        I stayed in the privat room, which was a bit more expensive, because you also have to add 10 RM per night for the tourism tax. Room was OK, maybe cleaning could be better Also the ac is super loud And only one shower is getting warm You also have to repair the socket

        The location is strategically located in Pasar Seni and few meters from the famous Chinatown. I’d say everything is ok with this place but the only drawbacks that I noticed were: the aircond and wifi were not properly functioning. The management should do something about it. But overall, i would recommend this place to you!

        Was a good, clean and budget hostel but...”

        Yeah so we're excited arriving in KL. We arrived at the property about 6 am and was hesitant to check in very early in the morning... but the receptionist said that there was no problem and we can check'in early. To our surprise, she said we booked in a budget room and I said yes, for 2. But she responded that the room wont fit 2 people there. but then i asked why? We confirmed via agoda that the budget room is for 2 so what seems to be the problem, I asked. She said that there is a problem with AGODA mixing up such things. So I said what should we do? that time we were so tired from lack of sleep and all we wanted to do was lay our backs on the bed. Then she said, you have to pay additional price for twin beds 30 rm per day and tax of 10 rm. We booked for 3 nights. She asked for 100rm and a deposit of 50rm. We didnt argue and just paid for it coz we dont have the energy that day. That was the only issue we had. The cleanliness and staff were nice and the location is perfect.

        Price is fake. I had to pay more at check in.”

        The receptionist guy had no clue how to handle customers. I prefer Irene. The price on this site does not reflect the price they ask on the property. Why advertise fake price? Usually my stay here is pleasant but not this time.

        Very nice hotel in Chinatown”

        We had twin room with shared bahtroom and we were very satisfied. It was definitely worth the money: beds were comfy, airconditioner worked, there was free water refills and shared bathrooms were always clean with paper and soap. Little bonus is nice outdoor terrace where you can hang around. There was fridge, toaster ad microwave for guests to use which is nice, so you don't always have to go out to get food. Overall very nice place to stay and we are definitely coming back. Staff was always smiling and helping. Even the cleaning lady was smiling constantly and was very polite. We felt welcomed and appreciated. The area where hotel is in Chinatown is also nice with all the shops and food stalls nearby. Close to the subway and bus stops.

        I was travelling with my mom to KL and we chanced upon this hotel and decided to book it, based on its reviews. True to its reviews, the hotel was very clean, ideally located near Chinatown, and staff service was superb! Definitely recommended!
