My last stay was a couple of years back, and it's good to see everything has remained more or less the same. It's quite clean, and the bed is comfortable, and the standard inclusions, while basic, they cover for everything that's reasonably needed. The location is within walking distance to the food places on Jalan Mcalister, Komtar, and the nearby shopping malls. The shower works well too, although whoever thought that it's a good idea to have the toilet exactly where the shower is should be shot. There is also the issue with wifi connection, as it seems the coverage is not very good, and if you're in the room that's all the way down into the corner, you might not get a signal strong enough to connect.
Apart from these issues, Overall, I'm quite happy with the stay, and will definitely consider again should I venture in Penang again and looking for a budget option. For the prices charged, it works quite well as a budget base.
