Travel Hub is an excellent backpacker's in Chinatown, near the Pasar Seni MRT station. The place is slightly hard to find with signage being very non-descript and the front door gives no indication of the place, which isn't a typically good indication as to the quality of the place.
I was pleasantly surprised though as the staff were very friendly and very helpful. The cost of a single bed room was just under $25 Australian per night. While the room looks uncomfortable, the bed and pillow were surprisingly soft and the room was fairly quiet when considering that the floors are wooden and the floor I was staying on was fairly full. The street noise was fairly continuous throughout the night, but not a major problem.
Perhaps the only problem is that the bathrooms need some more maintenance. One had a broken door handle, while the other bathroom had a broken shower system and the lock was falling off. While the shower system was repaired earlier in the week, it was busted again by the end of my stay and the lock was coming away from the door. This left only one functionig shower for 16 rooms.
That aside, this is still an excellent stay and should I return to Kuala Lumpur, I will definitely stay here again. The location, staff and comfort of the room were well and truly worth it.
