Unfortunately, I stayed at this budget hotel. The owner doesn't follow the published price at his website. It seems when there aren't much customers that day, he increases the price. He charge me 50% more. As I was checking out, I wanted to check from the logbook and found out that there was indeed only 2 rooms booked that night.... More

The location is within a 5min walk from KL central station. It's really easy to get to and from the airport, roughly (7 malaysian) to the airport to hotel. It's great for getting around since all the metro lines met up at central. Around the hotel is not much to do our see. There is a 7-11 across the street.... More

Being located within five minutes walk KL sentral, Central Lodge is in a good locaiton if you have an early flight the next day and don't want to pay the high price for an airport hotel or taxi in the early hours. Aside from this there isn't a whole lot within walking distance, so if you are staying more than... More

The owner is mentally unstable.You ask a normal question about the room rates & he would start interrogating you as if you are some kind of an intruder & he behaves as if he would be doing a favour to give you place in this lousy prison. After climbing a flight of stairs to 4th floor with the baggage,as there... More

I knew I'd be arriving at KL Sentral from the airport at about 2 a.m. and I needed to be out the door early the next morning, so I didn't want to go too far for accommodation. It's literally a 2-4 minute walk. The hostel assured me there would be someone to let me in. I previously tried this approach... More

We visited the hostel twice as it was a good, economical choice in Kuala Lumpur. The hostel was basic as you would expect but it was clean. The man who ran the hostel was very friendly and helpful. He knew his stuff when it came to Kuala Lumpur. The thing that would make me go back most was I felt... More

Good location, 2mn walk from KL Sentral. Lots of street food in the area, cheap and very authentic. Basic room, no bed sheets, air conditioning in the room and fans available. Bathroom/showers clean. Breakfast is available: toast with marmalade, coffee and tea, if it is not enough for you, you can have a nice coffee 1mn walk from the hostel... More
