run down guesthouse, tiny room

the location
It wasn't as it stated on agoda like 10m, it is a tiny room that not bigger than 6m. That was not that much of a problem if we knew, but in a way we felt cheated. The bed was bad, as you lay down you can feel the spring of the mattres. Pillow was smelly, in fact the entire room was smelly. Bathroom was broken, there is a seated toilet but without toilet seat. Everything was wrong. When we checked in there is only one towel so we asked for another and we got onefrom them that full of holes. We booked for three days but we left the next day. When we return the key to the receptionist she asked why we check out so early? So we told her that we thought its a terrible place to stay and she gave us a stink eye.

Location, Price, Bathroom Inside Room
Actually, it is pretty good. It location and price is good. But Somehow the staff still ask for RM 5 GST that I already payed on AGODA. I've stayed on other guesthouse and they never asked me for the Goods and Service Tax.

BAD, it was a LONG night. I was soooo LUCKY
There is a noisy air conditioner, but the staffs don't change room for us. They said they don't have spare room, but I saw someone check in after that. "Try to sleep, and you won't hear anything during your sleeping". Yeah, they is what they told me.

Give Back RM10 GST tax

location -
Verify that, when you book any hotels and at checkout page, look at the "service charges and fees" part it shows all taxes including the 6% GST and Agoda fee should already be included in the final price you pay to Agoda reservation. Beware of this operator, I believe they also run Royal Palm Lodge in Jalan Bukit Bintang. The room was without faucet (asked to use shower head???), bed linens smell, muggy and moldy, soap scums on walls and floors all over the bathroom, beware cracked toilet seat, very noisy a/c fan, etc.

Price,location,free breakfast
It's okay though initially I was informed that it's only 10myr per person additional but they charge 20myr. Maybe because we transferred to a different hotel

Review for Checkmate Guest House

Good location, private room/toilet, helpful staff
It was pleasant, and I enjoyed my stay. I hope the plumbing problem in my toilet will be solved soon. All in all, it's a good value for money and I will likely stay here again in future. Had no time to sample the breakfast during my stay.

Value for money, good location

Good location, Good wifi
It bases at center of Bukit Bintang. It takes 2 minutes to go to Jalan Alor (food street) & 5 minutes to Pavilon Shopping Center. You have to pay 10 MYR and 20 MYR for deposit. Room is quite small but clean and has private restroom. I think it's okay for backpackers.

Dark and Creepy

Located close to the famous Jalan Alor hawker food
Booked and paid for 2 nights but checked out after the first night. Premise has a dark and creepy setting from the reception hall to the stairs to the corridor to the room. Toilet wall has moss and shower head is too old to be functioning properly. Didn't see any other backpackers staying here. Picked the wrong stay.
