    This is a really cool place to stay. the staff are really friendly and very helpful. You walk through their lounge and up the stairs to the room, bathrooms and balcony. The signs around the place are really novel but very helpful!

    Babas is just across the road from the beach with a big balcony to sit and chat. We had a load of laundry done which is RM6 per 1kg which was really handy so we didn't have sit and to do it! They sell water, beer and other cool drinks here.

    The room is pretty big and very basic, it has all that you need a comfy bed, clean sheets, a desk and some hooks to hang your clothes. We chose a double room with a fan for RM50 and are very happy, so we are staying another night here! The bathrooms are like a wet room and are very clean with a powerful hot shower .Oh and there are NO bedbugs!! So over all a fantastic place to stay and i would recommend it. They do have rooms with aircon that are a little more expensive.

    We found them on the internet and called them from George Town to see if they had space. The lady gave us directions and which bus to catch. The bus was an hours journey and cost RM2.50 pp.

    Baba Guesthouse lived up to all the reviews I read. It had a friendly atmosphere. Right next to the beach. The Chinese family who own the guesthouse are so helpful and kind. During my stay i didn't see one cockroach although when outside my room having some drinks with some people I met, there were mice/rats scurring across. If you don't mind that then it's worth the stay. There is a mosque near by, which I have been told blare out the morning prayer very loudly but i didn't hear anything!! Overall a good place, i liked it. Not sure if i'd go back, but i enjoyed my experience there!!

    Our bus journey to Penang was uneventful also, thank god. The buses seem to be definitely a lot safer over here. As we arrived into Penang, which is north west of Malaysia, it started to absolutely pour down. Its still obviously the wet season here as it rains quite a bit and when it does, it lashes!!! We got off our bus but still had to …

    ... few weeks back in Penang would be an appealing option. It seems that we have become a hybrid traveller come ex-pat, we’ve not come to a complete standstill but we are certainly not in a mad rush to explore or move on to new places. During this first tranche of living as ‘wanderers’, there’s a few key things we have learnt:-- don’t overdo sightseeing and exploring. There’s only so much history and ...

Once the anchor was down and bedded in, the boys jumped in swimming, in fact Elliott did an impressive dive off the boat straight in which Tommy got a great shot of. After wards we shared dinner and sat having a few beers enjoying each others company, ...

Will check out at 1pm, then to restaurant for lunch (nasi goreng for me, nasi Lemak for D) and then off to the airport. We have lounge access in Penang which will be nice too. Will publish this now as the end of our trip. If anything exciting happens will update later. Update! Lunch awesome, see ...

    ... We fought with them telling them that we had paid for our room and weren't going anywhere while they continued to tell us that they wouldn't check us in. After we told them again that we had a reservation through expedia (that had to be honoured by the hostel) the guy we were arguing with said “oh, are you Tanya?”. Once it was established that we were the people with the flippin' reservation they checked us in ...
