    Howie and Arthur were the best hosts we had throughout our three week trip in Malaysia. They were incredibly kind and had excellent recommendations/were great to talk to. It really felt like a home staying at cocoa mews.

    Love it & Extended My Stay!!

    I had a great experience during my initial stay at Cocoa Mews that I decided to extend and stay two more nights. The guesthouse is centrally located in the heart of Little India, close to the ferry, local attractions and bus lines. The rooms are clean and common areas comfortable. The host, Howie, is passionate and always available to tell you about the area, give you ideas for local activities and share with you local delicacies. It’s overall a great place to stay while enjoying Penang Island.

    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!!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The food provided in the morning was lovely and stayed there all day, so good for a snack later on! Free tea and coffee all day too. The location was great, close to everything we needed with a bus stop just over the road. There are also tonnes of shops and places to eat around this area. Shared bathrooms were always clean. Only slightly negative point I have is that our room was dull and dingy because it had no window but not a problem if you’re constantly sightseeing anyway!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Staff was beyond nice. First night was in a room with window, wayyyyy too noisy and bed was really bad, super lumpy. Second room was better (it had two beds) one was ok the other was completely caved in. This room smelled bad like cat pee and cigarettes( probably from the ventilation system) soap for washing your hands after going to the bathroom would be nice. Loved the kitchen and breakfast area
