“Lovely hostel with great vibe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is a great hostel in a fabulous location right by the monorail at Bukit Bintang. You are in the heart of the city with all the amenities you could need right on your doorstep. The staff at the hostel are lovely and incredibly helpful when it comes to anything you might need regarding your stay in the hostel or your time in KL. The free wifi and constant free flow of tea and coffee are of course a massive bonus, especially given the fact that there are always people chilling out in the social area ready to chat and share stories.
The bedrooms are good sizes with very comfortable beds and secure lockers and the air conditioning makes for a nice break from the often very humid KL city air! Showers and toilets are also of a great standard and are cleaned regularly throughout the day.
Don't judge a book by it's cover...from the outside this place looks a bit dodgy, given the fact that it is on the second floor of a main street building above a massage place...but looks can be deceiving and in this case they definitely are.
Great place to stay..highly recommended, will be staying again when I return to KL in October!

You really can't beat the location of Sunshine Bedz, it's in the middle of everything you could need in KL. It's right next to the monorail station with transport links to the airports and bus station. The shopping is excellent with many international brands close by (read: sizes to fit western women) and a short walk to the Low Yat IT mall (5 floors of tech bargains) and Berjaya Times Square (9 storey mall including a rollercoaster). Food is awesome in the area with Jalan Alor just behind - all kinds of restaurants with great prices. If you're on an even tighter budget the roti stand around the corner is really great. A covered walkway nearby goes all the way to the twin towers, and there's a free bus that stops out front going to Chinatown and the twin towers.

The staff are great with 24 hour reception. Beds are awesome and really sturdy, with the best pilllows in any hostel, and a big locker for every person. Cleanliness is really good.

There's renovations at the moment that will be finished very soon and will offer a big new common area and lots more beds, so that's really good. As with any backpackers hostel, earplugs are a good investment if you're a light sleeper.

Patrick and the other staff are awesome, which makes staying at Sunshine Bedz very enjoyable! Unfortunately the street facing rooms can be very loud, and the others don't have windows. Also Bukit Bintang is not the cheapest neighborhood in KL, but it is rather convenient and the monorail stop is right across the street from the hostel. We stayed there twice already and should we go back to KL, we'd probably stay there again.

(Please note that we actually stayed there in February 2011, but Tripadvisor won't let me add a review for a stay this far back)

Room Tip: Street facing rooms are loud, try to get another one.

Sunshine Bedz located in Bukit Bintang and very near to the monorail station. Even located in a quite busy street, the hostel is not crowded or full of loud noises. Bathroom is very clean, but the common room are tiny. Staffs are extremely nice and helpful. Beds are nice but don't forget to bring your T-plugs or something like that- since there's only two electrical plugs in my room that intended for 6 beds. Had a great times staying here.

Room Tip: This hostel located on the right side of Giordano- opposite Sungei Wang mall. Turn right from the mo...

Friendly and helpful staff. Great location however a lot of traffic in the street outside. It's central though with close access to Bukit Bingtang monorail station. The Petronas Towers are not far away. Probably best beds I ever slept in when it comes to hostels. Don't miss restaurant The Ship located 200m left at the opposite side of the road.

Sunshine Bedz is a clean, quiet hostel, located close to Bukit Bintang monorail and the petronas towers. I found that the staff were really helpful. It is not so good for having a communal space to chill out in.

my friends and I stayed for three nights. We booking 4 beds room for private. The first two nights we stayed in very tiny room which has only one lamp inside. We were expected, one little lamp for each bed, but overall it was ok. it has private locker also inside the bedroom. The bathroom are neat and clean. The staffs are friendly and nice. things that bothering me is the carpet on the floor. It is better if they were not covering the floor with carpet bcz if they not well maintained, the smell if the room Will get stinky. Overall... We had a Pleasant and nice stay..

Room Tip: If it is available choose the room in the second floor to avoid from breakfast crowd ;)
