      Best Hostel in Georgetown ”

      This hostel is fantastic! Fred, the owner, really makes a genuine effort to make sure everyone's enjoying their stay. The hostel offers great activities to do for all kinds of travelers whether you're interested in nature/culture/food/live music. The place is clean! The staff are always helpful and friendly. The location is perfect! It's a short walk to the hawker stalls, Malaysian & western restaurants, the famous Red Garden, Love Lane, but is in a quiet neighborhood. Really enjoyed my stay, looking forward to come back.

      A really lovely place to stay. The location is in Georgetown so it's easy to walk to most places. The bed was very comfy and my room had good AC. They also have free cold water to fill up your drink bottle. The only slight complaint is that I thought the bathrooms could be a little cleaner but besides that very good :)

Their bathroom need to be repaired, dirty water from another room will flow into another room. There is bicycle rent services around this guest house (Link Bike). You can rent a bicycle for 2 Myr for first 30 minutes and then 1 Myr for every hour. This guest house location not so far from bus stop, it is around 8 minutes walking from bus stop. Not so far from cafe and bar, 7-Eleven. It is easy to get food in the night and morning near this guest house. The chinese food around this guest house hot spicy.

      Exceptional”

      Being group or solo traveler is best with this place especially those who like to travel as backpackers, looking for vintage, classic old building to stay. Location wise, I will say this is best place because it is located very near to the most attractions, such as Penang Street Art, museums, foodcourts/restaurants, jetties, etc... if you don't mind to walk. But of course another option is to obtain bicycle for ride... or get a Grab car is also very easy. The place is quiet from noisy traffic, or anything.

      Excellent and quiet location, but toilet needs improvement”

      The location at Muntri Street has the advantage of being close to Chulia street (find the shortcut), while being way quieter than Love Lane (we stayed at Love Lane for two nights and it was quite lively/ noisy). Muntri House provides good value for the low price point. We don't mind having no windows in our room, but the toilet could use an upgrade. The shared toilet was not as clean as I would like, there was only one toilet big enough to shower in so be prepared to wait. Overall it was an okay stay... can't complain much for the price point!!

      I loved my stay at Muntri house. Not the best social hostel if you’re into that but it was perfect for me (nice and quiet). Location is perfect, breakfast is more than just toast and jam. 24/7 tea and coffee. Decent wifi but a bit slow in the evenings. The common area is nice and open with lots of seating. Really comfy beds! I stayed in a dorm the first few nights and moved to a single bed private room my last night. The dorm rooms are nicer with bigger comfier beds. The single room I stayed in must be near a smoking room because my room smelled like cigarette smoke on and off all night, and the bed sheets smelled like someone else had slept in them. Overall a really good stay, thank you Muntri House!

      Clean and Value for money”

      This place is located at heart of george town, the care taker of the place is friendly and remembers well of the people who come and stay. Simple and effective rules, night is handled by chip system. Rooms are clean and comfortable in a heritage house. Breakfast was simple, good for backpackers unfortunately once i wake up is already finished. Just the bathroom doors need replace as a lady almost got locked inside the toilet.

      Cheap Solo Room”

      It's very rare to find a hostel with a solo room with a single bed. I'm happy they have one and I don't have to pay for a double room. The room space was very sufficient, ventilation was good and the place was very quiet. The location was just just a block away from Chulia main street and a few walk away from the night hawker. It's probably less than 10 minute walk from Love Lane where they have bars and live bands. They provide fresh fruits (apples and oranges) for breakfast. The bathrooms are shared but wasn't a problem. It was almost always kept clean by the staff. No shortage of tissue. They have free hot and cold water at the lobby. I really enjoyed my stay here, and would highly recommend for solo travelers. The staff are nice. I am an introvert and I don't like it if the staff are overly chatty -- they were perfect they would leave you alone unless you need assistance. It's near a laundromat and the bike station. Argh I have no more space to write more about this review.

      value for money, quite near to hotspot if you are too late to check in, around 11pm. you need to be aware that, you might need to call to host. It will take long time for pick up. overall is avarage
