This is absolutely one of coolest hostels I've seen in Asia. If you go here you can be shure to have a lot of fun. Alex and the staff will definitly take care of you. Go there and have fun! I was there for three nights and every night and day was fun. Going out for lunch/dinner/clubbing - there is always something going on :)

Great place to meet people and have a good time.. Rooms were clean but the bathroom is really small.. Comfortable rooms, they have a computer with net connection which is useful. They even had hairdryers, jengka to play with and books to read from..

I've spend two nights at the couzi-couji hostel.
I can tell that this hostel has been the most enjoyable hotel I went to.

During the time spent there I have met travelers from all over the world and shared with them really good moments. Indeed the owner, who has become a friend is doing is best to gather everybody as much as possible.
Thanks to his advice we have discovered great places in the beautiful town of Penang.

Moreover during the week end the hostel becomes a great place of Penang's nightlife.
The hostel is really clean and charming. I slept in the dormitory, the room was perfectly clean and comfortable.

I really want to thank you the couzi couji team and all the people I met there for the amazing time spent in Penang.

Great place to stay if you're visiting penang. Hostel was easy to find, beds are very comfortable and the guys working there are a great bunch & Alex makes his guests feel very welcome & organises some great night's out. Booked 3 night's, stayed 4 and if I wasn't on a schedule probably would have stayed longer. If I come back to penang, this is the only place I'd stay.

This is such a great place that you have nothing to complain about but to love it! Couzicouji is more than a usual hostel that it provides so much fun and great hospitality especially Alex! I was there during the countdown and Alex has organised a countdown party and a chillax trip to the private island the next day with only us the guests on the island! Brian is awesome too! Full of laughter whenever he was around with us. The dorm was really clean and you have enough privacy with your own bed curtain which i love. You pay for a fair price but you'll receive more than you could imagine!

I had a great time in George Town staying at Couzi Couji. The rooms are clean and they have very comfortable matresses! The bed's are separated by heavy curtains for your privacy. I had great fun partying and enjoyed my stay a lot! Alex the owner and the staff are all very nice and they always have great tips what to do in and around George Town. You won't get bored at all!
