Score from 425 reviews Good
Good location. Comfortable mattress but pillow not so great.
The place was being renovated when I was there. No towels provided, only available for purchase. Wifi quite weak in the room. Extremely noisy portable air conditioner. Bathroom and sink very small. Did not meet my expectations for a budget boutique hostel. Moved after two nights and found much better value elsewhere.
Great value for money. located in the centre of Penang vibrant heritage district.
Jalan Muntri is a quiet street but close to many attractions and restaurants. The free shuttle bus stops nearby, so easy to reach from the jetty
single room without window and very small. Poor breakfast
Thin mattress n poor venterlation in toilet.
Wooden floor = plastic layer with holes. Shared bath = dirty toilet-shower combo. Wardrobe = 5 hooks + 1 hanger. Don't even want to talk about the mattress... Too bad: house is a fine classic colonial building, but definitely not worth the price.
Good place / clean /
The single room’s aircondition is noisy
Soundproof room that makes me have a wonderful sleep without annoying noises of the vehicles or people.
It is good that breakfast provided but noticed the bread has become mouldy and it is still being placed on the table. Hope the hotel can ensure freshness of bread serve to the customers.
Good location, friendly staffs, and free breakfast
The bathrooms are unclean and uneasy to use. But hotshower is available for 24 hours.
the location is superb! you wont regret it. the camera museum is just in front of the hostel ;) walk to penang road from muntri street and you will find a bus stop for CAT free shuttle to begin your free-tour around central area of georgetown! we arrived there very early in the morning, 8am. the check in time is 2pm but thank god they managed to make up the bed for us and we can check in hours earlier! they also helped us to store our luggage on our last day after we checked out since we wanted to take a stroll before we went home.
it would be nicer if we can access the wifi from the room instead of going out to the wifi area. but its alright :)
I liked staying in Muntri House a lot just because if its ambiance. With dark wood and high ceilings, it feels like you are staying in a family house of generations (shared bathrooms also contribute to the family feel :)) The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, they offer (small but still existant) breakfast, laundry and bike renting services, which is comfy.
Wi-Fi signal was failing all the time, which was critical to us cause we have work to do online. During the rain, water was leaking from the open terrace into the room. Sometimes two shared bathrooms were not enough and there were queues.
It has a very nice location and the staff is very helpful and attentive.
The walls re pretty thin and you can hear everything
Everything is perfect! after midnight you can use key card to open the big door. muntri house has an iron for free use at the second floor. Staff are friendly. you can walk to red garden food center, mini-marts and many attractions.
You can hear anybody walk and talk around your room. wifi is uncovered.
The appearance of the house (interior and exterior). Walking distance to many places if interest.
Bed and pillow smelt like a well-loved bolster. Air conditioning in room could be stronger.
The house is beautiful! The workers are very nice and polite. Is very clean. The situation is perfect, in the middle of the heritage. I met the owner of the hostel and I can say he's a great guy. He takes care of his customers. Excellent choice!
The common areas are spacious and nice. Overall it was a pretty good stay and in my opinion the location was excellent, although very hard to find when I first arrived. Very small single room and there are probably slightly cheaper options available but it was pretty good and very close to a laundrette
Room size was very small
location, bicycle rent, breakfast, single room, helpful receptionist, the ancient looking ambiance, quite, clean toilets,
won't allow late checkout
Great location cheap and clean
It's in a good spot. Very close to a lot of good cafes and restaurants. It's more of a lane than a street so it's fairly quiet too.
I only stayed here because I couldn't find anywhere else (there was a marathon on that weekend and most places were booked). It would have been fine except on the morning I checked out I found a few bed bugs(just three, I only had one bite). I informed reception when I checked out but the guy either wasn't sure what I was talking about or really didn't care.
We had very spaceous room, very local-style looking and with character. The hotel is nice, with good location and good wifi.
The breakfast was just toast and jam. Also there were only two toilet-showers for the whole hotel, which got crowded in the evening and while people were taking shower, there was nowhere to go to the toilet.
Professional staff, close to the Malls
The breakfast was quite good for included, toast, jam, fruit, tea and coffee, scones.
Stayed 26th Oct for one night, the dorm is very cramped and not much room to put your bag on the floor. Shower and toilet a bit far from room, almost outside. Wifi poor in dorm room. We were going to stick it out for a few nights but on our first morning saw a big bed bug on the sheet! So made a hasty exit.
Character of the guesthouse, air con, staff, free water
Clean and great quiet location.
Wi Fi was horrible.
staffs are very nice. good location even the first time is a bit difficult to find.
The ambience, the space, the facilities, the surrounding food stalls.
Other occupants making too much noise after hours.
