I checked in this place because I arrived in KL around 3 am, with no specific itinerary or booking. All I knew was I wanted to see Petaling Jaya, so I asked taxi drivers for its location and walked towards it from Puduraya. I walked pass this place and entered two other BB/Inns but they were full as it was...

Awful hostel, I only chose as I arrived late and it was raining heavily. Bathrooms are a mess, service is terrible, spotted a rat within the first hour and the rooms are covered in bugs. Do not stay here.

was rushing for a budget place and grabbed this one. Overall the staff seemed rather disinterested in general. After two days, when I asked if they could recommend a place where I could buy spray for the bed, because the bugs or ticks or white little crabs or whatever they were were eating me alive, to the point that I...

Don't consider this. For years, it has steadily declined. Now it is like a homeless shelter for people. Rats, disgusting bathrooms, noisy. The upstairs dorm used to be OK for a night but they've wrecked it by adding in walls and a bunch of rooms to bring up the revenue stream. Only because i arrived at midnight exhausted but NEVER...

The room was pretty large, old fashioned. Not that dirty. Airco was working fine. The toilets looked dirty but was just old and wet due to the way of cleaning oneself with water. The showers are often cold but were all right. If you really need a room and other options are full, go here for a night of two.

We stayed here last year because we were on a budget. It was absolutely disgusting and would not recommend it to anyone. Myself and my boyfriend stayed in a private room, the room itself was ok. Very basic, with no windows, but didn't seem to have bugs. My biggest problem was the bathrooms. They were by far the most vile...

For some reason (mostly laziness) I stayed in Red dragon a couple of days, and the last time I stayed there I had to change room three times because I found bugs in the rooms. It is absolutely infested, and it didnt appear as if they cared about the problem at all. And as the other reviewers already have mentioned,...

I checked in this hotel as no rooms were available in nearby hotels. It was really an awful experience to stay in this hotel. The toilets were so dirty and nobody from hotel management ever seems to bother to fix the broken toilets, shower etc… The rooms were though of a reason size but they were smelly. The hotel is...
