Having been travelling around for quite a bit, i can now safely say that the worst hostel i've been to is close to home (home being Singapore). Picked this because it's recommended in Lonely Planet but boy am i disappointed. The place is worn and tired out. Bass from the club next door that lasts till the wee hours of the morning, attendants were "busy" fulfuiling their own life (etc watching TV or catching a nap), main gate was never locked...and on top of that, bedbugs (got a few bites myself). Goodness knows how often they manage the place.
A horrid experience in all. The only thing about it that is worth staying is its location, right in the heart of KL and close to the main sights. But then again, there are other hostels in the same area which are probably more well managed than Pondok Lodge. Choose this place at your own peril, especially with the various options around.
