We stayed in Sahabat Guesthouse during our stay in KL. The staff were very nice, the GUesthouse has a very familiar atmosohere. The room was clean and big enough. The bathroom is very smal, but that was no problem. The kitchen is open 24/7 and you can have coffee and tea all the time. The area is perfekt, you can... More

2nd time stayed at the guest house, friendly staff, clean room, bed, toilet. Fantastic wall mural and ambiance. Walking distance to primary shopping malls, next to pubs and nightlife hotspots and local special foods just besides the corner.

The guesthouse is clean and quiet and the location is very good a short walk from Pudu bus station. There some negatives however. Mandatory shoe removal is annoying. The rooms have no tv and no purified water is provided. The breakfast is almost nonexistent . But if you're looking for An overpriced guesthouse with only foreign travellers this will do... More

After staying in multiple guest houses throughout SE Asia over the course of a couple weeks, Sahabat was our least favorite. We were expecting a friendly welcome upon our arrival, but we received a short brief intro at reception. It was a "here are your keys and your room" moment. Also this is not 100% the fault of Sahabat but... More

I realy love this place! I was staying in the family room that was really cool and amazing. Its really satisfied my short getaway. Thanks to Sue, she was really friendly and sweet, she really carries out the place name "sahabat". This place is very beautiful and calm. Stay cool my Sahabat!

Ideal for Bukit Bintang. Bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Rooms ok we did struggle with the fact there are no drawers to put clothes into. Had to live out of suitcases as were were doing trips to three places altogether. The area is very run down but that is how it is. Slept well in the beds as they... More

We spend a week with the family in KL. The location of Sahabat was perfect in Bukit Bintang close to loads of restaurants, shopping and easy access to transport network. The rooms are ok clean and functional and staff is helpful. Good option in KL if you want to be central and don't want to spend too much in accommodation.
