This price is a good choice.”
The location is very good. It's just across from Petaling Street. Take a bus from the airport to Pudu Central and walk for about 10-15 minutes. The staff was very friendly. Although I ordered 10 mix room，but the staff changed me into four girls'dormitories. The hall is beautiful and has a retro style, but only the hall has wifi, which is not available in the room. You need to take off your shoes when you enter , but the floor is not very clean.
Great hostel in middle of KL”
Really comfortable hostel, great value for money with free breakfast (toast & jam, coffee/tea) just next to the markets in the middle of KL. Very clean and comfortable. Nice social/tv area. Has rooftop access
Great staff & big hostel ”
- staff is really helpfull and kind. I would like to give them 5*. - fast check-in/out -30MYR refundable deposit. - beds are comfortable n lockers r provided. - shower is ok. - toilets don’t have jet (Me ? I don’t lyk to clean with tissue ..sorry 🤪) - The only problem is “ THE DONT HAVE WIFI IN ROOMS”.... we have to sit in reception area all the time for wifi . And rooms are on 1st/2nd n 3rd floor .

Pros: the staffs are very friendly. The place is accessible to mrt and just a walking distance to central market and petaling street Cons: the wifi is only available in the reception area.
PERFECT VALUE, LOCATION , STAFF, CLEANLINESS AND ATMOSPHERE”
I've stayed in most of the top hostel in KL , and have to say this fits the best ! Location is extremely central with many restaurants , bars, etc. You can even walk to the party hostels and enjoy their bars, without having to sleep in the noise. The wifi in the lobby only makes it more social, plus for the price difference per night, you can buy a sim card for only 10-15 ringitt, so still a bargain.... and the common area is the biggest and most comfy I've see In KL (Only feel the lighting could be a bit more brighter). Staff are lovely , and the beds and rooms are comfy....free towels too..
While we didn’t enjoy KL itself, we really liked our stay at this guesthouse. When we checked in, the staff had accidentally missed cleaning our room. When we let them know, they immediately changed fixed it and we were able to move in a few minutes later. The WiFi is only in the communal area, which was fine for our purposes and makes sense considering how tall the building is and that it’s solid brick. The rooftop has a nice view and there’s plenty of space in the lobby.
Not many people. 1st Room was dank and musty. 2nd room was a little better, window and ac”
Friendly, relatively clean, stayed in a double with a window on 1st floor near bathroom.
+ The Lounge is very nice a lot of space to hang around. 2 computers are free to use. Breakfast included (toast, jam, peanut butter) free tea and coffee all day. - WiFi only at the reception (Lounge) Rooms have no windows and very small.
Great location! Great staff! But unfortunately not attached bathroom. I rented a single room and it wasn’t mentioned that there is no attached bathroom... and like most of the hostels, the sharing bathroom is not always clean... otherwise the location is great and the staff is very welcoming.
Dear Ziya, Thank you so much for the feedback! We are happy to hear that the location and the service provided were suitable for you. However, we can assure you that we are continuously working on improving our guest experience and be assured that we have looked into the situation to avoid this kind of things happen again. As the top rated budget hotel franchise in Asia, we work hard to provide the best value-for-money stays and a pleasant experience. We hope to see you again! Kind regards, Putri
good location, nice staff, cleanliness is just normal
Very nice hostel, lobby a bit cold and lack of drinking water. But staff is very friendly
Wonderful staff, excellent location right around the corner from Central Market, very comfortable environment. Would absolutely recommend this guesthouse!
The guesthouse is strategically located near Central Market, Chinatown, and Dataran Merdeka. Food hunting and shopping are easily accessible. PUTRA LRT-Pasar Seni station is just walking distance away. Besides the bathroom door need some repairing, others are just superb!
Fulfills all my requirements”
Our Family flies Air Asia and we often require a stop over in Kuala Lumpur. This is never a problem because we always stay at The Explorers Guesthouse. We travel between KLIA 2 and Chinatown on the Star Shuttle bus which has a bus stop 5 minutes walk from the guesthouse. We are always welcomed with a friendly smile no matter what time of day or night we arrive. The staff are very helpful. The guesthouse facilities are just what we require all at a reasonable price - clean comfortable rooms, wifi and desktop computers, storeroom, free toast, tea and coffee for breakfast. It is all good for us and we do not hesitate to recommend this accomodation to others. We look foward to our next KL stopover at The Explorers. Sincerely Gary Collinson and family from Perth Western Australia
lovely, great atmospere”
good, recommend it- value for money, good location on the side of China town, nice public area to hang out and meet people, and amazing view from the rooftop- TV tower and twin towers along with some dome.
Clean, Good Location”
This is a nice place to stay close to China Town and the central market. The rooms are clean and have ac. Our ac wasn't too cold on this stay. They have coffee and tea for free all day and free breakfast.
Nice, clean place with a good location”
This place is in a central location. It's only a 10 minute walk from PUDU bus terminal. It's a five minute walk to City Market or Chinatown. The place is really clean. Coffee and tea are available all day, but breakfast is skimpy... toast, peanut butter and jelly. All in all it's a nice place to stay, especially if you get a discount rate on-line.
Tidy, kind guest house!”
It was nice place to stay, staffs r really helpful, and friendly. They gave lots of information of travel. And also they helped us to catch taxi. It was unforgetable! And room was very clean, and bethroom as well. There is china town near by this place, so easy to find restaurants. Train station is quiet near too. I surely recommend this place!
Special decoration and kind service”
We stay 1 night. Everthing is good. Clean. Well decoration where we can relex after whole day walking/traveling. Kitchen with sufficent furniture. It's convenient for us. It's nearby little Indian station.
"Just like home"”
the rooms are very basic. a square box with two beds and no window. the rest is all good. location is excellent, right in the heart of it all. friendly atmospher. even supplied tea and coffee with a simple breakfast. nice bonus. very near the bus depot. over all a great place to stay if your on a budget.
