Affordable. ”

I came alone to KK because I was in a hurry for a job interview the next day. A female dormitory was on promotion, it was only cost RM19. There was nobody in the room of six so I owned the room by myself that night. I was clean, the staff was super friendly and neat. Got an aircond. But for elders, there are no escalators, you have to climbed the stairs, mine at that time was at the fourth floor, its pretty exhausting. But overall, it was affordable and excellent service.

The receptionist were really helpful & attentive. We booked different room (family room with shared bathroom) & she was nice enough to inform us upon arrival that there is a room with private bathroom since we traveled with small kid. Over all the service is good, the room is clean & it’s a very pleasant stay & comfortable.

Cheap hostel in a city”

I paid RM17 for a single bed in a shared room but there was no one occupied the second bed. So i was alone inside the room with the price only RM17! Fairly near to the city. There was no lift but for the price like that I think it is fair enough to climb the stairs to reach my room.

Inexpensive but with issues”

Finding for inexpensive place to stay can be tricky. Especially when you are placed on the 4th floor without elevator and the air conditioning service is off between 0900 to 1800. The mattress provided is not comfortable. Even the staff hesitantly journey up to the 4th floor to do the chores. WiFi connectivity is poor at the 4th floor. No free parking and the area is noisy. One good thing though that the bathroom is very clean but water pressure a bit low.

Booked a standard double room through this app. There are two options, 'standard double room' and 'standard double room with shared bathroom'. I picked the former. Upon arrival, the hotel reserved 'standard double room with shared bathroom' for me. Their point, their standard double room are all with shared bathroom. Asked me whether would like to upgrade to double room with attached bathroom ( extra charges). I chose to upgrade. Called agoda regarding this misleading listing, and agoda agreed to refund me the upgrade charges. However, during the stay in the hotel, the bathroom dont have water supply. The shared bathroom just 10 secs walk away have good water supply. Despite repeated complaints, the water in personal bathroom never restored. Would never stay in this hotel again. I can understand why nobody stay here.
