  • DO NOT STAY HERE. I got completely covered in bed big bites. Found one on my bed during the day, indicating that there are way more hiding away. Do yourself a favor and stay away.

  • Helpful and welcome on arrival.Nothing that was dissapointing. Mybed light not work but bed was clean in large mixed dorrn. [i was the only guy with 8 women first night half my age. It didn't bother me. Good location. Free computer's [2] very slow. very centrally located. Penang people very friendly l found and always ready to take time to give directions. Penang a bit dirty for me and not enough natural things like parks and beaches. Stayed for 3 days.

  • I stayed in the 12 person mixed dorm for 25RM. There was also a 4 person female dorm for 28RM. Would be nice if there was a 4 person option for men for the same price. This is not unique to Old Penang but rather quite common around SE Asia and kind of irritating. Also, the breakfast is good but you have to wait around for the fruit to be served. Not sure why the fruit can't be ready with the rest of the breakfast.

One early morning, accompanied with a semi-hot cappuccino and croissant eaten like a true Roman - standing up and in a hurry - I was off on the Metro to the Vatican.
