Ryokan Muntri Boutique Hostel is established as the first ever flashpacker hostel in Malaysia. Our unique Japanese themed accommodation offers you attractive facilities with funky minimalist lobby design, and most importantly, an all-round cultural experience.

Ryokan is located on Muntri Street, which is smacked right in the middle of the Unesco World Heritage territory. The rich influence of culture and heritage of this vicinity adds yet another trait to its personality - a backpacker haven. Sandwiched between the famous barstreets of Penang - Jalan Penang and Lebuh Chulia and surrounded by picture perfect architectural and cultural sites, Ryokan is the perfect accommodation to be for an all round experience. So come on, make a DATE with us, and we'll shower you with the experience of your lifetime. Like our tagline suggests 'You're not a flashpacker if you haven't stayed at Ryokan!' We look forward to seeing you soon.

Things to note:

In order to make your stay safe and pleasurable we ask you kindly to stick to the following house rules:

Check-out time is at 12pm, and check-in is from 2 pm onwards.

If the check-out time of 12 in the afternoon is exceeded you will automatically be booked for another night. We won't be surprised if you like our place so much that you automatically want to stay! No for real, our staff really needs this time to clean the place for the next guests.

Valid identification is required. We only accept national ID cards or drivers license and passport for foreigners.

To make the stay pleasurable for everyone please respect each other's peace, privacy and belongings. Stealing is not cool; karma will knock you right in the head!

Only paying guests can stay overnight. We are happy to welcome visitors of our guests in the bar area but they are only allowed to stay till 11 pm.

Smoking inside Ryokan is strictly prohibited. At the outdoor bar area smoking is allowed.

We're not in a hippie commune or a war zone, absolutely no drugs or weapons allowed! We reserve the right to confiscate them and notify the authorities and they don't joke around.

Consumption of alcohol is restricted to the restaurant/cafe. Alcohol abuse must have been fun when you were twelve but by this age? Please drink responsibly.

For health and hygiene reasons we cannot allow pets or animals. There's a Bird Park, Butterfly Farm, Snake Temple and a Botanical Garden filled with cute little monkeys, we advise you to pay them a visit if you do get lonely.

For the same reasons we ask you kindly to keep dorms and public places clean and tidy, pick up after yourself. Our staff is not your mom. We want to be the cleanest hostel you've ever stayed in but for that we need your help!

We have a close relationship with the Salvation Army and any clothes hanging to dry throughout the public area will be donated to them. As will soap, shower gel and maxipads that you leave laying around.

During check-out all items rented from the hostel must be returned. (otherwise your deposit will be forfeited)

Sorry guys but Ryokan is not liable for any damage or loss of your belongings. Please take care of them.

Alright, maybe not a rule but a more a wish: we hope you have a wonderful stay!

We trust everyone to respect our house rules. If for some reason rules are not abided, we reserve the right to take your deposit, expel you from the hostel, charge you for any caused damage resulting in loss of income, or call the authorities.

Prices are per person per night.
