We choose this "hotel" because we needed something for two nights in Chinatown. So for the 1st time in our journey, we choose the cheapest from all rooms in that location on Agoda. Normally we did not stay in that kind of places, so we wasn't impressed at all, but you got what you pay for... i think. Room was clean, looks and smell old and odd, but was clean. Bathroom was in bad condition but still, we paid 40RM or something like that, per night, so good we had place where we can take warm shower or shit. Big plus for rooftop breakfasts, this was the best thing for us in that place. Overall if you are used to cheap locations or hostels i think this place is not that bad or maby even good.
Great value in Chinatown”
I didn't eat the rooftop breakfast, but I heard it was good American style. I gave them a 5 star because of the rumors as well as the 100 choices around the Inn. The room was clean, it was safe, and the staff was helpful. It was a 7 minute walk from the train station which was great too.
nice hostel in chinatown, rooms very basic and shared bathrooms but sweet and helpful, can have your breakfast on the roof
Very good. Avoid the restaurant directly below the Inn. They tried to pad the bill; charge me for napkin use and ice and sent rice to my table that I didn't order acting as if it was free- which it wasn't, also a 5 percent service charge which is only revealed at bill time. Which I didn't pay. Really pathetic cheap hustle.
Weary nice stay”
We are not much to stay at the hotels we book for our self, so we searched for the cheapest in the best location. The bed were comfortable and the room was cool enough.
Great location in the heart of Chinatown, breakfast was delicious and staff were helpful . Really needs a lick of paint and a good clean!
Good shoestring hostel ”
Good location in chinatown, with easy access for the rest of KL. Very reasonable pricing. Shower pressure was non existent and only cold wash laundry available.
Cheap and simple”
We stayed in one of the rooms right behind the reception and it was ok, simple room and quite clean bathrooms. Wouldn´t recommend this place for longer stay, but it´s ok for one or two nights. The price is the cheapest around and the location is really good.
Great for backpackers”
Simple but good for the price, you can meet a lot of another travellers, good location.
Good, cheap place, very basic!”
Simple place, excellent deal for the location, recommended to all travellers on a budget!
Good quality price relation”
Simple accomodation but good for very cheap price. I expected less. The share toilets were clean and service kind and informative. Only probles is that we had sime bugs on our bed...but thats not very uncommon in cheap hostels across Asia
Nice place to stay. :) :) ”
Spent good time in this hotel. Felt safe and money well spent.
it was okay for me until i woke up having bitten by something. i dont think it was a mosquito because our room is close, i think theres something in the bed, it might be mites so i havent slept that day! glad we booked for 1 day. the bites were very terrible. i think they need to clean their beds 🤔
Just a one night transit before my proposal defence. Was too busy doing my revision, didn't notice anything bad, actually everything was ok for me except.., the water pressure on the third floor should be better.
Ok for the price ”
Very basic accommodation. Felt a little like a prison cell. Fan room very hot and was difficult to sleep. Clean and ok bathrooms. Great location and wifi ok, we struggled as our room was the furthest away.
It was ok”
I booked a room for myself, it was pretty ascetic, more like a cell. Staff was kind of ok, but they gave me some tips as for where to go. For the same money I've seen in KL much nicer, cleaner and cosier places, so generally I was happy to check out.
it's nice but the staff is completely not helpfull”
We ask for information about a tour they offer , they have a travel agency inside, the only thing they did is give us a flyer and say you can read..We ask also for towels,no problem if you give us a deposit of 8RM they said... when we wanted to give back the towels they said it was for rent and we will not get any money back.. what a nice service!!!
Not that bad actually”
Excellent location, the single rooms are down their own corridor away from the dorms and I had a good night's uninterrupted sleep. No complaints.
Good price in KL”
We had a good and pleasant stay there, but we were dissapointed because of no blankets for sleeping-it was for deposit include towels and toiletrolls.
Very good low budget hotel”
Friendly staff, very good location, nice atmosphere. Next year I'm gona back.
