Nice place and well-recommended.
Awesome. everything is perfect. thanks
I feel safe and comfortable here. The place is really near to Komtar, and they have 24hours minimarket. I arrived after 12AM, but they still welcomed me very nice and warm. They provide hairdryer and Iron which is really important for me. Everything is great here.
Overall is good. The only thing is my room is difficult connect wifi.
We're stayed 2 night it's okay. Good location, Clean room. Awesome hostel and staff are nice. But internet (Wifi) not strong I mean not good. But for me I'll back again in future.
A great place, nearby to mall and easy access. just I lost my sandals, supposed to have CCTV there.
I had a great time there and love the swimming pool
Superb. Every time I travel to Penang, I choose Wassup Youth Hostel!
Very recommended for group traveler. Near Georgetown and Komtar.
No meal provided but this is not a problem as around the area have a lot of choices of food.

Great colorful place.
When i arrived for my check-in, the girl was playing on her phone, and it was looking like i was annoying her. The check-in has been pretty fast. The faster the better. The single room i booked was not very spacious, but was pretty confortable. There was a Big TV, a desk, a Locker, some coffee & tea with a Jug. The towels are provided. The bathroom was clean. The only thing is the door who was very hard to open .... The common areas are very beautiful. There is plenty to do. There is a pool table, there is a babyfoot table. And i didn't tried, but i've seen a door apparently going to a bar inside the hostel ... The wifi was not really working well. The swimming pool is very nice. There is also an outside kitchen & a smoking area. I stayed only one night.

Above Youth-Hostel standard.
I went there for 2 days to get a new visa for thailand. I have been to many youth hostel and this is way above the standard. Room was very good, staff is very pleasant. A good place to stay. I can recommend this, for sure. Great price-value. I had no problems at all. Yes, the Internet could be more fast. But hey, good for facebook/Email. If you need really fast internet, try an internet cafe. Staff was very pleasant, to hang around with. If you need a taxi, use theirs. Pool is cute. So is the female staff. Totally non smoking inside, but when you stay downfloors, it is 10 meters to the pool, where you can smoke. Like + 1

Consider Cheap and nice to stay.
This Hostel would be very near by Komtar Tower. very recommended for Traveler, young tourist or even Family. The Family Room are more like Hotel rather than hostel. Not very recommended for Old people as they uses stairs. Everything here is well arrange. Very Colorful. Staff is very helpful, They have maps and list of Great place to visit. They have pool table, place to gather around, even small back yard for sun bathing. you can do light Cooking like instant Noodle, water in the Kitchen in the back yard for refill water. Luggage drop is available up front. They have Mini Shop just right beside (outside the Hostel). For Penang local Food, walking distance about 15 mins (ask the nice staff).

Good and bad at the same time
Nice hotel with fresh theme. They have swimming pool, recreation room, mini kitchen, and colorfull bean bag. Negative : 1. Poor Internet/wifi connection. Event the computer they have is so slow. 2. A little bit dirty for the room and the bath room.We make online reservation for superior double. The room is large but the bath room is narrow and only have 1 mirror in the bathroom. Positive : 1. Near to Komtar. So you can get everywhere from Komtar. Every bus always stop at Komtar. 2. Not so many food in the same road with the hotel. But if you want to take a walk for 2minute there Will be a lot of food stall everywhere (to jl. Penang, chowrasta market, prangin mall, Komtar walk) How to get here : From Pengkalan weld / Jetti (after arrived with ferry) took free CAT bus. Stop at Komtar then take a walk to jalan. Penang (about 3minutes walk) From Penang airport Take bus 401E, Stop at Komtar. Walk to jalan penang for 3minutes.
