“Horrible rooms, horrible owner, horrible prices”
Reviewed 18 September 2013 via mobile

Like the previous reviewer we too visited Penang during a national holiday, which seems to be the only reason why anyone would resort to staying here. The owner, having already bumped her prices for the holiday, saw the opportunity to rip us off further when we asked for an additional mattress in our triple room. For four people ( one on the floor) we paid 250R. Even outside holiday season this place should be avoided. You will pray for your neighbours to crack out their durian in the corridors if only to cover up the smell of urine. Also keep your eyes out for rats. The rooms did appear to have been cleaned but were hardly worth the price and the lock to the toilet door was broken. You will have to fight for every towel or toilet roll with the rude, disinterested and at times confrontational owner who even made us pay an extra 10R to store our bags for four hours after check-out. Try and catch the owners friendly son for any kind of good service.

Reviewed 2 June 2013

I had the misfortune of coming to Penang during a national holiday so, naturally, everyone had increased their prices. We paid RM120 for a very basic twin room. Even the usual rate of RM55 wouldn't have been close to good value. There were hairs in the beds, the walls may as well be made of paper and there were damaged light-fittings and holes in the ceiling. When it comes to the beds, the sheets were made of plastic, the blanket was wafer thin and the mattress hard as a rock.

I have been traveling Asia on a budget for a long time and I am not difficult to please, this is my first bad review so I am not exaggerating!

If you are coming to Georgetown, book somewhere in advance so you are not forced to settle for a shoddy place like this!
