Wonderful hostel”

Friendly staff, clean rooms, low noise

Most of the time I was around George Town and returned to Peace Hostel only to spend a night. Overall, it is a perfect place to stay for a couple of nights for a young guy or girl without children.

Perfect Location”

Location; Value for money; New facilities

I stayed only one night and I liked that check-in was quick. Front-office personnel spoke English and were very helpful. Facilities are relatively new. My mattress was comfortable. I appreciated the electrical socket and reading light in my bunk! The hostel was a block away from the food joints along Chulia and the way was well-lighted. It was within walking distance from the main bus station, but I don't recommend walking if you have a trolley luggage--you'll be walking on the street as sidewalks are almost non-existent. Overall, this place is probably your best option within this price range.

Very value for money you are paying”

1.How welcome the host (Nic&Simon) are giving to all guests 2.Good location 3.Female dorm size was spacious,comfortable bed,clean bathroom&toilet

The best thing I loved about this hostel was how welcome Nic&Simon showed to all guests which I found it's very important. After been tortured from previous hostel, I felt so much ease&comfortable to staying here. The female dorm size was spacious, having curtain for each bed was giving you a private feel (a light&electric plug provided), the bed was comfortable to sleep but wish I could have a bigger pillow, the shared bathroom was airy&clean, never have to wait. Only a bit downside was the aircon would work only in between 9 pm-10 am, however, I didn't have any problem coz was out all day long. In the nutshell, I liked what I stayed - thanks so much Nic&Simon, I'll be back again :)
