About Roommates Penang

Housed in a pre-war 2-storey “Straits Settlement” style shop house. It is strategically located inside the Inner Core of UNESCO Heritage Site and is within walking distance to all the touristic attractions and Penang famous Street Food .

It has a carved timber solid door, gable end, air vents and a air-well(Chinese influence) . A five foot-way for pedestrians to walk, away from the hot tropical climate and to shelter if it rains. A typical Chinese house will have an altar at the entrance on the right hand corner for the burning of incense and offerings during festive season.

The place has been renovated and converted into a hostel with 8-bed mixed dorm, 4-bed male or female dorm to cater to budget travelers and back packers at affordable price. The high ceiling, wooden floors , air-well are being retained in compliance with the Georgetown Heritage guidelines.
