The room was comfortable enough.
The room was comfortable enough but when we booked it didn’t say that the bathroom was unattached so it was a not so pleasant surprise to find out that much later and plus we payed 100 bucks for that. It will be better if that was mentioned in the room description.
Good location. Fair price for what you get.
I stayed in the dorms, and the cozy and nice pictures of the building that you see in the adverts are only for the private rooms, the dorms are located in another building, which wasn’t as nice as the main one. The dorm is in the second floor and the bathroom is located downstairs, so it’s quite uncomfortable. The room wasn’t soundproof, so if there’s people in the coffee shop downstairs, you’ll hear them as if they were in the dorm.
The place is quiet and peacefull, well decorated. The staff can help you with anything.
Hard to meet people since there’sbarely Anyone in the common room
The cafe is lovely with good coffee and the staff are really helpful and nice. New sheets and towels were great, comfy beds (although wobbly if your bunk mate keeps moving)
Bathrooms for the female dorm are outside so very warm and lots of mosquitos, there isn't much room in the dorms for suitcases and packs so when the dorm is full it's very cramped. The hostel is split across both sides of the street and fresh hot/cold water is only available on one side so you have to keep going back and forth to fill your water bottles. The location is a bit more of a walk from the main attractions in Georgetown, but conveniently close to the mall if you need to get money out or grab supplies. I probably wouldn't stay here again as there are nicer hostels in more convenient locations.
I love the staff attitude, the cleanliness, the environment, the location is so convenient too, just love the stay.
Everything was fine, but the pool with fishes in it kinda stinks, not very strong smell just a mild one, not suitable to sit there I suggest
Located in George Town (Downtown George Town), Rope Walk Guesthouse is within a 10-minute walk of Leong San Tong Khoo Kongsi and Camera Museum. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
