8.5
It's a nice place and located in good location
6.5
No sound proofing at all. Noises from people walking and open/close door disrupted our rest/sleep.
8.2
Customer service is very good, and the price quite affordable for those backpackers, its location also strategic if you're planning to have a trip at Georgetown (not far from Komtar) . But I can't sleep well because the noise outside the door is very annoying, you will definitely hear clearly people is walking when they passed your room. And parking is limited especially during peak season, it is located beside the road though. I had requested for an extra bedding and I got the pillow and bedsheet with brownish stains, the hygiene is doubtful. it's good for those who is having budget travel to Penang.

Overall so nice but being a muslim girl its a bit difficult because the shared bathroom
9.4
Cheap double bed room near the historical center and also Komtar, bus station for buses to KL etc. Rooms and shared bathrooms are big, clean and comfortable. AC, and free water cold. Hot water and boiled water also hot. House is quiet, internet fast enough, receptionists welcoming and helpful. So everything ok for us for 4 nights.
8.7
Good location, old building, comfortable but need some renovations, sometimes noisy at night when peoples walking at the corridors. Toilets not always clean but you have several to choose.

Good place to stay
We stayed 2 nights. First in a dorm and then in a family room, the dorm was okay but the family room was much better. The place is awesome and clean and in a good location. The only bad thing I have to say is the bathrooms need some work. I would recommend staying here short or long term.

Injuriously tiny rooms and bathrooms
They know the major problem and don't change anything - read closer their reply comments. Smallest rooms and bathrooms i have ever seen in my life. Painfully so...Kept banging against furniture and walls. Would have been tiny if it had a twin bed, but cramming a queen or king sized bed was just stupid of them. Bathroom was ridiculously small. So horribly claustrophobic had to leave room. Not worth any money - you couldn't pay me to stay there... Looks nice in photo, but comically tiny.

Uncomfortable stay
A decision to stay at this place was a bad idea. For starters, the air con was leaking terribly in the room. I understand it is an old building,however, it was badly maintained as the common sink area was littered with empty beer cans and bottles. The whole building does not have a clean feeling and my kids were very unhappy. Vowed never to stay here ever again!! But then again, this place would suit someone who doesn't have cleanliness as his main priority.

perfect location, comfort, friendly
the staff are really friendly and informative, the hostel is clean, though the air conditioning in our room is a bit cold :). the location is perfect, in the middle of Georgetown, and the food stalls are everywhere near this hostel. the wifi is fine.

Good location, comfortable
Nice and cheap hostel, room is clean, although need to wait for bathroom (shared bathroom). Although the common area is kind of hot and there is a old building smell (i'm not sure how to describe), to me I had a pleasant stay. If you are a light sleeper, you might need to request room that is at the corner. The floor upstairs is wooden floor, so it really make noise when someone pass by. Recommend for a budget trip for the location and the price :)
