Happy Cat Guesthouse

This is a very cheap hostel. There is a backpackers atmosphere where you can meet many other travellers. The hosts now Sally and Richard are friendly and helpful. There is only one sitting toilet and that gives some traffic jam. The beds and rooms are according to the price.

Room Tip: With a bunk bed it is advisable to choose the lower bed. On top is to hot.

If you are a backpacker and want a place to stay this place is perfect. One of the cheapest in the area , very informative . Sally and Richard are very helpful with directing you and assisting you on your travels . The rooms are comfy , however you need to bring your own bed sheet . This place was a great place to stay in the middle of china town next to the station and free bus service .
I recommend to every backpacker !

Great place to stay in Kuala Lumpur !
We were looking for a nice, cozy, clean and cheap place to stay, which is not so easy to come by these days and we bumped into Sean. Stroke of luck, he handed in his flyer to us that looked really good and took us to Birdnest 2. What a lovely unexpected surprise ! The place is nicely decorated with some graffiti artwork and canvasses. Nice, clean and cozy, only a few rooms so even though there are only two bathrooms it is never really an issue. The rooms are not very big but as it is nicely decorated with bright colors and birdies inside, it still feels very comfortable and homely which makes up for it. Nice lounge area and also nice kitchen area where you can cook your own food ! That is a plus especially when you are traveling for a while. Sally, Richard and Sean are really friendly and give you all the info you need to discover the city and are always available. I loved how they took me through the free map they give you, pinpointing all the sight seeings and places to go out, also telling you about public transport, only handy info. It is also great value for money as the location is ace, you even have the free bus in front of the door. Try it you won t be disappointed.

I have stayed here 3 night and liked it that everything is nearby. The mosks, shops, busstations, elephant park and so on. They give you lots of information where you can go to and the staff is always around so its very easy to ask all sort of information.I was so handy to travel with a hangover and forgot my camera in camaron highlands. With the help and quite a few calls to my previous hostel, I've got it back!
Very nice...
