conveniently. The owner Soo Siang, is also very friendly to talk to and gave us good recommendations for food. On our last day, Soo Siang was also very kind to drive us to the ferry terminal for us to catch our morning ferry.
