60 Ringgit for a clean decent room. We had aircon and a fan with a long Asian bathroom. The room has a desk and a couple chairs, and there was a window .. which seems rare in Malaysian budget rooms.

The location is good, right in the center and close to the red garden food court. The rooms are simple and clean. There is hot water and a fan. All windows had a grid against mosquitos, but the windows (the ones on the groundfloor anyway) face a blind wall, so don't expect a view. Helpfull staff. Good value for money.

I was so well taken care off at Star Lodge. I arrived very late and the only hotel that was sweet enough to take me in. It was extremely safe there and I couldn't fault the place one bit. You get a lot for your money here...especially for Penang.

The location is very central and the prices are very reasonable. They also book trips and tickets if required and you do not get ripped off. I have been here many...

Four words - stay here in Penang! It's cheap - the staff are super helpful, great location and the rooms are very clean and hot water and aircon worked. We had room G8 which was very quiet and had a window which was sealed off with mosquito screen which was appreciated. The clientele are a little older but very social...

Reading some of the review's here I think it's a case of either love it or hate it. Personally I love the place, stayed there twice first time for 2 weeks, second time 2 months. I will back again in November this time for 4 months. The owner has 2 other places on Muntri St, E & O Cafe &...
