This was one of the best hostels I stayed in on this trip. It's very basic and the communal area could be a bit nicer, but everything was really clean and the overall atmosphere was really good. The staff was really friendly and helpful and the location is amazing! Many streetfood stalls, nightlife and major shopping malls just around the corner.


Great location in Bukit Bintang area. Close by to Alor Street for affordable food and durian :) Can be reach by GoKL tour bus for free. It located on level 3.


The staff is great, outgoing and chatty :) I went when there weren't many people who wanted to see much or do much in the city though. The location is absolutely perfect. It's not noisy, yet located right outside of Bukit Bintang MRT station and in the heart of the shopping district. You're about 1 block from the main shopping centre, 2-3 minute walk from a strip of delicious food and 15 min walk from the twin towers.

Comfy bed, good showers, excellent location! Definitely good value for money.


The best hostel so far based on my experience. (I have been to hostels in Kota Kinabalu, Bangkok and Jakarta.) Find Mr. Malaysia and Ms. South Africa at the reception for any concerns. They are very courteous and accommodating. Will definitely stay in this hostel again.


Facilities are acceptable, however, there are no keys for the doors. This wouldn't be so bad if there didn't appear to be an 'open door' policy, with people not even staying in the room coming and going at all hours. Staff weren't very friendly or approachable.


I really loved this hostel! The atmosphere is great, the staff helpful and friendly. It is located at the "Times Square" of KL, so just perfect to reach everything - either by foot or by monorail. The facilities were the cleanest I've ever seen in a Hostel so far, I was very surprised! Same for the rooms. Breakfast is okay, there's tea and coffee and toast with jam. The only thing I missed were windows, but the rest - top!


The location is fantastic! It's walking distance to everything (restaurants, monorail, convenience stores, shopping malls and Petronas Towers!). The beds are very clean & comfy. Toilets/showers are clean as well.


Great location to the main food markets and sites. Lots of facilities, very clean and has free breakfast of hot drink and toast.


I stayed two times in sunshine bedz and enjoyed it each time. The staff is really nice and social and the place is very clean. I recommend to book a deluxe room though which has windows.


The place is set up in a way that makes it really easy to meet fellow travelers. The bathrooms are clean but the bathroom area has some old wet floor mats (which you have to touch with your feet because shoes are not allowed). Also, only the rooms have AC as the general area can get pretty humid and warm. As other people noted, the entry smells like cheese from all the shoes that are left over there. Worth staying if on a budget, overall positive experience but don't expect much.


One of the best hostel in KL, very well located but you have to find the entry :)


Good hostel, nice atmosphere, facilities are very tidy


really nice hostel in one of the best neighboourhoods of KL. If you are loookin to hang around at night is also one of the best options. Installatations really nice and cleans, and personal from hostel very nice. If i will go again to KL i have no doubt to repeat place :)


The beds looked really comfortable but I wouldn't know. I spent most my nights at sunshine on the reception floor witch was also a very good nights sleep. If you take a shower make sure to press the button not turn the shower tap or it will not work,Or you can just use the tap this is also very effective. But all an all great place close to every thing you need with great people. Just watch out for that kiwi Steve guy he can be dangerous


Second time staying at Sunshine Bedz and loved it. Such a great crowd and fantastic atmosphere without going too far into "obnoxious party hostel" territory. Beds comfortable, lockers big, wifi good, location amazing!


Keep it that way and I will not stay here on my next visit


A great find, super clean and really close to everything! Only criticism is that it's on a very busy road which had roadworks whilst I was there! breakfast was just toast but across the road is a decent ish French deli and maccas (if you like that sort of thing) is practically next door


Great hostel stayed almost a week!! The staff were great every single one of them was chatty and were all willing to come and join in on our crazy nights out. I stayed in pretty much every type of room they had from the 6 bed dorms to the private rooms and all were clean well looked after and most importantly nice and cool! They had a simple breakfast included each morning (only made it 2 times!) Each night there was something happening and they knew where to go and what to do! Thanks Steve!
