    Nothing as such. It was a great experience

    The people , the liberty. The rustic gorgeousness of the place and the kittens. The place is terribly clean, close to the heritage core area. All places walkable. Friendly host. Amazing taste for the decor. Would be back again

    A lot of mosquitoes, be prepared to sleep with long sleeves or mosquito repellant. The front door is locked at night with a big padlock, so in case of fire, you would be stuck.

    The atmosphere is super calm and relaxing. The area is quit, but still in short walking distance to the city center. The Owner is super nice, flexible regarding booking and helps you with ferry tickets if you want to.

    There’s nothing not to like with this place.

    This is more of an oasis than a hostel, or like visiting a friend. Spacious, comfy, great location, quiet. The owner and staff are super friendly, they even let me use the shower after I checked out. Felt sorry I had to leave.

    Nothing except mosquitos 🤣

    The house, the people, the owner who is always ready for helping you and he is so attentive. The place, it's quiet. This was my best place in Malaysia. Not for partybrakers, very good for Young women. Fabulous place!

    The small garden feature in the common area resulted in lots of mosquitos being around so you had to use repellent or risk being bitten a lot

    The heritage house itself is beautiful, the beds comfortable and the bedroom really spacious and cool. The bathroom is well kitted with a decent shower. The owner is really knowledgeable and friendly. It's only 20 minutes walk from the ferry and 7 minutes to chulia street for great food options.

    Penny's Place was exactly as shown and described in photos, very clean and neat..with a fusion touch of modern and traditional exquisiteness in its décor. Comfy beds, spacious rooms, spotless clean bathrooms, beautiful kitchen, and a mini patio that will definitely offer you tranquility after a long day which probably filled with productive unnecessary stunts😂😂😂😝😝😝...and I think you are definitely going to love Penny's fabulous Superhost; MK!

    Mosquitoes in the lounge! Although provided citronella, bug spray, and coils.

    A great host, friendly and really helpful, wanting us to feel at home. The room was big and airy, and the beds comfortable. Everything was clean. Breakfast, laundry and bike rental all 10RM, but tea, coffee and fruit all free. Very communal feel. House is beautiful!

    Not much to not like, and usually there is, but this hostel had everything to make you feel at home.

    A truly classic hostel in a heritage home. Penny's provided everything from shampoo to toothpaste, fruits every morning. I cannot say enough about this unique hostel because it is very spacious and comfortable, and the host was always there to assist when needed. It was indeed a wonderful hostel to stay that l extended another 3 nights 😀. Recommended !!
