            Everything was exellent!!”
            new, friendly, and convenient
            Was open in late 2012, so that everything was brand new. I stayed at business twin instead of superior queen, as the receptionist upgraded my room. I had a chance to take a look at the queen room and it seemed to be small, but it seemed to be worth for what you pay for. Have a computer beside the reception which the guests can use for free. You can use WiFi in your room as well. I saw a LAN cable plug-in on the wall in the room, but was told it was not working. The hotel is a walking distance from Medan Tuanku and Chow Kit Monorail stations, and also Sultan Ismail and PWTC LRT stations. The bus stop is at the opposite side(Jalan Raja Laut)if you are coming from Central Market and it costs only RM1. If you are going back to Central Market or Puduraya area, you can take a bus from Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman. There is a Chinese restaurant next door and Indian-Muslim restaurant behind the hotel. Next to the Chinese restaurant there is a 24 hour open store and the Indian-Muslim restaurant also seemed to be open for 24 hours. All three receptionist are kind and helpful, and made my stay really comfortable. Although the area is not recommended for tourists as it is near Chow Kit, I will go back to stay with them on my next business trip for sure.

            i was planning to stay a week + but checked out the next morning. the good: reliable and reasonably fast wifi and friendly staff. the bad: agoda room description said 17sqm but i think was way smaller. only 4 local (non english) TV channels. tiny full plastic wrapped bathroom much like the toilet on an airplane rock hard bed and noisy a/c hotel in a reasonably dodgy area looked ok online but in reality not somewhere i wanted to stay more than a night. for the same price, or a few ringit more you can stay down the road at the tune or prescott inn which are both much nicer.

            Location near LRT, price not expensive, and friendly staff
            Overall my stay at Yija hotel is OK. Amenities are provided, friendly staff, nearby has 24 hours convenient store, and there is a huge market that sells a lot of things within walking distance from the hotel, though I would advise travelers to be careful with your belongings when you are visiting the market, because it looks messy and crowded. The size of the room is OK, but the toilet is a bit small. The TV doesn't have a lot of channel to choose from.

            Location, cleanliness and comfort
            Yija Hotel suited our needs perfectly. We wanted a budget hotel right in the heart of KL, and we got the Muslim-owned hotel which was just a short walk away from the shopping havens of Sogo and Jalan TAR, as well as being a few minutes away from the Sultan Ismail LRT station. The rooms are not big but comfortable enough, with a bathroom unit that looked like it was a special order from Japan. There is a convenience store just next door, with a burger stall that's sure to satisfy the hunger pangs around dinnertime.

Room is quite confortable but there is 2 minus points that no refrigerator and b ed mattless is really hard like sleeping on board. Chinese, Indian and Malay restrants are nearby.

            Hardest bed in the world! But very fast internet..”
            fast internet, good location, friendly staff
            The rooms were horrible. The first room had no windows (not as described on agoda) and was far too small for two people. The second room we stayed in had a window overlooking a tiny backstreet, but a relief after living in a space capsule for two days. The beds are the hardest beds I've ever come across - worse than a plank of wood. Intense backache and hardly any sleep. Tried to request an extra blanket or pillows to pad the bed, but they didn't have any. Seemed to be quite short on supplies at the front desk - any request for toilet paper, coffee etc, and we were told they'd bring it up to the room in a few minutes, but they never appeared. Then they'd say they didn't have any that evening, sorry. But the internet was the fastest I've come across in a hotel, which was great, and location is good enough - in a slightly seedy area, with plenty of good restaurants open all night, and of course chow kit market. the LRT is walking distance (ten min), and lots of local shops along the way. But the hotel beds are awful.

            the staff were so amazingly helpful and the attendants was stunning - reminding guests they are on a holiday. New hotel and always maintains a strong standard of service and this was no exception. a bit further from the cbd but this was made up for by easy access to transport and great staff. Will come back to stay with this hotel.

            This hotel is one of the best value for money budget hotels i've ever stayed and believe me I've stayed in a lot of hotels in so many countries around the world. Although a bit far from KL Sentral and Bukit Bintang, it is still accessible by Monorail. The rooms are well maintained, clean and comfortable. The toilets smell good too and reminds me of budget hotels in Tokyo but without the expensive Tokyo prices. The pillows and mattresses are plush, new and clean. The aircon is a bit noisy but you still get a good nights sleep. The staff are also so nice, attentive and helpful.

            The hotel is new so at the moment is in relatively good condition, unfortunately I don't think it will stay this way forever. Our room was clean and nice, we had a problem with a blocked toilet but it was sorted out as soon as we reported it. The location is good, close to the Metro. It is not the best part of town but we never felt unsafe. All in all and given the price I would recommend Yija and will stay again.

            It's really clean
            it's location at the edge of kl's infamous chow kit area means that yija is in a great location during the day, but is not for the faint hearted at night. it's surrounded by really good food but in the evenings, is also near ground zero for kl's lower end red light district and the famous lorong haji taib area. check in was fast and efficient, the whole place is brand spanking new and therefore really clean. i was very impressed with the toilets. it had a very pre-fab almost high tech feel to it and was, as i've mentioned before, really really clean. a strange thing about the room was that the bed was really really hard. also, due to the proximity to the main road, my room was very noisy, but i had expected that. overall i had a good stay, it fulfilled all my needs and was cheap and (surprise, surprise) clean!
