  • unlike some comments suggest, the hostel is not just close to the beach, it's basically ON the beach and you hear the waves in the rooms and see the ocean from the balkony. it's very clean and basic. walls are very thin (seems to be the rule in penang). transportation is easy (bus 101 to georgetown/national park is very frequent). the town itself is absolutely lame (except for the night market). also, don't expect a nice tropical sea, it reminded me more of an industrial port in the baltic sea!

  • The staff at ET Guesthouse were very informative and genuine. The hostel was well maintained, safe and had all the required amenities. We had no problems with the aircon and the hot water system worked perfectly.
