          Great location and friendly staffs”

          Good service

          I stayed there just 1 night and I satisfied. I chose the single room. The bathroom is shared but I almost think that it is my private bathroom because nobody else uses it. But you have to bring your own shampoo, toothpad,... because they don't provide that (reasonable for a hostel) The room is ok, larger . A desk, electricity, big bed are enough for a solo traveler like me. Location is great. From LCCT airport, it takes 1h 15m to come to Serai Inn. It was the first time I came KL but I followed the guide in website of Serai Inn and I could use the bus, LRT, no need to take taxi from airport. Only 8.3RM/1 way (if you buy 2 way ticket for Aerobus at airport). In KL, I traveled on foot. It means my hotel is near all of sightseeings. Of course it was tired but I'm young, no problem. The staffs were very friendly. They were tourist guide also. Service is ok. They keep my luggage for me although I checked out or early check in. So I can travel in KL 2 days but just need 1 night in hotel. The breakfast is good also.

          we stayed at serai inn a couple times. our first time was great. we had a quiet room, with a comfortable bed. the staff are really friendly and helpful. they will show you on a map how to get to and from, tell you where to go for good food etc. the bathrooms are spotless. our second stay was good, but the bed in the room was really uncomfortable. you could feel the springs coming through the mattress. so we suggest checking the beds if you have the chance to choose a room! other then that, we loved our stay at serai inn!

          Serai Inn is a clean, good location and staff friendly guest house. The location is almost at the centre of sightseeing points. You can walk though the chinatown and the historical buildings with almost 30 min by food. Also, some not bad indian resturant around this area. We feel comfortable in Serai Inn.

          we loved serai inn! the staff was so friendly, and sat with us for at least 15 minutes helping us with sightseeing. the rooms are clean and cozy, but nothing special. there's just a bed, blankets, and a night stand. the aircon works perfectly and the shared bathrooms are always clean. no shoes are allowed in the hotel which is one reason why it's so clean. we would definitely stay here again next time we're in kl.

          serai inn is a solid, no-frills option for travellers that just need clean hostel for overnight. what you get is comfortable bed and clean bathrooms and toilets on shared basis. breakfast included in the price is just toast and jam + tee and instant coffee. there is a common area with tv set. hostel is well managed - rooms and bathrooms are absolutely clean. there are no bedbugs what is an issue in some other hostels/hotels in kuala lumpur.

It is really helpful because sometimes the signs can be confusing in the city and there are always better ways to do things and these guys know the best way every time.

          serai inn is a great budget hostel for those that are looking for nothing fancier than bed, shower and small breakfast at minimum cost. i cannot think of anything that i did not like, although we did have trouble finding the place, as our taxi driver took us to a wrong street that has a similar name in the middle of china town market, so had to walk from there to the hostel with our luggage. the people at the hostel are very helpful in terms of suggesting things to do and routes to take.

          This guest house is in a great location - only a 5 minute walk from the bus station (where you can catch the Star Shuttle to the LCCT for just 12RM). It is also within walking distance to other main attractions in KL - and VERY close to Chinatown. The room and bathrooms were clean - even though the rooms were small, it was perfect for a single traveler. The breakfast offered is very simple, but there is amazing local breakfast sold about 3 meters from the entrance in the morning - take advantage to eat the local fair - it's delicious. I would definitely stay here again.
