    If you missed the last bus/train/LRT...”

    ...and you need a safe place to put a night, this place is OK lah. Why do i need to mention safe? What you think Petaling Street is a safe place? Better spend a few bucks on a room/dorm and have a nice shower before you sleep than sleep on public benches/floor with that sweaty shirt on your back after running after the last public transport you missed. Breakfast? Yea... sliced white bread with butter and jam. And maybe some hot beverage. That's all. Don't wish for a full spread of Malaysian breakfast like nasi lemak, roti canai and dim sum. They exist, but not in the building. Oh ya when i stayed there, i had no idea why there were two guys... South Asian descent i suppose. They both climbed up the double-decker bed above mine. I needed my sleep but they were talking almost throughout the night. Disturbed my sleep. *insert cuss here* Until about 11pm i guess, then only they left. WTF? Isn't that way past the check out time or too early to check out? Bad experience not because of the hotel, but the guests.

    Why go to an overpriced hotel surrounded by empty buildings?”

    Overpriced, noisy rooms with no activities locally & ripped off by something called a destination surcharge. The prices for rooms are cheaper for walkins.

    Hotel or Vice Dens ?”

    I would not recommend this hotel due to the cleanliness, facilities are too bad. I was check in, and the room is still not tidy by housekeeping and alcohol bottle in trash bin, the room have the dust and bad smell. Even, the staff ask me to change the room, the new room also too bad. The water pressure also very slow. Compare with Ancasa, better I go there just pay RM90 and I get better facilities and the breakfast also delicious.

    Great find in the heart of China Town”

    Well priced little gem, right in the middle of China Town. RM65 for a double with ensuite and AC. Rooms are clean and functional. The hotel is very quiet despite the central location. They have a small kitchen area to make breakfast. Toast, cereal and coffee are free. The staff are simply amazing. Fantastic service.

    Better options are available”

    Bring your own locks for lockers, and you may be happy to have your own sheet. My bed wasn't cleaned (hairs everywhere), toilets were ok, didn't shower, signage says you will be charged 1 minute past checkout o.o, I stayed the one night I paid for and went to a different hostel, hostel room mates were job seekers, location is in the middle of the touristy BS of chinatown ... there's better options.
