At MR 50, we thought this place was a pretty good deal. Without an ensuite, however, there was only one small grotty toilet and 'shower' to service our entire floor; the window to our room, which faced the corridor, was broken and our front door could be unlocked through the slats (which we discovered after returning to find the room...

An enjoyable stay for one week. It's basic but at the price it is, what else would you expect. I had stayed here a year previously and although the place itself hasn't changed much there is definitely a friendlier vibe among the guests and the owner. Paul was very helpful in getting my visa and arranging my transport to Thailand....

You should pay for towels!!! No toilet paper available but the worst thing is the bed don't have any sheet to cover you and was...

This is THE dirtiest place I have ever stayed in during my 3-month-trip around SEA! (And I am on a tight budget so I never spend more than $5 - $7 on a night) but this place was terrible! There were stains on my sheets, the whole 4 bed dorm smelled like sweat and feet. Poor fan, only one bathrom...

The toilet was disgusting, and wasn't cleaned while i was there. We also had to pay for toiletpaper (1 usd). The owner was very rude, and it actually looked like...

If you are looking for a cheap and simple place to stay, THIS is the one! The owner Paul is an amazing person and will definitely help you to make your trip to Penang memorable, by giving you lots of good advice and telling you many amazing stories. I will return to Penang only to visit Paul again ;)!

The owner went nuts and screamd at me not to touch his stuff and was very unwelcoming. Obviously i did not stay there, but went next...

Dont be too scared reading the previous reviews, a new owner and improvements to the common areas means this hostel is now a more pleasant stay. The showers were clean and the rooms did not have bed bugs at our stay. This is one of the most cheap hostels around. The owner and people staying in this hostel gave this...
