I really enjoyed my stay at stepp Inn guest house! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms and bathrooms clean. As it's really central it's easy to walk to most places like Chinatown, the old town, Petronas, botanical garden,....


The staff is really nice. Allan and Amanda where really helpful and they give you very good advice of where and how to go around KL. The hostel is well located BUT the two different rooms where I stayed had bed bugs and weren't clean and all the installation are lil old.


Great atmosphere and friendly staff makes this rather dated place a good choice for KL.


Amanda was awesome! And i thoroughly enjoyed our little chats - the hostel was a bit dingy, old and not very well maintained. The bed I was given was dodgy at best. On hostelworld there was a 'check' next to airconditioning. There is no aircond in the common area. This can be misleading.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry to hear that your room did not meet your expectations. In order to avoid disappointments, we always recommend our guests to visit our website and to check the pictures and other info provided there. Nevertheless, we have remove the AC (check) on Hostel world to avoid any confusion.


Room was damp, there was on possibility to open the Windows. In generał the whole place needs renovation


We've been travelling for a month in Southeast Asia and in Step Inn Guest House was where we found the most helpful and nicest staff. Without a doubt, the best thing in this hostel! The staff's advice made our stay in KL incomparably worthier. Location is nice as everything is within reasonable walking distance but it could be better. Facilities are a bit out-dated and the rooms are too hot, with an insufficient fan on the wall. However, staff makes up for every flaw and I'd recommend it!

needlessly dirty and unkempt- several dodgy characters hanging around with no obvious function.good central location but everything very shabby.adequate for a one night stopover but no more


The location of the hostel is really good. The directions from the airport were spot on as well. The staff is really nice and pretty helpful when it comes to getting info about things to do around the city. The room itself was very rudimentary and it wasn't particularly clean; there was an ant nest in the bathroom. All-in-all it wasn't horrible, but you could probably find a better place.

Thank you for your review and staying with us for 5 Nights. It is a pity that you did not bring any of these issues to the attention of us during your stay as we could have rectified these easily solvable issues instantly. We always relish the opportunity of showing our guests who have not had a very good stay that we can lift our game on their next stay to prove that these issues are a once off. Whilst we won't get a chance to do that for you we do nonetheless appreciate the feedback


staff is friendly, very knowledgeable about the area, helpful. The rooms are basic, toilets had problems, water supply was a problem so sometimes no water in the middle of a shower. other patrons had bed bug problems..looked like they had taken a red marker and stabbed at their bodies for five minutes...seriously.

Hello, Thank you for staying at our guest house, and we apologize for the inconveniences you experienced. Unfortunately, due to lack of rain there has been a water shortage throughout the city, so we are experiencing random water shut-offs. Bed bugs is a guest houses biggest issue and we take strict measures to ensure the rooms are properly checked but occasionally they come with guests luggage or clothing which we can’t control and treat immediately.


For the price you're paying, Step Inn, right in the middle of KL, is very reasonable. It's not perfect - a bit shabby, and my room was a furnace, even with the fan on the whole time, though it was late July, so what can you do? - but if you're not a fussy traveller and you're just after a cheap, convenient place to crash, you can do a lot worse than Step Inn.


Staff are amazingly friendly and have a fantastic english, which is not easy to find in KL. However there's a building being constructed by the hostel side, what made the environment a little noisy and hard to sleep in. Don't take the room without AC, KL is a burning city and AC is completely needed.


The staff really cares about you and tries to make you stay in KL as comfortable as possible. After 5 minutes I felt like home. The reception is in a big living room with cosy couches, perfect to chill after a long walk in the city or a long flight ;) Markus and Dimitra


Great hostel....wonderful location.....great staff....total value for money
