    So nice we stayed twice!”

    Stayed first in a private room which was very nice and comfortable bed. Quiet despite old building. Great location on Love Lane, but far enough away from the main bars so it was calm atmosphere. Breakfast nothing special, but still very nice to have especially if you're lucky enough to get some fruit. Really appreciate the drinking water refill station. We stayed again one night on our way back through Penang and were in double bed in dorm room. Good value for money, but this one was facing the street and there was definitely some noise from some over-enthusiastic karaoke singers. Curtains around the bed would be nice for privacy. Overall it was great!

    Super Good Customer Service”

    Love the simplicity of the guesthouse with a taste of the old Nyonya culture, bed was super comfy with nice hot shower and location is nearby to everywhere in town. We got a scooter just a few doorsteps down the street in front of a restaurant from an uncle for just RM30/day. What truly touched us is their amazing hospitality!! So I forgot to collect my ID used for the scooter rental from the uncle after checking out and called the guest house reception for their assistance to retrieve my ID from the uncle as I have already checked out and heading to the airport for my next destination. They graciously went through the trouble to help retrieved my ID from the uncle and called me back right afterwards reassuring me and arrange for the collection of my ID on a separate occasion with my cousin who lives in town. Thank you so much for everything!! Gave me another reason to love Penang Island!

    Perfect Guesthouse with Nice Guests and Staff!”

    Located in Love Lane, but just inwards enough where it is quiet! No bar music or street traffic sounds at night. 1-min walk to Chulia Street where the street hawker foods are. Clean hostel, strong hot showers, they give you towels too. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and so are the guest! People do hang out in the common area so it's nice. Overall very enjoyable stay!!! :-)

    Most comfortable bed I've stayed in for 3 months”

    I really liked this hostel, location was right on love lane close to the night life bar far enough down the road that you can't hear it if you want to sleep. Breakfast is basic fruit and toast but does the job and is there until 12. Bathrooms were kept clean and even though there weren't many showers or toilets I never had to wait. Downside is there are a couple of dogs on the property behind and sometime they bark. All night. Non stop. But besides that it's a really great hostel.
