Ladies Only Queen’s Hostel- Penang, Malaysia

October 27, 2015

The ‘all-women’ concept is not new, in fact many countries have adopted this concept and opened up ladies-only establishments. Penang is the latest to follow on the well-received idea with Queen’s Hostel.


It is the first of such accommodation in the island to offer a protected respite and tranquility for girls. Aptly named, the hostel is located along the historic Queen Street, surrounded by famous local eateries. It is just a 2-minute walk to Peranakan Mansion and the Goddess of Mercy Temple, a 10-minute walk to Chulia Street and the jetty clans. It is also within 5 to 10 minutes walk to George Town’s UNESCO Heritage Sites such as Masjid Kapitan Keling, Khoo Kongsi and more, for great site-seeing.


Staying in Queen’s hostel allows you to connect to other travelers who are in similar situations.  The mellow vibe you feel allows you to relaxed and re-charged after a day of exploring and sight-seeing.  With comfortable beds and like-minded individuals surrounding   you, staying in Queen’s Hostel will make you want to stay longer than you expected!
