When I arrived I had the feeling of being in good company. Warm welcome, nice people and very spacious. For some reason I had the feeling people who stay there become friends easily. Patrick, the owner, is very friendly and someone who is integrated. Hanging with the guests and showing them places where to go and party.

Came here alone for a couple of days. Great place to stay. The staff were very friendly. The rooms and restrooms are very clean and the location is great. There were lockers to put your stuff in and everything and breakfast was solid as well. The only problem was that some of the lockers in my room were broken but its OK, nothing too bad. Overall, I had a great time here and would definitely recommend this place for anyone staying in KL for a couple of days.

We booked in here after reading positive reviews in Tripadvisor, but have been quite dissapointed.

Right now (March '13) the roads outside, and the hostel itself, are undergoing some remodelling. This instantly gave us the feeling of walking into a bit of a building site. In the hostel, but particularly in the dorm rooms, there is little or no natural light, leaving a bit of a Vegas type feel. There isn't much communal space either. Sadly, any sense of atmoshpere is therefore completely lacking.

On the up side, the shared bathrooms and showers are modern and clean; breakfast is modest, but adequate (coffee/tea/toast); the staff are friendly and helpful, if a bit short on local knowledge; and the dorm rooms are competitively priced with good A/C. The PC on the 2nd floor doesn't work, although there is WI-FI thoughout. Locationwise, it's better placed for mall shopping than sight-seeing.

All in all I can only rate this place, in its current state, as average.

Room Tip: Some of the doubles seem to have windows to the outside.

Pros: The location is near the monorail station and the Go KL bus stop (free shuttle service around Bukit Bintang and KLCC area).The establishment looks new with clean facilities and bed sheets. You have to remove your footwear before entering the lobby which makes the place cleaner. The common bathrooms are all spotless, though the area looks a bit messy because it’s adjacent the laundry area where they wash the bed sheets.

The Filipina caretaker was very nice and she even helped me get to my destination during her rest day.

Cons: Sunshine Bedz is located on the 2nd floor, however, downstairs are working girls offering massage and "other services". Not recommended for travelers with kids.

This is a great hostel in a fabulous location right by the monorail at Bukit Bintang. You are in the heart of the city with all the amenities you could need right on your doorstep. The staff at the hostel are lovely and incredibly helpful when it comes to anything you might need regarding your stay in the hostel or your time in KL. The free wifi and constant free flow of tea and coffee are of course a massive bonus, especially given the fact that there are always people chilling out in the social area ready to chat and share stories.
The bedrooms are good sizes with very comfortable beds and secure lockers and the air conditioning makes for a nice break from the often very humid KL city air! Showers and toilets are also of a great standard and are cleaned regularly throughout the day.
Don't judge a book by it's cover...from the outside this place looks a bit dodgy, given the fact that it is on the second floor of a main street building above a massage place...but looks can be deceiving and in this case they definitely are.
Great place to stay..highly recommended, will be staying again when I return to KL in October!

You really can't beat the location of Sunshine Bedz, it's in the middle of everything you could need in KL. It's right next to the monorail station with transport links to the airports and bus station. The shopping is excellent with many international brands close by (read: sizes to fit western women) and a short walk to the Low Yat IT mall (5 floors of tech bargains) and Berjaya Times Square (9 storey mall including a rollercoaster). Food is awesome in the area with Jalan Alor just behind - all kinds of restaurants with great prices. If you're on an even tighter budget the roti stand around the corner is really great. A covered walkway nearby goes all the way to the twin towers, and there's a free bus that stops out front going to Chinatown and the twin towers.

The staff are great with 24 hour reception. Beds are awesome and really sturdy, with the best pilllows in any hostel, and a big locker for every person. Cleanliness is really good.

There's renovations at the moment that will be finished very soon and will offer a big new common area and lots more beds, so that's really good. As with any backpackers hostel, earplugs are a good investment if you're a light sleeper.
