What we say: 3.5 stars

Located on what is arguably Georgetown's most fashionable street, Ryokan hides a large, sleek, modern hostel behind its traditional grey shophouse facade. Four- or six-person person dorms are simple but functional with hardwood floors, air-con, chunky white bunk-beds, personal lockers, reading lights and ‘charging stations’ for your electronic devices.

Prices depend on proximity to the clean polished concrete bathrooms and whether or not you care for a window.

For a few extra ringgit, women can upgrade to the four-bed ‘Chic Dorm’ with its cerise feature-wall, makeup mirror and all-important hairdryer. A few swish private double rooms come with air-con, flatscreen TV and king bed, and these offer stellar value when compared to most of Georgetown's "boutique hotels".

Ryokan also boasts plenty of lounge space with bean bag seating and a huge LCD TV, free WiFi that works great, an affordable and lively bar and a cafe that serves a small but quality range of Western snacks, sandwiches and burgers, as well as breakfasts which come complimentary for guests. If you're a musician, comedian or magician, you can earn a free nights stay by performing to the crowd for two hours -- but if you're not actually practised at one of these performing arts, please save everyone an earache and don't, after downing one too many bottles of Tiger, attempt to sing karaoke just for the free bed.
