One of the best budget hostels i have been to recently. Amazing and helpful staff, thank you for the book!! I got a warm welcome, the girl from the reception with a perfect english would present all the facilities to me. It's the type of hostel where you get a family like type of feeling where you receive trust and consideration. Free cold or hot water on every floor. Well maintained and clean. Also big bonus they got a rooftop with a nice view. Definitely would recommend!

No lift.”

If your stuffs are heavy, I can't recommend here. I was assigned to stay female dorm, and I have to go up to 4th floor via stairs. If you want to leave your belongings after check out, you have to pick them up before 6PM. I booked here to go to Sungai Petani, so I have to change my plan. If you're OK on these conditions, then I can recommend here. Staffs are attentive and supportive to guests.

Bad traffic noise”

Room is perfect. But traffic noise is bad as the room is facing the main road, and the window cannot be sealed. 5 stars if the owner can fix a better window.

Clean hostel with affordable price for a sleep”

Everything is OK. Clean bed with air conditioner and with water heater. Just the toilet is a bit small for me. Best location to all the places of interests. Don't get fool by the front of the hostel. When you get in, that is the best and cheapest place you would like to stay. Just the ceiling of the room is too low, not so convenient for the upper deck person. Nothing to complaint.

Location is convenient”

We had a bit of difficulty locating the hostel. Tips: look out for tyre shop called Sim Tyre Service. The building is right smack opposite of Lee Jetty. We stayed in the family room. Very clean very spacious. The bathroom is separated shower and toilet so you dont have to wait to use the toilet while someone is showering. Wifi was a bit wonky at times but not a big deal. Front office staff by the name of Sheila was really nice, she let us check in early since the room was vacant. Location is superb. It's very near to the famous art lane and restaurants. Also walking distance to the bus/ferry terminal. Penang is an island, you can walk everywhere. We did. I have to warn you that if you're staying here and thinking of bringing your elderly folks, you might need to reconsider because there is no elevator, you'll have to walk up the stairs to your room. Our room was on the 5th floor lol! hey free workout :-) We were happy with what we paid for at Sim CityStay.

Great hostel in Georgetown”

The location is great. Just across the road is a really charming boardwalk that leads to the sea. The many great restaurants and cafes of Georgetown are a short walk away. A brand new convenience store just opened up as we were there (leave Sim Citystay and turn left and it's a few doors along) run by lovely people and really helpful. A little bit further along on that direction is a huge hangar filled with food stalls and, when we went, the most amazing pop trio belting out Malaysisn hit after hit to a largely unmoved audience (we liked it and the food was really good). The hostel was clean and the staff friendly.

Great value for money”

Sim Citystay is located opposite of the Lee Jetty, above the Silverstone tyres shop. The front desk staff/boss were being very helpful and kind, quick check-in, and some info on the nearby good local food. The twin room was not too big and not too small either. It was just right for me and my friend. The room was new and clean. The free internet access was a big plus. Bathroom was clean. No lift access in the hotel. Overall we had a very pleasant stay in the Sim Citystay.

Excellent for sightseeing ”

This hotel is exactly locate in front of Lee's Jetty. Instead of finding Sim Citystay Signboard is easier for you looking for a sign of 60 in front of the building. You may park your car at the private parking nearby this hotel. Nearby attraction is just walking distance. Great Harbour view for the Family Room located at 4th Floor. No Lift.

I love it. ”

This is the same review i gave to trip advisor, they deserve amazing review because this hotel and the staffs are just amazingly wonderful. I'm a 21 year old girl came here with my boyfriend and 3 other friends. Went here with 4 of my friends. The cheap price come with nice bedroom. Suitable for those who dont have to transport but want to travel far around penang. Walking distance to the jetty terminal, you don't need any transport once near to the jetty. The jetty is the main bus terminal to go everywhere in Penang friendliest staffs ever. The genuine smile and everything, and very helpful. They even provide a room to keep your bag after your checkout time. As the hotel is only 5 minutes walking distance to jetty, we went everywhere starting from taking the bus from jetty. Penang public transport is reliable. And if you want to go back to the hotel, any bus can do because every bus seems to stop at the jetty as the final. The view is to die for. I will definitely come here again.
