Homely Atmosphere with Lovely Ambience
Basic Amenities, Cleanliness, Help and Guidance
Small Rooms
a very nice accomodation with great price and central location. accesible to all main public transport points. the host nadina, was a very pleasing personality always eager to help you and guide you in all possible way. generally thronged by western/eurorpean yooung hitch-hikers, and is the best place to live near china town and kl sentral if you are visiting kl as tourist. stay here to have a good nights rest and be ready the next day for adventures and trips around kl.

Not as advertised
Friendly staff
Hotel is nothing like the photos
this hotel looks nothing like the photos. it is an old run down building. they added a few walls to create rooms and didn't bother with a proper paint job. the toilets were constantly leaking and the conditions of the bathrooms were horrible. they advertised a "private" room, but it was anything but private. the ac is shared with the next room by a giant hole cut in the top of the wall. when the other room puts the light on it shines into your "private" room. this does nothing to stop the noise from the next room. also, the room was litterally 6 feet from the common tv room. with people coming and going 24hrs a day it is impossible to get any rest. i will say the staff were extreemly welcoming and friendly, but this place is not as advertised!

Great place to stay
clean, friendly people, low cost
a bit hard to find where it is.
friendly people. our trip was disrupted because our booking failed to get through to the hotel. however the people was nice enough to allow us to stay for the nite free at the dormitory even though eventually we declined and pay for it. place was clean. people are friendly. overall good place to stay at a budget

for budget travelers
cheap, friendly and helpful staff, free wifi, near train station
a bit difficult to find, shared bathrooms and showers
about 5 to 10 minute walk to train station and only one station away from KL sentral ... very close to petaling street and chinatown where you can buy cheap stuff ... LCCT has buses to chinatown but I do not recommend you take that if you stay at this guesthouse because you will have to walk a long way to get here (particularly if you have luggage) ... better to take the bus to KL sentral and get on the train and get off at pasa seni station ...

"Travel alone in malysia"
price is good
breakfast is a only bread and coffe
Chinna town is a shopping center and klcc too. I love this travel in malaysia. But it is quite expensive more thailand.

Wonderful staff!
wonderful staff! so friendly and helpful! good location
old building, iffy bathrooms, "breakfast" was only toast
were very gracious and refunded some of my money (my first night was in a dorm rather than the private I had booked).

location with many conveniences
friendly personnels
4 toilets with only one working heater
at first, i was quite worried with the surrounding environment as i was travelling with 2 children. i was surprise that the location is so convenience to access to the train stations and shopping and eating areas. most important thing is my children love it. it feel like home with no curfew and retriction. quiet street and away from the main road.

Welcoming and Friendly
Good location - Short walk to Chinatown markets, Free Wifi
Bathrooms could do with a bit of a makeover
overall good price, friendly staff. rooms were cleaned, mopped and clean linen put on the beds. free wifi is a real bonus

Such warmth - like you r w a relative!
Great location near to both monorail and lrt
Toilets sometimes cannot be flushed...no toilet paper!
lady owner and her family are super warm. makes it feel like ur with a relative! apart from the toilets which sometimes cant be flushed, lack of hot water even though there was a water heater, everything is cool. air-cons are shared so if you have a noisy neighbour, tough luck! location is great but neighbouring chinatown can still be a bit seedy with men lurking below dimly lit shophouses - solo lady travellers be careful! that aside lovely lovely lovely :) i'll be back!
