On the doorstep of busy Chinatown you enter a different world and will find quiet and clean rooms, fully equipped shared kitchen and spacious common areas for a very affordable price in KL situated right between sentral (trains), pudu (bus terminal) and not far from Bukit Bintang (malls and entertainment).

This is the best place to stay in Kuala Lumpur The relaxed atmosphere, incredible staff & top quality rooms make this the best place to unwind and meet people in KL. It's situated in the most convenient spot. Free city buses outside the door, KL station 1 minute away, Hop-on/Hop-Off tourist buses, China Town & Central Markets around the corner....

We just walked in and we knew it was nice place. The owner is open to any new idea to improve the place. They always making evening activities that you can join for free. Is a real backpackers place. Best place in KL. The place is clean and is good for the price.

Cool Little "birdsnest" ! Rooms are ok for the price and it's located very central in Chinatown. Trainstation is just few minutes away, food courts and markets too. Just make sure you don't get a room facing the street or you'll have a very noisy night! Would come back!

Based in Chinatown, Birdnest hotel great for backpackers... Such a chilled out vibe! Cats and iguanas (are in a cage) are also in the hostel! Showers and toilets are together...
