I stayed here in 2014 and Oct 2016. This place is reliable and cheap. No thrills but not that bad for the price. OWNER/STAFF: little english, maybe alcoholics but also they cause no problems PRICE: very cheap. 35-40 ringgits for a full size bed for two in a private room. 40 with shower WIFI: so-so depending how many people are...

We came to georgetown and did not have a place to stay and by walking down the street (love lane) we saw this hostel and when we came in we felt so welcomed that we decided to stay. The room has the basics... we took the one with the bathroom and its ok. The price is nice as we are... More

Very well located in central Penang : everything is nearby, especially night market for cheap street food. Quiet rooms with private bathroom (but shared toilets !). Simple, clean. Friendly owners; Perfect for budget travelers and backpackers.

Good value @ 35MYR for a very simple fan double. Toilet was a long walk away amongst dubious settings. Room was sparse, with smashed doors on wardrobe and other room doors had punched holes in them. No WiFi in rooms as indicated by manager, only in the lobby with heavy smoking staff. Another guest reported she had been robbed here.... More

First, the price is great. It is maybe 15 meters off Love Lane and half the price and nice rooms. The shared toilet is in the first floor which is a bit of an inconvenience if you are on the second floor. Wifi works best by the reception area. Owners are nice. There are two rooms that back the old... More

This is our second visit to Pin Seng. First time was great - clean, cheap rooms, friendly owner and, most important for us, somewhere to park our tandem. This visit however is not so good. There is a whining, grizzling toddler hanging around all day and last night between the hours of midnight and five a.m. one of the long... More

We have been staying in Pin Seng hotel for 3 nigts. The rooms have a backpacker standard: a twin or two loose beds with thin matress, a sink, a small table and a big fan hanging on the ceiling. Rooms are clean. Upstairs you will have the switch for lights and fan just outside your room. We changed rooms after... More

I was in this hotel last week after meeting some backpackers. It's a very cheap hotel in the China Town part of Georgetown, Penang, Malasya. If you have no money to spend, go here but be aware... Some rooms have no windows that can be closed. This means that a lot of musquitos will come to you at night. Also,... More
