Hostel-like, lots of young people (although not all). Very basic accommodation, shared bathrooms. All in all very pleasant though. Staff and fellow lodgers were pleasant - the place was nicely decked out for Xmas.
Not that they can do anything about it but we dislike those bathrooms where the whole bathroom is the shower-stall. Everything else about this place you could totally accept, even the shared bathrooms because they were close by, clean and ample. But the toilet seat is always wet, etc. because the shower head is simple over the toilet and sink. I didn't love this. Still, for the price and location and general attitude and comfort level, two thumbs up.

So making it with mere seconds to spare I mounted my white thrown for what felt like an eternity cursing my five block journey all the while. Needless to say a long shower and early bedtime was what followed in hopes that my fast and furious reaction wouldn't slow me down the next day as there was so much food and city to still be tasted and explored.
... city. The rest of Penang is just as laid back and easy to explore. Day two we upgraded our bicycles for mopeds, so we could bomb it around the Island -- taking in Penang Hill and the drive-through botanic gardens. Even catching a bus up to the national park, where we could trek to a secluded beach through steamy jungle, was a breeze... Which kind of made up for the fact that there was absolutely no breeze in the jungle. I've never been so ...
... shower we had a bite to eat and headed over to Ged and Kathy's hotel. We even managed to find an H&M on route, where Kate just 'had to' get a few things. After having a lovey afternoon tea and the first proper cup of tea for 7 weeks we spent the evening having a good catch up over drinks and dinner. The next day we went to see some of the famous sights of Penang. Our taxi driver suggested that we should go and see a teak mansion owned by a ...
