    The best budget accommodation in KL”

    This was my second stay at this guesthouse and I find it great in all respects. The supermarket in the mall opposite and the neighbouring Indian, Malay, Bangladesh and Middle Eastern eating places, as neighbours, make it unbeatable.

    i love to stay here, even i came back here in my second time vacation to KL. The location about 150 meters to imbi station, just walk and you will find it. This place turn on the aircon whole day and night, and here the bed so comfy. If you like quite place to sleep, this one is a must. The only thing i dont like was only the water of shower, bcause i dont think the heater works everytime i do shower. I hope they gonna let the heater works whole the time and didnt turn it off oftenly. If i travel again to KL, i'll back here for sure.

    This place has become my base in KL. I often go to other neighborhoods but whenever back to KL central I always stay at Irsia. Great location, 2 minutes walk from the train station that connects KL, right behind Berjaya Times Square and plenty of restaurants around. Rooms are clean, well ventilated and the wifi is good and reliable. Staff is friendly and helpful. At this price point you won't find any other hostel as good as Irsia.

    Good hotel for backpacker”

    The price is good for the quality. Do not expect too much, this hotel is good for backpacker. If you are a backpacker, you will be satisfied with this low budget guest house. There is no tissue in toilet, I hope they always check it. It is little bit far from Jalan Alor for walking (around 12 minutes). Not so far from monorail station (around 4 minutes walking). It is hard to get food when the month of Islamic fasting, the solution is go to Jalan Alor. There is several restaurant open 24 hours in Jalan Alor. The room is clean enough, but the bed is too small. My height is 168 cm, and there is only remain small spaces for my body. For people with height above 170 cm the bed is not suitable. There is a locker in this guest house, the safe box not so clean but the space enough for small suitcase. I didn’t see GO KL bus around this guest house. You can use public bus, monorail, online taxi to go around Kuala Lumpur.

    Lovely hostel”

    I don't usually leave reviews, but this was an amazing hostel that's newly renovated. Super clean, comfy, wonderful location, and lots to see/do within walking distance. Alan was a wonderful help, and made the hostel vibe 10x better. He would introduce travelers to each other which made socializing much easier. Thanks to him, I met some amazing travelers, whom I am good friends with now. I also befriended all the staffs there and they are very outgoing and helpful. We even got one of the staff (Nairulhizam Mohamed) to show us around the city and got to try local food. I highly recommend this place, and look forward to going back!

    Located very conveniently a few steps away from IMBI monorail station, beside Times Square mall. Newly overhauled in 2017, with beautiful interior decor, clean dorms, no insects, decent Wi-Fi, showers with hot water... and that's about it: no breakfast, no shared kitchen, no water dispenser, not even a kettle to boil water for a tea, no towels provided.

    BREAKFAST, LOCATION, PRICE

    Irsia BnB is located right behind the Berjaya Times Square and 5 minutes walk to the nearest monorail station. We booked double fan without window and it was expected. It's clean and comfortable. For the price we paid, which was a bargain, we got adequate breakfast. The staff was helpful. Since it is a hostel so you're expected to put a deposit, but not much. They don't mind letting a 2 year old stay as well.

    We had a great stay in this conveniently located budget guesthouse. A short walk to the train and it's location next to a giant mall with an amusement park made our children very happy to stay here. The lower level of the mall has a giant food court with many very good budget restaurants. The staff was attentive and well informed. I will be staying here again.

The staff was very friendly and the hotel and room was very clean. you will not complain anything for this hotel with the prize. the bathroom was clean also even it was shared bathroom. the breakfast was standard. for long stay, it will be a little boring with every day America style breakfast. for our 2 days stay, there was no room cleaning also. we also must clean our dishes by ourself. so we must self service for some stuff. but for all, this hotel was great. you should try also. thanks.
