Positive Reviews

Central location within bustling Kuala Lumpur.

This guesthouse enjoys a prime position within the Malaysian capital city, so you'll have plenty of attractions on your doorstep when you book a room at this place. You're also just a six minute walk from the nearest train station that connects you with the rest of the city.

Good option for backpackers and budget travellers.

The room rates here are kept very low indeed, so you won't have to spend too much money to get a room. Overall it offers fantastic value for money accommodation, so book a room at this place to save yourself some cash!

The staff are friendly and happy to help you.

The people working at this place offer great hospitality and are enthusiastic when chatting about things to do in the area. If there is anything you need assistance with just ask, the staff are more than happy to help you.

Negative Reviews

Can't access the free Wi-Fi in the rooms.

If you want to use the complimentary internet here then you'll have to head out into the hallway or the communal lounge area to get connected. The free Wi-Fi signal doesn't reach into all the rooms, which is a real shame.

Noise can be a issue because of the thin walls.

The walls in between the rooms are quite thin and sound travels easily between them, so if you have noisy neighbours be prepared to be disturbed. Make sure you pack some earplugs if you're a light sleeper.

Some of the rooms don't have a window

Not all the rooms here have a window, and the lack of natural light or ventilation means these rooms can appear a bit dingy and be rather smelly. Try to avoid these rooms if you possibly can.
