Affordable Youth Hostel in George Town Penang Malaysia



I am sure you know what we’re talking about here,


That moment when you crawl into cool, clean, crisp bedsheets, melt into plush feather pillows and cosily envelop your curled toes with the end of a blanket… There, you lay basking in the glory of it all, letting the wave of relief wash over you as you drift off into a deep sleep.

Listen to what others have to say about us.

The hostel feels very new and the beds are amazingly comfy. Upstairs there is a beautiful lounge where you can sit and relax and have breakfast in the morning. Everything was very clean both at the breakfast and in the room. The staff is amazing, if you have any questions whatever it is they will try to help you. They even changed my bus ticket into a boat ticket. I even needed something at the pharmacy and they asked to get it for me. It is an amazing hostel and the staff make it even more amazing!

Clear communication with host leading up to the stay. Greeted by all the staff on arrival and throughout the stay. Everyone was super friendly and accommodating. They went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. The guest house is in a great location walking distance to some of the best food in Penang. The room was very clean and comfortable, the lounge area is stunning and there was always coffee, tea and water available. We really enjoyed our stay and would suggest this place over any other! Thanks again Tido for an amazing time.

The stay at Tido is amazing. We are greeted with smiles and friendliness of the entire Tido family. The place is central and walkable. The room is pleasant, clean and we had a good night sleep. The bathroom is clean and well equipped. The cherry on top of the cake will be the complimentary breakfast. Cereals, milk and toast are served, just enough to give you energy to hunt for Georgetown’s street food.

Me and my friends had a great two nights’ stay as the place was neat and clean. The hostel is in a good location as delicious food stalls were within walking distance and the staff at the help desk were very helpful. Will definitely come back on my next trip! P.S. Check out the lounge! Really cool space to hang out.

Very Impressive Budget Hostel

I stayed for one night and have been very much impressed by this new budget hostel that has opened in Feb 2016. The reception staff was very helpful and courteous. The room and the bathrooms were spic and span. Facilities are basic but suited to a budget hotel. I found the price for my room to be extremely reasonable.
