        Great Guesthouse in a wonderful location”

        Good Location, Friendly Staff, Good Price, Very Clean

        Irsia was a great place to stay. I arrived late in the night and they had stayed up to check me in. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean, although my room, which was one of the windowless rooms, got a little stuffy, but that is to be expected. It is in a great location with some quiet restaurants and cafes next door, Bukit Bintang street just a couple minutes walk, and Times Square shopping center across the street. I definitely recommend Irsia and plan on staying there again if I return to KL.

        Hostel with great personality & wonderful location”

        location, friendly staff, price, adorable puppy on the premises!

        We stayed at Irsia BnB for 4 nights during our first visit to KL - although it was a bit tricky to find when navigating from the metro, a quick call to the owner sorted everything out and we did find it in the end. It is right across the street from the massive Berjaya Times Square shopping complex, and is a stone's throw from the light rail, so it's a great location for basing yourself while in KL. There are plenty of food options in the area and obviously lots of shopping too! Breakfast was basic but par for the course with this level of accommodation (more hostel than anything else): you have the choice of porridge and toast, that's it. For this part of the world, that's a pretty depressing breakfast given all the more flavorful options, but again, it's par for the course. We loved how colorful this hostel was and felt it had wonderful personality. The owner was really personable and welcoming and we were impressed that she seemed to know the names of ever guest staying at Irsia. We also love that they have a puppy on the premises who, despite being a bit of a troublemaker, was so cute and a lot of fun to have on hand! There were only two major downsides to staying at Irsia: 1) The fan rooms are essentially unventilated and so becoming sweltering saunas. We switched to an A/C room after our first night as our fan room really felt like something of a death trap, and I have no idea why they even offer them as they offer a terrible night's sleep. 2) The wifi signal was really tempermental and could only be accessed in some of the private rooms, but not others, meaning when we switched to the A/C room, we had to sit out in the common area to do anything on the internet. Also, the internet could be quite slow regardless, so that was a bit frustrating. Still, not a bad budget option for KL and we did enjoy the atmosphere there!

        Clean rooms, clean bathrooms, friendly staff

        I really enjoyed my one night at Irsia BnB. I had previously stayed at a hotel near KL Sentral and was very frustrated at the poor service and lack of flexibility with checkin times. At Irsia, the staff were very friendly and helpful. Checkin was fast and easy and the room was clean and a very good standard given the price. You have to use shared bathrooms but these are also very good standard, and most importantly, clean. Besides that it is right next to Berjaya Times Square and Imbi monorail station (less than 5min walk) and 15min walk down to Chinatown. Very conveniently located. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone and look forward to staying here again in future.

        So good I had to tell my friends!”

        Staff, price, and location

        I extended my stay (yet again) and had my friend who was meeting me in KL come to Irsia. We were going to split a double room at a different place but instead stayed in the dorm (for me, again) at Irsia because I had such a great experience. The location, price, and helpfulness of the staff are perfect for first-timers to KL (my friend) and also people who have spent a few days there (me!) Berjaya, Lot 10, Pavilion, Monorail, all less than 10 minutes walk away! Good restaurants everyone, and its great to start the day with free breakfast

        Nice rooms with good atmosphere”

        Friendly Staff, Great Location, Free Tea/Coffee

        The Irsia BnB was our arrival point into Malaysia, and we had just flown in from a two month tour of India. Because of this, the price was a shock for what we got, but when taking into account the fact we're in the capital city of Malaysia, I guess it was justified. The rooms were clean, though with thin walls, and at time of writing the building next door was undergoing construction work. Make sure you ask for a room that is not next to this, as they start up drilling, banging and grinding at 10AM on the dot, rather frustrating after a 2AM arrival. No windows in the rooms, usually this isn't a big deal for me, but if you're trying to fix jet lag, not knowing the difference between day and night can make a big change on whether you recover quickly or slowly, so I'm not sure I would stay here again if I was adjusting to time. Onto the good points though, the staff were incredibly friendly and courteous, remembering names in a spectacular manner and always happy to give information and a smile to you. The desk is staffed 24 hours, so don't worry about late night arrivals. They greet you with a bottle of water and help you to your room. The breakfast is nothing to write home about, but is included on the patio every morning as part of your room rate. Showers are hot and clean, and our rooms had a fan and another single power point. If you are a techy, bring a powerboard. The location is fantastic, a 2 minute walk from Imbi monorail station, which will take you to half the tourist spots, and everywhere in KL is a 15 minute walk from it, including the main bus terminal for onwards visits. All in all, if you're looking for a friendly place to stay in KL, this is a lovely place. If you're adjusting to a new time zone though, perhaps look for somewhere with a window. For the service alone, I will likely return.

