Great location in Chinatown and close to all transport, a bood base to walk around in KL. The owner Willi is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are basic, similar to the average guesthouses all around, small and without bathrooms but clean and far more welcoming then the rest. There are 4 shared bathrooms, all with hot showers, a nice... More

Hello, Simply on here to recommend a truly positive addition to the trip. The two nights spent in Bird Nest 1 served as a jumping point for adventures into Taman Negara and the Cameron Highlands. Willi (the owner) is the man, one of the more beneficial people with which I had the pleasure of interacting on my journey. Competitive rates,... More

Instantly loved this place when we walked through the door, nice rooms at nice prices, good facilities, great atmosphere and common area, a really cool place to stay after a days exploring the city. We stayed at Bird Nest 2, but also saw Bird Nest 1 which looked nice too.

We stayed at Bird Nest on two occasions. Its central location is great for exploring the city- right next to the Chinese market and very close to the Maharajalella Monorail station and Pasar Seni LRT. It is also quite cheap for KL - 35RM for a double fan room. The place is popular with young backpackers which means it can... More
