This was our second stay at Reggae Guest House and the staff were always friendly and helpful and the location for the petaling street market and the Paser Seni train station. My main negative for this stay was that the sheets were not changed of for the 3 nights we were there and my girlfriend was absolutely eaten alive with bed bugs....I wasn't attacked and we did not experience this on the first stay so may just have been bad timing but certainly wasn't ideal.


Hostel was decent. Not much in the way of social area. Free breakfast of toast, tea & coffee. Staff helpful and friendly. Told us lots about the sights and how to get there. Very chilled vibe and close to the train station and Chine Town.


nice hostel close to chinatown and near two rapid transit connections. Free internet,and hot showers....would stay again if my first choice was booked up....thanks


Well it's a good hostel except that we got bed bugs. We reported it to the staff and they didn't seem surprised. They just changed our room and we later saw they had put someone else in our bed bug room. I would definitely not stay here or recommend this place considering their lax attitude about bed bugs.


Hostel was nice a quite. I got a good night sleep both nights and didn't have any problem with noise from the Reggae Bar downstairs. Would recommend going to the Reggae Mansion rooftop to meet other backpakers and travelers if you are looking to meet new people. Late at night the walk is a little sketchy between Reggae Guesthouse and Reggae Mansion so it might be best to walk with someone else. I walked between the two rather late by myself and was fine but it might be better with a buddy.

This review is for Reggae Mansion. Due to a mix up in booking, while I booked at Reggae Guest House, I wound up staying at Reggae Mansion because all bookings had been transferred over to there. I wish I had been notified. Reggae Mansion is a bit pricier than some of the other hostels, but well worth it. The facilities are great, the staff is excellent. The only issue I have is with the beds - specifically, climbing the terrifyingly steep ladder of death to the top bunk.


The tour with Ong the driver made it all worthwhile.


great people, very helpful and fair. we had a problem with the reservation/cancelation and they didn´t charge anything extra for that. they also help finding other hostels. was just great.

Hi, what a great place to stay! Excellent friendly staff (Achmed & Floyd) that make you feel at home. The place is clean and security is fabulous. I stayed with my teenage daughter and we were so impressed that we came back again when we returned to KL. I highly recommend this place to all travellers on a budget. The location too is fabulous and only 5 minutes from the railway station. Carol Ward from Australia
