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 cafe offering a wide range of food inclusive of vegetarian meals as well as coffee, herbal tea and milkshakes. 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 rooftop where our guests can chill and hang out with each other!

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 as well as 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. 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 private PODs offer privacy away from the dormitories. The private PODs have mattresses on raised platforms to give a Zen like feel. Some come with tinted window, all have wardrobe/bedside table, individual fan and light. Our dorms have double bunk beds, individual power sockets, individual lockers and with decent personal space. Each floor has two or three sharing kampong (village) design hot water shower cabins. Central AC units are placed strategically with blowers to all PODs and all designs and themes are chosen 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 WiFi, clean linen and towel, luggage storage, 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!

The hostel was great and the staff were so helpful with giving recommendations. They allowed my friend who was not staying there to leave her bag whilst we explore KL. I scored low on the atmosphere as there was not much going on but I think that was due to the heavy rain. Also I feel curtain rails on the beds would be super helpful to give you that privacy. The cushions were a bit hard and thick. Overall I would recommend this hostel as it’s so close to everything with it being in the centre.

This is a great hostel for a short stay in Kuala Lumpur, especially for a bit of sight seeing as well connected (train), but I wouldn’t recommend staying for more than 2/3 days unless you have done research before. The hostel was nice, clean beds and sheets, large lockers. The only door that locked (apparently) is the private rooms and female only dorms. The “social” area was not really that, not very many people around, and staff didn’t have any recommendations. Overall would recommend.
