First impression was good friendly staff and clean reception area. We arrived early and couldn’t check in until 3pm. The receptionist kindly let us go and use the lounge area. IT was really nice and spacious, 2 toilets, books, breakfast bar, kitchen area, kettle, fridge and toaster. It looks clean if you glance over it but the kitchen has some sort of ant infestation. A few ants is ok but they were alll over the floor ,sides sink everywhere which said to me that something isn’t cleaned particularly well there. When we got into our rooms it was nice but really really dusty. The bed frame, my small table and the drawer for my backpack looked like they haven’t been wiped down in weeks. However the bed was comfortable, plenty of showers to use. I hate the fact that they have the air con switched off between 12pm and 5pm I think they assume everyone should be out between that period but that’s not the case! The hostel is in a good location walking distance or a bus ride away from most things excluding the airport. I’m not sure if I would stay there again but I do recommended it for a 1-2 night stay as a base in Penang.

Great place, great ambiance. Tido Penang Hostel is so Homey
I came to Penang alone all by my self with no idea where shud i stay during my visit before hand. Then I found this hostel at some travel e-commerce. I saw the picture of this hostel and i think this place is the best place to stay, plus i would travel all by my self so i need to stay at the place at least safety and comfy for myself. Surpraisingly this place is super cool! I would rather call this place HOTEL than Hostel. Super cozy and fancy. I got cheap price as well. (So lucky!) I like this hostel very much, the place is clean, cozy and fancy, the staffs is so kind and helpfull, tho the wifi signal is not that good but i dont mind since i have my personal internet connection. If you wanna go to famous penang street art you can just go there by walk maybe about 1.5 kms away from the hostel. Or you can rent a bike/bycicle. The hostel have a rent service as well. I really recomend this hostel to you guys, especially for solo and inbudget traveller like me to stay in this place :).

Road Trip to Penang
The hostel is clean and decently comfortable. The hotel area is quite clean, the room and the shared toilet. Basic facility provided and nice common area to hang out. Location is mid of Georgetown and walking distance to Komtar, City attraction like street art, the famous breakfast roadside stall. Parking is just at the roadside surrounding the shop-lot

Budget friendly and nice place
I had a pleasant stay. A simple, neat looking place.Clean toilets, comfortable room. Definitely coming back. The staff by the name Eric is helpful. Good bargain for those who are travelling in a big group. Not far from tourists attractions spots. Other than that there's a convenient store nearby. In addition,our group had breakfast just beside the hostel which to me is certainly essential.
