Still the best ever hostel in Georgetown Penang”

This is my 9th stayed in this hostel and will definitely come back again. One of the best hostel I stayed during my trip to Penang. Its value for money, the location is convenient and the staff are friendly. The room was very comfortable, as were the showers and other amenities with quality towel and blankets are provided too. Excellent buffet spread of breakfast with prata roti canai, noodles, toast with jam & butter, sausages, baked beans, mashed potato, hard boiled egg, coffee & tea. Half boiled egg upon request for breakfast and free flow of filter water all day. I would go back without a second thought. Everything is very good as this is not a party hostel. Recommended 100%!

Amazing hosts and central location”

Ryokan is a 2minute walk to Love Lane, which is a popular street for souvenirs, food, pubs and clubs. Their staff was superbly amazing, Shan had really good advice, great help and even accommodated my request to use the shower facilities to clean up from my long trip at 8am before checking in at 2pm. There was ample car and bike parking right in front of Ryokan. Over my 3 days there, I met the most amazing people from Europe, America and Malaysia. Many of them checking out from the neighbouring hostels to check in over here. Thanks for having me, I really enjoyed my stay! Will definitely come again

Overall, it was a great stay, great location. The convenience store just nearby, the room is clean. ”

The breakfast was simple but really nice with the price that we paid for the stay. Worth it every penny especially the homemade pancakes & the coffee. The staff, Harun was very welcoming during my late checkin. He was very helpful & friendly. & the other indian guy (sorry i forget his name😔) also was very cheerful greeting me in the morning. Strategic place for food hunting. The only cons is the parking lot. But u can get the grab car as alternative to roaming around. Overall, definitely will come back to stay here!😊

Best Hostel in Georgetown ”

This place is exceptional! Fred, the owner, is super friendly and accommodating. He makes a genuine effort to make sure that everyone is enjoying their stay at Ryokan. Highlights: 1. Location is perfect. Short walk to restaurants, hawker stalls, the famous Red Garden, popular Georgetown sights, Love Lane but is still in a quiet neighborhood. 2. Clean. Everything. Everywhere. All the time. 3. Breakfast is actually filling. 4. Staff are always helpful and friendly. 5. The hostel offers activities all throughout the week, for all types of travellers, trekking and beach trips for nature lovers, sight-seeing, walking tours, night-life, going to the Sunday pop up market together or going to see Malaysian bands. I had a wonderful time. I can't wait to come back!
