      Avoid staying there, look underneath your bed first.”

      Dirty, disgusting and used up place. Used bed sheet, used blanket. Old towels. Even after telling the 2 guys running the location, no need for them to improve anything. Bugs in the bed already at afternoon time. Didn't wanna wait until the nicht. After having a look under the bed seeing junk from the last years, I decided to leave immedeately. Since booked and prepaid via Agoda, I could not geht my money back. This accomodation should be removed from Agoda.

      Good enough for a sleep”

      Air-conditioned, clean washroom

      It is perfectly okay if you just need a place to bathe and sleep. The room is air-conditioned. The attached bathroom and floor is clean, but I can't be sure on the bedsheets. The hotel is a very small place which you shouldn't talk too loud or else you will disturb the other customers. The hotel is located at a small alley. Though there are lots of guesthouses, eateries (oh the whole road is full of restaurants and stalls!) around it, the route to the hotel is dark and quite dangerous if you are travelling alone to the hotel at night. However, if you are travelling in a group, looking for food in KL (especially at night), and not picky on the place to sleep, it is fine to stay there.

      The room was very small together with a small toilet. LObby are very smelly but the staff re friendly. WIFI very good and location are ok. But i think can get a better budjet hotel around tat area since so many budjet hotel around there with the amount you paid for this room.

      Barely acceptable”

      Near the downtown

      With the cheap price that I paid, I can't really complain about this guest house's facilities. The manager's attitude was not so bad in overall, however aking for his advices isn't really a good idea. On that day, i wanted to go to Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall and was unsure about which route to get there. So, I decided to ask for his suggestion and was stunned to receive his answer: "Why do you ask me when you are holding a map?". Wow, speechless, remember, i'm a tourist and you're a local. Secondly, it's quite difficult to find this guest house cause the street is too small to be shown on the city map.It took us about 40 minutes to find the way out. Finally, the alley to the guest house is smelly and quite dark at night, if you're only girls, you should reconsider about this place

      Location

      the room is small but adequate. i booked it based on price for a central location. negatives no tv and the hotel uses duvets not sheets. i prefer hotels that use sheets as it is more likely the hotel will wash them on a regular basis.

      Location

      The guys running funky guest house are really friendly and helpful. The room was comfy and clean enough, aircon was working well, sure the toilet seat was detached and there were cement spots in the bathroom but you get what you payed for. Great value for money, considering the location which was a few steps from bukit bintang and jalan alor. The only downside is, there is a refuse collection area just next to the front door so it wasn't very pleasant when we first arrived.

      Location

      We were looking for a budget place to stay for the night, and decided to choose Funky Guest House after looking at the photos. The owners were friendly, and were kind enough to meet us at the road junction to lead us to the place when we could not find the place ourselves. Room was small but clean. Toilet was really tiny, just like most other budget hotels/guest houses in KL. Due to the rooms configuration and thin walls, we could hear the footsteps and voices of other occupants in the guest house as they pass by our room. We were also not able to sleep at night, as some people were still chatting and playing music from their laptop in the common area even at 2am. Location was great, as there are many eateries around, and within walking distance to Jalan Alor and the Bukit Bintang shopping belt. Overall, a cheap place to stay for a night. But it would be advisable to request for a room furthest away from the front door.

      Worst Experience Ever”

      Checked in for one night & considering to extend our stay for few more days but i changed my mind once i arrived there. The staff is busy talking on the phone while checking us in. He didnt even respond to anything that i said. The room part is the worst! Our room has no blanket, the staff need to take the blanket from the other room and the blanket is smells like its already been used so many times. The rooms smells like its never been cleaned before and the air condition is not working at all. I was expecting a comfortable not so luxury place to stay for the night as I just need a place to rest after a long day of road trip. Overall, I'm disappointed and definitely not coming back again, not until there's improvement has been made. Sorry.

      Most awful place on my trip through Malaysia ”

      First it was hidden in some backyard. I had to ask for the way three times to. OK I thought it is traditional place in old quarters so don't mind. Then I entered and smelt smoking from tobacco in whole place. Disgusting. But it went worse. The bed and room was dirty. So I demanded to change linnen and hope it might fit just for the night. Went out for eating came back and felt asleep. To be awaken by my worst nightmare in life up to now. All my body was covered with itchy insect bites. Not mosquitoes!!! As suddenly I turned light on I saw herds of bed bugs running over my sleeping place and the new linnen covered with blood spots from the bed bug bites. In panic and fear I awaited morning t come to flee this place as I was scared to walk away from this place at night through dark and unknown streets As day came I left still fearing I might these infestation with me in my luggage. So found other place where I washed and sprayed all hopefully to bugs heaven.
