Have stayed here twice while going through Penang. Yes its a hostel, but it takes things up a step with nice service, a solid bar/restaurant, and clean/organized communal rooms. The Georgetown location is great as well.

Within walking distance to lots of great food, Little India, the street art walks and the water. Dorm is comfortable and private and the downstairs area always has good music playing. Internet does not work in big dormitories, and the breakfast is nothing to get excited about. Mugshot café around the block has killer homemade bagels and cream cheese though!...

The hostel is in a really great location with all the main attractions in walking distant. However, that is as far as the complements go! The staff we very disorganised and when we arrived to check in for our four bed form there was already one person in there! This meant we had to wait a couple of hours for...

This is a very cool place if you like to chill to reggae music in the sun. Drinks are okay and beers are a bit cheaper that the other places around it. I had the pizza and it was quite nice, properly the best pizza Ive had I Penang. Can definitely recommend

I was originally meant to stay here for 3 nights and extended to an extra two as I loved it so much. The beds are pod style with your own light and plug at your bed. The staff are amazing, so friendly and helpful and work so so hard! The breakfast is good with the basic toast, jam, boiled eggs...

Nice owner and clean room in the backpacker district. Good reggae music all day long and terrace to chill. Plenty of bathroom available. They also can arrange visa for you. A nice play to stay in a busy district

Clue one, you are in Penang. Clue two, open your eyes and see a generic pizza and international backpackers smoking and drinking beer. Clue three, you hear a Jamaican lilt. Where are you? If it's Tuesday, then it's Love Lane. I didn't stay in this hip hostel, but did take a meal there simply to chill with the music. The...

Good location close to restaurants, launderette and mini marts. The individual pods were great with comfy mattresses and were quite roomy. Cupboard could have done with being a bit bigger, air con was a welcome relief. Nice outdoor space on the balcony to sit. I didn't see any bed bugs or rats, found the place really clean just wish other...

This is a great place to stay. I stayed in a 4 beds dorm. Every bed is shaped as a pod. Locker is under the bed, as always, bring your own padlock. AC was working good. Dorm was facing the street, a bit traffic noise and some music from the bar downstairs in the evening but the bar didn't stay...

Babetdehoon, 1 Mar 2015 | Read review
“The top bunks are a bit of hassle when moving up and down. There's not much space in the room for your bags. Therefore, you'll probably have to keep your bags on your bed bunk. If you have a heavy bag and are in the unfortunate position of getting a top bunk, you might have difficulty getting it onto your bed. The rooms above the reception are have strong wifi but you'll have to deal with noise coming from the street.”
