Love lane inn is by no means the worst hostel I've ever stayed in, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it!
My girlfriend and I, along with another friend, stayed for one night. The check in process was the slowest, most tedious ritual I have ever experienced - however the old guy checking us in was friendly enough.
We opted for the fan dorm for RM16 which is pretty cheap. The room was obviously pretty warm but we're used to it - other guests were not!
The big problem here is the cleanliness; my girlfriend and I were savaged by bedbugs! When we removed our sheet we could see loads of them crawling all over the mattress! Other guests had made the same complaints. The toilets are pretty gross, but not the worst I've seen.
We checked out in the morning and mentioned the bed bugs to the staff who acted very surprised. However by this point we had read the previous reviews on here and we're aware this is an ongoing issue that they must be well aware of.
We switched to Red Inn 56 which is directly next door - RM4 more per night and really nice and clean.
Interestingly later that day we saw the owner of Love Lane Inn stood on the street with our mattress trying to pick the bed bugs off by hand!
