Very helpful and friendly staff members. Thank you Sue and Tracy!. Good for the money, cozy and really feels at home. Good taxi service as well. Will definitely choose this guesthouse on my next trip to Malaysia.

We enjoyed our stay at this Guesthouse. The rooms are nice and clean, the location is perfect (near to the centre, the foodstreet and monorail) and the staff/owner are very friendly. Our bagage was lost at the airport and they were very helpfull to get it back for us. Bed are a bit hard but that's the standard as we've... More

This was the first place we stayed in Malaysia - thanks to Sahabat Guesthouse our first impression of Malaysia was that of a friendly, clean & welcoming place. The guy at the reception even made it possible to check-in earlier as planned. They gave us all important information about the city, where to go, what to see etc. What we... More

We really enjoyed. Convenient location, large rooms, friendly staff. Very well, there is a delicious breakfast. In walking distance of many shopping centers. Next to the guesthouse has free bus station, from where you can reach the historic center and the KLCC. Definitely recommend - great hotel in a fabulous city.

I had a good stay in this very good guesthouse. My room was nice, clean and safe. There was a computer with internet just next to my room. The staff was very helpful (one staff member ordered a taxi for me and got up at 6 am to make sure the taxi was waiting for me).

Great hostel, all the standard amenities, plus a modern feel. Rooms are nice, and cleaned every couple days (you don't have to ask for it either). Staff was super helpful, printed off our plane tickets for us, gave good advice on getting around. Beers from the fridge are cheaper than the corner store down the street too, always a plus... More

Dear DiverDInes, thank you for your review. We are happy that you have had an enjoyable stay with us at Sahabat Guesthouse. The one drawback from being very central is the effect on our neighbouring establishment's noise level. It has increased slightly throughout the years and we do offer free ear-plugs to our customers who find it distracting, just ask... More

The location for this small guesthouse was perfect for us. Lots of restaurants close by, massage parlors (of all kinds I suspect!), and walking distance to China Town, night market, and Central Market. Staff very friendly. Community breakfast was do it yourself and limited to bread, jam, cereal. Community refrigerator to keep your drinks (honor system). It worked well for... More

This guesthouse was absolutly amazing. I booked through booking.com after reading all the positive reviews and it did not disappoint. We were upgraded upon arrival to a larger room. Had our own little terrace off the front of the building. The room was big and clean and could not have been in a better location. Around the corner from Jalan... More
