8/10 Very good

Worth the money
The location of guesthouse is walkable, only 10-15 minuets to all main attractions (Komtar, Street art and else). Staff were so nice and helpful. Guesthouse and room was simple, cozy and comfortable. bedsheets not so clean on the day we checked in and no towel provided. Anyway, We enjoyed our stay here and would recommend to anyone who is looking for place to stay in George Town.
