What we say: 4 stars

Opened in 2008, Old Penang offers solid budget to flashpacker accommodation and is very popular -- with good reason. The majority of the offerings are dorm beds but there are some private single and double rooms as well, including some with private bathrooms, but most opt for the dorms. Dorms are available in female-only and mixed and the wooden framed beds are solid and of a good standard. Shared bathrooms are clean. This hostel has a large interior common area with plenty of seating, makes for a good spot to escape the heat and has a good vibe to it. Free WiFi throughout and friendly staff round out a good deal. The private bathroom rooms go very quickly, so we suggest booking in advance for those.
