sorry about the waiting. its bcoz of confusion of your country. you booked as malaysian but when you register you wrote as australian. so that was the confusion. breakfast is from 730am to 1030am. you check out at 6am. we cant serve you breakfast at 6am. sorry about that.


The staff were nice and friendly, gave us directions and helped us in every way they could. Will definitely go back!!


Nice hostel.. I would love to come again

Hi Alvin. tq very much and wish to see you again.


Manager Robert was very kind & helpful! I appreciated getting an upgraded room after they temporarily lost my reservation (thanks again!) Location is convenient near main train station. As a non-smoker, I had a problem with guests smoking in the hostel's only doorway - in front of guests' rooms. For Western females who are accustomed to sitting on the toilet, the consistently wet toilet from others' use of the geyser and not cleaning up after themselves was annoying. Good value for price though!


Great hostel, can't beat the location - right on the centre and 10 ringgit from the Airport. Friendliest and most helpful staff I've met so far! definitely recommend this hostel and will be back!

The owner of Central Lodge (Robert) is an amazing person, he goes above and beyond to ensure his guests have the best possible stay. Right beside the KL Sentral station so easy to get anywhere in the city and outside. Great value is you are a budget traveller.


Location was not easy to find, yet location was central. When you get to Sentral, ask for Brickfields, that's the side of the Sentral Station you need to find. Room was clean and tidy, a good view from my room. Room very hot inside with fan, I recommend one of the air conditioned rooms in hot Malay weather. The owner spoke good English and was very helpful. He gave good advice on tourist spots in the city. Overall, very good value for money. You get what you pay for ...

thanks ,,,the location is very easy if you follow our guide. YMCA is the landmark


This place has changed hands, used to be run by 3 older men who were very pleasant. Now young people, the girl was OK but the boy surly. Didn't serve breakfast till late. Still would stay there again for the location near Central station and airport buses.

hi, it didnt change hand but new, old people retrired and wants to relax. breakfast time is from 730 am to 1030 am. see you next time.


Stayed for a night as i had an early morning flight .. Real close to KL sentral . Room was clean and other facilities were good too .


Booked for a room for one night because of an early flight in the morning. Staff was helpful and accepting of our early morning check out. Furnitures were not new of course, a bit of paint here and there to work on, but we did have plenty of space in our room, got a hot shower and managed to get a dinner in town because of easy access to public transport. Perfect for a easy night in town and close access to direct transport to the airport.


The owner of Central Lodge was very nice, but it was so dirty there! Also there were no blankets provided and the rooms were not very pretty.

hi, we have been keeping our place clean all the time, i dont know where you found it dirty, tq have a good day.


Quite comfortable. Cheap. Clean. Close with KL Sentral. Just for rest I'll give 9 out of 10. But if you want a little bit luxury 5 out of 10. Like always, U know what you paid. There's money, there's quality. But overall is good.
