    The guesthouse is in the center: temples, historical buildings, Chinatown and Little India are just a few minutes walk. A bus stop for local buses is also very close, which is important if you want to explore not just Georgetown, but the rest of Penang Island as well. Old Penang Guesthouse is a 100-year-old building - and it looks like that :) It is properly cleaned, there is free tea, coffee, and water to drink. Breakfast is simple: toast, jam, some cornflakes, fruits, but it was okay. It is easy to socialise with other people in the lounge.

    The building needs some renovation. There is no window in the female dorm. However, the lounge behind the reception is a very cosy and pleasant place, so you can stay there instead of the dorm when you are not having programs.

    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
