“Overall, great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

I spent a total of three nights here, and I had a very comfortable stay. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. The decor is fun, and I loved that there was a kitchenette and hot showers. The one issue I had was that there were old floors in the guesthouse so both early morning and late night, you can hear the other guests as they pound their heels into the floor. If they posted a sign making them aware of this annoyance perhaps the severity of it would lessen. Yet overall, I really enjoyed bird nest!

our time at the hostel was excellent, there is a small kitchen and communal area where you can cook, meet people and enjoy some tea or coffee and the location of the hostel is perfect! the staff were super helpful and offered discounted tickets and loads of advice! brilliant price for an excellent hostel :)

Room Tip: dorm rooms are small and cheap! probably the best option

Hi everybody,
it was almost the best guesthouse in south Asia, where I have ever been. I was 4 nights there. Staff is really kind woman, who help you with everything! It´s on the quiet place in Chinatown not far from LRT (metro). Very cool and nice place :-) Maybe shared rooms are rather small, but it´s clean, quiet and very cheap!!!

Birdnest is a place where happens a lot! Once you arrive there, you will not want to leave. Owner and Birdnest's staff are always helpful. Rooms are nice and clean, however most of them do not have windows facing outside. Therefore it is sometimes stuffy and hard to stand in a room.
Location is just perfect. Just next to questhouse is bus station and LRT station. From bus station you can always take a free bus which can take You to another part of the city. 100m from questhouse there is an indian restaurant where they serve the best banana leaf in whole Kula Lumpur.

15 Ringit, its like 3 meals on the street... remember that! Its almost 4 euros! that's more than cheap and of course, the average price for a dormitory room in KL! If you want a swimming pool, being private all day, spend a lot of money and feel on the rich side of life, wanna have fancy stuff you're definitely wrong here! this is an amazing hostel where you can meet people from all over the world with great tales to tell and you will find an amazing staff here! the owner is a totaly cool man, managing birdnest 1,2 and lok ann hotel.. all the staff is helpful as could be and of course always freindly! even if youre an annoying guest <please try not to be annoying at all, they deserve better!>. After all i would really like to stay here longer! as in the title,if i ever return to KL you will find me here! im serious! Its clean, comfortably and you will have a great time here! do your self a favor, stay at birdnest!

Room Tip: i had the dorm, theres only one. if youre affraid of noises at night, keep a bit away from the kitch...

We accidentally bump into Shawn.
I think he is the owner of the place.
And he showed us a brochure of his guesthouse, we thought here we go again but the place is exactly like the pictures.
More than one time a day they clean the hole place. It's never durty new and nice to stay.
If you are searching for a clean and cheap place I think this is the best one of KL.

The Owner, willie is great guy very friendly and helpful, he made the hostel alot more enjoyable!
Would def recommend to anyone travelling on a budget.
