Most of KL's budget accommodation are terrible and overpriced. Owners are intent on cramming in the maximum number of bodies. Many of the Chinese hotels are dirty, badly maintained and not comfortable for solo women . Most travelers seem to use KL as a transit place - in and out as quickly as possible. This is a shame because KL has much to offer the visitor. If the accommodation situation improved, people would stay longer.We found one hostel in the BB (Bukit Bintang) Area that is a good exception with its friendliness, cleanness and homely feeling.

Mid Level hotels occasionally offer promotional prices - RM80+ for an a/c d ab, TV. They are excellent value if you can stretch your budget a little. There are many in the Chinatown area, you can easily find them by walking around.

KL is famous for bedbugs.

Take any bus that has "Lot10" written on. 5 min walk from Lot10 Shopping Mall. From Puduraya bus station 13 min. walk. The only GH in KL that deserves the "travellers' hostel" title.
