I was really disappointed in this hostel. It looks nothing like the photos, which almost resemble a mid-range hotel. Instead, I arrive to dirt all over the walks, a busted mirror, busted curtains, bedside table covered in small ants, and sheets that clearly weren't washed (wrinkled, and no fold lines). It's a real shame because the staff is great. But...

I stayed here for 3 nights and the place is very central to everything in George Town and the street is on the main backpacker bar area. The rooms are just ok, we had a queen room with a bathroom. The room is very small, the smallest I've stayed in out of all south east Asia. The rooms could do...

Stayed here for three night while doing my visa from Thailand. Great atmosphere and good service. Don't expect 5 star as it is a guesthouse but rooms are good and come with breakfast. WiFi all around and huge TV with plenty of coffee in the lounge area. Nice and comfortable feeling. Some rooms share bathroom but that's OK as the...

Great location, you can walk around the town from the place. The lady at the receptionist was so nice and helpful. We booked the train back to KL at 6am, which was really early to take any of public transport, and Uber or Grab wouldn't be any easier. Luckily, she contacted her friend to take us to the KTM station...

We stayed at red inn heritage over Chinese New Year, so the hostel was very busy. We paid for a superior room which was a great size, had a couch as well as a king size bed plus desk, so loads of room to spread our stuff out. The room had great air con which considering the heat over the...

It is cheap, it is central. It could be cleaner, especially the common areas like sofas in front of the television. This hostel is in an old pre-WW2 shophouse but although it has a lot of potential, the decor is bad. It could be much nicer with just a little bit more imagination. Breakfast cannot be called breakfast - just...

From the desk and the front, the place looks clean and inviting. Step into their rooms and you will be transported to a slum. The rooms are dirty although the toilets are alright. Don't look under the wash basin unless you want to have the shock of your lives. Walk deeper into the 'abyss' and you will find a small...

We got ourselves 3 double rooms and a family room for a little over RM600. Seeing all the bad reviews, I didn't have much expectations before we arrive. Despite the creaking wood floor and paper thin walls, this place is comfortable and it has air conditioning. If you're the diva type that can't handle sharing bathrooms, don't come here. But...

This hotel is the worse I have ever seen. Before even going, called up to enquire about room details, operator was so impatient and hurried me to speak faster. After a while, he got so rude and just hung up on me? What?????? I'm so not going to continue to book this hotel. Horrible staff! With such staff, can't imagine...
