We love the situation, it's homey. That afternoon after check out they allowed us to take a rest at their lounge and get shower. The room was spacious, more than we expected, the bathroom space ok for that price and that condition and location is strategic, we definitely will go back

So, it was beyond my expectations. The room was super clean and seemed new. I stayed in dorm for 4 women with 2 (not 1) bathrooms inside, so there was no reason to wait too long for shower. Each bed has it own electric plug and reading lamp,which was really great. In the common area, they have some games that you can enjoy, plus there were karaoke and spa pool....... Though I didn't try it, I think that's super cool. They didn't provide breakfast, only free flow water, coffee, tea and you can cook, since there were stove, heater even fridge. I asked for an iron, and it came right away to my room. Not to mention that the location is really near to Komtar (bus terminal), it's just 4 minutes walk. I will definitely stay in Wassup Youth Hostel when I'm traveling to Penang.

I asked them to clean my room but they just keep the trash and tidy up the bed so the floors are still dirty and at here there is no lift so if we go up and down must use the stairs. My room on the 3rd floor it made me very tired of carrying my suitcase and the employees there just saw me carrying many suitcases without helping me. It's very inconsiderate.
