Just the location is good. Last time it was good in terms of everything now getting worse
Good location, helpful staff, affordable price.
We found insects in our room, and the bad new is 1 insect in our pillow, and I can't believe that the bed is so worst, it's not like you sleep at a bed, then we talk to the owner and thankfully they want to change our room, but because we want to move to the room with better bed, we need to pay more. It's not recommended at all.
It is nice. good for backpackers with low budget
The guy at reception. He is handsome.
Cleanliness issue and hygienic lacking
I love the room, I like the hospitality of receptionist
The place is at very reasonable price neat and clean location is very nice near to all famous shopping mall restaurants banks cafes very convenient all public transports at walking distance above all the owner Mr Mateen is very cooperative nice and kind person management is very good.
The location is very strategic, the staff and owner very nice, air conditioning and hot water work well, so far all great. We will comeback soon
Comfort and clean nearby have a lot of shops. Staff is very friendly. The location in Bukit Bintang, the place where 80% tourists stay, so it is best place for the night life. bread. I'm very satisfy with the stay.

Very Bad
Very Good
Worst experience ever!
So we chose this hostel because it was cheap and central, and from the pictures we saw online, it didn't look too bad for staying only one night. When we got there, we were met by a huge wall full of mould right next to the bed!! The room was dusty and full of flies, and it didn't look like the toilet could flush properly (the state of the bathroom was generally horrible). My friend immediately started getting rashes on her skin when we got into the room. We tried asking the manager if we could move into a dorm room instead (which looked better than our room), but he said it was fully booked. The manager also lied to Expedia and said that there were only a few tiny dots of mould on the wall (which he will paint over later), but the whole wall was full of mould. You can see this on the pictures. On top of it all, one of their guests got arrested by the police!! We only stayed here for 30-45 minutes, but it was a horrible experience, the condition of the hostel and the service. Don't believe the pictures they post on sites like Expedia, etc!!!

Very very unpleasant stay
We booked this room for the cheap price and "clean room" as shown in in agoda.com. Not to mention that the location of the stay is very hard to find (especially during night time), the room is very dirty too. The walls are stained, most of the furnitures are covered with dust, TV not working, mentioned towels and hairdryer are not provided, the bed is making noise and the spring is broken. I can't deny that their wifi signal is quite strong in some sense, but it's totally a bad experience for me and my friend. Never coming back to this place again, just never.

Not for me
The guest house is a little way along Jalan Rembia on the left by the towing sign. It was supposed to be 90 ringgit for 2 nights but with extra charges, cost 116 ringgit. The room was fairly small. No window. Large bed, air conditioning, TV, basic toilet and shower. It would be OK for someone on a tight budget but not for someone who likes even a bit of comfort. Eating places and mini marts nearby. Lots of bars end of turning, turn left. Malls and shopping area about ten minutes walk away. I left and got a far better room elsewhere for twice the price.

Awful, just awful
Had to move to another hotel because it was so awful. Did not get any refund anymore even if I only stayed for 30 mins. Yes, thats how awful it was and I think getting out of that "house" was the best thing I did in KL.
