Best Backpacker Hostel in Malaysia ”

Staff,Location and Room

I stayed at various backpacker hostel in Malaysia and this is the first time I encounter and A+ is the rate the Kimberley House deserve. The other's hostel room is smaller than Kimberley House. The rooms in Kimberley House is spacious . I have stayed here in different dorms eg Female dorm and mixed dorm. The bed are comfort and clean . There are resting place in lobby and at on the hallway. The showers are clean and not too small. There are lift to carry luggage to upstairs which is really help the guest from carry the heavy luggage. The laundry service also cheaper where the rate is RM 5 per kilo . They provide free coffee and tea for the guest . Kimberley provide two desktop station in the hostel . Furthermore ,the staff especially is superb ,she attends to the guest in professional manner ,I do not know the rest two GSA name but they are good two . I did encounter the owner in the reception counter and they were understanding as I am lack of cash and allowed me to check in with less deposit. Here you can find you are provided with personal locker where you can keep your belonging . I have stayed in other place where they don't provide free locker to the guest . Kimberley House is nearby to the public transport and shopping area and also local food stalls cum restaurants.Conclusion ,the Kimberley House is perfect place for you to rest .If others said its noisy in night ,its because of the guest who do not know to obey the hostel rules ,to not make noise and they are not considerate of others who are tired and sleeping at that time . The hotel management have done their job by providing the best to the guest.

Hot drink water dispenser to make coffee/tea or instant noodles was available at front desk (not in every room). Bedroom was spacious, with comfortable bed and beddings, nice fan PLUS air conditioner. Fast wifi. Bathrooms (shared, not private) was clean and bright. Easy access to airport by public bus, near to free hop-on-hop-off bus to get around Penang without spending any cents. Will stay there again when I get back to Penang!

Convenience & quiet place(Definitely visit again!)”

Great Location, Comfy Room, Clean

Stayed in a private double room with shared bathroom. Friendly staff, good location for bus terminal and short walk to the historical city center of Georgetown. I enjoyed staying in at Kimberley House as the room was spacious and clean. Amazing decor and layout inside really beautiful.

Central and clean”

Central, clean, nice staff

Kimberley House is centrally located, 2 min away from KOMTAR where all the buses stops (including the airport one) and just near a lot of food center where u can eat typical Chinese/Penang dishes. The hostel is clean and has a wide common area where eventually u can socialize. No kitchen or breakfast but tea, coffee and water all day long
