I used this firm to sort out my Thai Visa, well worth the 40 Ringgit, as it frees up a day of sight seeing and eating great meals in Penang and if you need a taxi even one way it soon eats into that 40 Ringitt. The service was professional but they were also friendly which can not be said... More

We stayed at the Chulia Mansion hotel across the street. We dropped off our laundry at 4 pm and picked it up the next day at 8:30 am. Cost was 6 MYR/1 kg. Laundry was clean, dried and folded. Would recommend.

On the 5th of September, circa 5 p.m. I visited the Stardust Gust-House (where I have often dined & slept without trouble ) and, I had a very small discussion/debate/argument, with the Junior Guest-House Staff there, about prices. Suddenly, the Manager himself came over to my table, having overheard the argument. He used very insulting rude language on me, totally... More

I had a very tasty breakfast her. The staff are very nice and friendly. I also rented a motorbike from here for 25 ringgit. The bike was in a very good condition. Upon returning the bike my passport was returned, no questions asked.

Very clean aircon room (but one with windows is a bit mouldy in the corner) for budget 40rm. Great new beds. Fan rooms for 30rm lack proper moscito net (window sealing is not complete). Anyway a good bargain, very friendly staff, central location, quiet sleep.

As my title says, charming cafe with really tasty food and ridiculously cheap. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Situated just in front of the Chulia Heritage Hotel in the backpacker district. Highly recommended.
