First of all the staff is super nice! The dorm 16 people is more than OK for 30- Ringgit. The mattress is not the best ever but for a few days at that price, I don't complain. Showers are great for a hostel. Nice place...More

I don't understand why reviews of this hostel are so good. It was ugly and dirty and the bathroom was smelly. The only good points are great location and very helpful staff. I would recommend it only for people on VERY thin budget.

About
Description
Located just opposite KL Sentral the hub for transportation in and out of Kuala Lumpur PODs The Backpackers Home offers affordable accommodation without compromising on atmosphere and cleanliness. More Rest. Assured. Our common room is equipped with internet access, wifi, door security tags, a library as well as a wide selection of local traditional games. PODs offer trips and links to the roads less travelled, a choice to stay at a Perma- culture farm or an orang asli hut. For the more adventurous, Friends Of PODs have many exciting trips and hikes into the Malaysian rain forest and quietly hidden crystal clear waterfalls. You may join our free R2B2 wheelie rides and experience Malaysia through the eyes of the locals. As the people from PODs are mostly from the art scene, do not be surprised if we break out into song and dance every first Friday of the month. Less
