The number eight guesthouse looks nice enough with friendly staff, a comfy shared living space and breakfast included in the price of the rooms (jam and bread with egg). However the small room that my wife and I took for three nights was jam packed with bed bugs. We both had a really bad reaction to the bites and we're... More

The place is as run down, filthy and not maintained just as most of the cheaper hotels and backpacker accommodations in Kuala Lumpur are. Wallpaper... More

When talking to the girl at reception desk, she lied by saying they have not had that issue before. I showed her another review on trip advisor that says they've got bed bugs, but... More

The place looks clean but when you move in you will truly see the actual condition of the place. We were given room 807 a double room with attached bathroom. The room was on the ground floor at the back. The room is moldy.. we arrived late and thought we could just rough it out but as we laid on... More

I stayed here last year before it changed hands and was renovated. It was definitely a tad shabby, but the price reflected accordingly. They've done virtually no other upgrades other than a new coat of paint and to cram a few more rooms in what used to be a downstairs seating area by the lobby. I made the mistake of... More
