    Fantastic service”

    I booked a single room for one night, only to be told that all the single rooms were fully occupied. Fortunately, they upgraded me to a double room for free. I kid you not, it was the most comfortable double room ever even for a fan room (it must be better for the AC room). The staffs are great and friendly, and if you are an extravert, you will fit right in place. The communal area is open air so you will get plenty of fresh air in the middle of the city. Do remember to buy your own soap and shampoo, and if you plan on cooking, your own groceries. Cleanliness is really tip top and I would recommend Step Inn so much to all fellow solo travellers. Kudos.

    Good value for money”

    Clean, conveniently located hostel. Close to LRT and bus station, lots of eateries nearby, walking distance to most sights. Fan room was adequate, especially with window. My only gripe was that the outside terrace was also a smoking area, ruining a nice place to relax.

    We come back to this place every time we go to KL during our several traveling months around Asia. Staff is friendly. Building is little bit old but rooms and shared bathrooms are clean. Ideal for backpackers.

    Above average”

    Location and staff is ok, bud the building and facilities are old. Beds are uncomfortable. No Music, no atmosphere. Because windows and doors are open in every floor, reception, Lobby and kitchen, makes the building very hot except for the room I stayed where I had air-conditioning, and opens the field for different types of mosquitos wich eat you alive. I asked 2 members of the staff, what to do for the mosquitos, they both laughed without offering any remedy or showing empathy. I left poisoned and sick with a very unpleasant feeling. Not suggestable for people that soffer warm temperatures and mosquitos bites.

    Awesome Hostel!!”

    This place is everything a backpacker hostel should be. It’s Cheap, cold AC, fast Wifi, close to transit, cheap lockers and laundry service. Very social so good for solo traveler to meet ppl. Only cons are the water doesn’t get that hot and breakfast is a little weak (just toast). But it’s free so who can complain? FYI Price doesn’t always match Agoda and the one guy who works there tried to argue with me about it. Also it’s cheap/easy to get here from KLIA by taking the red STAR bus to Pudu Sentral, which is like across the street. Highly recommend this place.

    Very friendly stuff. Good location, near Chinatown and walkable distance to the Petronas towers. The breakfast is just coffee/tea and toasts, but you have coffee and tea available all day and there is a fridge. They do not give you towels.

    Good atmosphere, but small rooms ”

    The staff are friendly and easily to get along with. The breakfast is simple, jam and toast. You get free coffee and tea all day though. However the double rooms are tiny!!! We have a small patch where we could barely stand once our backpacks were in the room. Felt like a prison... but it was cheap.

    acceptable guesthouse”

    near puduraya station and petaling shopping street, china town

    The room has enough space for 2 persons, no smell, big bed, 1 mirror and table + chair. I booked a fan room but they give me aircon room. However, aircon has no remote so too cold when working long, didnt switch it on. Clean floor. Common shower is not too bad. I think it's cleaner than Birdnest guesthouse in China town that I stayed once. But Birdnest is cheaper. Breakfast with toast + jam + butter. Tea and coffee all day.

    Too expensive”

    Location was okay, still had to walk 15-20 mins to train stations. And we went at summer time and it was HOT, even with an umbrella or hats. The free breakfast was just bread and coffee. And the room was small. But we paid for the fan room. The fan was good even though it was hot outside, we did not feel it in our room because of the fan. Great if you like interacting with other travellers and the girl receptionist was really approachable and really nice. Was so willing to help us out.

    This was the 3rd time we have stayed in the step inn, the location is perfect for us just on the edge of China town, it is much cleaner and has better facilities than anywhere else we have stayed in China town! The staff are great, they are all really friendly and helpful, they make you feel at home! It has been 2 years since we last stayed here and the manager recognised us which is always nice. There is a great atmosphere with plenty of space to hang out and meet new people and free tea and coffee all day! What more could you want!

    Stayed at Step Inn Guest House for just a night with a friend. The room was a double Room (Ac) and bathroom en suite. Just enough for a night, clean bathroom and a comfortable bed with working AC as well. Common kitchen with basics .Met a few friendly lodgers and the staff are very helpful in planning your travel agenda. Preferable for back-packers,it's a budget hostel. Thanks you.

    location, friendly staff and excellent value forr money

    3rd and final stay. Stopped a few nights on this visit. The guesthouse did not disappoint. Staff always friendly and helpful and full of good advice. Felt "homely" and welcoming. Drank copious tea and still didn't get free breakfast as we get up and get on before 07:30. Return of the construction noise from next door - but everything else outweighed this. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse as a base for exploring Kuala Lumpur. If we return to Kuala Lumpur we would stop again. No need to change anything.

    2nd brief stay in Kuala Lumpur. Even faster book in (as return visitor), map provided on previous visit helped to organise sightseeing of Chinatown. Helped ourselves to free tea and coffee. Again didn't sample the free breakfast as early morning departure for flight to Borneo. Great place to meet like-minded travellers. Heard the building works on this visit but "management" got the noise stopped.
