Great location! Only steps away from the Patronas towers and right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of KLCC. Somehow, the lounge and rooms were still very quiet and pleasant. Excellent for backpackers and solo travelers who just need a place to drop off their things and get a good night’s sleep. ...

Really nice place to stay! Love the breakfast, you can choose so much things! Also common area is really comfy, nice design. The only thing I didn’t like 15 people in one room is crazy, could be noisy, but overall I would recommend to stay there :)

I so loved the minimalistic vibe and the aesthetic of this hotel. We enjoyed our room so much and the hotel staff made sure it was kept well and clean.

とてもオシャレなペインティングが施されたゲストハウスです。ビーチサンダルは持参を(近くにセントラルマーケットがあるので、なければそこで調達してもいいと思います。)。 パサールセニ駅からはほんとに近いですが、出入口が見づらいのでちょっと注意深く探すといいと思います。1度分かれば大丈夫だと思います。 ドアのすぐ横にインターホンがあるのでインターホンを押して下さい。スタッフの方が開けてくれます。因みに、外出から戻った時も同様です(時間帯問わずにハウスに戻る時は押してね、とのことでした。必ずスタッフの誰かがカウンターに居るそうです。)。 中に入ると階段があります。階段を上ってすぐ右に靴を置くエリアがあるので、そこで靴を脱ぎ、持参のビーチサンダルに履き替えます。上履き外履き分けているようです。 ...

Good location next to Chinatown. AC worked perfectly and the back porch area was a cool place to hang out at night. The lady at the front desk was really nice and always smiled and said hello.
