Great stay at Sahabat. Good location near Jalan Alor where there is lots of food options. The staff were helpful. The little communal kitchen and courtyard was cosy, clean and well-equipped. The guesthouse was very clean and tidy. Our room was slightly small and the bathroom, although a wetroom, was a funny design, as everything got wet when you had... More

Nice staff, quiet place. It feels like being at home. The rooms may vary, we stayed in 3 different ones. The one we had for a whole week was not their best since they were overbooked but cleaning service took place each 2 days. Plus the staff is so nice that we did not bother that much. Good value for... More

Excellent location (just a short walk away from the Jalan Alor food street, Metro and other locations) is an added advantage to this hotel, which itself is little away from the crowd. The place is clean and earthly with a simple and relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were a little smaller than we hoped since we travelled with a toddler. Otherwise... More

My friend and I used Sahabat guesthouse 3 times as a base during the 4 weeks we travelled across Malaysia. Its location can't be better being in the heart of one of the most lively and visited areas of KL. Tucked in one of the little streets of Bukit Bintang it's unbelievably quiet and very near KL transport network. We... More

The Nutmeg room overlooks the street and front garden of the guesthouse with a small balcony furnished with a couch.

A small little hostel in the center of KL, which means all the stores and great foodstalls (e.g. Jalan Alor) are right around the corner and you can get there within three minutes walk. Still it is not noisy and you can sleep quite well. We had a room with an en-suite bathroom, the rooms are small but clean and... More

I stayed in this guesthouse two years ago and came back again on my most recent visit to KL. It is well located - right near to Bukit Bintang and many shopping malls, bars and eateries. This also means it's near the monorail - which is an easy connection if you are coming from the airport. The LTR is a... More
