We struggled finding this hotel, it was dark and rainy.. So when we finally got there we were miserable. But then we got to our room and it was very nice! Though out window faced a big car park, which wasn't very nice.. Plus several car alarms went off every night and woke us up. Except for that, the room... More

This has become my place to stay in KL. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and the location is great - walking distance to airport bus, restaurants, chinatown and most attractions in KL. The guesthouse is in a quiet street and is clean. Wifi fast and reliable. They have the cheapest beer around too.

It was a rough start for our Malaysia trip due to immigration fuss in the airport and finally boarded on the plane with my cousin being left behind and sent back to Cebu. Finally arrived at the budget terminal of Malaysia during the wee hours of the night holding only the detailed directions Step Inn has emailed us beforehand. Buses... More

It's not easy to find a true backpacker place in cities like KL anymore, so I was happy when I found Step Inn. The place has a nice, relaxed travelers vibe and the atmosphere is great! Staff is really friendly and very, very helpful. Travelers were also quite open minded and it as quite easy to meet people. You have... More

I didnt spend much time here but the people were very nice. They had this small space where you can hang out with other travellers. We had double bed room. The air con and fun functioned very well. The toilet was clean and nice.

I very much enjoyed my stay at the step in guest house. Right from the start I was impressed by the welcome email and excellent directions to the guest house right from the airport. Whilst the dorm is basic the chilling space is big. Even better there is a kitchen which is quite rare in Asia. I originally booked two... More

Had an awesome 2 night stay in the 4 bed dorm at the Step Inn Guest House. Staff are relaxed, very friendly and helpful (we checked in at around 7am after catching the overnight bus to KL). The dorms were clean with a fan, power outlets and great Wi-Fi. The back deck is a cool place to hang out and... More

We opted for the private ensuite room for our two night stopover before heading further north into Malaysia. We booked ahead and found the team that run this really responsive to emails, we arrived around 11PM after our delayed flight and were checked in seamlessly at the 24 hour front desk (this made us feel a lot more comfortable about...

This place is fine for the fraternity type guys. As a female, i would not recommend it. The rooms and hallways smell like smoke, the bathrooms were pretty old and dirty. The common area are a bunch of old couches with guys watching sports with their shirts off. We had to move after one night because we really did not... More
