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.

During this stay,i came back to... More

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

I visited this place in 2007 and really loved the boutique guesthouse. In 2011 the place was handed over to a new owner. I was shocked to see the state the place was in. What is left is a guesthouse in a deplorable condition. No ambience left. The staff is very unfriendly and occupying all couches and chairs in the... More

The room we picked was really quiet considering... More

The only one thing that is good, is Location, and still so expensive for a guest house. They serve a breakfast in the morning (toast, eggs, jam, and butter) with a drink that no one prefer. Rooms are small, a lot of them with bugs, so please check the room, and beds for bugs before you check in. Noise Noise... More
