Good value in a unique shophouse”

Location: strategic, there’re many bars and a small night market within 100m. The popular Teksen Restaurant is just at the street opposite. There’s a bus stop, if you’d like to go anywhere - National Park, take 101. Facilities: a common space to talk with fellow travellers, (there is a TV and some movie CDs but I didnt try them). The air-con room is six double-deck beds with a socket and a lamp beside your bed. The beds are separated by a guard so others can’t see your head when u lie down. There’s a locker. The common toilet has shower rooms and restrooms. Cleanliness: the house itself is very old. You see worn-out wood door and sodium light bulbs in toilet and common space, and brick walls. But the floor is clean and facilities are maintained. Staff: friendly, they guide you when you have doubts. Yes, it’s good value. If you don’t mind living in an old shophouse and share room with strangers, you’re welcome.

Shoutout to Bayu, the best hostel staff ever.”

My stay is made great mainly because of the day staff, Bayu, and his amazing hospitality. He’s very knowledgeable about Penang, has the best recommendations, absolutely funny, very welcoming, goes above and beyond for every guest. The amenities and facilities could definitely be better, however. If there’s a feedback I could give about this property, it would be to add towel hooks in the dorms/rooms, provide bathroom slippers, add curtains to the dorm bunk beds, free coffee/tea, and perhaps provide a proper functioning water dispenser with cold water— as these are basic amenities every hostel should have. The filtered sink water is like urine, come on now. And maybe fix the washing machine too for guests’ use. Would happily if these are being addressed.

Worth it!”

As the name 80's, the decoration and theme of this accommodation is also like that. Coupled with the building which is indeed an old building makes this place so authentic, aesthetic and minimalist. Good wifi network. Toilets and showers are shared. More suitable for solo travelers or with friends. Not suitable for families. The location is also close to various cafes and other shops. And everything can be reached just by walking. Although it is located in the center of the bars at night, this hostel still feels comfortable and away from the noise.
