"Wassup hostel is seriously one of the best hotels in Penang. The staff was quiet friendly and we also had a great time. The room was clean and although we wanted to use the stuff for washroom they did provided it on time. The best part was that they had a pool and it was neat and clean although there were children swimming in it but still it was clean. The gamming/playing area was also wonderful it was also amazing. I could have easily talked to my family there. The best thing was that they had a bus station behind the hotel and they also had the mall and all the other facilities near as well and we could easily go there and have fun and also do our shopping. The security was also amazing we had left our room keys out of the room in night and nothing happend. One of the best place in Penang is wassup youth Hostel. One must go there if visit to penang"

"It was out first time in Penang, Malaysia and we saw a lot of people recommending this place and so we booked our stay. The location was just perfect, it’s near most of the restaurants and food options. The staff were very nice to us especially in helping us navigating Georgetown. It’s also near the party place so we really had fun!"

"this is the best choice hotel in penang if you are having a medical treatment in island hospital. ymca hotel is just in front of island hotel. the receptionist is very helpful, even i could borrow an umbrella from her when it was raining. the room is very clean, it is worthy compare with the price. one thing should be remember, the restaurant closed at 10 pm, and after that it was quite difficult to find food, since there was no restaurant nearby the hotel"

"Location, price and charm make this place highly recommendable in our opinion. we'd stay there again no worries. We stayed at red court inn several times and stayed in dorms, twin room and king room. All of the rooms were well presented in charming old penang style. the bunk rooms are solid and very comfortable. actually all the beds were lovely. all rooms have aircon too - very important! the bathrooms are all shared but it feels fine - they are clean and the showers are good. The wifi is reasonable and there is a comfortable common area on the ground floor to lounge in and watch a movie or have a can of expensive beer (beer in malyasia=very expensive). there is also a computer there for guests to use. the free breakfast is very basic just a few bananas a bit of watermelon and white bread to toast and eat with jam. But don't let it worry you - go across the road to the vegetarian place and get an excellent cheap breakfast there. Red cout inn does have some pretty steep stairs though so if you have knee problems or any other reason to avoid stairs then please be warned!"

"This is the same review i gave to trip advisor, they deserve amazing review because this hotel and the staffs are just amazingly wonderful. I'm a 21 year old girl came here with my boyfriend and 3 other friends. Went here with 4 of my friends. The cheap price come with nice bedroom. Suitable for those who dont have to transport but want to travel far around penang. Walking distance to the jetty terminal, you don't need any transport once near to the jetty. The jetty is the main bus terminal to go everywhere in Penang friendliest staffs ever. The genuine smile and everything, and very helpful. They even provide a room to keep your bag after your checkout time. As the hotel is only 5 minutes walking distance to jetty, we went everywhere starting from taking the bus from jetty. Penang public transport is reliable. And if you want to go back to the hotel, any bus can do because every bus seems to stop at the jetty as the final. The view is to die for. I will definitely come here again. "

"I honestly can't think of any cons of this place. I have stayed in other budget places where you would have to fight off the mosquitos at night, here it's 100% mosquito free, so you can enjoy a stress- and mosquito repellent-free goodnight sleep! The staff is very friendly, especially Wilson the manager. They would go out of their way anytime to give you great recommendations for food, sightseeing getting to and away from the hostel. Same goes for leaving Penang to other places, such as great tips for both more comfortable long distance travel and the most budget friendly options. In short: Don't think twice and just book your room there, you won't regret it!"
