Great location, everything is just a few minutes away. Good food nearby.
Not enough sockets for charging the phone. Walls are very thin. Loud music from bad performers in the evening.
Always clean, always available fresh tea and coffee, great air con, friendly staff, amazing location, cheapest beer in George Town just around the corner but this hostel manages to remain quite chilled and relaxed and the old style house is really nice.
Nothing! It was great
Friendly place in an excellent location
Many of the other guests were very noisy, heavy footed along the wooden floors which made it difficult to sleep
Nice Architecture, very friendly staff! The location is perfect! The provided breakfast is nice, too. We enjoyed our stay (7 nights)!
Sometimes a bit noisy, you can hear some sounds of your neighbours, but it's a nice heritage building, so it's part of your experience!
