  • A very good guesthouse, completly clean and confortable! The staff was really cool ;) Might miss a bigger area to sitdown and discuss with other travellers, but bars are close so it s ok!

  • House of Journey is a hidden gem located within Georgetown, Penang. Took me only approx. 5 - 10 minutes to walk from the jetty which connects the island to the mainland with regular ferry services. Love the atmosphere - travel brochures readily available on the reception front desk, friendly staff, main lobby wall decorated with photographs of (presumably) owner's travels. Good Wifi connection, personal locker and power points were much appreciated. Certainly value for money!

  • 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!
