Property Description

PODs The Backpackers Home & Cafe provides affordable budget accommodation for backpackers and travelers. Our spacious common area offers a cozy and relaxing atmosphere with a green cafe offering a wide range of food inclusive of vegetarian and vegan meals as well as coffee, tea, fruit juices, milkshakes, and of course beers! We are an eco-friendly venture, we use metallic straws, paper bags and we are doing our best to reduce the consumption of single-use plastic. We have our own stage where guests are free to jam together and sometimes we have live performances too!

Our location is in Kuala Lumpur, just a stone throw away from KL Sentral station, a hub where most of trains and buses are in and out of the city giving easy access to many major attractions around. The location is also very convenient to catch buses to both airports, KLIA and KLIA2. Housed in a new building in Brickfields with abundant choices of local food around and the fusion of colorful cultures, trinkets and merchandise traders, all nested in beautiful pre-war shops with things sold that might be familiar even to our Mothers? PODs is also situated in an area where lots of government and religious centers focus on the development of the less fortunate, such as the deaf and blind community and orphanages.

Our Single PODs and Double PODs offer privacy away from the main 16-bed and 4-bed dorms. The PODs have mattresses on raised platforms to give a Zen like feel. Some come with tinted windows, all have individual fans and lights. Our dorms have double bunk beds and personal lockers and are in a large area with plenty of personal space. Each floor has two or three sharing eco-friendly kampong (village) design hot water shower cabins. Central AC units are placed strategically with blowers to all PODs and all designs and themes that have been put up are chosen as best to compliment and promote our eco-friendly theme, which is, to be simple, and always go green. And when traveling, respect the Earth!

PODs always values the important things travelers or backpackers need hence we provide free breakfast, free WiFi, safe deposit box, personal lockers, personal universal wall plug, clean linen and towel, luggage storage, laundry service, and most importantly, lots of fun and interesting activities! Our prices range between that affordable shared dormitories and reasonable private PODs, with a promise of clean, friendly and hospitable services just like home! Drop in, stay with us, make your journey as pleasant, as comfortable and as memorable as possible.

    This hostel is located in the middle of the Little India, very close to the KL Sentral train/bus stations. The most convenient hostel in Malaysia. It is well managed and comfortable.

    OK for the price. Didn't feel very clean or secure - had a female dorm and a man came into one of the beds in the middle of the night then another man came in about an hour later and woke him up and told him to move. So didn't get much sleep!! And my room smelt very strongly of soup - lols. Staff were friendly though and fine if you're just looking for somewhere cheap for the night I guess!

    This place has bedbugs!!! Despite the practical location and friendly staff, I highly recommend people not to go to this hostel, unless you want to be eaten alive. If you don’t care about that, the hostel is quite nice!

    Great location but sadly that’s all. Bed sheets and towel were damp and screwed up in a ball when I arrived at midnight - went to reception to ask about them but apparently that’s how they come. Not sure if they were clean and the room smelt pretty bad. One of the showers has no hot water and the other doesn’t have a door that shuts. I wanted to leave my bag at the hostel for an hour past check out time as I was going out for the morning and was made I pay 10RM to do so. Perfect location though

    Avoid at all costs!! Worse than expected. Definitely not a place for backpackers. I stayed in the big shared room and it was really bad. The room was full of old men (mostly Indian, Pakistani and Nepali) who were not in the city to travel but for work. Toilets were very busy and wet the whole time. The bunks weren’t very solid and the bed looked old and dirty. Originally booked for 3 nights but I only stayed one and the staff asked me to pay for the second night due to a “24h cancel policy”
