The guesthouse is located right next to china town in a small quiet and clean street. The staff is really nice and caring. We had booked a room without a window (it was the last room they had) but we knew in advance and when we arrived the employee offered us to change rooms the next day, as soon as... More

The location is relatively easy to find if you just follow their directions and is not a long walk from the nearest station. Maybe 5 minutes for me and I was pulling a suitcase along the broken up footpaths haha Staff are very helpful and it has a friendly atmosphere. Facilities are all good. Although no smaller lights/ Windows in... More

Stayed for one night because of a transfer. Good place downtown. Very close to Chinatown. Friendly staff. Shared bathroom was clean. They provide sheets and towel. Bed is good and comfortable. Room was very small. No cupboard or anything. Because the dorm was on the same floor the noise was bad.

I booked this place for its location and good reviews. It was an easy 5 minute walk to Merdeka Square, the race venue for the Standard Chartered KL Marathon over the weekend. Got 1 slot in a 4-bed female dorm. Room was cozy and clean, with a small locker each for storing valuables. The room aircon was pretty warm though,... More

Good location in Chinatown. Short walk to the free bus service which takes you to the main shopping area in about 10-15 mins, right next to this is also the train line so you can get pretty much anywhere easily. The room was comfortable, towels provided, bathrooms were nice. Breakfast was the usual and tea and coffee were available all... More
