Do you ever miss the good old days when Asian hostels weren’t all perfectly decked out in identical Ikea decor with the same Instagrammable cafe’s serving crap instant coffee to digital nomads? The days when staying in hostels felt a bit more adventurous?
I recently discovered Angmoh Hostel in George Town, Penang, and my stay there felt like a little bit of a throwback, but in a good way! Angmoh Hostel is in an old antique shophouse right near the main downtown area of George Town, and while the facilities aren’t brand new and sparkling, the hostel makes up for it with character and heart. I met good people and had good talks with the staff and guests! There’s also tons of awesome hippie murals all over the inside walls! What more could you want from a budget bed in Penang?
