                  comfortable room, breakfast available.

                  The location is pretty good, although I had to ask around first to find the guest house. The room was smaller than I expected, but nice enough to stay for one or two nights. But they serve breakfast, which is quiet nice. The staffs were quiet helpful too.

                  Very strategically located in the heart of KL, walking distance to shopping area and nightlife spots. The rooms are small but clean and comfy. Air-con and heater in excellent working condition. The restroom is small but at the price paid, it's value for money. Will definitely stay again.

                  Location because in bukit bintang

                  We were originally shown to a very small room with no window which we thought at the time didn't match the photos. We complained and were upgraded to an acceptable room with a window. Staff were wonderful. For a place to sleep in the middle of all the action in KL this place was good for the price. Not for the over fastidious traveller, more for the laid back traveller who only wants a place to sleep in a great location.

                  I don’t feel safe at all. All employees are Bangladesh men and some men just sit at the lobby and in front of the hotel. No exact parking space. The room was smelly. The bathroom was smelly. The bed was smelly. At night, there’re a lot of prostitutes at the area. Pros: Near to convenient store, eateries and night life.

                  It is hard to beat the value here. Plain simple n a bit run down, but really great friendly staff in a great central location. Some noisey bars and late night music, but you can walk to all food tastes, shopping and MRT. Breakfast very basic and ran out quickly, but for the money hard to complain. Most rooms don't have windows, but I was lucky to have one which made my 3 day stay more enjoyable.

                  No soap in bathroom, no toilet roll. At least these are basic necessities for guests. Mattress and pillows relatively old looking and untidy. Still tolerable as solo traveller.

Its very good indeed, in less than $10 a day, you got Air cond, fridge and kettle to boil water. And you know, it is not the hostel but the guest house which is u have your privacy room also.

                  For The Budget Traveler”

                  Location location location

                  I basically needed a cheap room with a bed, bathroom & internet, they had all three. It's one of the cheapest hotels you'll find with these 3 features in Bikut Bintang so a rational traveler can accept the hotel is a little run down, it's possible to do a lot worse for more money. There's a fantastic 24hour restaurant next door & the wifi connection is good. It's not glamorous but if that's what you want then pay $50+ a night.

                  Don't book here”

                  I arrived in KL at 11pm, got to the hotel around midnight. The staff is not accomodating. They just give you your key, and it's up to you to find your room. The rooms are soo small and dingy. The pillows smelled of mold. It was disgusting. But I was tired. I just slept. Then left.

                  The first room they put us in had black mold covering the entire bathroom and one corner of the the room. we changed rooms to one that was not much better. Dirty, smell, fridge not working. Old unwashed bedding that had my wife and I sleeping in our cloth's, bug bites in the night and to top it off at 2 in the morning we were fortunate enough to have the free entertainment of one girl screaming at the top of he lungs at her customer for in excess of an hour. Never again as there are much better values for your money all around the area.

                  Good location, Clean room,

                  This guest house was a budget place and you didn't get any extra things. The room I had was with a double bed, a window, a small fridge, and a bathroom adjourning the room. The window could not lock and was a bit concerned about someone climbing in, but it was ok, as it was on the second floor. The room had a safe, which i asked for someone to unlock it so I could use it, but no one ever came to do that. There was no toilet paper, but there was a hose you could use. There was no bar soap, but was a container for liquid soap. The shower did have hot water, so that was nice. The breakfast each morning consisted of one hard boiled egg, 2 pieces of toast and either coffee or tea. They had a nice assortment of jam to put on the toast. All in all it was ok and you get what you paid for. It was close to one of the monorail stops, and closet to many restaurants.

                  only one, good location

                  We paid for one night stay for a double room, it seems nice while viewing the photos shown in the description but when we reach there, it was actually just a lot of printed picture related to babylon stick on the wall but nothing. Our room was at the first floor and when we passed by the corridor of ground floor, we could smell some weird smell (It seems like the smell of place left abandoned for a long time). The room is small, a bit smelly and dusty, extremely small toilet with broken shower head. The blanket is smelly and pillow is yellowish. When I moved the table beside the bed, I could see dust covered the floor with some cigarettes butt. I would not recommend anyone to stay here. Just add about Rm10 then you can find a way better guesthouses or hotels at bukit bintang area.
