Liked: The building is really nice and clean and interesting and the staff were friendly and helpful. It has all the facilities you need as well as a yummy free breakfast.

Disliked: The hostel is a little hard to find from the instruction on the website, it took us a while to find; although once we found it, the location was great. Also, we slept in the dorm near the street and it was a little noisy but nothing that some earplugs can't fix.

Liked: Very well built and designed hostel property. Reading lights on each bed, storage lockers, towel included. Free use of drinking water. Yummy breakfast. Helpful and friendly staff.

Disliked: Steep stairs (just one of the stair cases) going upstairs (a bit dangerous). Toilets a bit small. Lighting in the bathroom too dim. Not enough places to sit in the TV viewing area.

Liked: The hostel was one of the cleanest I've been in. The staff were very helpful, sorting the langkawi ferry for us. Very cheap with free breakfast, towel, reading light and secure drawer for valuables. Location centre of little India.

Disliked: The rooms are too small for two people to share Nevermind 4 as in my case, with 4 large rucksacks - impossible. The hostel was very quiet when I was there, not much atmosphere can't be helped I still managed to meet a couple of people :) overall nice hostel.

Liked: The hostel is very clean and in a very good central location by little India. There are lockers provided in the rooms, and the receptionist was very friendly. It felt very safe inside the hostel, and the breakfast was nice, with fresh fruit, although not very vegitarian friendly.

Disliked: The dorm rooms at this hostel are tiny and poorly designed for the space. In the 2 bed dorm, there is literally a bunkbed and about 2feet space around it, with little space for bags and its difficult to get onto the top bunk. Also, my bed light was broken and no attempt was made to fix it during a 4 night stay which I found pretty poor, as it is hard to get up and down to the top bunk at night in the dark. Also, it is very expensive for the price and from here I moved onto a much bigger private room in another hostel for much cheaper.

Liked: Very clean and modern, free wifi worked great everywhere, free breakfast was yummy! bathrooms were very clean and the showers were very good (after staying at many hostels where the showers are rubbish!) Location is great and its really easy to find. The staff are really friendly and helpful and they are about 24/7.

Disliked: My dorm room (4beds) was VERY small, and the common area hasnt got the best facilities... but who wants to stay in the hostels when theres loads of great things to do and see in Penang??
