This is the 3rd or 4th time I have stayed in Step Inn and I was not disappointed. I received a warm welcome-and was recognised! After a swift but no less courteous check in, I was shown to my dorm. I slept way better than I expected, the mattress was comfortable, sheets were clean. I also received a towel, wifi... More

Nice, affordable, strategic location, though it's kinda confusing if you take a walk directly from Bukit Bintang, especially when they have 2 guest houses now (Yup, we arrived at the second step inn guest house, instead of the first one :p) But then, their location located in front of Plaza Rakyat LRT Station and near Pudu Bus Terminal. It's in... More

Step Inn is a basic hostel, with a good location for ammenities and very close to a metro station. The 4 bed dorm we stayed in was fine, it did the job for a few nights. We didn't find it too hot with just a fan, and you also have a window you can open (just be aware of the... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights when visiting Kuala Lumpur. The staff is really great and seems to care a lot about the guests staying there. We stayed in a double-room and thought it was good for the price paid. The only downside was the toilet which could hardly flush and the water on the floor after showering... More

People complain about cleannes in the references, but obviously they haven't seen anything from Asia. For Asia this was very clean with hot water (!!) + almost no mosquitos. Location is perfect, you can find best food + chepest (indian) here: 03°08′39.98″N 101°41′45.36″E

Just standard hostel. Nothing special, poor quality but prices are reasonable especially because this place has very good localization. But I don't agree staff there is very nice. There is worst staff I met in Indochina but I know why. English/Irish guys lazy and a bit rude. Friendly if you don't expect from them any effort. I know in Indochina... More

We are very sorry, but are you sure that this review was meant for our hostel? While we do have people from Western countries volunteering here, we do not employ anyone from UK or Ireland. In fact, one of the staff members is Polish himself, and every staff member treats the guests with the welcoming and kind attitude that they... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There are two things we are proud of here at Step Inn. First, is our excellent location. We are situated in the well-known Golden Triangle of Kuala Lumpur, where everything is easily within walking distance. In this area is the busy China Town(10 mins), street food heaven Jalan Alor(10 mins), the best bar street in town Changkat(10 mins), shopping central Bukit Bintang(15 minutes), and the famous Petronas Towers(30 mins). We are also a few minute walk to the local metro(LRT), airport shuttle(Star Shuttle), and one of the central bus terminals(Pudu Sentral), so you can easily plan your next destination. The second thing we pride ourselves in, is our hospitality. We do our best to establish, a warm homey environment. The moment you walk in the door, you are considered part of the family. We provide a free map and enjoy giving tips on the city, so you can fill your few days or maybe many days, with lots of things to do. Our knowledgeable staff can also give suggestions for your continuing journey out of Malaysia's capital city. For being a budget guest house we do provide a couple perks that you won't find in many places, in the Golden Triangle. We have many types of rooms' available, double-ensuite, double, single, family, and dormitory beds. All rooms are clean, with a window and fan. On check in we provide you with a fresh towel & free roll of toilet paper(for single, double, en-suite, & family rooms only). In the morning, there is a free simple breakfast, with all day coffee and tea, that will help you get started so you can begin your tour of this great city. We provide 24 hour reception and free WiFi in every room, so you can stay connected at all times or get help at any hour. So, if you are looking for a homey budget guest house, with an excellent location, great knowledgeable staff, and nice facilities, please Step Inn. ***We offer special prices for walk-in and email customers*** ***Now if you book 3 days or more with any of our booking sites, you are eligible for a free meal at our restaurant TG's Nasi Kandar.*** ... more   less
