Clean but basic. Do not get rooms facing the street - very noisy. Close to Chinatown and Central market and transportation. Very helpfull staff! Breakfast only toast and jam or peanut butter with choice of coffee and tea.

I never really liked the idea of staying in KL. That too anywhere close to the mess that Chinatown and surroundings have become. Anyhow, the explorers guesthouse seemed decent for what i paid. They've got plenty rooms. WiFi not too impressive and depending on where u are put up, you're most likely to not have wifi reach. So, they say...

Explorers is very accessible and clean with friendly staff and many friendly guests. Pasar Seni is just around the corner, and the free bus stop for the purple line is a block or two away. There are 2 rail stations a little further (5-10 min walking). I stayed in the female dorm, which has 4 beds and AC. Unfortunately there...

-it felt like staying in a bunker. very dark, no window in the dorm, bed was average, the room was very much just a hole with the bunk beds in in...nothing appealing, nothing to socialize -staff mistakenly cleaned my bed instead of another one and removed all my stuff that lied on my bed (like pyjama, jacket, book, water bottle)....

A cheap and comfortable hostel located right near central market and Chinatown, a short walk to train station and bus station to get around the city. Free breakfast was simple, tea, coffee and toast. Dormitory beds were fine and had a very social atmosphere. Only downside is there is only wifi in the lobby

A very heartwarming receptionist, the place is so clean, and the service was so good. They do care about all the costumers there. They even helped us to have another option of guesthouse (bcs they were full for the next day). A very recommended guesthouse to stay in while youre in KL

Really central, easy to get to from the airport (kli train from airport to kl central & then take another train to pesar seni which is one stop away). You can make tea/coffee at any time , breakfast included, rooms are basic but clean (we had one with no window, but it was fine), showers & toilets are very clean.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a double room and will definitely be staying again on our way home. Shared bathrooms are spacious and very clean with nice hot showers. Staff are super helpful and it's barely a 2 minute walk from Chinatown, Central market and Pasar Seni train station (only one stop after KL Sentral). Absolutely loved it!
