This is a Trusted Review. Why?

102 buses will get you there but they are rare, but still better than paying the Rm 54.70 taxi fare. The bus does not give change so try and get a Rm 5 note to pay for the Rm 2.70 journey. The bus goes through George Town and upto 30 minutes later you will see a large white block building on your right with a Tesco sign. Get off next stop, cross the road and 100 yards up a slight incline you will see Jalan Hashim on your right with a big food court (open late afternoon) on the corner and a Michellin sign across the road. One hundred yards and you will see the two floor house on your right. Parking is OK. If you are a back packer you have stayed at many similar places. Easy and friendly check in. You get a towel and toilet paper but no soap or shampoo. Basic clean room with air conditioning and free wifi. Tesco is a leisurely 15 minute walk away and I was told is open till 11 pm. The place is quiet at night except for Chinese New Year when you get a week of very noisy fireworks going off at night. Free cold breakfast in the TV room. Free coffee all day. A good sandy beach a few minutes walk away but drunks use it at night so some beer bottles on it and a few bits of broken glass. 101, 102 and 103 buses will get you to George Town (2 Rm) and when coming back, ask for Tesco's. Tip: If you are not on a tight budget, check out prices for the nearby Naza Talyya Hotel which is luxury starting at as little as twice as much as the Baan Talay.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

There is a 3 Story Tesco's round the corner with McDonalds, KFC and other fast food restaurants downstairs, Floor 2 for all your bits and bobs and a money exchange and on floor 3 an actual tescos, its huge! The beach is a short walk (about 3 mins) behind a beautiful hotel who let you use their pool and have lovely food for a small fee. At the end of the road is a food market selling lots of different Malay and Western cuisine. The actual guest house is clean, tidy with friendly staff and guests. KD your host even drove us to the airport cause the taxi transfer was a no show. We were only there for a few days but missed it from the moment we left :)

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

What a lovely place to stay, the owners make you feel like one of the family. We have been travelling for 5 months now and this has easily been the best place. If you are planning to come to Penang stay here. Great atmosphere, great service, nice location. Penang with all its resorts and hotels are lucky to have a place like this. Very good value for money. We stayed an extra 2 nights just because we loved it so much. Enjoy.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a good time staying here. It was out of the main city of Georgetown so it was a bit quieter. For the price, I was very happy. Something that could be worked on is the air conditioning, as my room was extremely hot without it. But overall good value for money and the hosts are very friendly and helpful and they make you feel right at home.
