Good and clean, nice place to stay.
Old town area. Nice view. Clean room but little bit noisy. Easy to find food.
Good hostel, good breakfast, good location
Good hostel, friendly staff. Clean, tidy. Good location, nice building. Air con good. breakfast relatively standard, but with a few local twists that made it more enjoyable (e.g roti, noodles), good bonus. Felt safe walking back at night. Bus stop for attractions nearby. Lovely visit.
I'm comfortable staying here. This is the second time I sleep here, a great hostel in Penang. Next, if I visit Penang, I will sleep and stay here again. Thank you, Ryokan Muntri.
Nice place. I like this place. Will come back again
Such a big deal for nice hostel and cheap price!
The place is quite clean, facility is ok but WiFi is inadequate
The service is very good and accommodation in good condition. Nice place to stay and very recommended.
Overall a nice place to stay. The room I booked was on the ground floor and was already huge for one person. All the necessary items for the room are provided, except for the slippers. Being on the ground floor, occasionally I can hear some footsteps on the above floor and some noise on the ground floor near the door can also be heard. Maybe improve more on the soundproof part. Free breakfast is nice too and worth the price though need to have more variety. If given a chance, I will try to go back to this place again.

Second visit, lost some charm over time, but still a great hostel
I got a chance to book again in Ryokan after two years. The hotel is still popular with locals and tourists alike. It has lost some charm since I last visited the place, and I noticed some things that kind of made my stay slightly not as fun as it was before. First was the staff, the new staff seems a bit reserved, maybe they are new? Not sure. The indian receptionist doesn't seem so enthusiastic, while the chinese one was a bit timid. Second was the more glaring one. Not sure if they are not maintaining the place well, but I noticed the floor was very creaky, especially along the corridors. Every time someone walked past, it was so noisy that it can definitely wake you up if you're a light sleeper. It was a bit annoying to be honest. The rent comes with breakfast, decent selection, although I remember having better options the first time I stayed here. There are also nearby cafe and the night street food along Lebuh Chulia. Penang has recently implemented the LinkBike, bikes that have different stations around Georgetown, and one of the stations is just nearby the hostel. I find it very convenient, since now you can take a bike and go around town. For Pokemon Go players, there's no pokestop, but there's two nearby. I remember they had a pokestop in front of their hostel, I don't know why it was taken down.

Hostel with a Hotel style
Stayed in a 4 bed dorm, very clean, cleaners came in each day to sweep and mop floors and changed bedding, blankets and towels every 2 days! Breakfast included in price, wasn't amazing but can't complain - hot dog sausages, boiled eggs, beans, noodles and toast. Wifi was a bit hit and miss and water in showers rarely got hot! Advertises as a 24hour reception but this isn't the case, we arrived at 6am from the first ferry of the day to a dark building, staff then arrived at 7am but we couldn't check in until 12.30! Really enjoyed our stay here, very central location and staff are helpful and polite.

Great hostel
We stayed here for around 5 days in a dorm, the rooms are really clean and have a really good aircon. The wifi is a bit hit and miss and the showers didn't really get hot but other than that the place is great

Great staff
Everything is great here, the hostel design to give you quiet space, location is not too bad, in old town but not far from shopping centers. Staff are plus+plus, very helpful. This hostel is under a good management to keep room clean, polish hardwood floor in a way.
