Ryokan @ Muntri Street
Ryokan's first hostel in Malaysia is located at Muntri Street, Georgetown Penang. Fulfilling everything a flashpacker needs, this boutique hostel redefines the true meaning of flashpacking by providing affordable accommodation in a chic environment which guarantees fun, comfort and security.
The name Ryokan is derived from the traditional 'Japanese Inn' which originated in the Edo period (1603-1868), the age when shoguns from the Tokugawa family and samurai were chopping heads in Japan. The traditional 'Inns' are known for their refined design, excellent cuisine and an all-round cultural heritage. The concept is unique because it's adopted from the 'Japanese Inn' but blended with the modern day features of chic boutique hotels. By providing hi-tech facilities, top-end comfort and exceptional design, it aims to serve flashpackers and other budget travellers according to their demands. This boutique hostel is also playing a role in preserving the environment by implementing eco-friendly features.
