Very good 8.0 From 38 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Best Hostel ever!
Amazing! Very clean and service was good. I enjoyed the common lounge and the toilets are all clean too. Every signature and iconic food places are all within walking distance. For instance, nasi melayu minang, just across the road Assam laksa and famous chendol from Joo Hooi, 10 min walk. Roti canai, 5 min walk Pop arts or iconic pictures/wall painting, 20 min into georgetown. Will definitely book here again. Highly recommended!

Clean and comfortable spot for the night.
Room and bed is Clean. Sells beer at reception at decent price. Common area upstairs has power plugs so you could work. Bathroom heaters could use some maintenance. Underbed storage is a nice idea.

Poor 2.0
Terrible wifi and uncleanliness
Absolutely terrible. Terrible wifi between 0.5 Mbps to 2 Mbps constantly disconnecting. Also, Bed bugs were found in my bed the first night I got there. They moved me to a different room after I told the staff and they washed my clothes. The bathroom on the third floor has very bad shower pressure and the shower handle is broken. The water heater was also not working.

Stylish and Comfy, But Poor Security
Very comfortable, spacious beds and shared dorm rooms with modern touches. One of the sleekest hostel rooms I've stayed in, by far! I appreciated that the floor had four bathrooms/showers as well (with the best water pressure I've experienced in any hotel/hostel!). The big downside was security. The front door doesn't lock, and there's a separate open door to the outside near the bottom of the stairs that lead directly to the rooms. Three girls in my room had things stolen one night/morning, and unfortunately it wasn't a huge surprise. There's a currently a very clear risk that someone could just walk in from outside and steal things. Always lock the shared room door, and never leave your belongings/valuables out--always take them with you or lock them up in the drawer provided!

Good 6.0
Suitable hostel especially for backpackers. The room was very clean but they should improve their room smells because some foreigners bringing their shoe inside the room. They also should clean their toilet regularly and open more toilet to avoid people waiting. After all, I'm very enjoy my holiday while staying at your hostel.
