One of the worst places I've stayed in my life. The second night there was a cockroach on my pillow. We left even though we still had one more night booked. Hotel owner is also unpleased and rude. We told him about our problem and he couldn't care less. A cockroach on your pillow doesn't qualify as a refund. The... More

I stayed in Number Eight Guesthouse years ago. Stupidly, without checking out the latest reviews, I booked 3 rooms for my recent trip to KL, with my friends. It was an embarrassment. My friend's room was full of cockroaches and dirty bathroom wall. I felt bad that they did not sleep well, as the cockroaches were running around. The breakfast... More

The location is quite convenience to travel to nearby attraction and the train, also on foot. It is good enought for a budget accommodation. We booked for 3 persons and we got a big room. I stayed here many years ago and just remind the name.

I wanted to find a cheap room for my two nights in KL and the nicest place I found was a female dormitory at 8eith hostel. At least it looked like a proper room and not like a prison cell as private rooms for about same price in other places. The staff was friendly. The price also includes breakfast.

If based on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being the best you can possibly get, and 10 being the worst imaginable, then the “Number Eight” Guesthouse is accurately ranked. Located in the Bukit Bintang area of Kuala Lumpur – a decaying tourist magnet, littered with dirty backstreets and equally dirty and appallingly maintained hotels serving the local prostitutes...

The guesthouse was ok, nothing great to talk about and nothing horrible. The best part is the location, couldn't fault that. Close to Imbi station (monorail - connected to Chinatown, Times Square, KL Sentral and Little India as well as pavilion mall). We got a ok rate on agoda, I wouldn't pay any more for it. I wouldn't in my... More
