As two backpacking long term travelers on a very tight budget, sharing a double basic fan room at the rate of 33 Rinngit a night was the best option in Kuala Lumpur where it is not easy to find a cheap decent room. We searched high and low and this was the best price in the area - other options are standard air con starting at 60 a night
Wheelers may not be pretty but it is clean enough and the bathrooms are consistently maintained throughout the day.
An un-inviting entrance may deter many travelers but once on the second floor you find a quirky, kitch, and inexpensive guesthouse with giant aquariums housing odd but interesting looking creatures. It provides very basic fan rooms with shared bathrooms that are a great value for the price. A double room is the same price as a single bed in the popular hostel across the road. It has free wifi and a good free buffet dinner on Friday nights. The rooftop has the potential to be sociable. Due to the convenient location and the price, I stayed her two times during my time in SE Asia.
I would recommend Wheelers for backpacker singles, couples, and friends on shoestring budgets that are comfortable in a very basic fan room and aren't looking for flashpacker style accommodation.
