Our trip in Penang”

Cleanliness, Relaxing & Convenient

The stay at Magpie Residence make our first visit to Penang a wondrous trip that we can't forget. The staff were wonderfully helpful and friendly (especially Stone!!), residence is well kept and clean. Our family room is spacious and private, quiet and peaceful - very relaxing indeed! The hostel location allow us to enjoy both Georgetown's tourist attractions as well as a taste of the local's livelihood with street food stalls (coffee shops) around us. Not to forget the free shuttle bus (CAT) that runs round Georgetown, easy access from the residence. A place that I will definitely revisit if I do come back. Well done Magpie!!!

Great location, worth the money”

I traveled in 4 (adults) and booked a family room with 2 queen beds. At first when we arrived at Magpie Residence i was kind of doubt myself whether this would be a good place to stay. - The exterior is very warming and makes you feel at home - Very helpful and friendly staff. I stayed at 1st floor which can't be accessed by elevator but Stone helped me to carry my 14 kgs luggage to my room (thanks Stone!) - They served a simple breakfast, free flow drinking water and coffee, tea which is beyond my expectation of a boutique and cheap hotel - I am so satisfied with the room. It is spacious for 4 adults, with 2 queen beds, a small TV and sofa space to watch TV. Room and bathroom are clean. They have basic necessities i.e. towel, hair dryer So far we enjoyed our stay at Magpie Residence and no wonder it has high rating :)

Me and girlfriend absolutely love the Residence. It’s located in the center of Georgetown. And 5mins walk to the UNESCO heritage and street art. The staff are so lovely and they give you good recommendations, you just need to ask. The room is clean and lovely just all we need. Residence isn’t located on the main road or bar , so can get peaceful sleep at night. I’d recommend this to anyone and I would stay here again with no doubt. Thank you Magpie Residence.

This is my second time staying in Magpie Residence. Everything is still good! The staff wait me till 11 pm for late checking in, really appreciate! I hope Magpie can keep maintaining everything in this hotel like what it used to be. I have found the bathroom door are loose, the locker's lock are a little bit stuck when turning and the small fan are not useful at all. The fan is a little bit noisy and not blowing air, hope can make some change for this! Anyway just a little bit suggestion, everything is still so good for me and i will go Magpie again!

Amazing”

Stayed at the magpie residence for 5 nights. Upon arrival warmly greeted and informed we had been upgraded for our stay! Lovely surprise. The King room room was spacious, comfy bed, kettle, large mirror, hairdryer, clothes hanging area and seating with table. Bathroom was large and clean as was the room. The free breakfast was different everyday and delicious. Free tea and coffee also available in the foyer, along with drinking water outside the room. The staff couldn't be more attentive. They do a free washing service for staying 3 nights or more. We had our clothes back the same day. Location is perfect. Just a few minutes walk and you are in the heritage area, also night markets and malls. I can't recommend his place enough. In our 8 month travelling so far this is by far the best place for cost, staff, room and location. Keep up the good work!!

Spotless rooms, amazing staff”

Our room was great; really clean and comfortable, nice and spacious with an extra seating area which really added to the homey feeling. The owner is amazing giving us so much advice on where to go and how to get around and even about our next destination. Everyone was incredibly friendly. The location is about a 10 minute walk from the start of the main tourist area. Some really good local restaurants very close by and about a 5 minute walk to the free CAT bus station which does a route through all of the heritage town. You can take this bus from the ferry terminal when you arrive rather than pay for a taxi like we did. Busses are located just on the left as you approach the road after getting off the ferry and are marked CAT. Get off at stop 8 and then just a short walk to Magpie residence. Thank you for everything we had a great stay and would happily recommend this place.

A great nest on a memorable journey ”

Magpie is perfect for anyone coming to Penang to explore its rich culture and food. If you want to sleep in the room all day, the room is very comfortable. Enough space even for us 5. We have the family suite with 2 bathrooms, which is a very pleasent surprise. Everything is very clean to our standards, it could be aubjective too. Our main purpose is to go places and eat lots of food. So Magpie is perfect to get some nap and to crash at the end of the day. Stone and the girls are very helpful. They are very friendly. All together is a good bargain for the price. Definitely recommended.

Small and personal hostel”

We booked a private room (2 persons) and stayed at Magpie Residence for a few nights. The room was pretty small but just renovated with Wifi and international TV channels. Unfortunately not a proper window with daylight. The bathroom is also kind of small but ok for a short stay. The owner was very nice and helpful which is also why I would recommend this place. Very personal touch and good tips and advice for the island. The breakfast was good and the portions big. The customers were mostly Western backpackers but no partying at night so it was easy to fall asleep. Great area, very quite and local but close to a main street with lots of food stalls and restaurants. Definitely recommend this place for a short stay!

Excellent rooms and staff! Highly recommended!”

I stayed here on my first trip to Georgetown and when I returned to Georgetown a week later, I stayed here again! The pros are: Stone, the guy who owns/ runs the place, is the top chap. He helped me with planning the next parts of my trip advising me which websites to use and how to go about booking the ferry and bus etc The rooms are very clean and there are several common areas inside and out. Free cups of tea and coffee. The Wi-Fi is pretty good and it was fairly reliable during both my stays. There are curtains on the beds and the curtains in the rooms, which results in a good nights sleep. Free laundry! Although situated on a quiet road, the more busier part of the Georgetown is only about 10 minute walk away. The nearest shop is only a couple of minutes away. The cons are: I struggled to think of any. I highly recommend this place and will stay here again if I return to Georgetown.

We really enjoyed our stay at Magpie, so much that we didn't want to leave. We are budget travelers (but not super low budget, so the price for us was perfect). We enjoy a comfortable bed & private room with a private bathroom The free breakfast was great! The owner, Stone goes above and beyond for his guests. He found out that I was vegan and went to the market early in the morning to get me soy milk for my cereal, he gave us tons of tips for places to visit in the area, his staff called us a Grab taxi, and if you stay longer you get free laundry! The private room/bathroom was a good size, bed was comfortable, pillows are good too. The location is a little bit out of the way (maybe 10-15 minutes walk to Little India), but that's what we wanted because we wanted a quiet place to sleep. And man did we ever sleep in A LOT! The breakfast changes every day, which is also really nice so you don't get bored. There is free coffee, tea, snacks in the lobby , water dispensers on each floor.

Good, but some issues”

Magpie is a value-for-money choice when staying in Georgetown. There are many things that need fixing: mostly small maintenance jobs, but then there is the lift that needs replacing immediately. Staff are good, but the manager was away when we were there, and he did not delegate authority to his staff to make any purchases, which is just daft. So the fridge slowly emptied, and breakfast become what is left in the kitchen today. I’d go back, but would need to be assured that the manager at least delegated effectively in his absences.

good, out of expectation”

comfort room for 4 friends. we expect there's 1 double bed, 1 single bed and a sofa bed, but there's another single bed provided. Although it is on floor but more comfort than sofa bed. There's car park reserved also. A bit walking distance from attractions and jalan penang, residence provide bicycle rental tho. Sound proof not so good.
