Reggae Mansion Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

This hostel is definitely the most international.Well air-conditioned pods which each have their own light and electricity source allows for privacy with the opportunity to socialize once you leave the pod. While location is not the best, other hostels on the main street are small and old, and share entrances with 'massage parlours.' Constant surveillance inside the room was a little excessive, and the bar is definitely loud at night (even for a party hostel) . There was also a rat problem.


The "Amount Due On Arrival" is 30% than what Hostelworld tells you!! They say it's due to taxes and surcharge, but it makes this hostel EXPENSIVE. It was vey quiet, clean and in a good location though. You can definitely get some sleep and free food, but don't go here to meet other travelers. Everyone sticks to themselves and only talks to you if they need something. Mostly it's high school students on school trips, so makes socializing difficult. Front desk is also not that friendly.

Sunflower Place Silom

This is more of a hotel than a hostel, but for that I would say it is great value for your money. The room was spotless and had AC, towels, water, fridge, shampoo, soap...a lot more than we expected. The bathroom is a real bathroom and they clean the place for you every day and even make your bed for you. I was really impressed with the facilities and the staff walk you through the whole process. Area is in a Japanese district and there are gay/fetish bars closeby, but this is normal.
