Nothing much to say cause I stayed here for like 8 hours only. The bed is clean and so is the bathroom. The interior is like British old building, kinda spooky at nite. There is a guesthouse next to it. I think it’s called Red Inn. There is also a nice hangout place called Reggae. I dunno if that is a guesthouse too or just a café but I can see pool table inside it and hear its music from the street.
In Love Lane corner, you can find many food vendors even in late nights. I like the Old Trafford Burgers, across 7-eleven.. Ow.. I missed that one. Their hot dog with egg tasted really good!!
The hostel staffs are extremely helpful although I was upset that they couldn’t help me getting the wifi access. I needed to do mobile check-in. Anyway they managed to wake me up to catch my flight ^^. I haven’t sync my alarm with Malay time so it was set up an hour late ><” I can’t thank them enough for that.
photo : I took few photos but the result is not good so some photos below I took from hostelworld.com and oldpenang.com website.
