    Won't recommend”

    The only thing I liked was two cute cats roaming around. My "single room" was a 6m2 box without window with poor ventilation and old aircon. The place itself was extremely run down - smelly public area with dirty walls and broken almost everything. No cooking facilities, patchy wifi. Located on the busy polluted road and the only benefit is that train station Bangsar just 5 mins away.

    Very homey ”

    The incharge ma’am was very helpful and chatty. I was fortunate that when I called the place one hour, there’s bed available and when I arrived at the Bangsar Lrt station around 7pm, clueless and tired from the long journey, the owner was helpful directing me to the place. It’s a hostel, above the mechanics store and there’s plenty restaurants around it. Plus you can hear the train and cars from the room. There’s no tv though but I don’t mind. The roommates I got were very funny and we exchanged lots of stories. However, there’s no fan in the room and if you happened to get the lower deck bed, you might want to lower the air conditioner, but you will freeze the upper deck roomate lar. So give and take.. what’s more with the cheap rent. Sure will come again. 😘

    Charming owner but place needs work”

    I think the biggest draw for this place is the charming and helpful auntie who owns it. She's so sweet and nice, it'll feel like staying at your relative's house. Added to that, her helper was also really helpful and patient. The location is also a really big draw as its literally the station next to KL sentral. That being said, the place really does need work. Spaces need to be cleared and cleaned, doors and toilets need to be fixed, and basic daily upkeep must be maintained. If they do that, then I feel more people will feel drawn to the charming simplicity of the hostel.

    Its a little difficult to find, but all gems require to be searched for. The staff here are amazing, aswell as the tenants that are drawn to stay here. A great spot to lay your head and to meet wonderful people aswell. Everything you need is available to you, and it is a good location to venture out from. Enjoy your stay at the bodhi lodge!

    Gege- the owner- and her staff Sim and the other one (I think it was Michael) plus their other tenants were super nice it felt like a home. Even giving me tips on my travel to other destinations. There was a problem with the female dorm aircon- Gege was honest about it and offered remedies. When all failed, I asked to move to the twin room and she let me do that with no issues, I just had to pay minimal additional fee since that was an upgrade. It felt like I was staying with my auntie. Her cats are adorable, too! The food around the hostel (Fierce and the convenience store) were convenient. I would come back!

    Very annoying business owner(lady).”

    1) What is the problem when I booked and paid for Double Room, but stay alone? 2) I accepted no supply of bottled drinking water but there is NO DRINKING WATER SUPPLY either inside the lodge. **what a nightmare !!! 3) Poor and smelly bed-liner. I requested for change but the lady owner claimed the bed liner is clean at first and after I pin-point-out some hair at the bed-sheet and pillow, she told me -- no clean stock already. 4) Please bare in mind that there is two access door to enter the lodge. First door, no access code for this locked door, the access card is not working either. But the access card can use for 2nd door and the worst part is NO DOOR-BELL. So every-time I have shout for the lady owner or somebody inside the lodge to press the switch and released the first locked gate. (very terrible at the night time).

Staff is friendly, and there are even two cute cats!!! Facilities are good at this price. :) The pillow in my room wasn't clean, and made my sensitive hands swelling. But since I have 2 pillows, so I just switched them and everything was then OK.
