Basic hostel, but the owner makes the difference. He is so nice, involved and always in for a chat. I stayed in a private room with AC, it was a perfect place to start and end my trip. The hostel is close to transport and in the center of the most interesting part of KL.

Nestled in the heart of KL, between chinatown and pasar seni train station, bird nest is very welcoming and cosy and offers different range of rooms for very fair prices. It can be very hot in the room though but this is the best budget place I found in KL!

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 overheard another guest talking about bedbugs aswell so i guess it wasn't just our room. They only have one (western toilet) that functions as a shower aswell for way... More

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

BirdNest is a cute and cozy guesthouse, u will immediately feel comfortable there… The terrace at the back is wonderful, and you can always enjoy a drink with some backpackers from around the world, while watching at the 2 iguanas that live there…Perfect place to chill out during the evening or during the hot afternoons! Rooms are basic but clean…place... More
