          Legendary”

          I've stayed already a few times in this guesthouse and it was always a more than pleasant stay. The owner is very friendly and helpful, and also the other staff is always there to help you. Rooms are already a bit basic and run-down, but compared with other accomodations in the same area still a very good deal. Furthermore the location, just opposite TG's legendary restaurant, is more than ideal. One of the best areas I've ever stayed in South East Asia. I will definitely return to this place in the future, of that I'm quite sure already.

          Comfortable, the environment, room and the staff

          I am actually a regular at this guesthouse. Perhaps, they didn't notice me and my husband will always stays here once a month. The latest i stays there is on 10th,13th May. And compare to the last time i stayed here, it's not that private anymore. So many male staffs at night and they keep on staring when u enter the guesthouse after ur activities. I chose this guesthouse just because the environment at first, comfortable and also have breakfast included. But I would like to give compliment to Khalid and also the lady at the counter on the day time. Great and friendly service! I hope there will be less male staffs at night because that makes us the customers feels uncomfortable with all the staring. Btw, my name is Shu.

          Centrally located in KL”

          Location, location, location

          For a backpacker type place it is really nice. Location in Bukit Bintang is superb with several bars around the area and Chinatown just a street away. Value for money for sure. The rooms were small but nice, and for 2 nights it was really all we needed. Staff were also delightful, and helpful whenever possible. If you are looking to enjoy nightlife or go sightseeing in KL, then this place will do just fine.

          Distinctly average. ”

          Very close to Jalan Alor, reasonably clean, competitive rates.

          Stayed here following it featuring on the Lonely Planet website. No idea why they have recommended it. Ok place, but really nothing particularly good or bad about the place. Rooms small and beds unexceptional, bathroom works fine, but the atmosphere was not friendly and the staff did their job without being too friendly (aside from 1 guy who kindly allowed me to have breakfast late). Next time will stay in Sunshine Bedz at Bukit Bintang, much nicer place for less money.

          Budget hostel”

          kind staff

          if you are in a very tight budget this hostel is okay. But if you can spare more bucks go and find a better hostel. Location not quite good, you have to climb on a steep hill before you get to the bus stop or Bukit Bintang monorail station. About 10-minute walk. Hostel doesn't have a lift. Stairs are madenof wood. 2nd floor's flooring is mare of wood as well. So when someone walks on the hallway you can hear it. A/c quite old but can get cold after anfew hours. The linens.. The linens seemed to be used, the beddingd were just folded when we got to the room but were not new! The towels were new though. Bathroom inside the room is ok, with heater and toilet. there a lot of food stalls nearby. I'd recommend the small chinese street food stall in front of the hostel, in the alley. We ordered chinese food for 7mr only, very tasty! Night life in this area can be very noisy! Breakfast is bread with jams and coffee or tea. Staff is helpful though, very kind and let us use their phone to call our contact taxi driver for free.

          Convenient and relaxing”

          Good location, friendly staff, comfortable breakfast ^^

          We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. It is quite good with this price because it is in centre of Kl and also in food central, and it includes breakfast which is simple but in fairly good quality so it really help our budget. On one hand, it is good because the staff were negotiable because he helped us to change from non air conditioner into room with conditioner, and also reduce the price when we stayed in the room for one more night. On the other hand, we do not know if he did not do that, how will we feel about the room and service :D . In the end, we feel pleasant with the hotel.

          Convenient location but gross bathrooms”

          location, staff

          This guesthouse was recommended by Lonely Planet as a top pick. It is in a great location in the golden triangle and within walking distance to many great restaurants, bars and shopping. The staff are friendly. The rooms were very musty and had a weird smell. The bathrooms don't have a window and are very gross with black stuff on the walls. I was disgusted and went to buy some slippers to wear in the bathroom. The communal area downstairs is good, but there are mosquitoes if you sit outside. The wifi worked great in the lobby but was spotty in the rooms. The pillow cases had stains on them, but was told these were permananent stains and the pillow case was clean. The staff did change it upon my request.

          Not bad”

          friendly staff, good price, good location

          Not hard to find. Easy to find good food and entertainment (in the neighbourhood, not in the guesthouse). The staff were friendly. The closest toilet had a broken seat so I generally went downstairs for bathrooms and showers.

          The location, privacy & the room.

          Great and more privacy this time! No more male staffs lingering around the lobby at night. Me and my husband felt comfortable coming to our room at night. Just need to increase the cleanliness of the room. Overall very satisfying. Thanks for issuing my last feedback regarding the male staffs at night. Will be back next month!

          Good for a very short stay

          you have to go with map to find this hotel because not every driver knows this small hotel. eight is not really hotel but more like an old apartment so you should stay here only for short time. if you want to find some food this place is the heaven, especially for nonmuslim. location not far from monorail station, you can walk not more than 10 minutes from this place.

          Waste of Agoda cash”

          I booked in at this place using my Agoda cash (as it was about to expire). I was initially fascinated by the photos, but was a complete opposite when I checked in. Not only did I not receive my free breakfast (despite having indicated on my booking), I even left my phone charger and never got a message from the concierge. Not even sure if the beds are sanitized, so it was like, sleeping in the slums of Bukit Bintang.
