            Great location. Walking distance about 4 mins to local eateries and about 8 mins to Jalan Alor and 10mins to Bukit Bintang train station. Best to take the MRT exit/enter near the KFC. However, I usually take Grab if going to the malls ie Pavilion, KLCC etc since it is easy and affordable to grab car. Guest house is also safe for solo traveler. The room and its bathroom are bigger than what I expected. Clean as well. For your comfort, bring shampoo, conditioner, facial wash as only body wash is provided. Best also if you have an extension wire as the working outlet was a bit far from the bed and desk. Overall, Sahabat Guesthouse is a safe and nice place to stay. Definitely would book again if I visit KL again.

            I found this is a nice place for staying, the location is within Bukit Bintang. Close with Alor street where you could fine vary of culinaries. Also close with Pavilion Bukit Bintang MRT station. The disadvantage is the location has many old buildings, the next building seems to be demolished for high storey building.

            Hidden treasure. Our room was Anise. Cute, spacious room with no storage. The ceilings were a little mouldy and damp but we didn’t pay for luxury. The room was clean and the air con worked TOO well. Bed was comfortable and the area quiet. Great food/bar places around the corner and a short 10min walk to the hop on bus to explore the city. Staff were accommodating and helpful. Being a gay couple we were apprehensive but the staff were friendly and didn’t bat an eyelid at our double room. We felt safe here, and would stay here again if we were to return to KL. ❤️

            Sahabat Guesthouse is located right in the center. It’s just a 10 min easy walk to the main square. The rooms are simple, and very clean. I like the cleanwhite sheets they use on the bed. There’s hot water in the shower. They serve a simple cereal breakfast for all the guests. There’s really nothing that was wrong! Everything was great, even the security of the hotel was good. If you are looking for a cheap but clean place to stay this mini hotel does the job!

            We booked a family room. I was enticed with the beautiful picture in Agoda for the family room. However, when we arrived, it was not the room that was given to us. I was told that i should have requested for the room that was in the picture. How would I know that we should be requesting for that actual room when it was the photo posted in Agoda? Our room had the balcony but it was soo much different with the one on the picture that enticed me. Thanks anyways because the staff waited for us until 3AM because we arrived in KL at 1AM. Breakfast is a plus as well.

            Location was near the bar strip and Jalan Alor. Not very near public transport, but we mostly took Grab/Uber due to they were very cheap (RM 7 from KL Sentral). Room was simple but clean. Towel and liquid soap provided. They only clean the room every 2 days but they were upfront about it and informed us upon check in. Water heater and aircon were working well. They provided free umbrella for us to use when it was raining. Simple breakfast (cereal, bread, coffee/tea) provided. The only problem I had was the noise from the nearby bars when we stayed during New Year's Eve. But the noise might not be as bad during normal days.

            Some adjustments and it will be awesome”

            Missing hair dryer, fix the safety box on the ground and I will come back for sure. Clean, great position near the Bukit street food paradise, 15 minutes from the Petronas, helpful staff. A little noisy, but it's Asia, bring earplugs...

            Great location, lovely hotel with friendly staff

            This is the second time, I stayed here. Right behind Jalan Changkat Bukit Bintang, just within 10 min walk from Bukit Bintang monorail station. Clean rooms with attached bathroom. the whole area is very quiet, despite the fact that the street next to it has the busiest night life ever.

            Clean, strategic location and value for money

            I enjoyed every moment of my 1 night stay. From the tastefully decorated rooms and various parts of the house to it's cleanliness and it's quiet surroundings despite being right next to the party district.
