Red Inn Court, Penang
Rough As Guts Don't Go There
The place is awful ,nothing like the photos and other reviews I read said it would be like.From the windowless, cell, dorm so small and narrow I could barely turn around, the dirty sheets , the freezing aircon that had no controls to regulate it, just made the stay hellish.As for breakfast ,white bread and chemical red jam just don't cut it ,then the filthy cleaning rag laid in the area where the tea and coffee dispencers were simply finished off this hostel of horrors.There is a lot better places around to stay at than this s**t hole

Good location, but that's about it
The place is in a good location, in the heart of Georgetown. They do have tea and coffee from 8.30 to 10.30 am (and sometimes during the day). They have WiFi. It works most of the time. This review is for their so-called "Superior Queen Ensuite" room - it does not deserve the title. The bed is very uncomfortable. It's clearly old and you can feel every spring in it. The air conditioning - well, it's old too. It can't be controlled by the remote provided so there is no way to change the settings. So, it's either too cold with A/C on or too hot with A/C off. There is a fan above the bed. However, for whatever reason it seemed to stop on it's own sometimes. The windows are held together with pieces of paper and duct tape. The light in the bathroom come in only when the door is completely closed (but you really need to open-close a few times to find the exact position for the light to stay on). It looks shabby. The walls could use some work, the fixtures in the bathroom are old and need to be changed/fixed, the sink moves if you put your hand on it, etc. I will not stay there again.
