Best of the best hostel”

Friendly staff, Comfortable environment, Superb location

Stayed at Ryokan @ Muntri Street for 1 nights with my friends. This hostel has impressed me in all aspects from the moment I checked in till the end of my stay. The staff were all very friendly and attentive to assist me. They were willing to service you the best, this is rare in a hostel. Moreover, there was some sort of butler who escort us to our assigned room. wow! I am paying less than 50 bucks! The room was clean and well designed. Environment of the entire hostel make me feel that i am home! In overall, the hostel is much more beyond what you paid. I would definitely recommend this hostel. It's a must to stay here when visiting Penang.

neat and tidy hostel with excellent service”

suitable for backpackers, location is good in george town

overall, i am very satisfied with my stay with roykan @ muntri street. the hostel was clean, staff was friendly and nice, aircon was well working. we had 8 friends, so we booked 2 four bed dorm. it has not failed our expectation. all of us have a very good impression on this hostel. we said we wouldn't mind to come back to ryokan to stay for our next visit. there's a reason ryokan@muntri street have a good review rating on agoda. the location of the hostel is strategic in george town. it is near to many famous restaurants, night pubs and local arts. it is also within walking distance to the seaside.

Simple, basic hotel with prime location”

Good security, clean and basic room which is value for money

Ryokan offers a very basic and comfortable 2-person room at an affordable price. Location of the hostel is very good and very near to various attractions like the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion, museums and the ferry from BUtterworth. Very easy to find the hostel which is tucked away in a quiet lane (Jalan Muntri). Staff are friendly, approachable and knowledgable about the area and how to get to places outside of Georgetown. Good job!

An enjoyable stay in a ryokan-styled hostel!”

Free wifi, comfortable bed and nice hotel concept

I’m going to Japan end of this year on a budget travel. I came across the word ‘ryokan’ often enough and it made me wondered what it means exactly by ‘ryokan’. When I found out that there’s a ryokan-styled hostel in Penang, I grabbed the opportunity to give it a try. I was simply amazed and loved my stay there. It was unfortunate that I planned for only a single night stay. From outside, the hotel might mislead you. You must step over the threshold to see for yourself what an amazing hotel this is. For a budget hotel, this is a fantastic place to stay. Security is definitely a high score for the hotel; something that I thought would not exist for a budget hotel. The bed was comfortable. As it was a weekday, I had the whole room to myself. Amazingly, since the showers and toilets were for both genders, they were clean. Shampoo and bath foam were also provided. The heater worked too. I could have go on and on about the hotel. But I would suggest that you stay there and experience it for yourself. It would be worth your stay there.
