    It was good, clean and staff were helpful, a bit far out of the way though

    Just the location

  • Family with children

    Package deal comes with breakfast plus free theSun newspaper (self-collect from the reception counter).

    The one-way road system of Macalister Road - it's this so-near-yet-so-far experience driving - to get to the location of the hotel.

  • Family with children

    It seems to be a safe and quiet place to stay, The receptionist was friendly and well-mannered. Ample parking space. Still recommend it because the price is reasoable,

    (i) I stayed for 2 days at YMCA and needed WIFI for my work. The WIFI was not working and the receptionist doesnt seems to know why. Only after a few inquiries did someone tell me that wifi was under repair, Until the day I left there is still no wifi. (ii) Penang is very famous for its food but your complimentary breakfast is way out of expectation.It's way below the average standard in Penang. My suggestion is if your hotel cant provide a Penang-standard breakfast, then please do not provide supplimentary breakfast. Do you Google map to find the right direction to go to the hotel. Many parts of Macalister Road is one-way, Google Earth shows a road without indication of which direction to drive. The triple room is too small for 3 person. The triple room I stayed in Taiping budget hotel was much bigger.

    good value for money

    our AC didn't have remote control and we had to get staff to help every time.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    Clean and Tidy

    I like this Hotel though, however, for such facilities provided, they should lower the price a little bit more.

    A affordable hotel with good necessary facilities

  • Group of friends

    The room was very clean, as was the private bathroom. Air conditioning working and effective, and rooms kept noise out very well.

    The hostel is not in a very good location if you are looking to spend much time in George Town. Not many bus routes go past the YMCA, and Jln Macalistair is deceptively long!!

    I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my worst enemies. The location is horrible (25 minutes by bus to the city...). In the morning they serve you cold eggs and old toast for breakfast. In your room you can smell the sweat of the people who are playing badminton in the gym. And besides that, it's very noisy! We're backpackers, so pretty used to sleeping in bad accomodations, but YMCA Penangs has been really one of our worst....

  • Family with children

    comfortable stay, friendly servicing staff and the hotel location is accesible to other interesting place.

    is value for money,comfortable for college students like us,helpful of the staffs here.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Very clean and the fact that the Church was just outside made it feel safe to sleep. :-))

    Nothing except that it was difficult to check in at the beginning as the staff could not locate my name and that was a problem.

  • Older travelers
    6.8

    Good value for moneyand reasonable service and essential equipment such as electric kettle and towels. Size of room is adequate.

    The carpet should be deep cleaned as I and my wife both experienced bitten by fleas for all the 3 nights that we stayed while working on my netbook computer on the desk. The internet explorer regularly disconnected while you are using it.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    Good ambience,feel at home,. Wi fi facility

    Rooms are small, and so also the breakfast
