Strategic location and affordable.
That's so amazing experience. May the location not good. But all the experience in this place is amazing. I want to back in next traveling.
This is my favorite hostel all over KL. It is spacious, comfort and clean. The staffs are very welcome.
The people are friendly but breakfast that they offer is not that good.
A safe, warm and definitely strategic place to bunk in the heart of KL City.
PODs has given me a very safe, clean and comfortable accommodation experience fort an extremely affordable price. My stay was an eleventh hour plan, yet I manage to find a very unique place and definitely a place I would recommend to others and patronize again in the future. The most interesting thing in the PODs is their friendly and accommodating staff. They take extra effort to know more about their customers and always make me and others feel warm and welcomed. I also find that the PODs is a place where you experience varied interesting activities planned and organized by the staff. This is definitely a global backpackers home where everything is perfect, extremely satisfying and definitely worth for your bucks! Great service, great location and great people.
Near from KL Sentral just need 5 minutes, it is suitable for sleep only and you will get what you pay. They are very nice to welcome you.
Good and recommended hostel. Yes it's comfort and clean. Very close to KL sentral. Sharing bathroom but it's clean. Love this hostel.
Great stay. Great place. Great service.
I love it! staffs are all very friendly and the place is so convenient and strategic. I recommended!

Great price, perfect location
Located 10 minutes iight beside KL Sentral station, and there're a lot of restaurant nearby! Most are Indian cuisines and also some Chinese cuisines. Dom and shared bathroom are simple and average clean, and a restaurant at the ground floor, where you have your breakfast. WiFi speed is good, and video call is ok. Owner speaks perfect English and Malay. Solo Traveler, Dom

Terrible place, don't spend your money!
Never ever again! The description is totally cheating!! Extrasmall room without window. In the night a.c. works like crazy, no possible to make it less. In the day time a.c. is switch off and the fan is broken. Shower is terrible. This place should costs double time less. Очень НЕ рекомендую это место! Комнаты и душ - ужасны. Менеджеры разные, есть хам, есть такой, который готов помочь при необходимости. На мой взгляд, цена за такой клоповник очень завышена. Потратьте на 15 минут больше, чтобы найти более достойное место, чтоб не портить себе впечатление о КЛ.

Local Resident Are Not Allowed
As I was working late in the nearby area, I needed a place to rest and get those sweating odours out. As KL Sentral / Brickfield area has limitless option of accommodation, I choose the place as they offer a RM30 dormitory and breakfast. Everything is in OK condition – bed was comfortably OK though the bed sheet looked a bit tired, toilet & shower was clean and spacious, wifi was superb, pillow was rather small and breakfast was really simple but enough to jumpstart your morning and lastly their book collection has a myriad of topic/genres. My only complaint is that the property won't accept local resident (read as Malaysian with KL or Selangor address). There’s nothing about this in their website. I found this a bit annoying.

A bit of a disappointment...
First of all, I feel bad giving only 3 stars when none of the staff were at fault, but on the other hand I wouldn't really stay here as a solo female traveller again. The "pods" name is misleading since most of the accommodation is just shared dorms with bunk beds, not the "pods" you typically see in hostels. I've stayed in basic places but this is reeeeally basic and a little grimey. I just didn't feel comfortable at all. My locker was broken and the bathrooms weren't clean at all. Breakfast was really disappointing, and again, I just felt like everything was dirty. The good part is the little cafe downstairs is chilled and comfortable and the food you can buy was really good. However, it didn't have much atmosphere - again, not the staffs fault!
