A great place to stay!
Cocoa Mews is the perfect place to stay while on Penang Island. Located in Little India, it’s a short walk from the pier and close to the bus lines. The accommodations are simple but clean with a shared kitchen area and a nice patio from which you can watch the bustling street vendors. The host, Howie, is passionate, experienced and full of smiles. He will share with you the island’s history, culture, walk you through the neighborhood and even show you where to buy cheap beer! There are 13 rooms and even though the walls are thin, everyone is very considerate which ensured a quiet night. I would highly recommend Cocoa Mews to anyone traveling to Penang!!

The nicest place we've ever stayed.
This place has the best vibes I have ever been surrounded by. Room wise there was a major damp & mould issue and the bed was super uncomfortable with springs digging into our backs, but it really seemed irrelevant. The two chaps that ran it were super helpful giving us an abundance of things to do during our stay. Unfortunately I was ill so didn't get to go out and explore but my partner did. They have a free drinks and food section, bread, daily baked good, meals. I felt so welcome. We would definitely come back.

Very enjoyable stay
Originally booked for three nights, stayed an extra two. Fantastic location in little India, you can walk out to most things in Georgetown. The staff are all lovely and really helpful and one day put on a delicious local breakfast for everyone staying.

Good stay. Value for money
Hosts howie and arthur are friendly. I stayed over xmas eve and xmas. They hosted a xmas potluck party. Free food, free drinks, awesome conversations. Atmosphere was great. Room is rather small. Aircon is cold. Water heater works. But footsteps can be heard in this refitted colonial house if you stay on the 2nd floor. Location is good. Very central. Minutes walk to the bus stop and to some great eats.

Very Good 8.0
Friendly staff and situated right in the middle of Little India. Everything is easily accessible. The floor is made out of wood so whenever someone is walking outside the room or the floor above, a crackling wood sound will be heard. Likewise, the walls don't block that much sound so you'll hear some other rooms' noises.
