“cant wait to come back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2012

The Nest is very clean, in a quiet location, hard to find but definitely worth the effort. The staff are very helpful and the family room we stayed in had loads of space. Free breakfast and internet were great and its close to lots of cheap local restaurants and 10 minute walk to monorail station. If you need somewhere to stay in KL this is the place to go!! After staying in many places, this is the one my children never wanted to leave!!

Have always stayed in a nearby hostel, but since that closed down we decided to try something new thos time. The Nest was an excellent choice! It is close to everything and is nice and clean. The staff are welcoming and has a lot of knowledge of the area. Free Internet, free breakfast, niced common area and balcony, 24 hour security, luggage storage and more. However, I wouldn't want to stay there alone as a girl, because the streets surrounding it are not the most welcoming. And the taxi driver used a long time to find it so it is best to show them on the Lonely Planet map where it is. Other than that I have only positive things to say about this hostel. Will recommend it for anybody wanting to stay close to CBD and shopping areas for a low cost. It is a great hostel!

This is now our second stay at the Nest during which we have stayed in 3 different types of rooms.

All have been very clean, comfortable and cozy. The rooms are a bit small but it is to be expected in KL at these prices. All the rooms have AC and Hot showers which function very well. The WIFI connection is very fast.

The staff are always friendly, welcoming, and professional.

The location is practical, close to monorail and to much of the Bukit Bintang shopping.

We've appreciated the great value of the Nest and will come back next time we are in KL.

A really nice hostel with clean rooms and somewhat spacious (stayed at the deluxe double room). Private bathroom which worked fine for us, although the floor stays wet hours after a shower but no big deal. OK breakfast with toast, fruit (mostly bananas), jam, butter, tea and coffee (the latter two is free all day and night). The location is in the heart of Bukit Bintang where you A LOT of shopping malls, food courts, restaurants (especially on Jalan Alor), nightlife and much more so you wont get bored. Because of this it is somewhat noisy outside during nighttime as well but this shouldn't be a problem if you get yourself some earplugs.
The staff was really friendly. The helpfulness varied though. Depending on who was at the reception when you asked for something (i.e. how to get somewhere or checking accommodations in other parts of Malaysia) the response would vary greatly. Sometimes the staff would make the phone calls themselves and spend (what it seemed) an hour to find out how things were. Other times we would just get a short two word answer. And this was actually after asking the SAME question twice to two separate staff members during the same day. This actually changed our route through Malaysia in the end (for the better) so I think it's pretty important thing to get right.
This doesn't change the fact that this is a really nice and clean hostel which we would recommend to anyone and if we were to come back to KL again, we would surely book it.
