Shared a wonderfully air-conditioned room for a few nights, clean and comfy. Complimentary breakfast and tea/coffee all day, with a kitchen if you wanted to cook for yourself- though being so close to Chinatown you'd be better off with some delicious and cheap street food! Awesome location and really friendly, helpful staff- big shout out to Ophelia and her cheerleading!

Arrived at Step Inn to be greeted by really friendly staff and great atmosphere. Great communal area to make new friends, clean and cozy. Saturday Guest House BBQ to get your feast on! Located next to China Town and the KL Bus Depot, great food close by. Includes breakfast and the internet is super fast.

This place is not only located in the very heart of KL, but an oasis for backpacker bye stopping. I was told I'm not the only one who overstayed a night or two. Just hanging out on the terrace with nice people after a day of exploring astonishing KL. Plan to be back soon!

We arrived after a long flight during the night. Check in was swift considering late hours. We were given a room with two separate beds instead of one king size. But ... it saved us the night! I woke up multiple times in the night beaten badly by budbugs, so I moved to the second bed where we finally slept... More

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.
