Stayed in a 20-bed room (without AC) for 4 nights. It was hot when I was trying to sleep, but since the window was opened (in fact I believe it's always opened) it got better since it's in the middle of the night and I could feel the night breeze. But please buy a mosquito repellent if you can. WiFi...

The dorm room we stayed was very big with some people even staying on mattresses on the floor and the room was also quite hot as there was no aircon (although I think they were about to change that). But the beds were very comfy and the provided tea and coffee as well as toast was good especially when on...

I stayed here for 4 nights in a 4 bed dorm with A/C. The living room is nice with a big couch and flat screen to watch movies. Breakfast was very good: Toast, butter, jams, watermelon, fried noddles and Roti Canai. Also coffee and tea all day long. The place was clean, including the bathrooms. The staff is a bit...

This place tries to sell you something else online : the room did not match at all the pictures. We booked a room with private bathroom. It was smaller than expected, did not have a window and the bathroom was really really small, like showering in a 50 square cm space squeezed between the sink and and the toilet. No...

It was a nice and condusive place for me, good location as you walk to the heritage sights, bars, food stores and also has a bus station right in front of the street. The staffs are very helpful. There is a Movie lounge with couple of sofas playing all the Block busters(24/7), a resting corner with tables and sofas that...

We stayed for 4 nights (bit of a mistake) at the Red Inn Heritage and although the common room was nice, the staff were unhelpful, the a/c dripped on the bed and we spent most of our time out of the place. The room was small and not clean. They do however have great jet hot showers, although the hot...

Ugh. I had to switch to this one mid-weekend as my other awesome hostel was booked. Ok, so its dirt cheap at US6, but that's no excuse for filth and apathy. Three toilets with no paper (it's been ordered they said), one toilet flooding and not getting fixed, the shower tiles have rarely been cleaned ( look out athletes foot!),...

It is good located, just few minutes walk from the main heritage attractions. Clean and new, recently renovated. Stayed in the 24 bed dorm, and was a bit difficoult for sleeping: noisy and too hot, only 2 fans. The staff was alright, so if you are looking for cheap place to stay in Penang and you are not a demanding...

Very clean, modern and friendly place. Not the cheapest considering it as a budget place but the comfort really worth it. Located close to chinatown and its night food market, and surrounded by other budget places, motorbike rental and bars
