              Good Price, Great Staff, Comfortable but smelly room”

              I was looking for the cheapest stay but in really good location then I found this hostel. The price was really good, so cheap. The staff was helpful and funny. The room was neat, comfortable, but it was little bit smelly. I dont know where the smell came from, but that was okay since I just stay here to sleep and spent most of my time outside. The toilet was clean, no soap or shampoo provided but I got towel.

              Wouldn't go back!”

              The location was great but that is where the positives stop. I noticed, in the dorm, more than one occasion the bed sheets were not changed between guests, so people were sleeping in dirty sheets. The bathroom was not in good condition. The wifi didn't reach the rooms so there was no wifi in the rooms. There was also no communal area to use the wifi in so I ended up sitting in the stairwell.

              Perfect location. Quite good for such price-actually the lowest price for a hostel you can find in Georgetown. A bit messy bathrooms, wifi is rather weak. But again-you can’t complain for such price.

              I am not picky and understood it was a basic place. No issues there. However, the staff is terrible. Especially one of them (one lady in her 40s) unable to work with ppl. The other was a little better but just that.

              Value for the money. Highly recommended. But the location is hard to find. No hostel signboard. But if you go upstairs of the laundry, you'll found it.

Didn’t tell and explain me anything. She don't smile and look angry. Bathrooms are not in a good condition & room had no curtain.

              The service sucks.I arrived at 7pm,tired,and my name was not in their list although I have made the payment.then,they gave me substitute room costs at RM65 for one night although I have paid RM78 for two nights.No balance given back to me.and I had to search for another hotel for the second night.The room given to us was dirty,dusty.dirty towel was on the floor and the window had no lock which was very dangerous for travellers with children like me.Then while we were sleeping,somebody tried to open our door as the key given to him is our room's number and he managed to open our door! The service really sucks!

              Terrible stay, I booked in front of the staff member on agoda since they quoted me a higher price! She made me wait 20 minutes for an email to come in saying she couldnt check me in, finally she checked me in and put me in a dirty room where all the beds looked as if they were not clean. The wifi was nonexistant in the entire facility and there was very few power outlets. Much better places to stay. When I checked out someone stole my motorbike helmet and the staff didnt care to even try to help me figure it out! They didnt even give one smile or hello, the entire time they spoke amongst themselves in their language and many many times i went to reception with a question and the girl was just in the room next door sleep snoring loudly! Rude, uncompassionate lazy staff!

              My Hostel Muntri was a great accommodation experience. The staff was extremely helpful and generous, I hadn't exchanged my money to ringett yet and they still let me check in and stay the night and pay the next day. It was a bit hard to find, but once I found it the location was great. I felt super safe and comfortable here and walking back at night while alone. The only thing I didn't like was that the bathrooms were not very well kept, but other than that I enjoyed my time here.

              Clean and good value for money”

              This hostel is a basic place with simple facilities. For the price offered, one cant expect too much hence I would say its appropriately priced. Pros : 1. Excellent location. Walking distance to many tourist spots at Georgetown. 2. Clean beds + pillows + sheets. 3. Air conds in room functioning well. 4. Good water cooler + heater Cons : 1. Washrooms, though looks recently upgraded, still appear dirty. Water heaters need to be changed i guess. For gods sake please change the lock / latch on the toilet doors coz its too difficult to lock. Its gona cost less than RM10 anyway haha 2. Staircase appears a little steep. Please put a warning sign after mopping the staircase. I personally saw a guest slip & fall on his back at the staircase. (Hope this guy is well) Overall its still an acceptable place. Might consider staying here again if i dont get a better one.

              Nice place! But its hard to find the location. The hostel should have put the signboard so that it will ease the people to find it. There’s no mirror in the room and the irons were very limited
