                Only Cheap Prices Are Attractive”

                Cheap Prices, Convenient Location & Friendly Staff

                I was a single traveler and stayed at Serenity Hostel for two nights. I liked choosing cheap but good hostels on Agoda.com, but this time the experience was really disappointing. I arrived in Kuala Lumpur at around 21:30 on the first day evening and spent the following 2.5 hours in finding the hostel! Kuala Lumpur was a tiny city and the hostel was just located by a bar street in downtown. But at night, you could never find it because of the crowd! If you want to live there, you'd better find it and check-in in the day. From the hostel by walk, you could reach KLCC in 20 min, or Pudu Sentral in 20 mins, or Bukit Bintang in 10 mins. The staff who received me at night was quite friendly. I like him very much. But besides the location and staff, I could hardly find anything good. The infrastructure was poor and the environment was noisy. Of course, if you like parties, it cannot be a better choice. At last, maybe I should be happy, because the prices were really cheap and affordable for students like me.

                friendly staff but noisy place”

                clean room and near from many places

                we were big family traveler with young children and stayed at serenity hostels for three nights. i booked serenity hostels via agoda because the price is cheap, i never guess that the hostel was just located by a bar street in downtown. at night, it very noisy. from the hostel by walk, you could reach klcc in 20 min, or pudu sentral in 20 mins, or bukit bintang in 10 mins. the staffs who received me was very friendly. we like them very much. but besides the location and staffs, i could hardly find anything good. the infrastructure was poor and the environment was noisy. they have many rooms but only hire 2 persons to manage the hostel. if you like parties, the hostel will be a great choice. but it's not a comfort place for children.

                Location, staff

                serenity bed & breakfast was perfect for my needs. as a young tourist in kuala lumpur, i was pleasantly surprised with the location of the b&b. it's located within a walking distance from the monorail station, close to one of the main avenues (where you can find anything you need as a traveler) and in the best street in kl for the ones looking for fun at night. the staff is also very helpful. they even took me around because i needed to find a pharmacy after midnight! i definitely recommend this b&b.

                cozy hotel in the midst of a lively area”

                very family-like atmosphere in the hostel, lots of bars in the vicinity just that they are expensive

                The place is walkable from the nearest monorail (bukit bintang I think), which takes about 15 mins. The area itself is lively and full of bars. For shopping and eating, one can simply just walk down to bukit bintang to enjoy its many shopping malls and eateries. Overall the bunking and accomadation can be described as cosy. They are pretty small considering you squeeze 10 people in a room, but I guess the wide and comfortable beds, plus the atmosphere around made up for it. The hostel can be a little bit misleading / hard to find. According to google maps it was located just before an irish bar (facing north east). But it is infact after the bar, and at the second level of a bar.

                Location, value for money

                I choose this hostel because the fee is so cheap and I'm just staying at Kuala Lumpur for One night. At first it's a little bit difficult to find because the hostel sign is too small and majority of the people around Bukit Bintang doesn't know about this hostel, they just roughly direct me to the street address and I have to find my way from there. But it has really nice staffs, the room is a little bit small for 8 person and they do not have lockers. But after all I have a very nice stay.

                the room was clean, the staff is very accomodating and friendly, the location is in the heart of the city.

                well, at first it was very difficult to locate the hotel because the sign is small (If they can make the signage bigger, it will be a big help)m But staying there is so nice. The room is clean, the place is secured, the staff was very accomodating and friendly and staying there for just 3 days I felt like they were my family (the staff), and the location is good. ITs near the bus station and other famous places in Kuala Lumpur. So I will recommend this hostel.:)

                People, Location, Security, Wifi

                10 minutes walk from the Bukit Bintang Monorail station, this hostel is in a central location that is hard to beat. Changkat Bintang, the street it is located on has bars and clubs, and connects to Jalan Alor the famous food street. Shopping is nearby, from the high class Pavillion to the tech paradise Low Yat, there is something for everyone. Have to pay for lockers which is a bit of a bummer, but 1 rm is not too bad. Breakfast is only toast and eggs, but there is loads of food all around included Western staples. Did I mention the fast Wifi? Go. You won't regret it!

                The hostel has a great location for anyone who wants to enjoy the nightlife in kuala lumpur. I stayed here for 2 nights and it was pleasant. The breakfast was great, and they provide you with fresh towels. The staff is very helpful.. it can get a little bit loud in the evening, but overall its great value for your money, and i would definitely recommend it to anyone.

                It was really fun. The room rate per night is included the free breakfast (bread/toast with margarine, strawberry or blueberry jam, boiled egg, and also a cup of hot tea or coffee. It's located in Bukit Bintang area which is really crowded in the night. The hostel also has high speed internet wifi, cozy living room/lobby and many of toilets and shower rooms. When I was staying there, I have many friendly roommates and we were talking much like we know each other before and because we stay together, it seems like a family. But they don't have reading lamp at each bed.

                The staff, the location, and the bars

                This is a cheap hotel with the best location and the best staff you can get. The place is literally above the bars and the location is surrounding by bars. If you love bars so this is the best budget hotel you can get. And kinda traffic during weekend because you know all of people or visitors loves to go to bars and you can imagine you stay in a street full of bars. About the place the serve breakfast with Strawberry jams or blueberry and they serve boiled egg and they open breakfast from 6 AM up to 10 AM only. Near Bukit Bintang area which is its the biggest shopping area in KL and you can find the best shopping mall in there. For me you get what you pay. Want have the best place in KL you need pay more. But the staff in here is extraordinary. =D
