Awesome place. Perfectly located for all the many attractions Georgetown has to offer. Lots of atmosphere and full of rustic charm. Plenty of nooks and crannies to get away from the maddening crowd if you so wish. The owner; Suresh, goes out of his way to make you feel at home. Why stay anywhere else.

House is 200 years old, its really big, 3 floors, were we stay in family, 2rooms or single, or big huge room for dormity. you get a lot for your money. we cook for free in the coffiehouselike alley outside, we get breakfirst for free, we wash for free. this all made by surish, the smart and funny guy running this fab place. ive travelled all my life, but this is a real home-away for sure. room is simple and, not big but the house has so many spaces for hangout, you can choose to be social or simply not. on rooffloor, we hang laundry and have some small tables to sit while play music or, do yoga or crossfit. we see komtartower, the beautiful mountain from here, the sunsets. On roof is also amazing museum with a locked rooms after one of the owner, a thailady died mysterious. house is in progress, and new rooms might be made, so as an opening of a museum. surish, has showed us all great care during cmo.

We stay 5 days and loved the place! The rooms are not so big and the internet is a bit slow, but the building, the atmosphere and the decoration are amazing! Very friendly staff and excellent location! We'll come back for sure!

The hostel building is 200 years old and doesn’t seem like it has been cleaned for that amount of time either. The room was tiny with no window or door - just a metal car garage style entrance. One of the staff members was incredibly rude, especially when we used ‘the wrong bread’ accidentally as the staff had made no effort to replenish the bread at breakfast. The hostel likes to present the history and ‘character’ of the building to justify a dark, dusty, smelly and creepy environment with the atmosphere of a wake. The location is great, but there are other hostels and hotels in the same location so go to them.

The host is very friendly and helpful. Decoration is quite ancient, or I can say the place already existing that way as a family home for a long time, even before they use it as the hostel. You can smell that in the atmosphere, I swear to god. That's charming to me though since 100 Cintra got its own taste.

My first experience stay at this guesthouse. Reasonable price with simple room. Not advisable to bring kids as they provided outside bathroom and need to respect among every guests that stay over. Room is without air conditioning and TV. Wifi provided. Please do not make noise as it is non sound proof room. Strategic location and nearby to place for good foods by walk.

We stayed here for a week, and it was the ideal base. Nice outside area, where you can enjoy a coffee in the morning and a drink at night. Staff very helpful and the building is impressive. We stayed in the double bedroom and it was fine. The house was clean and free coffee, tea and toast available all day. I would recommend 100 cintra street.

Loved the owner, he helped us a lot and was always very friendly. The room was fine, albeit a little small. Location is fantastic, everything within walking distance (good food, bars, culture etc). Would definitely come back

It is in a rather old than nice building. The rooms are poorly separated from the common area with these curtain-like doors. Provided locks are poor, didn't really looked reliable. The whole building is dusty... The "room" had a mattress and a fan in thats it...(not that I need a TV but a chair would have been nice) Location is good but you can clearly hear if somebody is listening to music in the "room" next to you. Staff was nice. Eventually when we arrived we realised the conditions and we left.
