“Great Location with a Relaxed Atmosphere!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2012

I've stayed in a lot of guest houses in KL, and so far this is one of the best. It's a family run business, and they're all really friendly and helpful. If you have any problems, they'll do whatever needs to be done to resolve the issue. The guesthouse gets a good cleaning every day, and most importantly, there aren't any bedbugs. There's coffee and tea 24 / 7, toast for breakfast, if you can get up that early, and a sink and fridge in the kitchen area. The location is perfect, hidden in a quite part of Chinatown, and as the name "Hub" implies, right in the middle of a triangle between 3 different metra lines (yellow, green and purple lines). The premises' are secure, you have to be buzzed in, so need to worry about non-guests wandering in and disappearing things. Great place!

The staff bend over backwards to make each and every person feel valued and important. Not to mention the fact that they run a very efficient place. While the place is definitely "budget" and meant for the budget traveler, it makes up for it in its location and staff. Moreover, the staff is more than happy to give all sorts of advice of where to go and what to see in KL.

The staff were very friendly. When I checked in they had no reference of my booking, but managed to sort me out with a better room than I had booked for. It was obvious that the staff are there to help you out and not just take your dollar, which was great.

The bed was probably the noisiest thing I have ever slept on and the room was very basic, but there was free toast in the morning which was great. The shower was ok, and the toilets were clean.

I would recommend this for anyone stopping over in KL for a night or two, not any longer though!

Had a wonderfully comfortable and affordable stay here, but keep in mind it is budget accommodations!

The walls are paper thin so if you want to sleep in bring your earplugs. Also some rooms share air-conditioning through a hole in an adjoining wall, so if your neighbor falls asleep with his light on (as mine did) you get light in your room all night as well!

Despite all this had a fantastic stay, and would stay there again (just not the same room!)

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't "share" air conditioning with the room next door.

I actually checked myself out of this guesthouse after seeing the room I had paid for in a couple of hours.

As per a previous negative comment, my room was a shoebox with shared air con with the room next to me (I.e you can hear every word the room next to u says) and this is not ideal for a light sleeper there is also no top sheet, and I can feel the springs through the thin mattress.

That being said, this is a BUDGET guesthouse, and after some research since this, KL is quite expensive for accommodation compared to other SE Asian cities so I believe that this guesthouse IS actually worth the money you pay for it. It does have free breakfast and wifi which are definately pluses and the family who the the guesthouse are just lovely!!!

If either of the things I mentioned above bother you, I would definately recommend spending an extra 10 ringgit or so for those little extra things. It will save you the disappointment, and save this lovely family who try very hard to make your stay a nice one, any unnecessary negative reviews from poor choice such as mine.
