We arrived Kuala Lumpur at 3AM after a long journey from Singapore and we decided to go direct to guest house even we had no idea they will allow us to early check-in or not. Thank god, they did. The manager let us in and left us at community room to take some rest and shower. The staff very friendly... More

I showed up at the place without a prior booking and the initial reception was, well a bit tentative. Of course once the owner Willie decided I could stay, everyone was warm and friendly in a instant. And that's when you get it. It really is a nest for long stay travellers and it's the kind of place where people... More

i spent 2 months travelling in malaysia, and birdnest 2 was by far the cleanest and most colourful place. it has a great location in china town, which means outside its very noisy. otherwise the place compensates that by not having staff that yells at each other :) in this sense it was the quietest place on my whole trip....

We were recommended birds nest 2 by a traveller we met so we were looking forward to our stay. We walked in and from first glance it seemed great, really cute communal areas and very cosy. We stayed in a three bedroom family room, room was very small, one bed looked like a pop up camp bed and extreamly uncomfortable.... More

Staff were friendly, chatty and helpful especially as I was stopping on my way through and was alone. Room and bathrooms were clean and a nice communal area for cooking. Security was also very good and made me feel safe in a new country. Although would strongly recommend getting aircon as very very hot!!

+++ Clean, comfy rooms +++ Great staff +++ Great place to meet new people ++ Located in the middle of China Town, at walking distance from the bird park, national mosque. Our last few days in Kuala Lumpur we stayed at a really fancy airbnb, but we really missed the Birdnest!! It's really a great place to stay.

we stayed at the bird's nest II guesthouse and loved it so much, that we just had to extend our stay... and are going back there the next time (very soon) when we're in the city. Cozy interiors, amazing helpfull staff, comfy beds and loads of interesting people.

No, I did NOT stay at this guesthouse. I just "came" looking for a friend of mine. I understand that your guesthouse is one of many guesthouses/hostels in Kuala Lumpur that imposed "NO Malaysians" or "NO locals" policies and unfortunately (not sure if this is the right word to use to describe the incident) for me, although I am an...

I stayed in a dorm room, which would have been tight and noisy (creaky beds!) were it full but luckily I had the whole room to myself got four days. The accommodation is very basic but it's clean and comfortable, the courtyard is a great to chill out and the wifi is strong. It's in a great location, right outside... More

The best feature of this place is it's beautiful little courtyard. A very nice escape from the bustle of Kuala Lumpur Chinatown. Our room was simple but fine for the price. The owner did seem a little bit picky about who stayed there. There were mostly couples while we were there.
