      Good location”
      My second time staying here, everything just as good as my last visit except shoes are now allowed at Level 1. The reason is to prevent shoes being stolen, which I not really agree on. I still prefer not to wear shoes in order to keep a cleaner room, as now the room is dustier than before since everyone is wearing shoes in room and to bathroom. I would like to suggest to the guesthouse management that stop allowing shoes in the room. Anyway, the location of this guesthouse is still the best suit to my need, which is very near to Dataran Merdeka and Pasar Seni. And the staff are really friendly.

      We had a really great stay. Max is the best!! He took great care of us and shared his jam for our breakfast. The LRT and train is super close by and so is the bus to the airport. It's also right by the old market which has a great food court. We really enjoyed our stay and I recommend this hostel.

      Very nice cosy place in the city center.”
      Clean, gentle and helpful staff.
      the hostel is a nice place to stay, all in all. the staff were very helpful, the room as clean and comfortable, i met some interesting people at the lobby and services were good enough. for those who are "zone-aware", while the place is at a very convenient location (in my opinion), at night the place is surrounded by homeless locals. to me they didn´t feel as a threat at all though i guess others might not appreciate this fact. also, some rooms (specially mine) can be awfully close to the reception desk, leaving you with very little real intimacy. i any case, i´d be back for the price i paid.

      Friendly Staff and clean environment and 24hr Security
      this was our first visit to kuala lumpur. submarine is located pretty much in front of the central market, a good place for local market shopping. the lrt (kind of like subway) is also within walking distance. the hotel is new and clean with friendly staff. the manager, jack, helped a lot when we asked for travel info. 24hr security is also a big plus. it's a safe environment for single female traveler. good choice for backpackers on a tight budget. will come back again for sure!

      As soon as I entered the room, I found it's too stinky to stay in. Unfortunately, I needed to checkout immediately. I have tried some hostels nearby, there are many cleaner hostels with similar price. It's difficult for me to recommend this place to my friends.

      poor quality”
      the only thing that resembles the photos is the layout of the place. everything is gross. the top floor (reception area) looks like a squat. the second floor (where we had a double room) is somewhat better. the AC inside the room leaked and we spent 3 nights with dripping water (into a bucket). so annoying! we barely slept for 3 nights! this was mentioned on day 1, but nothing was done about it. given the bucket in the room, it was a well known matter but no intention to fix it. the room next door became available on the second night but we were never offered to change rooms. DO NOT leave your shoes outside, as it is expected (common in Asia). my Birkenstock sandals went missing within a few hours. the place is squatted by some awkward people (long term stay) for obscure reasons. the shared bathroom was as filthy as one could imagine, and the water was optional. had to shower in the toilet (literally 10 CMS from the bowl). the place hasn't seen detergent since it opened, for sure! it's really the pit of KL. even the price was over the top for this rat hole! we suggest to spend an extra few bucks and have respect for yourselves! we're not the type of people to complain, but we're trying to take this one up with Agoda, as it is simply unacceptable. the staff was nice, Max was somewhat helpful but he escalates his problems to the owner who in turn is nasty, so no help was provided. the location is good though, I'm the heart of Chinatown. pass if you can and thank us later!

      I paid for Twin Room but got Double Room instead although I paid higher for twin room. The rooms were comfortable and clean enough. Fully air-conditioned. I compliment their rooms. The toilets were shared, something that was expected but they were too small. Hard to do business plus the fact it was right next to the receptionist. Location was very hard to find from Masjid Jamek. Had to go in an alley. This should be your Last option to stay.
