We are experienced travellers and happy to put up with crappy accommodation but felt we were mislead by the reviews of this place Pros -location - close to train station and Chinatown -AC worked -staff friendly -free water and breakfast (but breakfast is only toast) Cons -tiny rooms with dangerous electrical sockets - all sinks smell of sewage - toilet/shower areas need more regular cleaning -bathrooms

Perfect location for exploring the city, close to lots of food stalls and to the public transportations (there is a free bus). Good value for what u pay.

          Submarine - only for no-fus solo travelers”

          only 1 ; Location

          This is for backpackers and solo travellers - strictly no-frills B&B style. Even the room with single-bed has no built-in showe / toilet, and TV with limited local channels. However, it is well located - with the Pasar Seni LRT station - and Chinatown - just a short walk. Hence, given its relatively low rate, no fuss solo travelers may wish to consider staying at this joint.

          The location is good but the lady is so unhelpful.Just keeps her earphones on the whole day and doesn't answer . Check out is 12, we thought it is at 1 so we went to check out at 12:25. She charged us extra 10$ for the 25 minutes although all rooms were empty and nobody was waiting ! If asked for deposit for the key make sure you get a receipt otherwise she may make a story to keep it . It happened with another guests too The other guy is helpful and friendly . The hotel is close to MTR and well located .toilets and bathroom are shared and dirty .

          Not as good as Suzie's Guesthouse”

          location, cleanliness

          Nice and clean, very similar to Suzie's Guesthouse which is across the road, if you can stay there instead but this is a nice alternative if not available.

          Not so clean and bright as the pictures showed”

          near to the LRT station and there are free bus terminals just within 5-minute walk

          The room and the shared washroom are not so clean, actually they are smelly, I think there are other better choices in KL with same price
