We were extremely surprised upon arriving at the guesthouse that so many people had given it such glowing reviews. This is a pretty shabby hostel that is incredibly hot. The sheets on all the beds looked at least five years old and the towels were barely usable. The fans in the rooms barely kept it cool enough to fall asleep....

Owl have to be honest with you, this is one of the best places we've feather stayed. Toucan relax and rejuvenate at this lovely guest house, with Chinatown around the corner. We've been raven about it to all of our friends. The rooms are clean and eminently affordable, with a laid back and welcoming atmosphere and easy to get to...

Probably the best guesthouse in all chinatown! Good price comparing with the others and really clean. The owners are very friendly and always very helpfull. It has a good kitchen with fridge and a nice terrace. Very good internet conection and a nice couch area where you can meet other travellers.

We arrived in KL after a long day of travels and the evening was settling. We were tired and hungry and started to look for a room. What we saw either smelled bad or was filthy and we ended up stumbling upon Birdnest. The setting of the guesthouse inside is brilliant; a maze of corridors and spacious common rooms, high...

As soon as I set foot in this place, I was enchanted by the vibe. The guesthouse is very well located and the staff were super helpful. It does get quite hot in the rooms, but the terrace and the rooftop totally make up for it! Would totally recommend !!

By writing the recommendation I´d like to explain why I did spend a couple of weeks in this hostel. Due to the fact I didn´t see any other hostel I can´t compare with others. But I do believe the time I spent at Birdnest ll speaks for itself that it is a terrific place. Here are some facts about the...

Clean friendly hostel, good prices and location. Only issue is with the air conditioned rooms! For some reason air conditioned rooms only have air conditioning between the hours of 18:00 and 11:00, and it's on constantly during these hours whether you're in the room or not. It's off constantly outside of these hours whether you're in the room or not......

I want to start by saying that I think this hostel has much potential to be very good but for now is average. I think this hotel would be good for a one night or two night stay as you may find it difficult to sleep here - the rooms are hotter than one could expect (even though it's Asia)...

Peacefull place in great location to see Chinatown and have a short and easy access to Sentral Station. The friendly and helpfull staff and the lounge area create a very inviting and warm athmosphere. I was happy to come back again and again :)
