Have stayed here before - it is an excellent place, friendly, clean and quiet !! Great to find a place that is there for your needs, and the people working there, have a lot of travel experience between them, and can identify with you !! And it' not a party place !! Bit of a change from many small places - actually people who like travelling !! Definitely recommend highly, and I've stayed in lots of places !!
Amazing place, super close to KL Sentral, totally chill common area, 24 hour check in, lockers. stayed in 4 bed but the 14 bed one looked better, with a huge window and really spacious.
The location is right at the crossroads of every public transit imaginable and the staff are very helpful. However, it was not a sociable place for the two days I was there.

There is not much privacy in the privates with the walls opening up from above, the privatedouble is also in the smallest in se-asia category. Otherwise in general things worked and many peeps hanging in the common areas, which are goodsized. Ok hostel, great location for transit.
Great place. Dorm is clean and the common room a great place to relax, eat your food or talk to other backpackers/the staff.
This hostel is secure, clean and the staff are very friendly. The location is in a fairly dull and isolated part of the city (nowhere is walkable) but having said that it is a few minutes walk from KL sentral which is basically the hub for all the train lines to get anywhere in the city. Not a place to stay for a party atmosphere but overall I enjoyed my stay and would happily return.
Loved the atmosphere and the private pods are excellent. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly and I would definitely stay here again when I come back to KL. Location is excellent, just a 5 minute walk to KL Sentral train/metro station.
Very clean and secure place, located close to KL Sentral and little India great street food all around, close to transport to get everywhere but if you go out to party it's expensive to get back after trains stop running
I would love to stay there when I visit KL again.
Located within spitting distance (don't test this literally) of KL Sentral, this will forever be my Go-To Hostel when staying in Kuala Lumpur. The staff are friendly and helpful, the common room is spacious and away from the sleeping area so everyone gets a good rest. The rooms are comfortable, and whilst the partitions do not reach the roof, this helps with airflow and keeping cool. Bathrooms are basic but effective. Will definitely stay here again, and recommend to anyone going to KL.
Very good staff and comfort dorm. This is the best choice in KL Sentral location

PODs is in the best location - 5 minutes to the main bus station and all the local transportation. The staff (Ayham, Komeil, Rizmal, Peter) are absolutely fantastic and will help you in whatever way possible and answer all your questions. You will read that the walls do not go to the ceiling but I did not find this a bad thing. The guests were quiet . Note: A sign on the refrigerator asking the guests to name & date their food may help reduce others using food that is not theirs.
Friendly staff, excellent location, near KL sentral, clean bathroom and toilet, bed is ok, breakfast is good
Had an ok stay from here, was really easy to find and close to the sentral station so i liked the location!
PODs was a wonderful hostel; nice and clean, good location and with great staff. I, like many others I think, stayed here for only one night as its the closest hostel to KL Sentral and makes for an easy onward trip, but I wish I'd stayed for longer. If I travel to KL again, I won't hesitate to book a longer stay with PODs. P.S. A lot of other reviewers complained about noise due to partitioned rooms but I really didn't find it an issue at all and I think you can safely ignore this point. :)
Why is it a wonderful place ? Because : - it is VERY clean - it is quiet - the location is juste near from KL Sentral, and regarding the difficulties to cross the roads in KL, this is GREAT
Great value for money, with air conditioning and excellent location
Nice big common area. Since the walls don't go to the ceiling it's not really that private in a single but it was okay. Staff was very helpful and the location is right near KLCC so it was perfect for me.
