Great location, in the midst of clubs/pubs

location, in the busy Bukit Bintang area
I cannot remember how many times I have stayed in Pondok Lodge since my very first time in 2007. I go to KL a few times a year, I will stay at Pondok Lodge. The staff (especially the manager, Andrew) are friendly and helpful. For only RM25 for a dorm bed, it includes breakfast (toast + coffee). Location is ideal due to its close proximity to the popular Bukit Bintang walk. If you like clubbing, it is located in the midst of the pubs/clubs area, you can drink whole night till 4am. If you sleep early, then this place may be a bit noisy for you, as you may be able to hear the music from the pubs in some of the rooms.

location, in the busy Bukit Bintang area
Pondok Lodge is a great place to stay if you like night life. It is located in the midst of the pubs/clubs area in Bukit Bintang. It is also located near to the shopping malls (within 15 minutes walk) like Lot 10, Sungei Wang, BB Plaza, Pavillion, Times Square, Low Yat Plaza and many more. Experience the local delicacies at Jalan Alor which is less than 5 minutes walk away.

Great Strategic Hotel for Nightlife

SPacious room and Comfy Home Like
It is a good hotel to stay in if you are budgetting your trip - it is a home stay sort of place with a hostel/dorm feel to it. Your toilet and bathroom is placed outside of your room, and you have a common eating and pantry area. There is also a common lounge on the first and second floor. When you are looking for this hotel, it is situated at a corner of the building, the main door is on the second floor of the building as you would enter on the side. Very small signage of the hotel and is a little hidden so make sure your eyes are alert enough to spot the hotel.
Nightlife Tip: Very close to nightlife - bars, clubs, bistros and is easy if you want about 3 minutes walking distance to the nightlife location.

great location, in the midst of clubs/pubs

location, in the busy Bukit Bintang area
the location of pondok lodge is superb, in the busy bukit bintang area, oly 5-10 minutes walk to the nearest shopping malls (like sungei wang, bb plaza, lot 10 and pavillion). it is only 3-5 minutes walk from the food street, jalan alor, whereby you can eat all the local delicacies at a reasonable price by the roadside. if you dislike roadside stalls, this may not be your choice. if you like clubbing, this is the place for you. if not, this place can be annoying to you, because the music from the pubs/clubs is so loud that it may disturb your sleep. usually, on weekends, the noise only subsides by 3am or 4am. i was there in christmas eve, the celebration lasted till 5am. nevertheless, pondok lodge still offers the best value of money in kl city, i will go back to pondok lodge if i go to kl again.
Shopping Tip: go to pavillion (12 minutes walk) and ejoy shopping there. other shopping malls nearby are bb plaza (6 minutes walk), sungei wang (8 minutes walk), lot 10 (8 minutes walk), low yat (10 minutes walk, for electronic goods), times square (12 minutes walk).

Okey hotel

Good location, close to everything
We stayed here 4 nights instead of 2, The price was ok, comparing to hotel's location. Well, there are bars on the same street, but as our room was in 3rd floor and no windows, then not so much noise could be heard to the room. Walking distance to shopping mals, petronas towers, KL-tower, and china town. Lot of places to eat around there also!
