It's at the heart of the heritage Georgetown. It's affordable, accessible and clean. Right at its back is Little India. It's near Kapitan Keling Mosque. There are food houses nearby so as the bus stop.
I stayed in the four-bedroom dorm for 4 days at the first floor. The bed's comfy. The hot shower's working well. I only had a roommate on the second day of my stay maybe because ‘twas off peak. Coffee, tea and water were available 24/7. If you're fine with bread, jam, fruits and foodhouse noodles, you'll enjoy their free breakfast. The staff is generally approachable and helpful. You can ask for freshly brewed coffee. I did.
The downside: the noise from the above floor, the early morning noise from the reception at the ground floor or the kitchen noise from the neighbor food house reached my room. But all of these are tolerable. But, I presumed it could get noisier during peak season where guests could flock. Also, if you're carrying your heavy luggage, you might want to reconsider because the wooden stairs are quite steep.
