Birdnest Guesthouse is a great place for backpackers. My wife and I stayed here for four days in a private room with a bunk bed. At 35RM/night for the room, it's the cheapest place we've seen in KL. If you're looking for luxury, look elsewhere, as Birdnest is definitely a no-frills, strictly basics backpacker spot. But there's free wi-fi, friendly and helpful staff, free coffee and tea, and like the best backpacker spots, the place really creates a great, laid-back atmosphere for meeting and socializing with other travelers.
Many of the rooms only have windows that open to the inside corridor, so if you don't set an alarm, it's easy to sleep until noon! The location is excellent, a stone's throw from the major metro lines in KL. The only downsides for us were that the only two toilets/showers sometimes weren't enough when many people were waiting, and also the staff seemed to be absent a lot of the time, though when they were there they were extremely pleasant and helpful. All in all, the goods far outweighed the bads for us, and if we return to KL (and we hope to), we'll definitely stay here again.
