      Cheap hostel in Chinatown ”

      It’s very basic and cheap, the location is very good (Chinatown). - Room (blanket/sheets/towel) was clean. - The shower/toilet could have been more clean. - The chilling/reception area needs a makeover! The space is great but it needs an upgrade ;) - One guy from the reception is very helpful/nice. The other guy (with cap) is very weird and burps the whole time, which is very disgusting.

      The room is so cheap that it is totaly okay that the room is small and has no window! We stayed before in an other hotel exactly the same room but it cost 40 Ringgit! If you want a nicer room in KL you have to pay more! The staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay! The room and bathroom is clean! We would stay there again!

      Smoking permitted. Do you like cigarette smoke?”

      First, the good stuff. Excellent price, comfortable bed, great WiFi. Now the bad stuff: The bed occupied 66% of the room; we had trouble getting around each other. No hot water in the shower. The upholstery was falling off the chairs and sofas in the lobby. No air conditioning in the lobby. But the worst part is that smoking is permitted. They even had ash trays on the coffee tables for the smokers. In short, I have no plans to go back and I can not recommend it to others.

      location

      location very good, at the busiest street of petaling street. but the hotel was poorly design. itself is an old building, with poor renovation, poor room compartmentation, poor sound barrier. Others talking at walkway can be clearly heard in room. Shaky floor due to poor renovation. bed comfort was lower than average.
