Near Island Hospital. There are Chinese restaurants with great taste.
Very near Island Hospital. Clean and comfy. Great WiFi signal.
Worst hotel I have ever stayed...not clean, worse toilet...very hard to find food, no mini mart or anything around it.
good service, good food at resto at good price. clean room.
We had a "lovely night" at room 23x . The room is darker than the other room (booked for 2 rooms). Its already opened when we enter the room (so we don't use the key to enter) and we can smell something unpleasant coming from the room. Few minutes after we enter the room, 1 of the lamps is turned off automatically and turned on again at midnight when we fell asleep. We don't have problem with air cond today. Nice! Next day, the air cond is turned off automatically. We tried to switch it on, but the remote seems malfunction suddenly. Few minutes later, we use the remote and it worked! 1 hour later it switch off again. We checked the remote for timer (maybe because of this) and indicator lamp for timer on aircond is not on. We found nothing suspicious. ...And few minutes later it happens again. It's just 3 times, and we can sleep peacefully with functioning aircond until next morning. PS: do not close the toilet door when you sleep
The meal is lack of variety and not healthy.
Not so bad it's clean and only take 5 minutes to Island hospital because we are medical travel
Friendly and helpful staff, clean environment
A clean room, nice hotel, near Island Hospital, suitable for medical reason
Nice location with great service

Unfriendly Staff
The reason to stay in this hotel is very close to Island hospital(opposite). My Mom got eyes operation in the hospital. The price is cheap &free wifi. The problem is that the room is very dirty.The linen&towel are shabby.We dont have any bath -mat in the bath room.The floor is very slippery too. Before going to hospital I asked the FO staff to tell HK to clean the room and changed the linen And she said YES but at 2.30pm arrived from hospital.The room hadnt been cleaned.Nor sorry or apologize from the same FO staff. Her answer is we re fully booked. Better leaving this place and find the much better one. Not recommended at all. Tje hotel Maagement need to train FO staff to be nicer&friendly to the guests

Fairly Clean but average stay
Spent 2 nites at the hostel. It is quiet and away from the busy city rush and traffic noise. Took Rapid Penang #102 from Sg Nibong Bus Terminal (Rm2.70) to the hostel. The bus does not stop in front of the hostel but at the Island Private Hospital (200 metres away). Free wifi is available and the strength and connectivity may not be at its best. You need to sign-in and request for connection every time you log-out. Good Luck...enjoy your surfing. A complimentary breakfast is served at level 2. Either the Asian Noodle soup or the standard Toast bread with bake beans and egg. Comparatively low hostel fee which is proportional to the standard of facilities and services you will get. A short stay will be fine as there are many more interesting accommodation else where.

good budget place
decent stay, bed was a bit wonky, pillow not the best. But BEST COFFEE in asia!!!!! nothing was too much to ask for the admin desk, had free wifi. Carpet was not very clean. Location was ok as I was there to head to Island hospital, so going across the road was very convenient. Breakfast was not fantastic but as expected from just a hostel

Great value rooms with great restaurants onsite
This is a very comfortable place to stay at a great price. The rooms are of an older style but the beds are comfortable and to rooms are of a generous size (especially if you take the supreme option). The restaurant on the ground floor is outstanding and the cafe (on the 2nd floor) serves the complimentary breakfast. Great place, great people. You cant beat this for a value stay in Penang.

Manage Your Expectation and You'll Be Fine
The hotel had the best location as it was just accross Island Hospital. If you or your family have to visit Island Hospital, then YMCA is the perfect choice. I and my family stayed here for about 3 weeks to accompany our mother who had to go through surgery in Island Hospital. It's a 2 star hotel and therefore you need to manage your expectation as it would definetely not a marriot or ritz experience. The building was quite old and so are the rooms. Basic needs were fulfilled: warm water, good and clean beds, towels, simple breakfasts and of course helpfull staffs. The price they offerred was really a value for money. They have also a chinese restaurant on the ground floor thay you need to visit. Great food! But please be prepared as this is not halal.
