  • This place is THE BEST! Central location to Penang, awesome owners, great vibe of people coming through and very clean facilities. Look no further than here if you're visiting Penang. The owners know the best kept secrets and will happily tell you where to go/eat! It's pretty new so the showers were particularly impressive and lots of Air con throughout. If you appreciate design the interior of the hostel is also particularly great! Had an awesome stay. Highly recommend!

  • House of Journey is very good and comfortable. The staffs are always ready to help you and give you advice where to go and what to do. The security is top notch with everybody has his/her own key for front door, room, and locker. It's not a hostel where everyone can come and go and you don't know who they are.

  • I would highly recommend this place. Very great atmosphere and comfort. Very helpful staff - they truly aim to make this place a home from home. Also the building is very interesting. The hostel has the concept of "journey" - lots of storeys at this place.