        This place has become my base in KL. I often go to other neighborhoods but whenever back to KL central I always stay at Irsia. Great location, 2 minutes walk from the train station that connects KL, right behind Berjaya Times Square and plenty of restaurants around. Rooms are clean, well ventilated and the wifi is good and reliable. Staff is friendly and helpful. At this price point you won't find any other hostel as good as Irsia.

        Irsia was a great place to stay. The staff was very friendly and provided a lot of useful information. its near to times square shopping mall as well as the Imbi monorail station.Just take around 15 minutes to go Bukit Bintang. Very convenience by walk. Top recommended for budget traveler. I will saty here again if i come back to KL someday.

        Friendly and helpful staff, quiet surrounding but easy to access to anywhere, comfortable room and place

        Actually, I didn't have any plans or ideas what places that I must visit here. I just want to take a working leave for vacation here. But with help from the staffs, I manage to go to many places here, and experience things that I didn't get from my country. Tired of walking but very satisfied, worth it every money that I spend. The staffs are very helpful and informative. I would recommend Irsia BnB Guesthouse to my friends.

        Great budget option”

        good location, nice staff, basic breakfast included

        this was a great option for me as a solo traveller on a very tight budget who basically just needed a clean safe place to sleep in a convenient location. the room was very small with just a bed, 2 small shelves & fan but this wasn't a problem for me as there was plenty of room for me & my rucksack!i had worried about having only a fan as i always get air con - i am irish & not good with the heat!but the fan was fine, especially as i was only sleeping in the room. the building itself is fairly basic (concrete floors etc) but has been brightened up by bright colourful decorations.the reception area has a couple of sofas & a large flat screen tv, a couple of computers (charge for net on these but free wifi) and books to borrow. in a small area tothe front outide, there are tables & chairs (breakfast is laid out here). staff were very friendly & polite both during check in & when i needed some info. the breakfast is basic - white toast with butter/jam, oats and bananas plus tea or coffee but as a broke backpacker it was great to get this at the start of a days sightseeing. the hotel is right beside times sq shopping mall, with a large starbucks open till late, so this was a nice place to sit with a cuppa & my laptop in the evenings. the guesthouse is within walking distance (or public transport) of kl tower, klcc/petronas towers, pavillion shopping mall, chinatown etc. it was a 10 min taxi (depending on traffic) from puduraya bus station (only about ten mins walk also but needed a taxi with the rucksack). overall a great budget option for someone who just needs a base for busy days shopping & sightseeing.

        Best location ever!”

        Location is just a stone throw away from Time SQuare

        Can't ask for a better location! From Time Square, go to LG and head towards KFC. Through the exit next to KFC and once out of the carpark exit, can sight Irsia already! Way closer to Times Square than it looks on the map :D Friendly counter staff. Nice and clean room that was ready for me when I checked-in. Free bottle of mineral water. Comes with a little night light in the room. But my room didnt have a mirror which I noticed some of the other rooms have. Stayed on level 2 which had 2 showers with toilet inside and 1 shower room without. Hot water shower with nice water pressure :) Breakfast inclusive. Oats, bread (toaster available) and 3 different jams with coffee/tea. Coffee/tea is available for the whole day for free :) Times Square is just 30 seconds walk away. The rest of the shopping centres are just next to Time Square. Very good location :) I enjoyed my stay very much and I would definitely be staying back here again on my next KL visit :)

        Free coffee all day, friendly staff, location

        My boyfriend and I loved staying at irsia. We were comfortable and it had a great atmosphere. It is definitely a backpackers hotel. shared showers, free to use the kitchen and keep stuff in the fridge to make a meal. We arrived late and had no trouble to check in. There is staff at the door 24/7. You need to make a 50rm deposit for the key, but you get it back at checkout. I would definitely stay here again.

        This was actually my second time at Irsia. I chose Irsia again because of its convenient location to the monorail- Imbi station- as well being close to the shopping and food areas like Sungei Wang & Jalan Alor (24hrs food street). Besides its convenient location, the guesthouse is a good place to meet and interact with other travellers/backpackers.

        Location, friendly staff, WiFi

        Great little guest house for backpackers. Clean, friendly staff and environment, located in a convenient part of KL. We came from KL Sentral station and it's literally a 5min ride on the monorail from there. The monorail station is at the front of a mall and the Guesthouse is in the road behind the mall, so easiest to walk round the outside of the mall when you arrive, but after that it's easy to learn the hidden entrance behind the mall to walk straight through. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Easy to get to key attractions, or back to KL Sentral for things further afield, or the international airport etc...
